We had the pleasure of seeing Riot Ten headline at the North Warehouse in Portland, Oregon, presented by Rose Entertainment! The North Warehouse is a relatively new venue located in a unique warehouse setting in the northeast Portland area.
Even though this was not our first time at the venue, as always, it was a pleasure. The venue staff is so friendly and ensures everyone in the crowd is having a great time. The venue features a $5 coat check, indoor and outdoor bathrooms, bar, and an outdoor stage.
The East Annex 360-degree stage is a new addition to the venue, but was unfortunately not open at this show. The North Warehouse allows flow toys, so folks perform flow arts around the venue. It is the little things like this that truly pull an event together, aside from the music, of course.
The show on February 24th had such lively energy and everyone looked like they were enjoying themselves and the music. Local talent Mob Boss b2b Taj Malik and then VitaminV b2b Bloodklotz opened up the night, followed by Guppi, Emorfik, and Riot Ten. The crowd was buzzing during VitaminV b2b Bloodklotz, who both brought the heat with their sets! This set the tone for the night off right to a great start.
Guppi and Emorfik both played heavy bass as well, and the crowd went wild for both. Emorfik recently become popular on social media for his mixing videos played dark riddim with accompanying visuals. This opening set up the stage perfectly for Riot Ten to blow it up.
29-degree dubstep doesn’t disappoint
They also had artists playing outside, in 29-degree weather. The outdoor stage lineup deserves a special shoutout: the house and techno vibes were immaculate. Prior to the show, the North Warehouse posted video footage of their crews shoveling all the snow that had been packed down in the outdoor area throughout the snowstorm that had happened merely two days prior. Despite the weather concerns that many appeared to have expressed online, the show went on, and the crowd was happy it did.
Riot Ten brought a mix of trap, as well as heavy bass mixed with popular reggaeton. He played some throwbacks, some classics, and of course many amazing tracks to headbang to. Riot Ten expertly blended these various genres into a unique live show experience that kept the crowd wanting more. See a video of Riot Ten performing here! The energy in the room was palpable, and the show was a success.
We had such a great time at Riot Ten and are happy that he and his crew, and incredible support made a stop in Portland! Big thanks to the North Warehouse and Rose Entertainment for putting on this fun event. Be sure to check out these remarkable artists: Taj Malik, VitaminV, Bloodklotz, Guppi, Emorfik, and Riot Ten, as well as those who were playing outside!
