Fans Rush The Stage At Infected Mushroom 1/16

first_imgBrooklyn Bowl has had some pretty crazy shows in its day. The relatively small venue has had some larger than life acts grace its stage, and top notch bands have left fans waiting down the block. Of all the memorable moments that have taken place inside that special bowling alley, nothing may have been as crazy as Infected Mushroom’s DJ Set on Wednesday night.The weather was crazy and it was the middle of the week, so no one really knew how many people would turn out for international electronic duo Infected Mushroom, who stopped by The Bowl for a quick DJ set in the middle of their huge tour featuring a giant live set up with 3D mapping and giant spheres. For this set up, it was just Eisen and Duvdev, posted up behind a booth, dropping Infected Mushroom favorites while keeping a rave-like atmosphere flowing for over two hours. The lack of any stage show almost worked to the group’s advantage – instead of standing and watching, the near capacity crowd went absolutely nuts throughout the entire set.How nuts? Throughout the show, several fans tried to jump on stage to dance by the booth – each person generally shoved off the stage the moment they gained their balance. All this even seemed normal as Eisen and Dudev kept crowd surfing and taking photos with the audience mid-set.  But then something wild happened – out of seemingly nowhere, fans just started jumping on stage, one after the other, until the stage was almost completely full with people dancing their asses off, hugging the DJs, and grabbing pictures. It was truly a sight to behold – the huge mob of people at one point had the DJ booth completely surrounded – you couldn’t see in, and they couldn’t see out. There were so many people that it took security some time to get everyone off, at which point it was decided that the DJs should take a break before coming out for an encore.Besides the brief mayhem on stage, Infected Mushroom fans know how to party – the dance floor was full with hardcore fans waiting on every beat, singing a long, and jumping around like crazy. Infected Mushroom’s set was top notch, proving they don’t need a live band or a massive stage set up to impress. Their deep catalogue of awesome songs and great ear for music allow them to mix together such unique and awesome sets. The set itself was definitely heavy, featuring a lot of dubstep, based on the style of their latest album, Army of Mushrooms – but they also dropped many of the psytrance beats that made them famous. Their sound is so unique, as they have crossed through so many genres in their 15+ year career, that their sets really are one of a kind.Keep an eye out for our interview with Infected Mushroom, coming next week. The guys dropped juicy details on unannounced summer festivals, upcoming collaborations with some huge names, and their future touring plans, so you won’t want to miss it.last_img read more

Here’s Which Drugs Are Most Popular At Each Major Festival

first_imgA new study reveals which drugs are most popular at which music festivals. The nonscientific study from DrugAbuse.com analyzes Instagram captions incorporating 15 different festivals, comparing drug-related references and content.The study focused on:BonnarooCamp BiscoGlastonburySummerfestElectric Daisy CarnivalBurning ManUltra Music FestivalChili Cook-OffCoachellaMad Decent Block PartyLollapaloozaHoly Ship!TomorrowlandLife In ColorMarley FestMany of the results were unsurprising, with Marley Fest taking the top spot for marijuana use, followed by Bisco and Bonnaroo. Chili Cook-Off took the cake for highest alcohol consumption, followed by Summerfest and Glastonbury. Burning Man received highest rankings in a grand total of 6 categories: DMT, Mushrooms, LSD, Crack Cocaine, Mescaline and General Drug Terms. MDMA, Molly and Ecstasy proved most prevalent at EDM-heavy fests Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Camp Bisco.The study obviously doesn’t take into account a number of primary factors such as someone using a drug term in a song lyric or as a joke, rather than actually partaking. There’s also the vast majority of people who hopefully wouldn’t go incriminating themselves through social media. Regardless, the results are still very interesting…[via DrugAbuse]last_img read more

Ex-Employee Who Reported D.C. Fire/EMS Sex Scandal Arrested

first_imgMetropolitan Police yesterday arrested a former D.C. firefighter who, sources said, told investigators about a sex ring being operated by fire department employees. Darryl Green, 42, of the 1200 block of Longfellow Street in Northwest, turned himself in at 6:30 a.m. yesterday after a warrant was issued for his arrest for indecent exposure. Fire officials said they are taking the charges seriously, and last week Mr. Fenty, Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier and Fire Chief Dennis L. Rubin held a press conference to discuss the investigation. Mr. Green was a sergeant in the fire department until last month, when he resigned after a July 30 incident in which he exposed himself to a female emergency medical technician in the lounge area of Engine 8 at 1520 C St. SE. “This arrest was a result of the quick work by our new internal- affairs task force and interagency cooperation between our hardworking fire and police departments,” Mr. Fenty said. “There is nothing more important than maintaining the public trust and we will continue to work to ensure that our public safety agencies remain departments the residents of the District of Columbia can be proud of.” “The Metropolitan Police Department cannot release the details about the incident that led to Mr. Green being charged,” said spokeswoman Traci Hughes. Miss Hughes declined to say whether the incident Mr. Green was charged in connection with took place while he was on duty. Sources told The Washington Times that during the course of the investigation Mr. Green told officials about sexual misconduct within the department.center_img The officials confirmed that they are looking into claims of sexual misconduct, which could result in criminal charges, but declined to discuss what the claims were. A police spokeswoman said the investigation is ongoing but could not provide further details yesterday. Fire officials last week confirmed that they are also investigating three cases in which female emergency medical technicians say Mr. Green offered them lucrative overtime assignments in exchange for sex. However, a news release issued by Mayor Adrian M. Fenty’s office said Mr. Green was arrested in connection with an event that occurred July 6, 2006. Sources say among the charges Mr. Green made, was that female emergency medical technicians performed sex acts for money on men, including male fire department employees, in the bunkhouses of fire stations since late last year. The prostitution may have also occurred at other locations.The sources say the ring was referred to as “D.C. Fems” – a play on the acronym for the city’s Fire and Emergency Medical Services department.last_img read more
