It Happened This Weekend: National Edition
We went. We saw. We danced, and we resurfaced on Sunday morning with our ears still ringing.
Chicago, IL: Skrillex @ The Congress
Nadastrom, 12th Planet and Two Fresh warmed up the Midwestern crowd before dubstep's boy wonder went next level on the power of his ridiculously impressive Skrillex Cell visual show. Chicago's Congress Theatre might never be the same.
Los Angeles, CA: Big Bass All Stars @ the King King
Hollywood got hyphy on Friday night with an 11-11-11 party featuring Hyena, PlumbLyne, GoldRush, Griz, Nico Luminous and a one minute 11-11-11 ceremony at, of course, 11:11pm. The party at the King King then raged until 4am. And you thought L.A. shut down at 2am!
Boulder, CO: Digital Beat Down @ the Dark Horse
Electronic duo Digital Beat Down returned to the venue that gave them their start at this Saturday night party at Boulder's ultra-intimate Dark Horse Bar. There are unsubstantiated reports of girls dancing on the pool tables.
Tallahassee, FL: Diplo and Steve Angello @ the Rivalry Music Festival
Electro kingpins Diplo and Steve Angello went head to head (and beat to beat) at Tallahassee's college football themed Rivalry Music Festival. DJ/producer Emir Duru hosted the fête, which, we imagine was part birthday party for Diplo, who turned 33 on Thursday. Thousands of fans (including Dillon Francis, Tommy Lee and innumerable attractive females) wished him happy a b-day via Twitter.
Arcata, CA: Tipper @ The Arcata Theatre
Bass-fueled glitch master and Burner crowd favorite Tipper played the historic (and tiny) Arcata Theatre in northern California. Catch him again in NorCal this New Year's Eve weekend at Lake Tahoe's Snow Globe Music Festival .
Individual recaps of elektro's insane weekend event coverage in New York City (seriously, we saw Borgore at Roseland, M Machine and MiMOSA at Webster Hall, Carl Kennedy, Dirty South and Ryan and Sunnery at Pacha, Madonna (!) with Martin Solveig at Roseland, Jimmy Carris at LAVO NY, the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival, and haven't really slept at all), can be found right here at ElektroDaily.com!
