Skrillex Pool Party: Who Doesn’t Like To Get Wet?
Skrillex made his debut at The Talking Stick Resort’s Release Pool Party on Saturday and it was the perfect way to kick off the Memorial weekend! The music was bumping loud and early as we checked into the event and the crowd seemed to be settling in. Some people were already wanting to cool off, and beelined right to the pool. The VIP cabanas were filled, and we were all ready to party!Apparently one of the opening Dj’s didn’t arrive until after skrillex was about to perform, but no one seemed to care or notice. Everyone was just super pumped up and excited to see Skrillex! After we bypassed the bar lines outside by getting drinks in the casino, we wandered around a bit. I like the fact that we could go in and out of the casino to get out of the sun and to test our luck on the slot machines while we were waiting for the headliner to start. At this point, the only thing that was a bit disappointing, was the fact that we never found a merch table. Perhaps once artists reach a certain point, there’s not a dire need to sell swag at their shows, but it would have been nice for a momento. The drink prices were typical, but many people seemed to opt for the ice buckets of beer because of the heat!
Since we love capturing everything that goes down here at Grimey Gatsby, we had to mention how we may or may not have got a cop in trouble with his Sergeant…oops! We were conducting business as usual, while taking some group photos with some beautiful women in flirty string bikinis, when we invited a nearby Cop to jump in the photo as well! He was eager to join in, and was posing with the ladies, having a good time and at the worst pivotal moment, his commanding officer walks around the corner! He instantly gives the cop the evil eye while giving the menacing cut-throat gesture to his neck. Needless to say, they both quickly walked off together and we didn’t see the officer for the rest of the show! …”Is it too late now to say Sorry?”
Once Skrillex appeared on stage, the crowd went wild! He was definitely prepared for the dog days of Arizona, because he greeted the fans with a super soaker! Skrillex is always notorious for creating a memorable experience as he takes his crowd on a musical journey with his positive energy and catchy beats. His presence on stage was captivating and fans were singing their hearts out to his top hits like, “Sorry” and “Mind”. After the show ended, we winded down by snagging some delicious burgers from one of the restaurants in the casino, Black Fig. This high energy affair was just what we were craving for a perfect Saturday Memorial experience. Relentless Beats and Release seriously know how to host the best events! Skrillex killed it, and we all had a great time!
