Joey Bada$$ And Pro Era, Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers @ Peter’s Room, Portland 3/21/13

The Beast Coastal Tour kicked off in Portland last night with performances from Joey Bada$$ and his Pro Era crew, Flatbush Zombies, and the Underachievers. The inspired grouping played the small venue Peter’s Room, as opposed to Roseland upstairs, allegedly because Joey wanted a more intimate room. His set mostly pulled from 1999 and P.E.E.P: The aPROcalypse, though the Brooklyn rapper did play a song from a new album he’s working on. The crew shouted out the late Capital Steez a few times, asking the audience to flash peace signs in his honor. We sent Colin McLaughlin to capture the evening. Check out his pics in the gallery above, along with Nardwuar’s recent interviews with Joey & Pro Era and Flatbush Zombies below.
