Friday the 13th @ The Crosby w/Nosaj Thing & Gaslamp Killer

Posted in From the Front Lines (Show Reviews) with tags , , , , , , , on February 14, 2009 by worldromper

So I finally dragged my ass over to the Crosby in the freakin’ OC last night, and am sooooooo glad I did!

Ever since I moved to LA several friends have been telling me to make the trek to the Crosby and when I started checking out the lineups there I realized why: Nobody, Lorn, Gaslamp Killer, Nosaj Thing– and that’s just this week. The Crosby is apparently a veritable palace of electronic goodness and I, a mere commoner of dance and a pilgrim who wants to pay my respects with my feet.

It was Friday the 13th and the Obey Radio party; the show was well worth the 45 minute drive over with the sweet ass booming system in the Stash Box. On the lineup: Nosaj Thing and Gaslamp Killer. No cover. Sweet!

When I arrived Swass was finishing up and holy god that place got PACKED in a second when the Mother Fucking Gaslamp Killer went on, but it was really strange- no one was dancing, just me and this one guy. All the other people were just bobbing heads. It was really weird and really white. I thought this might change through the course of the night but nope, apparently no one dances in the OC.

Well I dance wherever I go, and I was glad that at least other person came out to get down. Seriously people how can you not dance with the filthy fucking music they were throwing last night? And with the Gaslamp Killer getting all excited and slinging his hair all over the place and acting like a total freak and shit?

I was perplexed but still stoked to see Nosaj Thing; the last time I heard him was in Seattle several months ago at the infamous Monkey Loft at some point approaching dawn. It was dopeness then, and it was dopeness last night! 

Wow! I think all these guys are drinking from some future stream bubbling up in the LA area, or maybe there really is a portal somewhere which has cracked open due to a critical mass of musical masterminds and an insane amount of sunshine.

Nosaj Thing’s music is ripe with murk and soaked in a hip hop groove which slides through your chest at the same time it conducts random experiments on your brain circuitry. After-effects of such music most often include a stupid smile and sweaty hair. The only cure? More.

Keep doing it, guys. Dance floors WILL catch up. These people’s brains can barely handle your music, much less their bodies. Everyone will catch up and we will be WAY better dancers when we see you on the other side!

Thank you, from the dance floor.

Going Down This Week Los Angeles

Posted in Note to Readers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2009 by worldromper

Monday: Droog, NOT freeeeeee! Flying Lotus at the Standard, and the motherfucking GasLamp Killer  somewhere else in Hollywood.

Tuesday: Nobody, free show for real!

Wednesday: LOW END THEORY of course! Are you in LA? FUCKING GO. This week is Customer Service, Boogie Blind, Lorn and Flynn Adam AND the residents are SO fucking dope that you may just want to move in and live there with them, right on the dance floor: Daddy Kev, Nobody, THE MOTHERFUCKING GASLAMP KILLER, D-Styles and MC Nocando who I love. I am there!

Friday: Gaslamp Killer and Nosaj Thing are playing at The Crosby. My friend Dave says I can get a free drink if I say his name at the bar. Straight!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

Saturday, Valentine’s Day: Lucent L’Amour promises madness taking over the streets of downtown Los Angeles with art and music performances including Z TRIP , Adam Freeland and tons of live visual arts of all sorts including killer shit from Andrew Jones. Last year Andrew threw an art party in Seattle at the top of the Space Needle with the Glitch Mob, a party that since has attained a near-mythical status and is now practically unmentionable in that city. There are people who don’t believe it ever really happened and others who will bitchslap you if you even mention it in conversation. It was FUCKING LEGEND!

So come to the sweet street festival, check out Android’s dope art, get your face painted, eat a giant head of cotton candy, fall in love at first sight, or ditch that epic loser you’re with and find somebody new.

Art show & happy hour at 7PM, expect to rage it until 4AM. See you on the dance floor.
