It’s one of the greatest feelings ever walking up to a warehouse and hearing (almost feeling) pulsing Techno beats within the distance. Minimal Effort had it on lock and this year’s Halloween edition, All Hallows Eve, was one for the books.
Claptone’s reimagined stage takeover was indoors and had an endless wave of lazers over you the entire time you were present. The place was a party upon arrival and you could tell everyone was having a great time, no questions asked. From MK to Dusky and back, the hi-hats were rolling and the party showed no signs of stopping. There’s just something about the vibe that M.E. is able to curate that is unmatched by any other underground promoter you will find in Los Angeles. Challenge me on that.
I have to say that it was refreshing to bask in an ambiance that was very much mature and not drowning in “plur” vibes. Every single event that happened that weekend within LA county had banger acts in abundance and that’s yet another reason why this show was one that shined above the rest. That is of course unless you feel like the banger acts are those within the realms of Behrouz, Brodinski, and Lee Burridge to name a few. If thats the case, then this was a banger of a night.
Now, with the vibes through the roof and the ambiance just perfect, the underground scene comes with the territory of overcoming hurdles, and sometimes you just can’t overcome them all. Kudos to Minimal Effort for keeping it real and transparent with everything that happened last Saturday night.
We want to address what occurred on Saturday night at Minimal Effort: All Hallow's Eve. Firstly we know and understand…
With that being said, it is not uncommon for underground promoters to face these kind of situations and you have to keep in mind the most of the time it is out of their control. They handled it like any professional organization would, and that’s really all there is to it.
On another note, Minimal NYE has already been announced and it’s safe to say that you will catch us there as well. RSVP on FB more info HERE!
