Last Monday’s bill at the Holocene included Toro y Moi, Jogger and LA’s Nosaj Thing. It’s been a busy couple of weeks here at W+K and it was nice to finally attend a show at the Holocene. In spite of living on the opposite side of the block, this was my first time to check out the venue. It’s a deceivingly large space, with methodically partitioned rooms to help maintain a small-venue atmosphere.
First off, this has got to be the best live show I’ve ever seen performed by a DJ. Adam Guzman and Julia Tsao (Fair Enough) provided the visual choreography projected upon Nosaj Thing’s backdrop. The light show was dialed in so well with the music that it could almost fit into any contemporary art exhibition as a performance piece.
Toro y Moi provided as my soundtrack this last Summer and it was good to relive those warmer months back in San Diego. Unlike some of his older sets, he remained pretty stationary during his show. I would’ve loved to see him leave the keyboards for some of the dancier tunes such as Low Shoulder, but it was still an awesome set. Glad I made it out.
