So, I was really looking forward to another venue for my weekend shenanigans, but due to some weird cosmic alignment in the techno universe, the Elements Gallery never transpired, and I ended up at the Works again. But honestly, the promise of Dara, Bone and, potentially, Terry Mullan was quite tempting. Talk about a fucked up drive to Michigan and Rosa Parks, it was like a mid-summer monsoon. I swear there were crazy ass accidents the whole way there.
When we arrived there was a nice crowd packing the place out, and Dara was tearing it up in the back room. Normally, I’m not the biggest drum and bass fan, but damn, dude fucking killed that shit. It was nice to see that some extra sound was brought it to keep it pumped. I made it up front for pieces if Jesse James’ set, and I have to say it was great when they finally turned up the speakers for him, techno needs to be banged. I was impressed by Bone’s whole set, bangin techno and old school effects the whole time. The crowd really seemed to die out after 2:30, it started to look like a bunch of zombies as the night wore on. We didn’t make it as late as we could have, but I heard that Terry Mullan, the elusive Sasquatch of acid, actually showed up and played for a handful of people at the wee hours. Well, I’ll catch him eventually.
