Also, Dayglow recently announced more dates for 2012. Seattle is not a stop, but Spokane Washington is on November 30th! The lack of a Seattle stop is interesting as the Seattle May 2012 Dayglow was reportedly the largest in the history of Dayglow with 10,000 in attendance. No word as to who the headliner will be for the Spokane show, I will add this information to the comments section below once it is released. Find more information about the 2012 tour here and RSVP on Facebook for the Spokane event here.
Check out StopBreatheBump’s review and recap of Resolution 2012, great photos and a wonderful recap of the event. Interesting to see that little Seattle had the most hyped New Years Eve event on Facebook…
Personally, I agree with almost every opinion in the StopBreatheBump review. I had a blast at Resolution and thought that the sound was top-notch, the size of the crowd was perfect (much more enjoyable than certain other oversold edm events), and the variety of different genres at the event meshed well in a way that was much better than I expected. I really enjoyed the stage set-up along with the disco ball drop and angel/cat dancers (??? whatever they were supposed to be!) – absolutely wonderful visual stage set-up.
I was not impressed by CongoRock, I found the set to be very repetitious and not very original sounding. However, I really am not that familiar with CongoRock to begin with, so my judgment is truly a first impression. Nero was AMAZING, but still not as good as at Identity – in my opinion. I felt that Nero’s DJ set at Resolution was most definitely a DJ set, while at Identity I felt like we truly were at a Nero show. I saw vocalist Alana for seriously about 5 seconds, I didn’t even notice she was singing until she was saying goodbye! Oops… I might have been a bit more under the influence than I thought!
Tritonal was amazing as usual - disclaimer, total Tritonal nerd here – I ♥ Tritonal, Tritonians unite! This is the third time I’ve been lucky enough to experience Tritonal live and they didn’t disappoint. I enjoyed the new mash-ups and remixes they played, however I feel that Tritonal really needs to take the next step in their evolution as performers. While Chad and Dave are absolutely amazing producers, I feel that their live show recipe has grown slightly stale for me. I’m excited to see what they will bring to the table in 2012, and crossing my fingers that they will return to EDC this year!
Check out the full photo gallery on the USC Events website photo gallery page. Stay tuned for a follow-up post once Tritonal releases the video for “Can’t Keep It In” – per the Tritonal facebook page, they will be using footage from Resolution2012, along with other events in 2011, in the official music video!
Hi everyone, I’m back online after an extended holiday break full of skiing, partying, and some great EDM shows. I was lucky enough to enjoy some fresh powder at Whistler and Apental over the break, and attend quite a few great EDM shows including Resolution 2012, Winter Kandyland 2011, Flammable sundays, and a few others. I’ll be posting about my favorite 2011 shows soon, along with detailed event reviews for some winter 2011 local events I was lucky enough to experience.
First off, thought I would share an (ahem) interesting video from Winter Kandyland 2011, which was held at Trinity Nightclub Seattle on December 21st, 2011. I had a great time at the event, even though the artificial snow kept going up my nose and landing in my drink. I pity the DJs who were playing in the blue room with the snow as even though it was very beautiful it was a bit hard to party under! I had a great time dancing to lots of club bangers, bass, and dubstep, and really enjoyed the kandy girls dancing in the sexy santa outfits. My one complaint about the event was the sound at Trinity is extremely loud, it was great quality, but seriously – it’s not that large of a club, do you really need to make everyone deaf! My ears are always ringing for at least a day every time I make it to Trinity.
Check out the full photo gallery from JivePhotography here. Watch the very sexy video below - although I’m fairly certain that the majority of the sexy ladies in the video were dancers hired by the promoters, it’s still a fun video to watch – enjoy!!!
Stay tuned for more posts soon, and who’s getting excited for Avicii, I am!!!!!!!!
I had a great time experiencing Darude and Ronski Speed at Winterland 2011 by StarDust Productions last Saturday night at the Last Supper Club in Seattle. As soon as I walked in the door I could tell that it was going to be a high energy show. The snowflake decorations were beautiful, and the lasers accentuated the sparkly winter decor for the event. The crowd was very energetic with a great balance of dancers and drinkers having a good time. The amount of people was perfect, it was pleasantly packed with lots of dancing trance fans, but with plenty of room to move around, get up close to the performers, and also grab a drink without a long wait.
Ronski Speed opened with some good, solid trance, and definitely got me into the trance mood by dropping Above & Beyond and Cosmic Gate among his originals. Next up was Darude, who really impressed me. Darude played a good 1-1/2 hour long set, building up the beats and whipping the crowd into a trance frenzy seamlessly, then dropped some Arty before closing the night with his legendary hit Sandstorm – to which he refreshingly added some new tempos and beats.
My only complaint was that the sound quality was not the best, especially at the back of the room. When I went up to the front the sound was improved, but I really would have enjoyed some more power for the hard trance beats. Overall, a great night with amazing music, a wonderful high energy crowd, and an amazing evening.
