“Fuck me up! Fuck me up!” the sold-out crowd chanted. Party Favor happily obliged. On the closing leg of his headlining Tuned Out Tour, PF, and friends took over Seattle’s Showbox Market Saturday for a night filled with head banging and booty shaking. A regular around these parts, we know how fun PF shows are. This show, in particular, was just that…and more.
Local favorites Heroes for Gold and Subsonic Drops kicked things off as the crowd filed in. By the time 4B, the special guest of the night took the stage, the dance floor was packed! As 4B slayed with his signature Jersey club sound, the Showbox turned into a sweatbox. It was hot! An all-ages show, the 21+ crowd was able to find some breathing room in the two massive bar areas. The younger crowd? Not so much. Despite the conditions, everyone was loud and turnt up the entire night. You could tell the performers were feeding off that energy.
After 4B’s last song, the lights faded to black as Party Favor’s custom stage was unveiled. The rig was one of the more creative ones we’ve seen at the Showbox: two rows of six old-school televisions, with the DJ deck perched on top. “What’s up Seattleeeeeee,” Party Favor yelled, as he built up the first big drop of his set. For the next hour and a half, a healthy dose of trap, hip-hop remixes, bass, and PF originals old and new were served. Some of his biggest reactions came when he played Baby Got Back, Every Time We Touch, and Eiffel 65’s Blue– dance floor classics anyone can get down to!
With 15 minutes left in his set, 4B returned to the stage and performed a b2b set with PF. Individually, these two know how to bring it. Together? Things went to another level! Opening with Nelly’s Hot In Here (fitting at this point), the two unleashed a flurry of bass and hard trap- prompting mosh pits left and right. The night came to a close with PF playing his favorite song, Marvin Gaye‘s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, as ocean blue lasers swayed gently, like wheat in a field- the crowd singing word for word.
While PF couldn’t oblige with the “one more song!” chants, we know he’ll be back in Seattle sooner, rather than later, for another round of shenanigans. We can’t wait! Did you go to the show as well? What was your favorite moment? Let us know in the comments below!
