Kaskade 08/03/12: Egyptian Room at the Old National Centre – Indianapolis, IN 

I am often called a concert junkie and the fact is that I am. I will go see any live music except for country, but who are we kidding if I won tickets to a country show I would probably check it out. So you know I was not going to miss a chance to see Kaskade perform live when tickets ended up in my hands.  I’m not much into the EDM scene myself, but loved Deadmau5 when I saw him several years ago. Having heard lots of good things about Kaskade I figured why not head out to Indianapolis and check his show out?

With a food truck festival going down in the Murat parking lot it was a bit of a struggle to get to will call. The tickets I won from Twitter were waiting for me there and the slight hassle caused me to miss most of the opening act Alvin Risk. I believe Risk is what would be categorized as dubstep. Whatever the proper genre, what we caught was exciting down to his lovely black and white checkered sweater vest. You can check him out on Twitter by clicking here.


Kaskade started around 10pm and put on an amazing set. He started out with “Eyes” and the crowd was moving and grooving. Off the bat it seemed to be a full out rave as the glow sticks and huge LED screens make you feel like you are in a swirling room. The massive strobe lights also help that sensation.  It is quite magical I will say and the music makes you move. Kaskade did a great job, the lights, music, atmosphere and overall presence that he had from the stage showed. Kaskade was controlling the crowd with his music and the crowd didn’t seem to mind.

His full set of songs is listed below, I’m not familiar with the majority of them, but did recognize a few.

 

Set list:

  1. Eyes
  2. Be Still
  3. Room for Happiness
  4. Stars Troll
  5.  All you Paris
  6. Fire in your Antidote
  7. Empty Streets Cascade
  8. Angel on my Shoulder
  9. No one knows who we are (brand new song)
  10. 4am Quasar
  11. Lick It
  12. Don’t stop Hells Bells
  13. Llove
  14. Lessons in Love
  15. Call out Epic
  16. It’s you it’s hertz
  17. Move for the legend
  18. Turn it down
  19. Invisible 5am
  20. Dynasty
  21. Raining
  22. How Long Alien
  23. I’ll never dream I’m in love
  24. Sending my Love (encore song)

It was a great show put on by Kaskade as you can see in the photos. I loved everything he did and it was just an amazing night. Big thanks to the fine folks at the Old National Centre who allowed me to win the tickets via Twitter. A truly great venue for a great night of music I can’t wait to cross paths with both Kaskade and the Murat in the not so distant future.
