Does Fat Tony know how to throw a party? The answer will always and forever be "Hell Yeah!" With the help of sponsor Remy Martin, Tony invited his Houston homies DJ Good Grief, Bombón and Rai P to assist him with the kickoff soiree for his upcoming tour. Our own Marco Torres sent in this visual summary of the event, held this past Saturday at The Summit, a new-ish venue located at 3536 Navigation Blvd. in the East End.
This must be the place. Very cool spot, making shows feel part house party and part warehouse rave. We has a nice chat with Mike McMullin, one of the primary coordinators of the venue. Looking forward to more events here in the future.
Always cool to hear DJ Good Grief in the mix. So knowledgable about HTown music, and always willing to share his wisdom. Check out his latest mix "198Great" on his website djgoodgrief.com
No smoking (inside), which means....
.... the back patio was the place to be, especially because the weather was perfect, and the open bar full of Remy and Topo Chico was located here.
Back inside, DJ Navo and his Bombon buddies treated the crowd to fun, tropical vibes and dance tunes.
Opener Rai P wearing an appropriate tee. At first glance, he resembles Chance The Rapper, but he quickly took the turn into raunchy and swaggerific territory. I was especially impressed with the freestyle he ended his show with.

Some of the side effects of Rai P's set. A little ass shaking and spilled beer never hurt anyone!
This hand painted banner meant it was time for Large Anthony.

Not sure who was hypnotizing who...
Tony had everyone doing The Southside dance.
Good luck on the tour, sir! Keep it trill, homie.
