    I was at Beyer of course! I don't miss him when he's in town. I'm not much of a reviewer however and haven't posted as a result :)

    I got there early, so I could get settled in and make sure I had a good spot that I would be prepared to defend as it got crowded, which it did shortly after midnite. I hadnt heard Ida live before and although I was looking forward to it, I have to say I was a little concerned when I saw her take the decks at 1am, fearing Beyer then wouldn't be on til 3 or so and since Im gettin up there in years, I didn't know if id be able to make it all the way til 5 to take it all in :) She started off a little shaky in my opinion but eventually settled right in and brought some nice dancey bassy beats.

    Lucky for me however, Beyer took over about an hour later and commenced to lay down the relentless pounding percussive awesomeness that makes me smile like a loon. I ended up staying much later than I normally do, and woulda closed the place down if Footwork wasn't so damned hot. That place gets super heated in the dead of winter, and on a night like Saturday, there was little relief to be had outside where it was unseasonably warm as well.

    Overall I had an amazing time and it was a total redemption for Beyer in my books since when I saw him this time last year, I was a little disappointed, but I will chalk it up to venue and crowd he was playing to then. FW was a total sausage fest as it seems to be for most techno jams, and although I was approached more often than I like as a result, I danced my ass off til my clothes were soaked through and loved every minute of it. From the looks and reactions of the crowd I think they all felt the very same.

    This; there seem to be fewer and fewer reviews of events that weren't events thrown by tribers. C'mon! That's what led me to this site in the first place!

    My Ju' said that Koze was very underattended. Maybe 80 people?

    everyone was in Detroit, no?

    Man we wanted to stay for Koze but that rain on Monday was brutal, and then when it stopped everything smelled like hot dirty ass.
    Good weekend otherwise, but Monday just didn't seem worth hanging around for.
    Feel bad for the performers who travelled and got bumped due to the weather....
