Flux coming later!
Flux Pavilion and Loudpvck were stranded by flooding in Dallas and could not make the Albuquerque show on Friday night. Diskord and Nghtmre played extra-long sets, though, and we all get to go back and see Flux and Loudpvck later in the season. Possibly in December when their tour is wrapping up. There’s even a chance that show will feature different opening acts so, in a way, we got two shows for the price of one!
Not to discount the evening, though, as we totally enjoyed Nghtmre’s show! There seemed to be a few glitches with the sound system; but it kinda looked like multiple entities were working together to insure we had a great bass music experience. It’s not easy to stitch multiple systems together without any issues.
Nghtmre is out on the road for his very first tour, and he’s a solid contender in the trap scene. It’s early in the tour, too, so the newness hasn’t yet worn off. He gave an outstanding and energetic performance!
As always, the crew at the El Rey could not have been better! Their ability to manage large crowds with lots of underage attendees, and to do it with such grace and courtesy, is the mark of excellent management and teamwork! It’s wonderful to walk out of a show at two in the morning and notice that everyone around us looks safe to drive home. Thank you, El Rey Theater!
We’ll be back…
