DARKSIDE – Heart
10 minutes of ambient intro.
This massive mirror hung overhead; it was essentially a portal to another dimension.
Awe-inspiring lights flooded the stage. Sometimes calm, blue, peaceful. Other times bright, red, intense. At one point the entire platform was drowning in a sea of flames. Thankfully our protagonists, unscathed.
Then there were sounds, lots of them…
The amount of instruments & electronics was stupefying.
Dave Herrington jammed on the guitar, bass, organ, piano, and clarinet. All while Nicolas Jaar wrestled with a Wurlitzer and another goofy contraption called the Mellotron. I dunno what they do, but they sounded really cool.
The set progression was flawless, the crowd was into it, and the place was packed. Everyone I interacted with was super genuine & nice. Props to The Do LaB for throwing a quality show.
