Flying Lotus at the Ogden Theatre, 10/18/12


FLYING LOTUS @ OGDEN THEATRE | 2/4/12

The Ogden Theatre was hit last night with the bowel-shaking earthquake that is Flying Lotus, who opening his set with a sample from Lil Wayne's "I feel like dying." While we didn't check with every single person, we're pretty sure the bass-emitting frequencies from the subs sent shivers down everybody's spines. The hairs in our nostrils tickled with the altered sound waves, and all in all, we were all unprepared for what was about to happen: Low End Theory meets Denver.
