An Online Rave?! We Party All Day, At Home, By Ourselves.
|The crowd goes wild.|
6:40pm: As we dance, we experiment with doing exactly what the lyrics say to, which means "fucking hands up in the hair" for about 10 minutes. We're getting tired. We've been raving like, all day.
6:45pm: Someone named "Corey Bacon" has become our fan on Mixify, which is hosting this rave, which begs the question, why the fuck do we not have more fans right now? And also, what does that even mean?
6:50pm: Weermets set is a pure Top 40 EDM fusion fest as he drops samples from Florence and the Machine, Lykke Li, Justice, Gotye, Red Hot Chile Peppers, Rihanna ("Diamond" is some sort of vicious earworm) REM, and Adele. We are singing. We are setting fire to the rain.
6:55pm: From the chatroom: "I DON'T BELIEVE MY EARS! I JUST TOOK SOME MOLLY!" This set is peaking. The synth siren rises as the crowd yells stuff: "I want to get laid tonight!" "Follow me on Twitter!" "I AM FREAKING OOOOUUUUUUUTTTTT!"
7:00pm: Weermets ends his set and with it the festival closes. We are sweaty and mildly buzzed. We take off the tutu and throw ourself on the couch. Online raving is weird, but it's also really convenient.
