Nervo - Maya Day and Nightclub - 5/17/2014
Amanda Savage Australian sisters Nervo performed at Maya Day and Nightclub Saturday night.
Old Town was congested on Saturday night, what I assumed to be a combination of ASU graduation celebrations, the Mario Lopez appearance at International and Nervo's performance at Maya Day and Nightclub.
If you have a ticket or table, getting into Maya usually isn't a problem. There is a normal amount of waiting, and as long as you are dressed decently and have put yourself together, and aren't already completely wasted yet, you're good to go. There is, however always a ticket-less crowd that hovers around the front, who tries to hustle their way into entry. Groups of hot girls that expect to just be able to do things because they're hot and guys coming up with all sorts of exaggerations about how their friend is so-in-so -- it's really entertaining.
Inside it was busy, but not as busy I had anticipated by judging the congested streets outside of the club and the fact that an A-list DJ was performing. A dancer in the back pool area wore a metal outfit she would rub an electric saw across to create sparks, and acrobats in wigs and light-up leotards extended themselves from the main room's ceiling on ropes.
Nervo entered just before 12:30 a.m. There is no backstage or backroom area directly behind the DJ booth, so the girls were escorted by security through the dance floor. Nervo entered with grace, Miriam "Mim" and Olivia "Liv" Nervo looked fashion-forward, as expected. Liv wore what appeared to be a leather sweater. The print was divided baseball-jersey-style, with off-white sleeves (and spiked cuffs). The torso and chest region was a collage of vintage post cards. She matched it with black leggings and completed it with her staple mohawk.
Mim wore her hair down and wavy with a black boho hat, over-sized acid wash jean jacket, tribal thigh-length leggings under with high waist jean shorts, and over-the-knee boots. When she took off her jacket she revealed a backless, black leotard with an exposed leopard-print bra.
The girls waited a few moments as the opener mixed out of his set, casually drinking a Heineken out of the bottle, exchanging thoughts. The DJ booth was a small space, and lined with staff working the event.
