Australian genre-benders Chase Atlantic sell-out the Rockwood Music Hall in New York City, with De’Wayne Jackson

A line of freezing fans wrapped around the block, waiting in anticipation for the moment they finally get let in. People of all ages came out to see Chase Atlantic play a sold out show at Rockwood Music Hall, including quite a few whom I saw try to get in without tickets, with no such luck.

With support from De’Wayne Jackson, a rapper from Texas, he (very easily) hyped the audience with a vibe and flow I found very similar to the great Childish Gambino. He performed a short yet impactful set that will definitely resonate with anyone who has the pleasure of watching him perform.  

Chase Atlantic’s introduction was a clip of Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO TOUR Llif3” music video which was very suiting for the Australian artists as they, similar to Uzi, take inspiration from several genres to create their own, unique and powerful sound.

They came out to a screaming and bouncing crowd and a ton of Snapchat recordings. The intimate setting of Rockwood Music Hall deemed itself perfect for this group of over 100 die-hard fans and it seemed everyone in the room knew every word to every song. After closing their set with their new song “Okay”, Chase Atlantic came back out for a final encore, giving the unceasing audience what they were begging for.

It’s been a while since I’ve experienced a show quite like this one, and I’d definitely recommend seeing what it’s all about for yourself. It’s definitely more than just hype.
