I didn't get to the festival until ~7pm because I was busy partying it up at a Labor Day BBQ in Echo Park but I caught the end of Bookashade which is who I was trying to get there in time to see. After Bookashade, Steveo Aoki demonstrated what a giant douchebag he is by spelling his name out in lights & spending 1/2 of what felt like an eternity of a set standing on his raised platform above his lit-up last name with him arms outstretched in the air. It felt like he just wanted everyone to praise him &, believe me, he doesn't deserve any praise. My favorite part of Aoki's set was when it was over...AND when the lead singer of Weezer came out & did a song with him but even that track wasn't very good. I just wanted Steve Aoki to finish up asap because all I really care about was seeing Disco Biscuits & Pretty Lights afterwards.
Despite my disdain for Steve Aoki, Disco Biscuits & Pretty Lights electrified my face off!!! And, thanks to them, Identity Fest redeemed itself & ended up being INCREDIBLE! I also happened to have THE best crew to dance & party with which made the entire event that much more fun. Be sure to check out my videos of Disco Biscuits & Pretty Lights below. Pretty Lights' lights are SOOOO pretty!!!!
