Last month Masked Gorilla & DC Shoes UNMASKED Concert Series wrapped 2016 with one of our biggest concerts ever featuring The Underachievers. We're going to release a full recap of UNMASKED 2016, so I'll save the talk about the 5 months of 5 sold out concerts for that, for now let's focus on how insane The Underachievers concert was.  Issa Gold came to Pouya's UNMASKED concert last summer, as The Underachievers would later take Pouya and The Buffet Boys on tour that following fall. I ran into Issa outside of the venue before Pouya's show started. Before I could even say anything he said to me: "Why don't you ever book The Underachievers for one of these UNMASKED shows? We're waiting on it." I gave Issa an honest reply, laughing, saying: "You guys are way too big for us, way out our price range." A year later, after 4 straight months of 4 sold out concerts this summer, I figured it was time to celebrate. No, I didn't buy a diamond Masked Gorilla chain. Instead I booked one of the biggest acts UNMASKED has ever hosted, The Underachievers. None of this, especially not this concert, would not have been possible without the support of DC Shoes and Skullcandy. I can't thank them enough for giving us the opportunity to create these once in a lifetime concerts. Once again, I'll save the talk about that for the official UNMASKED '16 recap post. Let's get back to The Underachievers UNMASKED concert. It was Halloween weekend and it was absolutely insane. The venue almost crumbled under the excitement from the crowd. Issa and AK were the most kind, appreciative, and down to earth rock stars ever. Their interview was so eye opening and inspiring. I can't thank them enough for giving UNMASKED '16 the most insane send off.
