This past weekend, Florida hosted the Damage Control Tour as it hit Miami, Gainesville, and Tampa. Mat Zo, along with support from Norin & Rad, delivered quite a performance, and were lucky enough to witness their takeover in Gainesville, home of the University of Florida Gators. Proving that they can handle any college crowd, the three held nothing back as they took control of Simon’s Nightclub, which has also seen recent performances from Bro Safari, David Avila, Hook N Sling, and Sound Remedy.
California-based duo Norin & Rad kicked the night off just right. Known for their diverse influences, the two attracted the crowd's attention almost immediately, leaving little room for a dull moment. These two are, without a doubt, a force to be reckoned with.
Focusing on his recent album release, the UK's rising star performed an energetic set that included smashes like "Easy," "Pyramid Scheme," and, "Lucid Dreams". Staying true to the Anjunabeats family, he also meshed in the timeless, emotionally-driven favorite, "Sun & Moon." Zo maintained a steady energy level throughout the night as he dropped Bassnectar's Immersive Music Mixtape Side One, and remained interactive with the crowd for the remainder of his set.
Thanks to the efforts of Evolve Group and WeekendCrew, Damage Control left an impressive mark in the city of Gainesville, Florida this past weekend. From the newly-completed renovations at Simons, which included high-caliber lasers, to the crowd's vivid energy, Mat Zo's show was both invigorating and inspiring. For Floridians who didn’t get a chance to attend any of the shows this past weekend, fear not. The final stop on the tour will be in Orlando on December 21st at the Roxy.
