Trinium Paint Party @ Mojoes 2-13-15 [Recap]

10914889_1558119847807505_2545307698298108949_oLast Friday a local bar known for holding shows for all types of different genres, hosted one of their biggest to date. Mojoes in Joliet hosted a paint party EDM show with tons of local talent. With Porn and Chicken headlining this show was set to be very promising. Unfortunately it did not deliver.

The venue seemed very over crowded leaving no room to walk around. It was extremely hot with what seemed like no air circulation so the air was very humid and stagnant. This made it very hard to dance and enjoy the music. Getting passed that, the performers did a great job! The sets were on point with popular drops and great flow. The favorites of the night were Skylar Shores, The Trap House, and of course Porn and Chicken. Even though I have seen Porn and Chicken play better sets before, they all engaged with the crowd and really made it the best experience it could of been! Considering the sound kept cutting out on them throughout the entire night the guys really did a good job keeping the crowd happy! This problem alone was the result of the headliner cutting their set short.

Another huge thing that was not expected was the production. The lights they used were of great quality and they even had lasers which were a huge shock! All in all the night was very fun but there were many things that they need to improve on before I return. However if you ever have the chance to see The Trap House or Porn and Chicken, do it!

EDC Chicago Ticket and Location Info


At noon today Pasquela Rotella of Insomniac Events followed through with his promise of providing the much anticipated info about EDC Chicago details. Releasing the official dates and tweeting and instagram photo of what looks like the Chicago Speedway in Joliet. EDC Chicago will be hosted from Friday May 24 to Sunday May 26th. Tickets will go on sale at noon central time on Wednesday January 23.


People will complain that its not directly in Chicago but in my opinion no other available venue in Chicago was large enough to host the massive production that is EDC. Grant Park hosts Lollapalooza, Union Park North Coast Music Festival, Soldier Field has Spring Awakening Music Festival. This was the most logical of location though its a bit of a drive from the city.

To get tickets on January 23rd follow this link to the EDC Chicago Website. A 3 day pass will be ONLY $175 while VIP’s who have to be 21+ can enjoy the 3 day event for $299. Chicago will be the first time EDC party goers can also choose to camp at the event. Like other music festivals that showcase the camping option all campers will be allowed to walk back n forth between eh festival grounds and their campsites throughout the 3 days. If you choose to camp you must buy a camp permit which brings the general admission price to $295 and VIP to $419

Don’t be shy Chicago!! well see you in Joliet on memorial day weekend!! #JustStayChi
