    either way, while it'll be a last minute decision on Friday, I'll likely be at Avalon this week, ... If nothing else, always good to hang with friends.. and I am interested in checking out Harvard Bass and Felix Cartal... I just find Gartner's sets uninspiring, to say the least...

    Probably, they were charging $35 for Etienne De Crecy after 10PM. I barely made it before 10 to grab the $10 entry.

    Edit: And it wasn't even close to being crowded until about 1AM, so a lot of people were forking over the $35 to get in.

    Last night's opening DJ was so obnoxiously douchetastic that we decided to skip out around 1am when Joris Voorn STILL hadn't taken the stage. There could be no redemption for the amount of douchery witnessed for the first two hours of an otherwise lovely Saturday night. Gui cancelling had a lot to do with our decision. Bummed. Probably not going to return to Avalon until Dirtybird night. Boooo.

    Something tells me you don't know what it means to actually deal with an event that's a clusterfuck....

    Ummmmm, what? I got in withing 2 minutes tonight. Got there at about 9:45, got into will call line which was maybe 5 people long and got in. Then made sure I was in the floor area and never left, cause at about 11 or so it was pretty much closed off. I imagine thats the complain Rag and Bone is gonna bust out. sorry, fire code, rules are rules.



    ANYWAY, tonight was ridiculous, the light set up for Wolfgang was really really good, some nice effects, photos coming soon. He threw down all of his tunes, plus a few cool mashups with Talking Heads and Beastie Boys for example. Felix was solid also.

    Seems like you had a good time. The pictures are awesome.

    Rag and Bone...a show like this with a crowd like what you got is typical. Worst ran event week after week in this country? CONTROL being packed is typical, if that's not the kind of crowd you like, it's probably not a place you should be going to see artists. Of course tho, they do cram a lot of people in on big nights but what promoter wouldn't?

    Last night was VERY fun.... got there nice and early, 9:30 or so... never left the floor, had 0 issues that way... let me guess it was the typical shit, not let people on the floor? big line ups outside?

    Wolfgang threw down REALLY hard. Playing Beethoven 5th mixed with Intergalactic made me lose my mind. Does he always play so much of his material? Or could this tour be considered like a LIVE set or something?

    Felix Cartal was good, lots of fun...not my favorite set from him, only played 4 of his own songs, but ended the night really strong with Montreal Dreams.

    Lesson learned: don't drink and board. I actually had a good time but was pissed at the moment because no one would let me outside to smoke haha. Wolfgang's set up was great.

    Well, considering that they had to have LESS people now at control, last night was ''tame'' per say. When Wolfgang was at Avalon last summer, they crammed in 2000 into the place, this time was maybe a little more than what they advertise than capacity, but I never felt too crowded around by people.

    It was definitely packed, but nowhere near the level it was before the fire department got on Avalon's ass. Great show from Wolfgang, although I think Felix Cartal stole it. Not many of his own songs, but still had people moving.

    that's actually a pretty cool stage setup. I didn't see it... since by the time he went on, I had left to go to king king and see Lazaro Casanova.

    Well the trend of more dj's actually doing a proper tour here is picking up some steam. So having a production is gonna be key. I am sure he will use it for a good year or so, just like Deadmau5 or Eric Prydz.
