Something Wicked at Sam Houston Race Park, 10/26/2013
6:57 p.m. Shogun is playing something vaguely meditative, the crowd is raising its arms to the sky, and I'm wondering if there are any trance music yoga classes out there.
8:05 p.m. Now that the sun is gone, it's easier to appreciate just how much bigger the festival feels this year. It's not just a size thing either, although the main stage is gigantic. Each stage has its own identity: Shadow Field is huge and has an impressive display of screens, Mystic Meadows (trance stage) has a neat pyramid design and a ton of lasers, and the Bass Crypt is more closed-in and intimate. Things are bigger, yes, but not throw together. Well done, DDP and Nightculture.
8:10 p.m. Watching Cookie Monsta because Old Man Rocks Off recommended him. There's so much bass coming out of the speakers I wonder if my atoms are going to shake themselves apart.
8:50 p.m. I'm not sure what this is (above), but I couldn't pull my eyes away.
9:04 p.m. All my notes say are "sexy witches at Crizzly." Apparently that was all you needed to know.
9:45 p.m. Crizzly ends his set in the crowd. Now what you know about them Texas boys?
