* with Lynx
If you want to see gorgeous bell dancers, festival type crowds, and killer beats, you must check out Beats Antique. ...
Opener Lynx a very innovative style with guitar looping, beatboxes, and various styles of drums. Her freestyle beatbox was the highlight of the night. It was very unique from the traditional beatboxing I've seen from reggae and hip hop artists. Lynx added vocal layers and was able to change the tempo and volume almost better then Pro-tools.
Her new album Illuminate will drop in a few months. Help her out through Kickstarter. If you contribute, you'll have a chance to get a beatboxing lesson or a private house show.
Samurai warrior behind curtains, mermaid crowd surfing, bellydance-off, did I miss anything else?? I'd say Beats Antique is fairly creative. Zoe Jakes is the center for all the wardrobe exchanges and it kept everyone's attention on her. It's almost as if she had fire-lit hula hoops and glow sticks attached to her body for the duration of the concert. Speaking of fan participation, there were a few glowing hula hoops and gypsy's playing finger tambourines in the crowd.
David Satori is the mastermind behind all the music production. Satori would scream "How you feeling you, New Orleans!", "Let's see those hands!", just when the rhythm hit. Not sure what you call the electronic banjo he was playing, but it was awesome! Mixing dubstep, afrobeat, and any genre you can think off, Beats Antique generates an incredible sound on stage.
