It was a monumental day for sports yesterday – Opening Day for Major League Baseball. To celebrate this, the MLB Fan Cave in New York City had their own opening festivities with free musical performances open to the public throughout the day. To close out the evening, “Like a G6” stars Far East Movement performed.
Within minutes of doors opening, the venue was filled with fans eager to see the group perform. Surrounded by dozens of televisions playing the games that were being held at that moment in time. DJ Virman soon took the stage and began his mix to their “I Party” intro.
The group played seven songs, including “If I Was You” and their homage to the Beastie Boys, “So What”. The performance included a break in the music to Linkin Park’s “One Step Closer”. which included a freestyle rap by the group. With an introduction by Kev Nish shredding guitar, the room exploded when the group’s Billboard hit, “Like A G6” was performed. The group, understanding the importance of crowd interaction, threw teeshirts into the crowd and also allowed several fans to sing Dev’s hook.
Far East Movement are no strangers to the term “dreamers”. The group has been together since 2003, and have spent all that time working their way up to the top, making it appropriate for the group to thank their fans for spreading the word, representing, and never giving up on them.
“If there’s one thing we live by, growing up in LA, growing up in New York, it doesn’t matter where you’re from as long as you follow your dreams,” Kev Nish says before beginning the song. The chorus was sung along with intense harmonization from the crowd, attesting to the message.
The set was closed out with their latest single “Live My Life”. To amp up the crowd, the members created a “West Side”/”East Side” battle, to see which side of the audience could be the craziest and most energetic. The room exploded with dancing, jumping, and singing. The band closed out by announcing the new album, which erupted in chants from the crowd.
Far East Movement will be touring on the “Sorry For Party Rocking Tour” with labelmates LMFAO, Natalia Kills, and Matthew Koma.
