Ghostland Observatory 12 December 10
Wow. Wow. I was expecting a mind numbing DJ set. Wow.
Considering 80 percent of those in attendance were sporting glow-stick accessories. Necklace, bracelet, earrings, glasses. One girl had lights under her skirt. The opener, who shall remain nameless, mainly because I was so bored I can't be bothered to remember his name, was a dull DJ.
Because of my lack of interest in electronic music, I've never witnessed a laser show. So I can't compare this to anything. But I think it's fair to say that their laser show is a force to be reckoned with. It was like watching TRON sometimes. And other times, you were just sure that if you jumped, just a smidge too high, you would be eradicated by the beams.
There is a vocalist, with shrill tones, reminding me of Ima Robot. He sometimes picks up the guitar. His cohort, wearing a large red, white, and blue cape stood behind a drum kit and was surrounded by a number of keyed boxes and synthesizers.
Very entertaining. Only improvements would be, a proper opener and a proper audience.
