It promised to be an event for true breakheads at the Viper Room in West Hollywood. World-class breakbeat artist Evil Nine was scheduled for a rare L.A. appearance along with opening act Destructo. On a cool and unassuming Wednesday night on the Sunset Strip, some serious entertainment was about to go down.
The evening began on a solid note, with Destructo dropping smooth and solid electro breaks and funky remixes for a crowd that clearly needed a little time to warm up. Sometimes that’s how it goes on the dance floor. Beginning in the nines for a show that would go past 1:30 a.m., you may have the crowd on your side even though they’re not prepared to show it…yet.
