Tailspin and Weval were the perfect combo for a summer night show, with Meow Wolf embodying the visuals for the music created from these artists. Tailspin opened the show on Tuesday night as the flow of fans came in after grabbing drinks just outside the door. The hypnotic dance beats and the ever-changing interactive floor patterns made for loosening up anyone standing still. Phones were soon out to capture anyone who was dancing along to the patterns on the ground to fill the empty spaces on the dance floor. When the beat would drop, you’d see people jumping onto a new color or pattern – you could feel the bass in your bones if you touched any of the walls.
As Weval’s time to hit the stage approached, the floor quickly filled and people were shoulder to shoulder. When the music started however, fans made room for dancing and swaying. Some fans brought items to twirl, but most had drinks in hand or were having dance contests with their partners. Weval’s work of the two friends Merijn and Harm had the room filled with electronic sound, feeling tranquil and happy at the same time. With their upbeat music attracting fans of many genres, there seemed to be a good bit of age differences in the crowd as well.
Weval’s stage presence is temperate, as they don’t move around much, but they still still mesmerized fans with the small amount of vocal sequences that created a buzzing atmosphere. Towards the end of the set, fans screamed for an encore and again for more after the final songs.
