Sasquatch 2013, Day 3: El-P

photos by Matthew Thompson

As clouds began to gather (though they wouldn’t actually be super ominous until Earl Sweatshirts set) El-P took stage to a large audience totally ready to get down with the talented east coast rapper. He would later be called a brother to Killer Mike – and his ability to get the crowd moving whether it be through an acapella rendition of a track or with the thick almost orchestral feel of his backing keytarist, and drum/guitarist, shows us exactly why he is so well known. One memorable moment included when the keyboardist played a solo, then ran onto the speakers, almost as if he intended to toss or smash the keyboard, before running back with a gleeful smile on his face. El-P spent most of his set on the speakers, spitting right to the audience, wasting no space getting his powerful raps across.
