Scene | Action Bronson Kept It Short And Sweet At House Of Blues
Last night, the temperature in the city plunged into the single digits, but for a couple hours, the chill brought on by the latest Polar Vortex was an afterthought as Action Bronson and Party Supplies rocked House of Blues during the Cleveland stop of the Blue Chips 2 tour. The crowd filtered in slowly by the bunches but by the time the projection screen rose and the evening’s opening act took to the stage, the floor was reaching capacity.
After the intermission, the lights dimmed and Billy Joel’s “Movin’ Out (Anthony’s Song)” echoed throughout the building. Those in the audience who were familiar with the song felt compelled to sing along with it. The words “It’s me” were uttered by Action Bronson as he began his set with “Silverado” from the Blue Chips 2album. Continuing with the album’s sequencing, Big Body Bes’ “Intro” and “Pepe Lopez” followed after a chant of “Free Big Body” from the crowd.
