Going into Saturday night at Phuzz Phest in Winston Salem, NC, one of my most anticipated shows of the evening was seeing Durham rapper Eggy Strange at Reanimator Records. Being a venue that has a max capacity below 50 people, I knew this would be a rare opportunity that I would not want to miss out on. Right before the show started, Eggy was asked if he wanted the lights on and he thankfully declined which resulted in just one lamp being brought out to serve as the lighting for the entire space.
Eggy was only accompanied by one other member who was put in charge of running the laptop beats to run in the background. From here, the rest of the show consisted of Eggy walking around his tiny corner with mic in hand and lyrics spilling out from the soul. Eggy Strange is currently signed under Cardigan Records which is also based out of North Carolina.
