Control at Avalon got a special treat last Friday night when the Rising Fall Tour made its Los Angeles stop. This show was extra special as it was live streamed, showing the world how Los Angeles gets down.
When I first walked in there was a slight chill in the air as groups of people began to walk in and take their place front in center of the stage as to figuring out the best spot to claim their teritory . The chill was soon gone as things would really heat up.
The night really got bumping as Bones set the tone with some beats to warm up our feet and prepare us for the crazy night ahead. As 11 rolled around, Nom De Strip took the decks kicking off the official live stream and complete dance floor madness. The energy in the club was starting to radiate with not only heat, but good vibes.
By the time 12 came around and Chris Lake was on the decks the crowd was getting anxious to just go hard. Between the confetti blaster, fog machine, and infectious tunes, it's safe to say Avalon and Chris Lake provided the best setting for a Friday night.
When TJR took the stage, the energy was alive and the sweat unavoidable. The room was hot and so were the tunes as Victor Niglio's "Jiggy" and TJR's "Hold On, Were Going Home," edit were dropped.
The biggest surprise of this show would have to be the b2b2b performed by Nom De Strip, Chris Lake, and TJR. Never have I witnessed the previous DJs who had performed early that night come back on stage to close out a set. The fluidity and variety of styles between the three were so harmonious that it was a set to remember.
If you didn't get the chance to attend Avalon on Friday, and also missed out on the live stream, don't worry. The Rising Fall Tour is blazing hot and continuing on to places like Las Vegas and the Groove Cruise LA.
