Atlanta’s Young Thug built some serious momentum last year by releasing his incendiary 1017 Thug mixtape on Gucci Mane’s 1017 Brick Squad imprint, which has since nearly dissolved — with Gucci serving another prison term after falling out with fellow label figurehead Waka Flocka Flame and leaving the once-great rap empire in shambles.

I first saw Chastity Belt two years ago, at The Josephine in Ballard. They played a short, semi-sloppy set, opening for Dude York. Both bands have their origins at Whitman College in Walla Walla, so the pairing seemed natural.

It’s funny how much can change in 24 months.
