What So Not Plays Whole Set Concussed at Ubbi Dubbi Fest

what so notChris Emerson, the man behind the Australian act What So Not, walloped his head climbing on stage at his performance for Ubbi Dubbi Fest and gave himself a concussion. He and his team determined fairly quickly that it was a concussion, but he soldiered on and played his set regardless. This is certainly not a medically recommended solution to a concussion, and Emerson stated on Instagram that he felt like the set may have been weird but hopes everyone still enjoyed.

“It was a bazaar (sic) experience. Despite jumping around & smiling through it, I almost sat down & just gave up a couple times. .
Took a minute to sit & chill & ice my head once I was done. Was still a little confused for a few hours but eventually cleared up Sorry to anyone at @ubbidubbifest if the show was a little off? I think it was alright, but can’t remember it too well ha..”

Emrson reports that he is better now on the What So Not Instagram page, and the tour continues. Get tickets and catch him abroad in North America here.

Yesterday was one of the harder sets of my life. . I smacked my head on a low hanging LED wall climbing on stage. It immediately put me to the floor, but I didn’t realize anything was that serious until moments later I couldn’t figure out how to select what to play. . We worked out pretty quick I’d concussed myself, but decided id deal with it after the set. . It was a bazaar experience. Despite jumping around & smiling through it, I almost sat down & just gave up a couple times. . Took a minute to sit & chill & ice my head once I was done. Was still a little confused for a few hours but eventually cleared up. . Sorry to anyone at @ubbidubbifest if the show was a little off? I think it was alright, but can’t remember it too well ha.. . All is good & well today. Still an amazing weekend of shows. See u all soon 💙 . @ubbidubbifest @rukes @ohdagyo
