SBTRKT & Disclosure: Official Lollapalooza Afterparty at The Mid.
These days most clubs won’t let you congregate outside until the doors open. This makes arriving early for tickets at the door challenging. After driving past the Mid a few times, dinner, and a few drinks, we only had to wait an hour and a half to purchase tickets for this exclusive afterparty. Unfortunately, we missed all of DJ Sushi, but caught a fun, up-and-down set from DJ Zibo.
The masses arrived from Lolla, complete with an obnoxious Deadmau5 helmet wearing gentleman, and they would not be disappointed. The Disclosure brothers Guy and Howard began their DJ set with their track “When A Fire Starts to Burn.” Throughout their very cool (and very UK) set they also included “Latch,” “F For You,” and “White Noise.”
Poor SBTRKT. How do you follow two handsome British boys? By playing a dance-your-socks-off set that blew my expectations out of the water. Beginning with Koreless and finding time to fit in Mount Kimbie, Moderat, and some Boards of Canada, SBTRKT annihilated the capacity crowd. Annihilated. Bow to your new master, club-kids. SBTRKT is your new lord.
