Watsky‘s recent Madison show at the High Noon Saloon has been the talk of the town these last few days. The San Francisco-based poet-turned-hip-hop phenomenon wooed the local crowd with his lightening fast rhymes and irresistible charisma.
Photographer Matt Apps spent the evening snapping away and has graciously allowed us to share his shots of this ridiculously fun concert with our readers. Check out his work after the jump.

George Watsky doesn’t make sense. Not because he’s a skinny white boy who raps. Not because he performs slam poetry to audiences who love hip hop. Not because he rhymes over sick beats about wedgie-ing Wednesday’s butt crack. It’s because more people don’t know how awesome he is.
Last Wednesday Watsky graced Madison with his presence and taught High Noon Saloon that unusual is better and lisps sssound sssexy. He describes his situation best in “All I Ever Wanted”: “My look’s wrong / I know I sound odd / But when I hit the mic the first time / I found God.”

I have been stalking Watsky for the last six years. He’s a tricky one, I tell you, evading me every chance he gets. But the joke is on him because tonight he’s on my turf, performing right here in Madison at the High Noon Saloon at 9:00pm (tickets here).
Here I am in my tent, camped out in front of High Noon Saloon in order to ensure me a spot front and center at what is sure to be the show of the year. The Wi-Fi isn’t the best, but I’ll do what I have to do. It’s a labor of love.
What makes me such a huge fan, you ask? Watsky is a poet and rapper whose body of work has always been nothing short of rock solid. He started to turn heads in 2006 as the Youth Speaks Grand Slam Poetry Champion and Brave New Voices International Poetry Slam Champion. Since then, I’ve watched his career grow and change as he explores new and different styles. Though the product has varied as he’s grown as a person and an artist, his work has always be rooted in his strong voice, views, and sense of humor.
