By 10:00 pm the temperature had dropped to a cool 85º. You could cut the humidity with a knife, but that didn’t stop hundreds of fans from showing up to House of Vans last night to see !!! and Classixx. L.A. based DJ duo Classixx best known for their smooth reworks of artists like Phoenix, Ladyhawke, Mayor Hawthorne and more warmed up the already sweaty crowd with their signature brand of new wave electro-funk.
!!! took the stage and a jolt of energy surged through the crowd. We all know that song Maroon 5 song “Moves Like Jagger,” right? After watching !!! lead singer Nic Offer perform I’m certain that song was actually meant for him.
Offer, with his Jagger like strut, hit the stage front and center, leaning into the crowd in a statue like stance while singing his lungs out. When the band took over so did his dance moves. The man can vogue like a young Madonna with pelvic thrust and gyrations that would put The King himself to shame.
-Nic Offer’s sweet dance moves nearly took down some of the stage lighting as he hung his full body weight on the metal towers of light. “Don’t fuck with those.” He said pointing to the lights. “I don’t want to Miguel anyone.”
-Offer essentially whipping a short white towel around over his head like a helicopter while viciously gyrating as the band jammed out.
