Better Than: Being stuck at home with your parents, stuffing your face with your fourth round of Thanksgiving left overs, you little piggy.
Gobble gobble turned into wobble wobble real fast this weekend when mohawk'd mayhem-machine Rusko came to town.
He may be English and therefore find our holiday completely irrelevant, but the crowds at Club Cinema were more than thankful for the cornucopia of bass.
The neon-masses turned up in droves to dance away the sorrows of a recently cancelled Boys Noize show and postponed UR1 Festival. When we arrived at about 11 p.m., the bottom floor of the venue was already packed tight with reveling ravers, glowing in the dark, and well on their way to some wide-eyed, chemically fueled pandemonium.
Local trap-star Khaos was ruling the stage, going in hard on some dark and bassy bangers topped with plenty of tinny snare accents. The ruckus starter was jumping up and down, dropping massive beats from Miami-local JWLS to remixes of radio-friendly rap and trappy anthems like "2012" and "Spend It." The energy was brimming over into insanity as he finished off with Kickshifta's "Gangsta Shit," ready to hand it off to moombahton-originators Nadastrom.
Nada, with his wild hair and penchant for grabbing the mic, is the clear hypeman of the pair. But Nordstrom was also getting caught up in the energy, jumping around and thunder-clapping to the beat. They took turns rocking the tables, tag-teaming through their hour-long set of moombah classics. You almost always know what you're in for with a Nadastrom set, but it's the best kind of predictability, honestly.
