His live shows are almost exactly what you'd expect. His songs are hard hitting and full of bass that will make it impossible for you to stand still. If you're planning on seeing him live after listening to his music, don't be shocked if you get lumped into a mosh pit here or there. That's what it's all about though, the energy. Pouya's fast rapping mixed with his dark production will set the tone for the show, and you can guarantee he'll bring out a couple friends of his while he's at it. If that kinda show is what you're into, you can buy tickets to his show on August 12th here.
Here are some reviews from his previous live shows:
"The brand of hip-hop that Pouya and his friends create couldn't lend itself more to a college town party setting. Their rhymes are delivered in a rapid-fire fashion, the beats all feature thunderous 808's and skittering hi-hats, and nearly every song includes an easy "3-2-1" countdown for when the crowd should lose their shit." - shuttlecockmusic.com
"Pouya was absolutely incredible. The concert went from 5:30-10pm and he came out on stage around 8:20pm after the smaller acts performed. The whole concert was high energy and Pouya definitely knows how to engage with a crazy mosh pit. I was extremely happy that he performed not only his new album but his old stuff as well. His performance was great and in real life he sounds exactly how he does on his tracks. I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys underground rap and mosh pits." - hannahlarsen @ songkick.com
"This was definitely the best concert Iâve been to. Pouya was an gave the most amazing performance along with everybody else. The crowd was raging and made the experience even better" - noelle-tanahuvia @ songkick.com
