Aoki In The House

Two days after Steve Aoki’s concert at Starlight, I’ve finally recovered. I have full hearing in both ears again, and am mentally functional at work. The concert was epic, to say the least… Although I wish I could say the same about the crowd. There were a surprising number bleach blonde girls in stilettos and short skirts moshing with their hollister wearing boyfriends… Then again, the venue was close to Wilfred Laurier, and I doubt Waterloo is known for their hipster scene.

Before the show started, I downed a couple of watered down drinks, and managed to grab a limited edition LEGENDARY BOYS NOIZE SKULL TEE

I have Aoki’s album, and have heard a lot of his work on air, but seeing him live was out of this world. After working my way onto the sound stage, slipping past the velvet rope and bouncers, I saw the magic from Aoki’s perspective. The crowds, the endless bottles of grey goose, the energy. I don’t think DJs usually chug half a bottle of vodka before diving into the crowd. I found a clip from Celebrities Nightclub, Vancouver.

His next Toronto stop is April 9, 2009 along with MSTRKRFT, Crookers, and The Bloody Beetroots at The Guvernment. Definitely worth seeing again.

Heads up, Daft Punk in 2010.
