Rusko, Marquee Theatre, 11/11/12
Rusko @ Marquee Theatre| 11/11/12
Last night marked the highly anticipated rescheduled date for English producer/dubstep DJ Christopher Mercer, who performs under the moniker of Rusko. Mercer was unable to perform in May due to illness, according to Steve Levine Entertainment's Facebook event. The headlining DJ didn't just show off his improved health last night, he seemed to have just as much fun (if not more) than the audience.
Melissa Fossum These gals said they weren't freezing because they live in Flagstaff.
The Marquee was at about half capacity last night, giving guests plenty of room to dance. A rescheduled hyped up show should have had a better turn out, especially since most fans probably have Veteran's Day off. I can't complain though, it was a nice alternative to last months' packed Bassnectar sauna.
EDM shows are always a great place to people watch. The usually scantily-clad fans tend to be a huggy bunch, and if that's not enough for you, it's hilarious to watch people freak out while watching spinning glowsticks. Female fans are a resilient bunch-- 55 degree weather didn't deter most from dancing in bikinis or underwear. Perhaps those fuzzy boots are warmer than I thought.
Some gals were crafty with their attire, sporting torn black leggings under their bright neon tutus. Guys were lucky since you typically don't see too many dudes rocking banana hammocks at raves. The gents were a bit more creative with their outfits, dressing up as folks like Fred Flintstone, a jester, and a robot.
Rusko may not have had the most star-studded support, but it was pretty cool that the show featured three local DJs, providing a great warm up for Rusko.
