Kid Sister and Flosstradamus at the Echoplex: Bunk on the Dancefloor
Like they did at her debut Coachella performance three years ago, a bunch of people exited stage-left well before Kid Sister finished her set.
In 2007, it was easy to attribute the mass exodus to any number of things -- the lure of other acts, Coachella-goers' traditionally dance over hip-hop preferences, seeking out shade or water or food -- but Saturday night's thinning out at the Echoplex is solely on her shoulders.
Flosstradamus was the night's first act to draw the full attention of the night's less-than-capacity crowd. Autobot and J2K describe themselves as "2 DJs, 4 turntables, and lots of people getting buck on the dancefloor," and throughout flashes of their set, this was true. While the Chicago House that dominated the first chunk of their hour was mostly lost on the Angelenos in attendance, Floss knew how and when to kick it up a notch: Jock Jams for hipsters.
