Spank Rock, Sweatheart, and Shodekeh at Talking Head

Last night, went again to one of the last few shows at the Talking Head Club in Baltimore.
This evening was a concert featuring underground hip hop artist Spank Rock and the DJs known as the Baltimore Bass Connection.
First up was Sodekeh, member of the International Beatbox Association, with his beatbox partner Max G.
They were pretty cool. I liked it when they recreated the Clipse's "Grindin'" beat. I think he was also using circular breathing in some parts.
The second act was a group from South Philly called Sweatheart. The band had Amanda Blank who also raps with Spank Rock. They were rock-electro-pop band that had hilarious songs about finger banging and diarrhea. All the members of the band had on oversized t-shirts and tights.
By the time Spank Rock hit the stage, the Talking Head was packed and hot. This has been quite a year for this regional hip hop artist.
Needless to say, it was an incredibly high energy set. They let audience members dance up on stage with them. It got pretty chaotic, but it was fun, reminding more of a house party than a concert.
Amanda Blank joined Spank Rock on a few songs. A South Philly girl who raps filthy lyrics - hot!
I was kitty cornered stage right near the speaker, and I was lucky to shoot some great closeup pictures of the night.
