The club was going up on a Thursday with Yung Gravy and Dillon Francis at Franklin Music Hall last week!

“When I say gravy, you say train!”



Fans brought handmade signs and flags to express their adoration for Yung Gravy as they chanted this mantra. Yung Gravy‘s set was full of antics like throwing lunchables and cereal into the crowd, and donning a bathrobe and handing out roses for Valentine’s Day.

The crowd totally lost it for favorites like “Mr. Clean” and “Oops.” During his set, Yung Gravy announced that he has a new album coming after this tour, along with other new musical projects.

When shooting for a concert, photographers are usually allowed the first three songs in the pit in front of the stage. The funny thing about shooting a Dillon Francis set is that there is no telling when one song ends and the next begins. As he seamlessly transitioned from track to track, I noticed a security guard peeking at his watch to see how much time had passed. Eventually he realized what was happening, and we left the pit after a generous amount of time taking photos. The subwoofers were so loud that I could feel my entire body vibrating. It was amazing.

Dillon Francis (also known as his German alter ego DJ Hanzel) is known to transcend genres in his music. At one point he mixed “Welcome to the Black Parade” by My Chemical Romance to “Get Low” (his song with DJ Snake, not the one by Lil Jon) to “I Want It That Way” by the Backstreet Boys.

Dillon Francis led the crowd through a series of positive affirmations like “My contribution to society will be posting cool pictures and videos on Instagram,” and “I will be on that grind.” The meditation concluded with his own mantra, “I will not give a fuck or shit” (“IDGAFOS” is the acronym for “I Don’t Give a Fuck or Shit” and the title of his debut single released in 2011).

On February 4th of this year, Dillon Francis and Yung Gravy dropped a surprise EP together titled “Cake and Cognac.” To wrap up the party, Gravy joined Francis on stage to pop champagne and play new tracks from their EP.
