Infected Mushroom - Club Cinema, Pompano Beach - February 2
They have a real sense of musicality, which took us on a solid journey with highs and lows, peaks and valleys. There were slow, reflective moments, hopeful upward movements, and nasty, hard drops. Visually, we tripped through forests, oceans, underground caverns, outer space, the inner workings of the mind, and plain abstract colors and patterns. All of this 3-D mapped with incredible realness and precision.
By 1:44 a.m., they took their leave, but returned in a few minutes for a special encore, the most impressive visuals of the night. Honestly, it was nothing short of a mushroom trip. The same freaky patterns and colors, mixed with the kind of shit you see when your television screen is broken. It was definitely in the top three of most incredible visuals we've ever witnessed.
Personal Bias: I can only imagine what it would have been like to witness that on drugs. I'm surprised people could even walk after that.
The Crowd: Infected Mushroom fans of all ages. We talked to some people who were 40, and some people who couldn't have been much older than 16.
Fun Fact: The same company that produced Amon Tobin's incredible ISAM tour, V Squared Labs, is the same masterminds behind Infected Mushrooms amazing Fungusamongus set-up.
