What's the Difference Between the EDM Scene and the Beat Scene?
EDM: For ladies: short jorts, shorter skirts, bra and panty sets, rainbow wigs, sequins, tutus, furry boots, breasts decked out in almost nothing and neon anything. For dudes: board shorts, neon knock-off Ray Bans, v-neck t-shirts with verbiage like "I like my girls how I like my dubstep," or no shirts at all. Glowsticks for everyone.
The Beat Scene: For dudes: pristine hightops, fresh to death jeans, flat brim hats, and high-end hoodies. For girls: high waisted pants, red lips, anything from Reformation.
