Waken Baken... Pittsburgh Shaken


Friday night I attended the second sold out Waken Baken Tour show Wiz Khalifa packed at the new AE Stage in the North Shore.  Fans were shoulder to shoulder as Wiz came out on stage after Rostrum Records recent Taylor Allderdice graduate Mac Miller opened.  Wiz went from hoodie, to t-shirt, then t-shirt to shirtless as fans went wild.  His set list included all the songs his fan base they call the "Taylor Gang" enjoyed.  Wiz and his hype man Chevy Woods opened with "Pittsburgh Sound" and ended the show with the Billboard top 100's number 11 hit "Black and Yellow" and "This Plane." After being backstage a minute the "Wiz" chants began to explode from the crowd.  He then rushed the stage with  all of his friends to round out the evening with a surprise  unreleased song  "Taylor Gang."
