Princess Nokia at House of Vans

On Wednesday, June 7th, The Drums and Princess Nokia performed at House of Vans. Doors for the show opened at 7PM and I ended up arriving at 8, with Nokia scheduled to go on at 8:30. I overheard a security guard tell someone the show was already at capacity with the GA line down the block of people still trying to get inside. 

Princess Nokia was full of energy (her third song was "Brujas," with the line "Don't you fuck with my energy"), and a large portion of the crowd were clearly her fans, singing along to every word. She gave a shout out to the Smart Girls Club, mooned the audience, told anyone to come up front if they felt unsafe, crowdsurfed during one song, and said that she loved her job and if she was ever sad, one should smack her in the face.
