Philly Concert Tea:Youngr’s Vibes at Coda Last Night Made Us All Feel Younger

Out of the many, many wonderful things to take away from London based Youngr‘s highly explosive show at Coda last night, the one thing that truly stood out was that he really, really loves his fucking music and performing it just as fierce. 

Whether it was from his ignited opening beats that were perfectly mashed up with Stardust‘s classic club romp, “Music Sounds Better With You” to the left handers love felt on “Too Keen,” to his admiration for fellow London based beat bro, Craig David (by the way, Mr. Youngr, “Last Night” for life..I know you’ll get it), or to the way the crowd just felt his pulsating live take on his latest life banger, “Out of My System,” Youngr just simply served out all kinds of delicious music vibes last night.

And that wasn’t even including the performance of soon-to be-smash, “1993,” which took us back to a less in demand time when social media didn’t rule our worlds…pure fucking bliss

Oh, and his on-stage relationship with his heart/life pounding drummer as well as his brother who rocked it the fuck out on guitar? Priceless and certainly live music bro worthy.

But if there’s one thing we might have forgotten about while watching Youngr’s show last night is that how much he does up on that stage–vocals, keyboard, controls, drums, fucking cowbell–this dude does it all.

However, it’s certainly not a bad thing not to realize just how busy he truly is up there because we were all too busy getting lost in all of that live music heat that Youngr supplied us with…which is indeed his number one agenda. 

And that esteemed agenda was certainly accomplished at Coda last night. Groove the fuck on, Mr. Youngr. The world ain’t ready. Wait, yaaaas, we most certainly are. 

For much, much more about all things Youngr, sit down at the Philly Mixtape music tea table where the tremendously talented music artist served up a bloody good spill earlier this week.
