Crossing the threshold of the security, a rush of blood pulses through your veins, a sinking feeling deepens your gut. Into the venue you stream with the other heads in anticipation of that guy you wanted to see. That guy who's gonna twist some knobs, push some buttons, or the guy who's gonna turn the guitar up really really loud. There's that sinking feeling again. Was it something I ate? Why yes, yes it was. The chemicals are whats effecting me, but I came to hear the music, to feel the music.
Unfortunately mind-altering drug usage and Electronic and Dance music will always be tied together. This is a very touchy subject among the community of people who enjoy EDM music. The only reason I want to mention this is because for years I have heard people, even in the scene, perpetuate the idea of needing drugs to enjoy these particular styles of music. That is simply not true. You don't need drugs and you don't need robot-ears. I think I like this music because of Nintendo 16 bit tunes, and 90's Cartoon theme songs. Taking drugs before concerts or listening to music is a choice and it may enhance the sensory experience, but it does not have any bearing on if you're appreciating the music itself. I don't ever wanna hear from anybody young or old, "oh you need drugs to like that music." Um, f*ck you.
Buffalo loves October anxiously. We know whats coming so its time to load up, on everything. There will be no shortage of parties going on this month, what with everyone's favorite ghoulish and slutterly-amazing holiday approaching.
OHM ULTRA LOUNGE
948 main st. Buffalo, NY
The cannons burst-off when Frosty Tone announced who the secret headliner was playing with STENCHMAN at OHM tomorrow night. COTTI with Stenchman make it a double UK headliner! That's sorta like a double-rainbow only better. This was before double rainbow. Back when Cotti was making grime in Brixton. Back when Stenchman played Merlin's! One of the first "big-deal" shows that Frosty Tone did. This is a big deal too, so get yo asses over to Ohm tomorrow night for some OG dubstep and Bass music. Other performers include BIG BASHA w/ DEMI GOD, THE VERDICT, LAQUA, E-MISSION & TEMPERS ROUGE, NECKBRACE & FYAHFACE w/ SHOWGOSEE.
DUKE'S BOHEMIAN GROVE BAR
253 allen st. Buffalo, NY
Toronto Electro House DJ/Producer MIX CHOPIN makes his third appearance in Buffalo within the last year. Saturday night Duke's will be bumpin' again with an array of good dance tunes from the headliner along with local DJs DRAPES, BEARSKINRUG, MIOSI, and OWSKI. First time Mix Chopin was here, not many decided to check it out. Second time, he got a little better idea of how BLO can party it up with the atmosphere at Duke's. Hit the sauce then hit the dancefloor for some classic Saturday night fun.
Apologies for sounding preachy this week, but that phrase is pigeonholing. Much Love.
