Davidson, North Carolina - If you didn't know better you would have thought that January 23, was another normal campus weekend at Davidson college, but those who managed to check out

Mike Posner

and

Chiddy Bang

's show for the university’s winter festival know it was anything but. While the venue seemed to outmatch the talent coming to the stage that night, there was no denying a great opportunity to have a good time once the music started.

Starting off the festivities were Chiddy Bang and

Xaphoon

, who made their way on to the stage first in front of a packed atrium, and had one of the most entertaining live performances I’ve seen in awhile. They flowed through their set and touched on the fan favorite tracks from

The Swelly Express

. Chiddy also did one of the better freestyles I’ve seen in a live show, becoming the first artist I've heard kick a rhyme off with "snooglie booglie." Xaphoon also did his part to kill his beats, giving the attending crowd even more reason to get loud.

It didn’t seem like there was any more energy left in the crowd once they left the stage, but as soon as Posner greeted the audience the liveliness was restored as he moved from track to track, covering songs from his previous

mixtapes

(including the fan favorite

Drug Dealer Girl

). Posner definitely delivered on his reputation as a dope live performer and his set helped ensure the night's up-tempo and exciting atmosphere. While the concert lasted only a few hours, the entirety of the performance was enough to remember for some time to come.
