First Avenue is starting the week as the Twin Cities coolest EDM venue. Odesza are in town for two nights! Promoting the Deluxe edition of their album “In Return” their current tour is a huge success selling out multiple dates at each of their stops.
Aussie DJ Hayden James and LA’s Big Wild started off the evening with energetic sets.
ODESZA the electronic duo consisting of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight came on stage and the crowd went nuts. Supported by 2 horn players and a media screen they blended EDM beats with dreamy vocals. Lights were mostly backlit (so excuse the lack of faces in the images) and added to the overall feel. For “Say My Name” they blew enough confetti into the crowd to make the housekeeping staff weep, and pretty much exploded the stage in light.
This was the most EDM show I have covered at First Ave in my 2 years of shooting there and judging by last night, I need to do more of it. ODESZA were spectacular and if you can steal or beg a ticket of someone for tonight’s show, get your butt over to First Avenue.
