i wasn't planning on going, it was neat to see Solvent do a live PA - didn't like the track-by-track play... it felt chopped up. he was good... i wasn't über-impressed. wasn't über-impressed with the crowd of "chin strokers" -- a new term Dave is oh-so excited about. it's like people went just to stand around and look pissed.
we left and then went to another party, got bored there and came back to Footwork - MISSED MARIO J!! by then everyone had gone (it wasn't even 3!!) and by 3:15 there were 3 people left and they killed the tunes.
I AM SO MAD - i slept ALL day and now I won't be able to get to sleep later. SO mad. FUCK! i missed a gorgeous day too!!! BOOOOOOO!
I've seen him live a few times before. Oddly enough I'd say that this was the least chin-strokey gig yet. 5+ years ago nobody danced -- it was all IDM-like. HARD chin-stroking. Now there's dancers, and that's good ... but you just can't shake those chin-stroking fuckers!
Also, it's worth noting that what was probably the largest group of chin-strokers (which included me) were all friends of his. What can you do. And in our defense, at least one of our number (me) was givin'r on the dancefloor later on. Not because I liked the music that the DJs were playing more than the live set; just because I found it more danceable.
