Half of SoundCloud Showed Up To 1788-L's CRAZY Debut In LA Last Night [VIDEO]
The past 6 months have been insane for mystery artist 1788-L. Though the debut track from the project was “Replica” in January, it wasn’t until the “Particle Arts” flip that people started taking notice. And it was only a month later that Rezz was playing out an unreleased ID that would later become “HEX” at Ultra Music Festival.
The rise of 1788-L has been nothing but meteoric, but even that was nothing compared to the hype behind the debut live show of the project last night in Los Angeles with Brownies & Lemonade. An insane amount of people RSVP’d for the event which could safely only hold roughly 800 – if they pushed it. RSVPs reopened the day of the event and were closed again just 15 minutes, after presumably hundreds more flooded the submission forms. The line for the event wrapped around the block twice an hour before doors opened.
In attendance at the event were Quix, Luca Lush, Ducky, Boombox Cartel, Ooah from The Glitch Mob, Mr Carmack, Chet Porter, Electric Mantis, Brillz, HVDES, Hex Cougar, Pixel Terror and probably more that just wanted to experience the event.
Take a look at the videos and tweets from the event below.
Dirtybird BBQ Set To Make Its LA Debut
At the end of 2017, Dirtybird records held a nationwide contest asking fans what city they should bring their legendary BBQ event to next. From Christmas day until New Years, fans had the chance to vote for their city to be filled with the wafting scents of BBQ smoke and the sound of beats from the dirtiest label in the game banging in the background all day long. Even though Dirtybird was founded in San Francisco, the label has been heavily embraced by the Los Angeles scene and it has become something of a sister city for them – so it came as no surprise that Los Angeles was the winner of the voting contest by a landslide!
Now, thanks to voters, next weekend Dirtybird’s roster of grillmasters and studio-chefs will be in town for Dirtybird BBQ’s Los Angeles debut! In addition to great food and music, all fans have the chance to participate in the Dirtybird BBQ Best In Show and compete for the chance to win a full-year Birdfeed Subscription and a pass to Dirtybird Campout.
Do the chicken dance at our Dirtybird BBQ Best In Show for your chance to win a year of Birdfeed and a ticket to…
The Best In Show contest has four categories: best custom creations, best costume, best dance moves, and overall best in show. Be sure to grab an entry form when you arrive at the box office or at the merch booth. Fans will even get the chance to be the Simon Cowell (or more likely a “Coca-Cola” cup wielding Paula Abdul) of the judging panel as one lucky fan will be picked from the crowd to help judge the contest! If you need some help brainstorming ideas check out this video of the Best in Show contest held at the Oakland edition of BBQ.
Taking place this upcoming Sunday at the LA Memorial Coliseum Plaza and utilizing a time-tested and perfected party recipe of great food, the best crowds around and, of course, saucy sets from your favorite Dirtybird DJs, this weekend is set to be the best BBQ Dirtybird fans will attend all year! The lineup includes Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Wajatta (Reggie Watts & John Tejada), Justin Jay, Christian Martin, and Dateless B2B Lucati. The party is 18+ and tickets are unfortunately completely SOLD OUT. However, tickets for the Official After Party at Exchange LA are still available here.
