Sweaty bodies, karate moves, and moshpits set the mood for the night as Denzel Curry’s Melt My Eyes USA Tour, which came through The Fillmore Silver Spring last week.
Opening acts playdatboizay, AG Club, and the DMV’s own Redveil all had the room shaking as security spent the whole night pushing the crowd back from the rumbling barricade and handing out water.
When it was time for the main event on Oct. 4, Denzel ran through nearly the entire first half of his latest album Melt My Eyes See Your Future, starting things out with its first three tracks, “Melt Session #1“, “Walkin,” and “Worst Comes to Worst.” He took control of the moshpit making everyone stop and stay still, only setting them loose once the beat and chorus dropped for “Ain’t No Way.”
Zeltron switched things up from there, performing some of his most high-energy records from all over his discography. He set the place on fire performing songs like “Ultimate,” “SUMO l ZUMO,” and “RICKY” while doing karate back and forth across the stage and interacting with the crowd — but balanced things out with more melodic and smooth records like “This Life” and “BLACK BALLOONS l 13LACK 13ALLOONZ.”

Denzel brought things back up to speed with “X-Wing”before getting to his biggest hit “CLOUT COBAIN l CLOUT CO13A1N” and closing things out with “The Ills” the final track from the Melt Your Eyez album. He left the stage momentarily before running back out for an encore and telling everyone to get low to the ground. He hilariously called out anyone who dare to ignore the command, “YOU with the curly hair, get down,” “Aye white shirt, what you too good to get down?”
Once everyone was crouched, the chorus of “ULT” started to play and everyone jumped up starting the frenzy all over again as he performed the hit from his first album, sending the sweaty kids home happy.
