Thomas Clapp 903772133 Music History 8 – Disc 1I Venue Assignment The electronic dance music show that I attended was the Rusko concert at the Wiltern on May 14 th . The doors opened at 8 pm and the first opening DJ, Destructo, went on at 9. I arrived around 9:45 pm as Destructo was winding down his set. The venue is down Wilshire inland quite a ways; so far that we actually took the 10 freeway Western exit to get there. The Wiltern is in a fairly busy part of Los Angeles, meaning that there was a good amount of pedestrian and automobile traffic in the area that was not caused by this show, and also there were many tall buildings brightly lit up, including the Wiltern with its grandiose neon sign. However, the venue certainly was not in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. It was an 18 and over show, so there was a line outside of the venue with security guards checking ID’s and doing a very thorough security pat down. Unbeknownst to me, people were not allowed to bring any sort of gum, candy, or glow sticks, which is quite different than the average rock or reggae concert in which the main concern is weapons or alcohol (which of course also were not allowed here either). The inside of the venue was quite fancy looking and impressive. It had a large, open lobby where vendors were selling Rusko t-shirts, snack foods, and most importantly water bottles, which were a popular purchase because a lot of people were quite thirsty and sweaty both from dancing and drugs. The ceiling and walls were painted with elaborate designs both in the lobby and the main hall. The main hall had a lower standing area that was separated into two parts: the pit right near the DJ and another area further back that was separated by a short wall. The downstairs tickets were roughly 5 dollars
