2004/10/30 Halloween Weekend Saturday: 13H of Trance continuing with Popsicle Trance Party
π 2004-10-30 23:00 by Merlin in Clubbing, Festivals
You can see the evening in the Picture library of Popsicle Trance Party in San Francisco)
After about 6H of watching the Tiësto concert, and a failed attempt at a quick nap, I had multiple options for that evening. I hadn't quite recovered from the previous night with Paul Van Dyk, but somehow, the Popscicle party looked like a party not to miss, so I showed up around 11-ish, doped up on some energy drink.



While getting in was a disaster due to a huge line, and only one single person selling tickets, in a very inefficient fashion. Even with being "line efficient", it took me 30mn to get to the box office, only to realize that they didn't take credit cards, and that they had raised the price from $45 to $50, so I was $4 short. This plain sucked, there was no ATMs anywhere (this pier was really in the middle of BFE) and it was quite hard to find anyone in the line who was willing to give me $5 in exchange for a check, but eventually I found someone (thank you again, whoever you were) and finally got in.

Well, all I can say is that it was well worth the effort going there and getting in: 4 rooms with different kinds of Trance (ok, that alone was cool), but the main room also had some really cool lighting:











Later, came Justine Suissa, who sung 4 of her songs, live. That was just really sweet, as I knew all of them and she also does have a good voice. I used the opportunity to migrate to the first row, right in front of the DJ booth, since, well, you can't get any closer than that :)





Justine just rocked, this idyllic moment was only too short, but at least I was able to capture just a few bits of a few of her songs: Then, came Lange. To my great shame, I'll admit to not having known who he was until I saw and heard him spin. I only figured out later that he was a well known british DJ who had a been on a State of Trance many times (to my defense, it's not very easy to recognize his name when AVB speaks Dutch on TV).
All I can say about him is that he rocked. Not only did he seem like the nicest guy (got to shake his hand too), but he was really loving what he was doing, and spinning some great tunes. While I was supposed to be completely dead by then, his music just kept me alive.







With the time change, Lange finished around 03:00, but then it was only 02:00, and time for Above and Beyond to rock the house (at least I knew them beforehand due to the many tracks and remixes they've done).
They were also spinning some good stuff, which I really enjoyed for a little more than an hour, but I eventually ended up going home because I was beyond dead, and still had a boring, sleep inducing, drive back from San Francisco.





The pictures and videos hardly do the evening justice, but they're still quite enjoyable to browse (especially the small videos, since the sound is almost half decent :-))
