FLUX PAVILION & DOCTOR P at FILLMORE | 8/6/11


Sub.Mission, Colorado's leader in the dubstep production movement, teamed with Triad Dragons to present Flux Pavilion and Doctor P at the Fillmore Auditorium. Backed by a strong team of locals including Dodger, RumbleJunkie, DJ Ishe, and Coult-45, the night proved to be the precedent for future bass shows. If you didn't witness the Circus, don't worry, we were on site to capture the evening of non-stop dancing.

Before the night even got started, Dayquil had a little run in with an i-beam that rendered him unconscious, and assumed concussed. Dodger and Dayquil were billed to play together, but the inch-long gash above his eye was too much. The paramedics assured us he was in stable condition and perhaps was able to catch the tail-end of the show.

The line started building at 5:00 p.m., two hours before the doors opened. It ran smooth until 9:00 p.m. when late arrivals started piling in and bottle-necking at the security checkpoint. The Fillmore maintains a strict search policy that typically leaves a lot of contraband on the ground.

Ms. Easy's crew of clowns paraded around the packed auditorium on miniature bikes, big-wheel bikes, spring-stilts, all while maintaining costume and character.

DJ Ishe answered questions about the night and the scene just moments before he joined Coult-45 on stage for a dual set. The general consensus for many of the opening DJs was simply the scale of this show. While some have seen this crowd level on the steps of Red Rocks or in the field at Sonic Bloom, for many, this is the biggest crowd they've played for.

The doors opened at 7:00 p.m. in unison with the first 808 to hit the speaker box. The floor flooded and remained packed all night with hungry dubsteppers crowd surfing, dub-moshing (less aggressive than, say, a Rage Against the Machine pit in Mexico City?) and general raging.

As expected at a sixteen plus show, the smoking area had a steady stream of people through the door. The recent additions to Colfax-facing wall of the Fillmore include brick pillars in lieu of the usual fenced in concert-cattle look of a sold-out show.

RumbleJunkie sat at the tables for quite some time last night -- some say too long; some say just right. Either way, he killed it. His banger-stacked set left everyone thirsty for the good stuff.

...and the fix came with the climactic set-closing parade from the Ms. Easy crew. Though only one pass was allowed and the stage looked dangerously packed, it brought uproars and was the perfect way to celebrate RumbleJunkies set.

The Doctor is in the house. Doctor P, that is. There's something about seeing an idol, someone who sets the tone for what other DJs all over the world will play at shows. Doctor P (pictured) and Flux Pavilion are those people.

The front gate swelled for the entirety of the show, especially when the Doctor P and Flux took to the tables. Security passed cups of water to the die-hard front fans, but it was mentioned that none will ever be enough. It was sweltering, but worth every drop.

A new scene at the Fillmore: Live artists lined the west wall of the auditorium. This happens regularly at Cervantes and is becoming more and more prevalent at electronic shows at any venue. It's positive it two ways: The live expression and reaction to the music is interesting, and it provides a forum for aspiring artists to show, and potentially sell, their art.

Do you see that shirt? It says "Denver Dubstep," and it is proudly being worn by many people. Sub.Mission has built something that is growing larger than expected, and as Flux said at a break in his set, "I heard Denver is the dubstep capital of the [United] States!" And we aim to keep it that way.

A non-stop sea of hands, bouncing along with the bass, anticipating the drops, nodding heads, grinding nuts-to-butts and possibly even shitting their pants. The bass was that heavy.

If you've been to any dubstep show in the past year, you've heard Flux Pavilion and Doctor P. If someone is trying to explain what dubstep is, they turn on Flux Pavilion. The act is a standard in the genre, a monster offspring of the drum and bass movement, which also came shining through last night during the co-headliners sets.

The out-pouring crowd offered drivers a glimpse into the fucked up world of lingerie, neon, head bands, glow sticks, techno-clowns, and dubstep. Welcome to Denver.
