Recap: Afterfest LA
Last Friday night, Afterfest made its way to Los Angeles, at the Fonda Theater, which was so much fun. The event was in association with FYF, and was a perfect way to start off a full weekend of music. We were treated to groovy DJ sets by Making Time DJs Dave P. and Sammy Slice, plus GODDOLLARS. In between all of those rad DJ sets were performances by our special surprise guest Delorean, and Glass Candy who put on one of the best live shows I've ever seen! —Maddie
GODDOLLARS was first up, pumping the tunes while the giant crowd was filing in.
The venue was transformed into a total disco!
Next up were Delorean, who brought their incredible electronic infused rock to LA all the way from Spain. Delorean mainly performed tracks off of 2010's Subiza, which the crowd was super excited about, plus new songs from Apar, coming out next month! They also performed at FYF the next day.
After Delorean, Making Time DJs Dave P. and Sammy Slice filled the time before Glass Candy played quite nicely, with some of the best mixes around. My favorite being their mix of David Bowie's "Golden Years."
Magical DJ hands hard at work.
Next up were the headliners, Glass Candy! The electronic duo, consisting of Ida No and Johnny Jewel, starting their set off nicely by releasing giant balloons into the crowd. The crowd could feel Ida No's energy immediately, it was so cool. Glass Candy played plenty of their synthpop hits, like "Warm In The Winter."
They went on to play for about an hour, and did an encore, where Ida crowd surfed and seriously got close with the fans. She's such a cool lady! Plus, they had pretty much the coolest light show ever. Check out those geometric graphics. I was in love.
After Glass Candy finished up, Dave P. and Sammy Slice DJed until the night was over, and brought this giant dance party to a close. Thank you to everyone who attended, and made the LA event totally rad! Until next time, Afterfest!
