Snoop Doggy Dog

Last night (April 19) Williamsburg's expansive new venue, Brooklyn Bowl, was filled to the brim with Snoop Dogg fans. Dressed in a Yankees bomber jacket, the West Coast legend and his Dogg Pound ran through an hour-long set of their greatest hits.

Snoop opened up with his classic track "Murder Was the Case" and kept the momentum going with explosive performance of "Gin and Juice."

Towards the middle of the show The Doggfather held a tribute to hip-hop's beloved fallen soldiers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G, leading the crowd in a sing-along of the rap icons' biggest songs, including "Hail Mary" and "Hypnotize," respectively.

The show then took a smooth turn as the D-O-double G went into "Sexual Eruption." Surprisingly, Snoop's band transformed the laid back cut into a cover of House of Pain's "Jump Around," whipping the audience into a frenzy.

After finishing off his set with his funkdafied banger "Who Am I? (What's My Name?)," Snoop reminded everyone of the three most important things to do everyday--brush your teeth, be thankful for another day...and you know the rest.

Snoop Dogg's new album, More Malice, is in stores now.

DJ Fancypants (aka Paul Banks from Interpol aka Julian Plenti) opened the night.

Snoop follows that up with a 4/20 show at Irving Plaza in NYC tonight (4/20). More pictures the full setlist from last night (4/19), below...

categorize this under: stuff white people like

People forget: dude beat a murder rap doing a drive-by. He wasn't always the lovable cartoon from Old School. There's going to be security patdowns at Snoop shows.

that looks whiter than a Dave Matthews show

Were those dudes onstage in suits Snoop's security? I'd love to see one of those guys beat up an overaggressive fan in a fashionable cream-colored suit.

I wonder how Snoop feels that his audience is now made up mostly of white people who are there because it's soooooo ironic for them to be a a Snoopy Dog show!

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2010 4:11 PM

Ironic? It was a fucking blast. Get off of your high pony and try it sometime.

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2010 4:14 PM

Snoop Dogg isn't ironic. If it was Snow or something, maybe.

Only an hour though.

EXACTLY. Corny fucking shit. God forbid anyone put on a real west coast show in NYC.

i think one of the shots has a girl smoking some narcotics...very very bad

^----- they call it the "chronic". I think it means marijuana.

ughhhh..annoying white skinny girls who pretend to like black dick.

"seriously all white hipsters"

No, I saw two black guys in one of those audience shots!

So sad for Snoop, this looks like a fucking crowd for the National.

Snoop did this to himself. I'm sure he's cool with it.

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2010 5:21 PM

Well I bet that chick smoking weed in the picture front and center is probably not going to be to happy with that.

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2010 6:01 PM

So if there were 5 more black people in the pictures would that make it a cool show? What is the proper black person showing up threshold? Just curious so I know when to stay and when to leave in the future.

Hip hop show etiquette dictates a 60-40 black person:white person ratio in order to avoid wackness.

The song is Sexual Seduction, not Sexual Eruption.

Posted by Tammi | April 20, 2010 6:37 PM

Only hipsters & hippies pay $50 for a show.

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2010 6:39 PM

Sexual Seduction is the radio version. The album version is Sexual Eruption.

I was there - there were maybe 20 black folks I saw around.

Dudes in suits were most likely Nation of Islam. They have a habit of doing "security" for hip hop shows and entertainers. I worked security at a venue in Tempe in the late 90s when I went to ASU and the promoter had them work all of our hip hop shows. I've seen them stomp some people pretty hard and then polish their shoes on the loading dock right after.

I get it, according to BV posters, whites can only go see white artists or bands with no more than 1 black person in them unless the band plays world music and comes from Africa, and blacks have to go to black shows. Who knew 2010 was 1910?

That looks so white!!!

Posted by Bostitch | April 21, 2010 6:49 AM

Does it detract anything from the music the fact that most people in the crowd were white?
I guess no Black people in the crowd doesn’t make it Hip Hop. Get over it! Guarantee most making these silly comments are white!

Wow all this white bitching about the show mostly sounds like, "awww....my white ass would have loved to have been there but can't afford fifty bucks so I'm going to mock the people who can and were willing to pay it." It's Williamsburg. What do you expect? I had the time of my life and don't feel corny for rocking out to gin and juice.
