going to lie, I was expecting IDENTITY FESTIVAL to be a wankfest of the
utmost proportion. And for all intents and purposes, it was, with neon
and brostep ruing the day. But considering the worst that could've
happened when you unleash a cavalcade of geeked-up 20-somethings
onto an amphitheater housing three stages of aggressive electronic music
and a clearly overwhelmed security staff? At least my mother wasn't
calling me on Sunday to ask if the festival I spent my Saturday at was the
one on the news at Great Woods where all the kids overdosed on Twisted
Teas and rave pills.
show is really the only way to sum up the scene for last night's HARD
Tour stop at the House of Blues. In the above video you can peep Rusko,
who has garnered quite the buzz for himself. Even though it was Crystal
Castles that closed the show, Rusko is the reason it was hella sold out.
The audible distortion isn't because it was recorded on a 3-inch video
camera, but because it was that friggen loud.
