Steve Aoki Bday Bash!

DIM MAK always throws a great party on Tuesdays @Cinespace. And when their CEO and Celebrity DJ Steve Aoki has his birthday party there too, it is bound to be mayhem! Luckily for myself I'm friends with the  DIM MAK door staff and breezed in after pounding some fists. Now normally there is an open Vodka bar from 10-11, however because of the massive amount of people who showed up early so they wouldn't be waiting in line all night, the open bar was over by like 10:35! Total buzz kill but whatever, the night was young.

The special DJ sets were finally announced!

Yup. So first up was The Fire and Reason. The singer was a little Brazilian sauce pot! She had everyone mesmerized, and it wasn't cause of her amazing voice...haha. But they didn't sound half bad either. Cool indie/electro pop sound with some Brazilian cultural influences thrown in, like when they sang a song in Portuguese.

So about this time Iliana met up with me and snuck in a delicious chardonay disguised in a Smart Water bottle, haha gotta love it. She was already pretty tipsy and decided to let me enjoy her bottle. Thanks babe ;)
We fought to get to the front of the stage only to realize that they had blocked off the VIP area that we normally kick it in because it was reserved for Steve's friends only. Well to be honest I'm not a close friend of his or anything so whatever. We dealt with the crowd for a while that was slowly working themselves into a drunken frenzy. Then Adam Freeland laid down a pretty solid set but I couldn't really get into it.

By the time Steve Aoki took the stage the place was a sweaty mass of people all crowding to get as close as possible to the long haired, shirtless, crowd surfing, screaming DJ. It was madness and I had to hang back because well, I'm too old for getting kicked in the face and bumped nonstop. I like a little space in my party. So these pics aren't that close but you will definitely get the vibe of the night. Aoki is famous for a reason, he fucking kills it!! I've seen him countless times at LAX and Cinespace among other LA clubs and he never disappoints, really. Even his shitty sets are far better than most DJ's out there.

Steve Aoki aka Kid Millionaire, the man of the hour.

So as you can see it was an amazing night of electronic music in LA. If you were lucky enough to be a part of it let me know what you thought of the DJ's and crowd. Thanks!
Til next time,
