Shortly after appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel show FIDLAR (an famous acronym for Fuck it Dog Life’s A Risk) made their way down to Atlanta to play a sold out show on the Hell Section of the Masquerade Friday, Oct. 2. The doors opened at 7 p.m. and it didn’t take long for the room to pack out for the band’s opener, the Australian punk group Dune Rats.
Dune Rats certainly warmed up the audience for the main act with their skuzzy renditions of songs like “Dali Lama” and “Fuck it,” to the point where many audience members swarmed the merch table almost immediately after the band got off the stage.
FIDLAR hit the stage closer to 10 p.m. and played a 45 minute set full of old hits from their 2013 self-titled debut. But the band definitely pulled out all the stops with their newer material like “40 oz. on Repeat,” “West Coast,” and others from Too released back in September. Not only was the show impressive, but the band brought the loud while sounding incredibly tight for just being on the scene for less than five years.
FIDLAR closed the show with “Cocaine” to a delighted audience. Zac Carper asked the audience to “get weird” and demanded everyone to sit down on the floor. Most, if not all, of the audience did as they were told. Then, the guitar and drums built up towards the climax of the song and everyone started jumping and moshing again.
The band is currently still on tour and if they are playing in your area, you should definitely buy a ticket because they do not disappoint. For more information visit the band’s website
