Show Review: The Pangea Reunion Show (aka The House Party of the Year)

by

If you love St. Louis hip-hop and weren't at Pangea's house party reunion show in south city last night, then I am truly sorry for you. The past, present and future of St. Louis hip-hop were all gathered in one room, performing and having a blast.

While the event was promoted heavily with flyers and on MySpace pages, it still managed to be low-key. The crowd was large but friendly, and the show went down in the basement of the house. It was smoky, crowded and hot as hell, just like a good house party should be.  

The hosts of the party, the Midwest Avengers, opened things up with a handful of their rock/rap jams.

Next up were the stars of the evening, Rockwell Knuckles and Wafeek, reunited under the banner of Pangea.
