Where do I start??? In a word? UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE!
I was just telling teriaki that over the last few months I've enjoyed the parties I've gone to but I haven't really been blown away by any of the sets. I started to think that I was jaded or that I was "over it." But Chris Liebing changed all that on Friday night. He gave me back that WOW! feeling. Reminded me why I love this music so much and how much a dj's set could get my heart pounding.
We got in line at Avalon at midnight. Had about a 10 minute wait. Was texting w/ Tj5 who was already inside. What a surprise I had no idea you'd be there! Once inside it was pretty crowded! So many more people than I expected. Got a few drinks and went to relax on the couch behind the dj booth and wait for Liebing to take the decks.
I saw him walk in and I'm pretty sure my exact words were "wow, he's a lot shorter than i remember!" LOL My friend Ad's friend took me into the booth so I could say hi to Chris. Ya'll remember how much trouble I had talking to PvD? NOT THIS TIME! I know I must have been gushing! I told him how much I loved his set in Miami and how excited I was to see him. We talked for a bit and he flashed me that larger than life smile I think my knees actually buckled!
Can't remember when exactly he took the decks. 1:30 ish? He started banging right from the start. Having my friends with me, especially the lovely Ms. Prplhz, made the night even better. Made my way back into the booth several times and talked it up w/ his manager. When I wasn't in there or taking periodic bathroom breaks, I never left the dancefloor. The smile never left my face... or Chris's! He seemed to really enjoy himself. He has so much energy. I love when the dj is enjoying his set as much as you are!
He spun till about 5:45 am. I took a spot on one of the speakers and closed out his set dancing my heart out! He was throwing out some t-shirts at the end and I snagged one. I think it says "Its Friday, is the weekend" Something like that. Thanks to Mikey for the translation
Anyhow, I'm a horrible trainspotter and very new to the techno genre so I won't even make an attempt. Andreas - my international text msging bill is going to be HUGE!
I had a blast. I'm still smiling " />
