was all in at the Fillmore
last night. We caught their House Party with A-Trak
at Rhinoceropolis last week, but the place was such a sauna, all we could do was stand outside and try to catch the tunes from a distance. The Fillmore was a whole different story though: with a curtain hanging behind the sound booth to cut off half the theater, the normally cavernous Fillmore felt much smaller and intimate on Thursday night. Floss hit the decks not a minute past their advertised set time and opened with an entrancing remix of ‘Lana’s Theme
‘. They set the stage for a hip-hop influenced set right from the get-go, mixing into Juicy J’s
’Bands A Make Her Dance’ from Lana’s. The duo continued into a roller coaster of trap bangers mixed with hip hop lyrics, sampling Baauer’s
’What’s Your Fantasy’, and both ‘Clique’ and ‘Mercy’ from the Cruel Summer
album. ‘Rollup’ went hard as always, ‘Total Recall’ was insanely hyphy, and obviously the biggest crowd pleaser of the night was their bass-heavy Original Don remix
. With Sub.Mission’s
generous addition of 12 extra subs… the place was shaking. You know it’s a good show when you can’t take a bathroom break without missing a song, and you could tell that these guys were having an absolute blast playing for everyone!
The famed Caspa took the stage last, and as much as I loved raging to his sets a few years ago, his product has strayed from what I think originally made him great. His latest releases have been relatively unimpressive and it was evident in his set – he’s drifting more towards a mainstream, almost Skrillex-y sound. While we did jam with him for a bit, we called it a night early and took the party back home.
Moral of the Story: If you haven’t seen Flosstradamus live yet – they are a must-see show.
