After listening. to Dillon’s new album “Money Sucks Friends Rule” it was clear to me I wanted to see him when he made his tour stop in Chicago. That says a lot considering the last time I saw Dillon in Chicago he played at the Aragon Ballroom with Excision and both were disappointing to say the least. Since then Dillon has released several hit tracks; “Messages” and “Get Low” just to name a few that lead to his album release.

Trippy Turtle was a nice surprise as the opening act right before Dillon came on stage. He played a nice mix of 90’s rap songs with a trappy remixes and mash ups. The crowd responded well and got down to the funky beats.
From the moment Dillon came on, dropping the black sheet covering up his intricate stage set up, it was clear it was going to be a great show. He started out with “I Cant Believe It’s Not Butter” which matched the already high energy the crowd was projecting. Dillon did nothing short of facilitating a high energy house party in a mainstream event with 5000 of his closest friends. The whole set was fun. The confetti drop was great and having the whole venue sing along to ” When We Were Young” brought everyone together.
Check out the handful of pictures i took from the balcony before rushing downstairs to join the party.
