Okay so I’m lumping the DJs together because I’m guessing they’re going to be playing the raves and I AM OLD (old = 27 apparently) and have never managed to make it to a rave at Dragon*Con. I like to get up and do the day things and also the night things but that means my night ends around 2:00 or 3:00 am so I can get some sleep for the day things and the raves don’t usually start until 3:00 am-ish depending on how late the band performances run. Someone please tell me I am not alone in this! Also, if I am wrong about the DJs playing the raves please let me know as well, I’m just working on assumption here.
DJ Nemesis is an Atlanta boy who moved to Boston. DJ Nemesis plays industrial electro, electro house, EBM (which stands for Electronic Body Music and I totally don’t know what that is), mash ups, 80s, and other stuff. He’s super involved at Dragon*Con and also, according to his Dragon*Con profile, is CON-Tourage.com‘s official DJ? So that’s fun! Um, I’m not sure what else to say about a DJ, so here are some clips:
DJ Spider is a LADY, which will help y’all tell her apart. She’s based in Charlotte. She’s been voted Charlotte’s Best Party DJ for awhile. I’m going to guess she’s also playing one of Dragon*Con’s late-night raves. Here’s her Dragon*Con bio–I like the part where she talks about having a Drama Free zone. I RESPECT THAT DJ SPIDER. She plays primarily goth/industrial music with some 80s and electro thrown in. I’m having trouble finding music clips of her because there is a dude DJ Spider who is more hip hop and he seems to be dominating the DJ Spider youtube search which, lame.
So, we have a male DJ and a female DJ, they’ll probably be playing the raves, they might be playing some other things but I don’t think we’ll know until it is closer to Dragon*Con. If anyone wants to chime in on the raves and what they are like and if they are fun please do–like I said, they’re past my bedtime, and the only report I have to go on is my boyfriend’s. He went to a rave his first year of Dragon*Con (before I’d met him) after he and his friends had some drinks with a guy whose name he won’t tell me and he says it was basically dark drunky dance times with glow sticks and he refuses to tell me anything else about it so I guess he had a good time? Regardless, I totally want to go to a rave this year. Maybe. Mostly just to check it off the Dragon*Con bucket list.
So, I’m going to give the DJs one thumb up–splitting the difference between no thumbs (because odds are if I couldn’t see who was DJing I couldn’t tell you who was DJing) and two thumbs because I’d totally like to go to a rave buuuuuuuut tired, guys. Tired.
Seriously, give me some help on this one!
