Lil Dicky SXSW 2016
Lil Dicky SXSW 2016

Few artists have taken the music scene by storm quite like David Andrew Burd.  In case you don’t know who that is, he goes by the stage name Lil Dicky or LD.  Lil Dicky is an American rapper and comedian who came to prominence in 2014 with the release of “Ex-Boyfriend” on YouTube.  The song, an ode to jealousy and misunderstood relationship statuses, hit over a million views in 24 hours and thrust him into the spotlight immediately.  Since then, he’s released his debut album “Professional Rapper” that features hilarious songs like “$ave Dat Money”, “Lemme Freak”, Professional Rapper”, and “Classic Male Pregame”.  “$ave Dat Money” has thrown him into a different echelon of musical recognition, hitting #71 in the Billboard Hot 100.

So it was with great anticipation that we saw him perform at SXSW 2016 at The Main last night.  And boy did he nail it.  From taking off his clothing and dancing with a female member of the audience to throwing an entire birthday cake (it was in-fact his birthday) into the audience, his antics were not only hilarious but fun.

But let’s not forget the music.  His performance had the entire audience pumping fists and jumping to the bass-heavy music like it was New Years Eve.  Without a doubt, the evening climaxed as the iconic intro for “$ave Dat Money” came on. Everyone in the audience not only new the lyrics, but proceeded to sing along with LD from start to finish.

The Main concert venue is a small one that packs a punch.  And artists like Lil Dicky are the reason we keep going back to it.  He took a small stage crammed full of fans and music lovers and turned it into an unforgettable night.  From start to finish, it was one of the better performances at the artist-filled-SXSW.
