Vitalic, aka French electronic musician Pascal Arbez, is currently on tour across the US - he did California last weekend...
...Soon he took the stage and the crowd really got into it. My concert companion made it her mission to get us to the front. We eventually were no more than a handshake away from Vitalic. The crowd, energy, and sweat were drenching and surrounding me....and gets to Chicago tonight (2/23). He'll be playing NYC's Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall on Friday, February 26th. Tickets are on sale.
Concertgoers were continuously jumping up on the stage, then shooed away by security every few minutes. This pretty much happened for the duration of the show. Vitalic never seemed bothered, only energized by it. Driven by the music, people got on top of the speakers. It was awesome.
I danced myself sober. That is the way to gauge the worth of a show. If you sweat and move and dance so much that the alcohol has no choice but to be exiled from your pores, then your show was awesome.... [Spinning Platters]
