    Default Somebody Help Me Convince My Friends They Needs To See Underworld

    Hello all - I am in need of some assistance that I believe only this board can provide.

    My good friend Mejia, who posts on here as TheLastMejia, has decided that he will not go to Day 2 of the Ultra Music Festival because he doesn't care for Underworld and intends to sell his ticket.

    I have myself never seen Underworld but have been thoroughly convinced of their live greatness by this very board. I have seen the Daft Punk comparison go Underworld’s way many a time and Mejia and I have practically started a religion around Daft Punk’s set.

    So my point is this, he claims he doesn’t want to go because he doesn’t really know their music or likes what he’s heard of it online. I want to be able to convince him and his wife that this won’t matter and Underworld will melt their brains.

    Can anyone help me convince them of the impending awesomeness they will miss for the price of a bag of weed?

    i didn't know who Underworld was when I saw them at Field Day in 2003. It was rainy at giants stadium and the thousands of people on the field watching them went from "people, don't dance no more, they stand there just like this" to dancin like madmen. It was pretty much the most awesome unexpected thing i've been a part of at a show.

    Don't miss the impending awesomeness! Don't you want your brain to melt? I mean, it's the price of a bag of weed to melt your brain!

    Go, go, go Mejia - you will hate yourself after, if you don't go.

    Refer him to the Underworld thread, there's lots of footage and commentary.

    Has he heard the Rez/Cowgirl mix? That is plenty to make him wanna go.

    If he does not want to see Underworld he does not deserve to go to this fest anyway.

    does he even want to see boys noize?? I bet the songs he randomly selected online were not even their best songs. Dark Long Train, great song and one of my most memerable moments in a film (train spotting) includes that song

    If this doesn't make your friend want to go then they have no reason to be invited anyways. You will lose your soul to this.
