Decadence boasts that it's one of the world's largest New Year's Eve parties. People do drugs, dance, blast out their ear drums and stumble around in the cold before and after over two nights starting December 30. Social media, of course, gives people the ability to broadcast all that in real time.

The first round of tweets about Decadence have started spreading across the Internet. Here are fifteen of our favorites:

Tai was ready to party from the moment the alarm went off:

Sadie offered a ton of good advice:

Ahead of the show, Zeds Dead waxed philosophical about the true meaning of "decadence":

The Decadence team wanted to remind fans that anybody who attempts to give someone medical help is not liable if things go wrong:

Ahead of the night, Sante Guajardo was hanging out with his dad at the Broncos game when the two decided to go to Decadence. They're looking for tickets for Dad's first rave.

Lalaland is the kind of upstanding guy who can't wait to spend the night with rave girls (thankfully, for Denver, he's going to the Arizona event instead...):

Tam's dressing like she wants to, even if she freezes:

These two fans appear ready to rob a bank:

Does anybody make a Decadence calendar? This nest of gym rats, crunching in one last workout, seems ready to pose for it.

Fred, a Lyft driver, had his first Decadence ride of the night. He couldn't help but snap a selfie:

The show was supposed to start at 6:30 p.m. — so why weren't the doors open at 6:32 p.m., wondered Jason:

Once the party got started, Denver chanted louder than Alison Wonderland's music — and that's not easy:

Above & Beyond offered the crowd some contemplative observations:

Tue couldn't stand the pushy crowd — especially Skrillex fans:

Though ZENergizer Bunny found Skrillex's set to be jaw-dropping:

Decadence Night Two starts at 6:30 p.m. tonight, December 31, at the Colorado Convention Center, 700 14th Street. Tickets are $129 to $159 and are available at AXS.
