Your weekend forecast: mostly ravey with scattered Juggalos
Just got back from TV Lounge, great way to kickoff the weekend. The patio at TV is awesome!
Ready to hit the shuttle
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
1/2 slice lemon
Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.
This Underground Stage feed has me motivated to make this happen for next year. Rrose up now. http://www.be-at.tv/brands/hart-plaz...nd-stage/rrose
Jesus Rrose was a mind trip. What a trip for those to see that then walk outside and it still being light out. Good luck talking to someone coherently.
Did anyone else come across the little card/flyer for Need I Say more? Ridiculous!
Was it awesome? I'm sure everyone is severely malnourished from the fried chicken over-exertion and lack of sleep. And I hope everyone is still alive. I wish I could have gone. It's my first year missing it in 3 years
Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls
I needed the sleep. I barely woke up that morning and did the Old Miami thing half in the bag Weekend At Bernie's style.
Good weekend overall. I'll most likely return next year.
Detroit.... Oh Detroit, what is there to say that could capture the greatness that is your little dumpster of a town? You get a bad rap, but the beauty that comes from your music and your people was on full display this weekend. Great start to the (hopefully coming soon) summer. Good running into some of you.
Please post links to any sets if you find them. Thanks!
It's funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns.
Just got back from Detroit a few hours ago, had a fucking blast at DEMF. It is without a doubt the best electronic music festival in the US, bar none.
Im a born again christian raver.
"How long will this last, this delicious feeling of being alive, of having penetrated the veil which hides beauty and the wonders of celestial vistas? It doesn't matter, as there can be nothing but gratitude for even a glimpse of what exists for those who can become open to it."
Be-at TV was the only thing that got me through missing this year. It has a bunch of recorded sets from main stage Saturday, made in Detroit stage Sunday and the bunker Monday. Great quality.
Congratulations to the winner of the guedita and SoulDischarge Official JPhlip Booty Bass contest: Ellen Allien's set.
DEMF remains incomparable to any other festival I've been to.
Allien was undoubtedly the party set of the weekend. Completely didn't expect that and so glad I saw some of it. Monday was probably my favorite day overall, musicwise. It's so easy to not pace yourself and miss it, and doubly so with the weather on Monday this year, but it's always a mistake. I've seen the best sets of my entire life on Memorial Day in Detroit.
This is the difference between DEMF and every other festival in the US. Other fests would have him at like 3pm to a crowd of like 50, while they put him as a subheadliner and he threw down the best big room DJ set I've seen in my life. He could totally handle a headlining Sahara spot, but it'd never fucking happen.
I'm starting to have teeny regrets about not going into the fest on Monday, but I'm really happy with what I saw over the weekend. I've been sitting here for an hour trying to make a top 3 or top 5 list for the weekend, and it's incredibly tough since most of what I saw was so, so good... to steal the words of a friend, after Sunday night with Planetary Assault Systems into Squarepusher, I feel like I have been reprogrammed....
Yeah. Pretty much. It's funny, because mid-day Saturday I was starting to think maybe this was a really mild DEMF and maybe I was getting over this shit because while I enjoyed everything I heard and was having a great time, I just wasn't being blown away. Now of course it's in the running for best weekend of my life.
