Porter Robinson @ Epic Nightclub

So, the real reason I went to this show was because I won a free ticket.  It's not that I didn't want to go, but going by myself, the fact it was a school night, and that it was at Epic (which I'd never been to) didn't really motivate me to buy a ticket.  Well it turns out, I had an awesome time.  I've entered tons of SIM Shows ticket giveaways before, never winning anything.  In fact I've even given them shit for not awarding tickets they've held contests for.  So I was pretty surprised to hear I one a ticket to Porter Robinson.  

The M Machine opened up for Porter and I was really glad I came early to see them.  They started out a bit slow although I enjoyed their sound, it was music that I would read to.  Not something that would get me dancing really.  Before you knew it though, they were picking up the pace and the show started to really transform. By the time they finished, the crowd was going crazy and everyone was dancing.  That was pretty awesome.  

I secured a spot right up front at the barrier so I had a great view with room to dance.  Porter Robinson came on and blew the crowd away.  He played a lot of great songs that kept the energy going the entire time.  You do expect to hear some of the same stuff every other DJ plays live, so it was nice that although he did hit some of those songs, his whole set wasn't full of them.  I know performers basically do the same "performance" at almost every show, so it's funny to see videos online of Porter Robinson doing the same pantomimes for the same songs.  Some of them were a little over dramatic and ridiculous.  It was hard to tell if he was having a good time or just going through the motions, but he did seem to take himself a little too seriously. 

Aside from his funny "act", the music was great.  With an additional pleasant surprise from the opening band, the night was great.
