Recap: Candyland & Krewella @ Sutra OC 8/8/13
Last night Candyland and Krewella came to Sutra Nightclub to celebrate the club’s 10th Birthday Anniversary and completely tore it up. The show was sold out and there were people still outside waiting to purchase tickets at the door. With a line outside and people already grooving inside we knew it was about to be an awesome night. Click through the break for the full review.
Although Sutra a bit small, the decor and sound system made up for it. What’s nice about Sutra is you can find bottle service tables all around the club as well as several bars. As the opening DJs were starting things up, people started to merge on the dance floor and fill up their tables. When we saw Candyland enter the club and head toward the stage we know were about to feel that bass.
As soon as Ethan Davis and Josie Martin of Candyland dropped that first beat, the crowd went insane. The energy level in the club went from a 5 to a 10 and everyone was jumping. Candyland do it all from mixing dubstep to trap to house music all while maintining that bass in your face. They dropped their huge OG remixes to Lil Jon’s “Snap Your Fingers,” Coolio’s “Gangster’s Paradise,” and even Darude’s “Sandstorm.” At one point during their set they completely switched it up and dropped System Of A Down’s “Chop Suey!” Throughout their entire set they kept their energy level up by jumping along with the crowd. They finally closed their set by taking it way back and played “Shout” by The Isley Brothers. The entire crowd sang along and Krewella was right up next.
As the Chicago trio, Krewella, came on the place blew up and you could see the excitement in everyones face. They played hit after hit and kept the place moving throughout their entire set. They dropped a bunch of their own original tracks like “Play Hard, “Come & Get It,” and “Live For The Night,” which had everyone singing along. Rain Man would spray champagne into the crowd as Yasmine yelled through the mic and Jahan kept on mixing. Unfortunately they had some technical difficulties during their set but that didn’t stop them from keeping the crowd going. The night was a complete blast and Krewella ended their set perfectly by playing one their most famous tracks, “Alive.” Keep up to date with Candyland, Krewella, and Sutra events at the following links.
