The crowd was small but warming as concertgoers scurried through the halls of the Filmore. The bar lines were empty because the majority of the attendees were underage, but they queued up for overpriced merch. Inside, the pit quickly filled with musty teens who snuck out on a school night to see the $uicideboy$. They gathered around in attempt to get a good spot to jump in circles when the show started. The DJ warmed up the crowd with a Lil Peep and XXXTentacion tribute, as no rap show is complete without one.
“Are you ready for the fucking boys?” the DJ yelled into the mike. The crowd roared in excitement as two five-foot-nothing boys walked into the flashing lights onstage. $crim, dressed in an oversize gray T-shirt, paced onstage while his blond-tipped dreadlocks hovered over his shoulders. His bearded cousin, Ruby da Cherry, greeted the pit with his hands up after pushing his wavy teal hair under his hat. “That wasn’t loud enough,” he said as he turned to $crim. “But fuck it. Let’s go.” Their set began with an oldie but goodie, “Kill Yourself, Part III,” and the crowd went wild. The seemingly calm group turned into a full-on rager in a matter of seconds, leaving no one safe in the pit. The security guards spent most of their time helping guests who'd fallen so they wouldn't be trampled.
The boys performed hits from all 40 of their EPs, but no concert is complete without special guests. Miami’s Fat Nick joined the duo onstage to perform “2 Hot 4 U.” Somehow the group of weed smokers found their way back into the pit, causing a mosh circle. Someone's blond girlfriend was pushed to the ground. “If you see someone fall, please help them back up,” Ruby pleaded. The moshing continued as South Florida rapper Pouya blessed the stage with a performance of the hit single “Suicidal Thoughts in the Back of the Cadillac,” which fit the show’s theme of killing yourself. (A Daily Beast story by former New Times reporter Tarpley Hitt revealed allegations of sexual assault against Pouya last month.) Last, Miami rapper Mikey the Magician contributed to the South Florida rapper reunion with his single “Chamber.”
