The amount of talent in New York City this past weekend was astonishing. Picking and choosing between shows to see proved to be a chore. However, Webster Hall was absolutely the place to be Friday night. The line for entry extended around the block, and the the venue was packed solid. Fans anxiously awaited the London-based rising star Tommy Trash to take stage.
The ARIA Award-nominee began his set at 1:30am, without the use of any fancy visuals, which he frankly didn't need. Known for his real dirty sound, he wowed the crowd with a collection of his own originals, remixes, edits and bootlegs sending fans into a dancing frenzy.
Tommy Trash began his set with originals Monkey See Monkey Do, Cascade, and Future Folk, transitioning flawlessly into remixes of Zedd's Shave It, and Dada Life's Kick Out The Epic Motherf**ker, and then back into originals Sex Drugs, Rock N Rolland The End.
He certainly commanded the crowd like I've never seen, keeping fans begging for more. Well-known artists Kill The Noise and Feed Me were spotted on stage to support Tommy Trash; at one point security was seen scolding Kill The Noise for parading around the stage (how dare they)?!
As promised on the DJ's Facebook page, "If clubbers expect to hear me play a lot of my own stuff then that’s what they’ll get. But also I plan on remixing my remixes and remixing my originals specifically for these shows. It will be a unique experience in that clubbers will only get to hear these tracks by seeing me live. They’ll get special versions that no other DJ has" Tommy Trash delivered just that. He brought the rockstar vibe to Webster Hall, head-banging and raging along with fans during his entire set. This is a live show you surely do not want to miss!
