Lights, Bass, and DayGlow: A Recap

If you have a ticket to tonight’s DayGlow show, you’re in for a real treat. At least if last night’s first stop in State College was any indication.

Through the four hour show, waves of pulsating energy cause you to lose your sense of time; the DJ’s transitions and the paint-drenched dance floor, highlighted by UV light, definitely kept the ravers, well, raving.

As I walked out onto the floor, I saw a sea of white shirts, neon trucker hats, and a heart-shredding bass speaker that sent sound waves rippling off the walls like the aftershock of an earthquake. DJ Nammo (@nammomusic) warmed up the early crowd who demonstrated a true love of house music by showing up on time. As the fashionably late pre-gamers filled the venue, so did the intensity of the rave. The smell of booze from the mouths of revelers passing me by in the heart of the dance floor was palpable, and the throbbing mass of fist pumpers was orbited by smaller bubbles of people enjoying a more psychedelic experience.

By the time David Solano (@djdavidsolano) came on, the audience had completely submerged themselves in the music. The constant rhythm of the music mirrored the thumping of a heart — a drug-like feeling even without a substance. It was right around this time that I sensed the crowd hitting another plateau, with whatever they were on now hitting them harder than before, just as the countdown to the paint party began. When the clock hit zero, DJ Chuckie (@DJCHUCKIE) took the stage and pleased the crowd with some dirty beats, funky bass, and a copious amount of neon paint.

I don’t want to spoil too much for those of you attending tonight, but get ready for some awesome house music. Both headlining DJs remixed artists like MGMT, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Gotye, and Linkin Park. Not only was the music a treat, but the light show and the theatrics on stage were visually captivating. There is no doubt that if you attend tonight’s show, you will have a great time and and one of the most refreshing (and colorful) showers ever afterwards.
