June 5th was the Dallas leg of the Epik High North American Tour and I was able to go!
I had a press pass but the line was incredibly long; I got to the venue, South Side Music Hall, around 5:30 and the Texas sun was blazing down. We waited in line for about an hour and a half before being let into the venue. (I had general admission tickets to the Meet and greet and the VIP ticket holders got in before me). We waited inside for another 30 minutes for the rest of the people to get inside and then we were graced with the presence of DJ Tukutz, Mithra Jin and Tablo. The first song was ‘Encore’ from their last album ‘Shoebox’. The rest of the concert included a mix of old and new hits like: ‘Burj Khalifa’, ‘Umbrella’, ‘Cold with label mate Lee Hi’ and ‘Rich featuring Big Bang’s Taeyang’. There was a short Q+A session where the three answered fan questions they were given earlier.

The concert ended with the trio donned in Texas style hats finishing with the song everyone was waiting for, ‘Born Hater’. They signed t-shirts and hats and threw them into the crowd during the song and even took a picture with the crowd. This was one of the best concerts I went to; the energy was high ( pun intended) the entire night and the love was felt from Epik High to the fans.
