BEING THERE: Moosh & Twist @ The TLA



Hometown heroes DeQuincy Coleman McRae (Moosh, right) and Oliver Feighan (Twist, left) have gone from local rappers/Friends Select alums to globe-trotting recording artists who collaborate with the likes of Hoodie Allen. Friday night at the TLA kicked off with South-Philly up-and-comer Major Van Winkle and the Philly-bred live hip-hop act Ground Up, who recently sold out the Union Transfer with their vibrant-yet-dirty bars & heavy hitting drums. At half past 10, OCD: Moosh & Twist took the stage and unleashed their heavy and intricate bars, mixing in oldies — “Hold It Down,” “Take Me Back” and “All Alright” — with various new and as of yet unreleased anthems. This being at least the fifth time OCD has played the TLA, they’ve clearly learned how to work the room for maximum impact and Friday night they put on a ridiculously hype show. — DYLAN LONG
