With the biggest crowd the F Shed has collected since its recent opening, Krewella was well received by upstate New York. Packed from front to back, the crowd almost reached capacity as more than 4,000 tickets were sold for last nights show. With a crowd that were dressed for Halloween celebrations you could tell Syracuse was ready to get one of the biggest party weekends of the year started. With the help of two amazing openers - Candyland and Seven Lions - getting the crowd pumped, people were just itching to get wet with the headlining trio.
Last night at the unorthodox venue, The F Shed, the unorthodox duo from Colorado, Big Gigantic, came on stage as part of their Sky High Tour to put on a show that just kept getting better and better. Their saxophone and drums filled the place up with some of the grooviest tunes that EDM has to offer. All live on set, this is more than just a DJ on the boards – Dominic Lalli kills it on the sax while Jeremy Salken rocks it on his drum set. Their jazzy jam-band sound, along with their dub-synth production, makes for a sound unlike any other.
Josh Steele, better known as Flux Pavillion, was fresh off his performance the night before at the Wescott Theater, ready to play for another sold out crowd. With a packed out theatre, Flux was ready to come back with a fresh reload of the bass cannons. Playing all his hits, as well as some of his new stuff, the dub wubbers all got to hear what they came to hear: that raw dubstep. It was nothing more and nothing less than that.
