Steve Lacy played the Orpheum Theater on Monday night to a sold out audience. Newcomer, Foushee' opened the show with an energy and stage presence that I definitely was not expecting. Foushee' burst onto the stage dancing to all corners of the stage with non stop strobing lights. Foushee' recently found viral TikTok fame with her song "Deep End," that was used in a TikTok dance trend. She lived up to the hype Monday night and opened the night with the right vibe.

Steve Lacy emerged from the back of the stage surrounded with smoke at about 9:30PM. Lacy went on to play a couple of songs and then took a break to have a chat with the audience about his new found fame and how he is just a regular guy that likes to go to Target. Lacy played his songs "Buttons," "Playground," and "Give you the World." Towards the end of the show during Lacy's smash radio hit "Bad Habit," a fan threw a disposable camera at the stage, striking Lacy in the stomach. Lacy cut the music and asked the audience "Don't throw no s*** on the f****** stage, please." He then approached the fan and asked to see his camera. When the fan handed it over, Lacy smashed it to the ground and turned around and said "That's it, peace" and he ended the show.

The TikTok footage of the incident quickly went viral, prompting Lacy to share his thoughts on Instagram. "My shows been fun as hell!" "Shoutout to the people not throwing disposable cameras at me and just coming to catch a vibe and connect. i had a really good time in nola last night. i hate that the beauty of the connection i have with so many people in the crowd-gets lost when something negative happens." "I don't believe i owe anyone an apology- maybe i couldve reacted better? sure. always. i'm a student of life. but i'm a real person with real feelings and real reactions. i'm not a product or a robot. i am human."
