Avicii @ Glow, Fur Nightclub, Washington DC 6/25/2011

Avicii invaded our nation's capital this past weekend and completely tore the house down. Opening DJ Matt Goldman put on one of the best opening sets I've seen in a long time, getting the crowd's blood flowing just in time for Avicii's entrance with a concoction of progressive and techy sounds. Avicii climbed onto the decks around midnight to the raucous cheers of a sold-out crowd at Fur nightclub and proceeded to crush the dance floor with a 3 hour set that featured most of his biggest hits alongside other relatively unknown yet equally massive bangers. Good vibes persisted and energy was high throughout, with fists pumping and people jumping around from start to finish; ending the night with the crowd firmly in the palm of his hand. Toward the end of his set, Avicii played a murderous block of his anthems back to back to back, with the crowd belting out every song at the top of their lungs or otherwise singing along to the familiar melodies with unintelligible syllables of passion. It was exhaustively awesome.

This first track was probably one of my favorite selections out of the entire night, the first drop sounds absolutely INCREDIBLE on a huge system. Do yourself a favor and skip to the 1 minute mark and wait for the drop if you want to FEEL what it was like to be there on Saturday. This song is straight up massive when pumping through a PA system like that of Fur.

For his encore at about 3 AM, Avicii played a combination of two remixes of the classic Adrian Lux anthem ' Teenage Crime,' starting with the techy intro of the Axwell Remode and mixing into the end of Daniel Rose's massive big room edit (download them both below). And then to follow that up and close out what was a legendary night Avicii did one of the coolest things I've ever seen live, mixing straight into what I can only guess was his personal edit of 1990's hip hop anthem 'Jump Around' by House of Pain, replete with fat-ass kicks underneath. Needless to say, the crowd went absolutely NUTS, with everyone doing their best to do as the song says and jump around like crazy people. I hope you're starting to grasp how fucking insane it was at Fur this Saturday, with people constantly going bonkers to the soaring sounds of the Swedish Savant, Avicii.
