Fortune Sound Club
April 4th, 2019

Brooklyn-based rapper Lil Tracy made his Vancouver debut at Fortune Sound Club on April 4. The sold out all-ages show drew in a crowd composed largely of adoring teenage fans. The youthful energy was kinetic; everyone was excited to see the GOTH BOI CLIQUE member fully realize himself on stage. Openers Lil Kawaii and Lil Raven performed dark, ominous sets with spacey, emotionally vulnerable trap soundscapes, preparing the crowd for Tracy.

It would be a disservice to not mention Lil Tracy’s outfit. Rocking a black Christian Dior visor, a custom white suit (apparently worth eight racks), and pearl- and diamond-studded necklaces, the gaudy display of Tracy’s deep conviction to impeccable high fashion was magnetic.

Tracy paid tribute to former GOTH BOI CLIQUE member Lil Peep, who passed away in 2017, with several songs they collaborated on. As the tragic party anthem “White Wine” came on, Tracy shouted “This one’s for Peep,” and the crowd chanted the lyrics with fervent elation. There were moments of levity in the set, including the hilarious country rap irony fest of “Like a Farmer.” The Goth Cowboy Tour is one of the most unique rap shows you can see in 2019.
