Partygoers excitedly armed themselves with Tron themed t-shirts, customized glowing body art and ample libations. Kate kicked off the evening with a high energy DJ set featuring Bloody Beetroots’ remixes and Simian Mobile Disco’s “It’s the Beat.” Electronic music ruled the evening, and Daft Punk reigned supreme. The DJs kept a common theme through each set playing and remixing various Daft Punk tracks. As the night wore on and beer lubricated the dance floor our DJs really worked the crowd with hilarious yet bumping tracks like Duck Sauce’s “Barbra Streisand.”
Johnny Orr and DJ Coreyography finessed the crowd together taking turns teasing and tantalizing the dance floor with their on-point yet surprising selections. I’ll be the first to openly admit, I cut a rug to a funky remix of Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” after a few drinks. When all is said and done, the KDHX Tron benefit party was the best excuse this year to do the robot while supporting community radio.
