Crystal Method has only been performing DJ sets lately it seems. They've played a couple gigs at a relatively small nightclub in Seattle lately so for whatever reason they aren't bringing in huge crowds or some shit. I don't get it.
Crystal Method is just doing a DJ set, and to be honest, I'd rather see Aoki than TCM spin records. If TCM was doing an actual set I would wet my pants.
On that lineup I'm actually quite excited to see Nero too, since I missed them last time they were through Calgary.
Bear in mind this is a one-day show and given the lineup I expect little more than a sequence of DJ acts with not a lot of stage presence. I'll gladly attend anyways since for me EDM is more about dancing and getting into the energy of the crowd than anything else. When you have a DJ on stage who's connected with the crowd and spinning whatever makes the crowd tick, it can be an incredible experience even without a light show.
Still, if they price this much more than $100 It'll be a tough sell, especially the mid-week shows.
Edit: Ignore my previous blathering about Datsik (deleted). I had things mixed up in my peanut-sized brain. He's well worth seeing here if I have the chance.
But there are so many seats in the middle. Fuck sitting, I want to dance. And I don't want those seats in my way. And the only other choices are pay a zillion bucks and be close or pay not as much and dance on the lawn. I guess there are other venues that would be worse though so I won't complain too much if it's at White River.
