After the heavy rains from last night and early in the morning subsided, that North Coast Music Festival newbie feeling had finally worn off and SouthSide was ready to get down to serious business of being a party animal! This afternoon, blogspot readers, she spent most of her time hanging out at The Last Stand stage where other delightful costumed characters and attendees were in a constant state of perpetual motion aka dancing and having a good time while vibin' to the music. For this reviewer, this was a prime spot to do some people watching too because there were many fashionably dressed attendees around her.
Making her way (very carefully, SouthSide must add) towards the stage, she had arrived in time to catch the rest of Milk N Cookies' (http://www.milkncookiesmusic.com) opening act. These twin duo DJs absolutely rocked the stage, blogspot readers! They had this EDM scene bursting to life through such of a lively mix of bumpin' electronic beats and techno rhythms for the entire hour ...keeping happy people like a "Papa Smurf" (it was hoisted on a stick), a "Darth Vader" helmet wearing stick, and a fluffy pink fairy bear as well as pseudo tie-dye wearing kids everywhere dancing, hopping, et al continuously. Hey, someone brought their glittery disco ball to the party!
"...So ya ...thought ya ...might like to ...go to the show ...to feel the warm confusion, that space cadet glow..."
Are you SRTB (So Ready To Bang), blogspot readers?
SouthSide was! And so were the many hundreds now within the stage area.
After being thoroughly warmed up by Milk N Cookies, chants of "Porn N Chicken" erupted as the EDM party group set up and prepared for their hour-long performance But before the show could go on, this crowd had to have the correct look - a few red bandannas with yellow Porn N Chicken lettering were tossed around. The crowd erupted with boisterous cheers and chants as soon as they saw the Chicken and Dom "PornandChicken" Brown appearing on stage. Yep, they were SO ready to bang ...and perhaps more with Porn N Chicken Dance Party, blogspot readers. Opening with a rousing remix of Pink Floyd's In The Flesh to get the EDM party goers revved up for the fun. And like Las Vegas ...what happens at a Porn N Chicken party, stays at Porn N Chicken.
Blogspot readers, SouthSide apologizes now if she doesn't rightly describe or paint a clear picture about ALL of the insane crazy things that happened during this dance party.
Let's see - besides The Last Stand stage packed with gyrating dancers, the music Porn N Chicken provided kept inciting near riot antics and craziness especially where SouthSide (towards the sound booth). Chicken dancing all over the stage. Dom righteously blessing the crowd of people close to the stage with spurts of champagne. Even with bouts of dark clouds hanging overhead, people were having too much fun to care if it would rain or not. Oh wow - Dom's now crowd surfing towards the middle of the action where he decided to party with them before returning to grind hot electric sparks on stage with a female dancer who's also grinding. And they carefully shoot the sparks at those closest to the stage! Basically, blogspot readers, you had to be there to have witness this and more.
If you have never attended a Porn N Chicken Dance Party (usually held at EvilOlive - sorry, kids, you have to be 21 and older to attend), SouthSide highly suggests following this group on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/PornNChicken) or check out their web site (http://www.SoReadyToBang.com) or "like" them on Facebook for when and where the party will be happening next. And be SRTB (So Ready To Bang), blogspot readers, all night long! Oh get there early, for the free chicken (wings) too.
Sadly, blogspot readers, SouthSide had to leave the party early due to another show she had to cover however she would return for Day 3 of festive fun at North Coast.
Until next time, support your local scene,
