Life in Color

The inevitable, though not unwelcome, evolution of electronic music and rave culture over the past two-plus decades has witnessed the arrival of romanticized, word of mouth all-nighters—that helped define ’90s subculture—into the mass-marketed festivals and easily accessible arenas of today. Asserting itself as the “world’s largest paint party,” Life in Color (formerly Dayglow) is an elaborate, world-touring production that often incorporates aerial artists, costumed dancers, fire shows and video wall imagery into its most essential non-auditory element (no, not drugs): cannon that splatter blasts of glowing neon paint onto a sea of dancing bodies. The night features sets by English dubstep producer and DJ, RUSKO, and Two Fresh, with supporting acts Fullhaus and Will Weber. Doors open at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $36, or $67 for VIP.
