Gallery: Atmosphere Rocks U of M’s Homecoming 

A win has been pretty hard to come by for the Golden Gophers in TCF Stadium, but bringing Atmosphere in to help celebrate Homecoming was a victory for the home team.

The lights dropped after Coach Jerry Kill got the crowd jacked up for the game on Saturday, and fireworks shot off from across the field. Up came the backdrop reading “Atmosphere” and in came Slug, Ant, Erick and Nate.

The set list ranged from the new album “The Family Sign”, “Lucy Ford” and back to 1997’s “Overcast!” and people knew em all. Slug even commented during the show that people were singing along to the older selection, and that meant a lot to him. I have seen a lot of hip hop shows over the past two years, and Slug by far has the most engaging presence of anyone I have seen play live. With a simple request of putting a first in the air; no followup “come on ya’ll” of whatnot; people are all in with fists-a-plenty raised.

As I am writing this, the Gophers are losing to Nebraska 41-7. This is certainly not the way the U of M would have liked for their Homecoming game to go, but at least they had one hell of a party with Atmosphere last night.
