The Show Must Go On: Adventure Club Saves The Day
Parade of Lasers is a classic holiday rave that the city of Denver, Colorado proudly hosts every year. Incredible talent teams up with an outstanding lighting setup to create a musical and visual experience like no other.
This year, many attendees were incredibly disappointed upon learning that the previously announced headliner, dubstep king Flux Pavilion, had canceled due to an illness. However, another incredible act was quick to save the day. Canadian duo Adventure Club stepped up to the plate and brought Colorado’s Parade of Lasers a set like never before.
The show took place at the Fillmore Auditorium in the heart of Denver this past Saturday, December 16. Joining Adventure Club were several artists, including L.A.-based heavy-hitters Yultron and Protohype. These two set the stage beautifully and had the crowd hyped for a surprisingly bass-infused set.
Adventure Club is typically known for playing an extremely mixed-genre set. In fact, earlier this month they posted a video on their Facebook with the caption “we’ll put you in your feels AND make you headbang!” This statement could not be more accurate. Though a lot of Adventure Club‘s original music has an emotional, trance-y touch, they often play quite a bit of heavy music in their sets. This set was exceptionally bass-y, probably because they knew much of their audience was there initially expecting an epic dubstep throwdown from Flux Pavilion.
Knowing they had some specific shoes to fill, Adventure Club brought the filthiest dubstep and trap that anyone could have ever imagined! Their intense build-ups led to the most unexpected drops, full of seamlessly perfect transitions. In the first hour of their set, they played everything from Excision to Porter Robinson to Kendrick Lamar to Boombox Cartel. They didn’t shy away from switching up tracks just when the crowd least expected it, and it yielded the most magical results.
In the last half hour, the duo slowed it down to some of their classic tracks. Two of their most memorable were their hits “Gold” and “Crash 2.0”. This was the perfect ending to an incredible set!
It’s safe to say no one walked out of the Fillmore Auditorium disappointed this Saturday. We want to thank Adventure Club for their amazing performance, and to wish Flux Pavilion a speedy recovery!
