BOO!! – AZ recap
BOO finally creeped its way to Arizona! Rawhide event center was packed with ghouls, magical unicorns, and we even found Waldo! Relentless Beats teamed up with Insomniac Events to present us with this incredible lineup including Bijou, Wuki, G Jones, Ghastly, NGHTMRE, Snails, Excision and the infamous Knife Party!
As we arrived, we noticed that the stage was setup inside the venue, which created a fun intimate atmosphere to let loose! The fans were dancing the night away, and it was awesome to oversee the crowd up high from the VIP area. If you were lucky enough to arrive early, a few special fans received a collectable ‘BOO!’ pin as well. The early ghouls got the ghost!
They started this bass-heavy show off right with Bijou to hype up the crowd. Wuki hit the stage next, and was not a disappointment to say the least. Dude has been killing the game lately! One fan made us laugh when he said, “This Arizona line up is straight fire.. My neck will be broken after this show.” G Jones unveiled such an exciting set that really got the crowd in the mood for some devilish fun!
The only downside to that night, was the lack of food vendors, leaving the only vendor at a monopoly to charge an arm and a leg for anything. Instead of chicken and fries, we decided to fill our bellies with beer and vodka! The festivities continued as planned, when Ghastly arrived to feed the bass heads. NGHTMRE brought us through a range of emotions as it felt like we were brought to a new world with music. As everyone was filled with anticipation for the headliners, the crowd got even wilder!
As Snails hit the stage, we knew the party was in full effect! We were mesmerized with the amazing visuals and blasts of confetti pouring onto the audience. Excision also hit us with an explosive set of beats and remixes. Before we knew it, Knife party finally graced the stage and powered through their set with so much energy!
That night will now be remembered as that time we danced ourselves to death, but we would do it all again in a heartbeat! We were so excited to get grimey and we can’t wait till next year!!
