A good friend of mine was approached to play the Heineken Dome. He quickly had the offer pulled by Heineken when they learned he was under the age of 25. I asked him for the scoop on what happened and this is what I was told.
Team Supreme was asked to curate the Heineken Dome lineup and Team Supreme will have a bulk of the DJ's playing the Heineken House. LA local beat scene guys who do a monthly at the Echoplex and bring out big names. I don't know where this mashup bullshit is coming from but I don't see that happening from them. Great Dane is already confirmed. Expect Penthouse Penthouse, Colta, King Henry, Kenny Segal, and Elos to be there as well. Screen Shot 2014-04-06 at 7.12.34 PM.jpg

First of all, the Brainfeeder peeps (expecting lots of surprises) are awesome. Nosaj Thing...awesome. Flight Facilities, pretty cool, seeing as I'm gunna miss their actual set-time.
But Hundred Waters?! Everyone needs to check them out. If you don't know them, they're an amazingly talented little dream pop/electronic band that toured with Braids last year. Saw them at the Bootleg Theater in LA with maaaaaaybe about 20 other people in the room, max. They blew me away. I feel like quite a few of the people on this board would like them.
The Heine House was a decent pop-in between sets. Less crowded than the Heineken Dome but also a little less well air conditioned. The music with live performers was decent for whomever the two randos I saw there were

It was kind of.... bright. I never made it back after dark, but I wondered whether they'd be able to do projections onto the ceiling in there (which were always great in the dome).
It's big inside, too. Naturally there's a VIP-only upper-level so all of Arcade Fire's favorite people can quite literally look down on everyone else. For me it loses the magic the HDome always had where you felt like you were partying on the moon, in a life-support pod, passing through airlocks on your space-base, and everyone in the room bouncing around in unison like it's one-fifth gravity. I will give myself another chance for the House to pull me in next weekend... always a good bet Donald Glaude will show up sooner or later.
Oh, and they had "designer donuts", if that's the kind of thing that piques your pinterest.
