    yeah, usually the closer is the last billed. Opener is second to last. So you can generally figure out set order that way. Unless there's a situation where the same act is opening and closing. But I am pretty sure Matty is closing that one out.

    SebastiAn is very fucking french.

    That's the most accurate way I can describe his set.

    I didn't get a great look at what he had in his podium, the only thing I really saw was a DJM-800. I think he was primarily just adding effects on to a pre-recorded mix. It is possible I am wrong. Otherwise a lot of posing. Going for a whole political satire thing... Sebastian For President and all that.

    Destructo started off with some good tunes, but devolved into the generic soul-less grating electro that is popular these days. Also, he served as a reminder as to why mics & djs are a bad combination.

    Sharooz was good. I forgot that he had come to Avalon since I moved here. I generally enjoy him.

    And save the opening and closing sets, that's last night in a whiskey-filled nutshell.

    Appears that presale for Crookers has sold out... Lord it's going to be a crowded Friday night.

    Would someone be so kind to explain how one RSVP's for control? I'm tired of having to show up before 11 to get in when buying presale. I know you have to be 21+ but thats about all I know.

    So... spoilers if you're ever going to see this set?

    And there you have it!

    I felt like I was at a Nazi rally or something, during SebastiAn's set. The entire time he was raising his fists or saluting... On the screens there was the French flag & colors, his face, military footage, riot footage, etc. The screens would say things like "VOTE SEBASTIAN" and "SEBASTIAN = PRESIDENT," there were like rally banners... you get the picture.

    He really only played his hardest tracks (though a mix of everything he's put out, as far back as 2005 or so) and he beefed them up quite a bit. No Threnody. Only one official remix, his Robot Rock remix. He opened with his own remixed version of the French national anthem. There you go.

    Azari & III (live) & Matthew Dear - October 8th. Super excited about this one. There will be a third name on this night which should just add to the brilliance.

    Really excited for that whole weekend. Obviously the Fred Falke night has me pumped. Then I'm seeing Erasure at the Palladium on the 8th, and straight from there to Avalon for Azari & III/Matthew Dear!
    Any more info on the show? Juan Maclean rumours in?

    Short answer: I don't know

    Long answer: Drum and Bass was never really my thing. Although I am not actively offended by it like I am by "brostep". My main draw for this night was MJ Cole, who is no longer on the bill. On the flip side, Avalon is usually a pretty cheap night out for me... and the only other thing I'm contemplating doing (Little Boots at Skybar) I'd be going to alone (the main friend who'd be interested, coincidentally, will be working at Avalon). So odds are likely that I'll be at this... it'll just be more of a game time decision.

    I know enough about why it was cancelled to know that this wouldn't be happening.

    What's preventing you? Super excited for this one... Set times for anyone who wants/needs them:

    930-1100: Social Cues
    1100-1200: Anoraak (live)
    1200-130: Lifelike
    130-300: Fred Falke
    300-Close: Social Cues

    I don't remember much about the one time I saw Yolanda Be Cool, but I recall not being actively offended by their set. So while I generally could do without them, I feel confident that they will not get in the way of what will certainly be an amazing night otherwise!

    I should also point out that those set times are likely to be VERY fluid due to the Little Dragon show scheduled earlier. (I honestly will be surprised if Alex and I start playing earlier than 10:30)

    I'm a poor college student who lives an hour away from Hollywood. Any way of getting on a guestlist?

    I keep watching videos of Falke playing live... jamming out on a bass during his set... I am unreasonably excited about Friday at this point!

    Apparently anyone who is attending Little Dragon can stay for Control. Guess they arent expecting too many people to go as it is.

    that should be a fun night for you Spiggums with 2 sets. I made the biggest rookie move of my concert/club going life couple weeks back by wearing shorts for evol intent/high rankin. Very cool for Little Dragon attendees tomorrow though

    It would be better if there were no little dragon show... as it is, we probably won't realistically start till 10:30 for our first set, so will only play for 30-45 minutes.... and the last set will probably end up starting a bit later as well... But I know they're doing the best they can given the circumstances. And we will be happy to roll with the punches.

    The whole reason Little Dragon attendees are going to be able to stay is to get the main room opened for Control earlier... They'll have us start from the balcony while they cear out Little Dragon's equipment, load in Anoraak's equipment, and build the DJ booth for the rest of the night.

    I've been DJ'ing for over 15 years at this point (which is kind of scary in and of itself) and I have to say that I have never had as weird a night from a technical perspective as I did tonight.

    Nothing like having 3/4 of your mixes fucked up because someone elsewhere just decided that they were going to cut your monitors while you were in the middle of the mix.

    That said. Fun night. Fred Falke killed it. And he played both his remix of Dancing on My Own AND (and more importantly) his remix of Golden Cage. Super nice guy too. Really hope that he comes back soon.
