This is the second show I have seen at Compuware Arena, normally a place to see no-frills prep hockey, transformed into a concert hall capable of holding over 3,000 and a massive sound system. While the place isn’t built for great acoustics, similar to past shows at the old Silverdome, it’s like hearing a performance in a large tin can. The advantages are a large open main floor and lots of open space. Give credit to the folks at Crofoot and the rest of the promoters for successfully pulling off a show of this scale with competent security, EMS crew and an overall successful way providing a safety buffer and still letting thousands of kids have a great time.
Paul Basic, the first DJ to perform, played a set of hip hop electronic music that served mostly as background music as the crowd milled about staking a space on the main floor or trolling around for friends. TOKiMONSTA, an Asian female DJ, came on next and played a more diverse set that pulled from several genres, she also used the mic quite a bit to let the crowd know she was really enjoying herself.
