Better than: Sitting in a plastic rocket and pretending to go to the moon.
While a typical midweek party at Mezzanine might see the opening DJs playing an indulgent set to a small group of friends and a room full of bored bartenders, it was a different story last night when Digitalism made the last stop on its U.S. tour.
Local DJ Eli Glad began warming up the stage around 9 p.m., playing tracks from Cassius and The Weeknd, much to the delight of the already ample crowd gyrating on the floor. Despite an atmosphere of snowflakes and Christmas lights in the background, the thumping house music served to remind concertgoers that this wasn't some horrific company Christmas party, but rather a sold-out Mezzanine show with some excellent indie-tronica Germans.
