It was a chill Sunday evening on the beach, before OutKast hit the main stage at the 2014 Hangout Festival, and showed the crowd what the ATLiens were all about.
Performers like Jack Johnson delivered laid back sets earlier in the day, but Big Boi and Andre 3000 didn’t waste any time turning energy levels all the way up, and jumped right into the bass-fueled cut “B.O.B.”
Where to go from here? Into all of their greatest hits, that’s where. OutKast was in golden form for the last show of the weekend.
Three Stacks, with his penchant for off-the-wall outfits, kept it weird and wonderful in a white wig and black jumper emblazoned with the text, “Big girls are beautiful to me.” And then there was the reversible “For Sale/Sold Out” sign hanging from his waist — a glimpse into his thoughts, perhaps?
Big Boi balanced Andre’s quirky getup with a fresh white button down shirt and matching shorts, splattered with floral prints.
Classics like “Rosa Parks” and “Ms. Jackson” were peppered into the first round of songs — making the crowd go absolutely insane — and Sleepy Brown’s cameo for “SpottieOttieDopaliscious” was a trip of its own. Because only Sleepy could make a pair of silk pajamas look so good onstage.
