DAYGLOW Trenton: 2 Nights of Paint Parties
The first of two Dayglow parties (presented locally by Art of Electronica) kicked off at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, NJ last night.
The chilly night air didn’t keep party people from lining up early outside the venue for a chance to get inside and close to the stage.
By the time the doors opened shortly after 8pm, the lines were quite long.
Once inside, Dayglowers, dressed in white from head to toe, made their way to the floor of the venue, as DJ Dubsef got the party started.
The steady stream of people continued to flow in from outside and the venue began filling up.
Independent Philly has covered several Dayglow events in the past and we knew that this was still the calm before the storm.
Dubsef has some great energy on stage and it quickly spread to the crowd as anticipation for the paint grew and grew.
Aside from the DJ’s for the evening that included Dubsef, Pressure, and headliner David Solano, there was no shortage of amazing visual performers.
Among them were dancers, aerialists, stilt-walking robots with cold cannons, a crazy interactive laser show, a human balloon, and the one and only Devil From Acapulco.
Around 1030pm, the paint countdown ended and the blasts began. Paint from cannons, bottles, and pump guns rained down on the crowd, accompanied by a steady snow of confetti.
From that moment on, it was 2.5 hours of pure madness.
Both Pressure and David Solano put on a top-notch performance that kept the crowd dancing from beginning to end. Even the security guards were head-bobbing.
Sick beats, crazy visuals, and the paint blasts continued until 1am when the party came to and end.
How do you follow up a crazy night like that? You do it all over again.
The second sold-out night kicks off tonight at 8pm. We’ll have all the details (and the pics to prove it) tomorrow.
