The Show Must Go On and On and On

Doug E. Fresh leads a delighted Brooklyn crowd down a Frosted Flake–filled memory lane

Fully satisfied, the crowd begins its mass exodus even as Fresh and Rick break into "Children's Story," still the most incongruous mix of somber lyrics and exuberant presentation imaginable. (One cannot somberly beatbox.) Afterward, Fresh still spends 45 minutes or so onstage, actually, but it's essentially an after-party now—his DJ cycles through reggae hits (everyone, even those filing out, sings along to "Redemption Song"), Fresh brings up his son's hip-hop group, etc. As they pick their way through the shockingly massive crowd, grown men—at least 42, y'all—appear to be skipping, and a few jump up and swing from the goalposts as they pass, like bright-eyed little kids who know exactly what they'll watch, what they'll watch it on, and what they'll eat while they're watching when they get home. Good times.
