Event Review: Cash Cash @ Pacha 2/21

The boys of Cash Cash came back to native NYC on Friday for one amazing kick ass night and Joonbug got to check it out!

Our feet hurt and we still hear the bass...that's gotta be a sign Joonbug had as great a night as everyone else at Pacha this Friday. The main floor was crowded with a mix of people ranging around 19-25. From hippie tops, eclectic band tees, Pacha gear and some just straight topless... people flooded in to see the trio.

Best friends and brothers Jean Paul Makhlouf, Alex Makhlouf and Samuel Frisch recently killed it with top hit Take Me Home ft. Bebe Rexa. This amazing group has gained international success and recognition for their great dance remixes.

A Recap of the 2013 MTV EMA's

The 2013 MTV EMA’s proved to be an out of this world night full of awesome, gif-worthy moments, killer performances, and cheery celebs. Redfoo kept the space party pumping all night as the show’s host. He stripped off his suit and slipped into his most comfortable attire (a shiny, tiny speedo), and later in the show managed to stage dive into the crowd. Miley lit up a joint on stage. Will Ferrell made an appearance as the infamous Ron Burgundy and provided laughs and awkward backstage interviews with celebrities. Eminem took home the Global Icon Award and reminded us why he is a “rap god.” But the performances are what really made the night an unforgettable one.

Event Review: Life In Color

“So who wants to get wet? If you want to get wet make some motherf*cking noise!” Oh yeah, we want to get wet.

At 6 pm, just before David Solano entered the stage, hot pink paint sprayed generously form a hose onto an excited crowd. However, this was simply an introduction—basically a tease. It was the first paint- shooting of the evening, and it was used to get the crowd excited and wanting more. It worked. When David began, the energy level vastly increased and people began to show some real interest in what was taking place on stage. We heard tracks like Hardwell’s “Three Triangles (Losing My Religion),” Afrojack ft. Chris Brown’s “As Your Friend,” and a mashup of “Young, Wild and Free” (Snoop Dogg & Wiz Khalifa ft. Bruno Mars) vs. “Mammoth” (Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike). We also got to hear Solano’s latest track, “Loco.” But it wasn’t until R3hab & Solano’s “Do It (Life In Color Anthem 2013)” played that the real paint party began. Neon green and pink paint shot 40 feet into the crowd from guns, cannons, and hoses, in conjunction with thousands of pieces of white confetti. Appropriate.
