Max Mode was a dope shoot. It was filmed inside a space themed escape room, perfect for the story behind the video. It was a long but productive day, definitely some gold moments captured both photos and videos. Also, we had Jersey Mike's Subs for lunch - it was good. CHARGE ME UP!
2018 has been quite a year so far for effohhexx, and what a way to celebrate the halfway point - as well as yours truly's exact birth date - with the debut of my brother Caleon's first festival.
Blurry Vision was produced by the one and only Golden Voice, and during the development and seeking talent for line up, they discovered Caleon when he opened up a show in San Francisco back in the wintertime. Caleon is still very new to performing live but his one of a kind sound and energy drew their attention and grasped this opportunity. All of us are still in shock for him to be less than a year's worth of experience performing live to be on a lineup alongside SZA, Brockhampton and other various artists.
I have a good handful of other photos to go through, but I wanted to prioritize the performance photos first so I could share them as soon as possible. More to add to this story, but I will tell you that Caleon really brought the energy and we really got the crowd JUMPIN'. No exaggeration. And even crazier, most of the songs he performed were from his unreleased ep. Meaning that no one in the crowd has heard the songs before.
Thanks everyone who came out to watch, and if you're not already keeping up with us, I suggest you do..it's only going up from here. To the skies.
Potatoes were served with gravy on this night at Union with Caleon Fox and Yung Gravy. The tour had two stops in California, both in SF and in LA and gravy asked Caleon if he could come through and open. As you know, sensei brought maximum health to the crowd and got them all jumping, moshing, and having a great time despite majority of them not knowing who he was.
Shoutouts to the gravy train for letting effohhexx tag along and rock with y'all! Please enjoy a collection of my favorites from the night!
Your favorites got together to hang out (cause yes they are real life friends) and made a video together. I won't say what the video is quite yet (cause I actually don't really know) but stay tuned on Caleon's YouTube channel 'till further notice.
Some moments I unfortunately did not capture:
- Roy spilling the hot sauce that directly went on Meech's hoodie pocket (hence why you may see a wet spot on his hoodie)
- Even funnier, Meech not caring much because he was in the middle of eating some life changing Gus's Fried Chicken
- While filming, we saw a guy walk past and look curiously, but continued walking. Shortly after, two kids and a mom ran over and wanted to take photos with Roy. As it was happening, the same random guy came out of the cuts and joined the photo taking. For the longest time I thought he was a part of the other two kids, but he walked back off in his own direction after his photo.
- Effoh's current inside joke is "f**k Buffalo Wild Wings!" ever since Caleon got his stomach upset from eating it, and well, BWW just so happens one of Meech's favorite place, so you know what went down, they squared up! After they finished their scuffle, Caleon transforms to his 'hood' character (as seen on the Effohhexx goes to LA video) in mere seconds.
Anyway, that's just a little bit of what went down. All good times and laughs. Oh, and I can't forget to mention that later that night was Vila's first time playing Fortnite, and oh man he's a natural. Caleon and I had an amazing time getting excited with him getting some sneaky kills.
