Vince Staples
Showbox SoDo, Seattle, WA

Headlining one of the most dynamic tours in 2019, Compton-born rapper Vince Staples remains authentic to the person he set out to be when he started his career. Seemingly unphased by others’ opinions, everything he produces is so damn good—especially when it came to the “Smile, You’re On Camera” tour.
A packed house filled Seattle’s Showbox Sodo. Many artists walk on that stage, a variety of acts sell a lot of tickets, but only a few create specific energy. The sound of the show was far from routine, with rhythmic, soul-bearing energy and Vince’s ability to command the stage so effortlessly. It was an experience all it’s own. If The “Smile, You’re On Camera” tour is coming to your town, it’s definitely worth a ticket—you won’t be disappointed.
