Jimmy Burns and TYR (pronounced "tire") both did great jobs as support for the night. TYR's remixes blended perfectly into the crowd, and he played up until the countdown for the first paint explosion, which was prefaced with a clip touting "Life in Color." For whatever reason, the MC tried desperately to have everyone sit down in order to watch the video. Naturally, this failed, and by the time the commercial for Life in Color ended, the few that did sit down were up and waiting for the explosion of music and paint. Batting a thousand, the MC then asked if everyone wanted make what he described as the "best Harlem Shake video." Not so much, turns out.

Basscrooks followed the countdown, and the name fits the act perfectly. Although the group doesn't have the most original name, its sound fit perfectly with the night and had the whole place going crazy. It will be interesting to see how these artists fare down the line as the genre continues to evolve into a different sound and scene. On this night, though, the tunes fit perfectly.

Borgore closed the night out, and besides the paint melee, this is clearly was what most people were waiting for all night. With a huge following, Borgore has made his mark on EDM by essentially being the dirty boy of the bunch. His songs are so laced with sexual innuendo that it's not even fair to call it innuendo -- it's just dirty. What better music is there really for a sexually charged crowd of new college students who want nothing more than to party their asses off? These music fans aren't here for the complex layers of Ableton samples. They're here for a good party with fun music. They want to smile all night, party with their friends, have a good time.

And if that was indeed the goal, well, mission accomplished.
