Remember the good old days of rave when the only thing fluorescent was your glow stick? Todays youth arent content with a faint luminosity you have to keep in the freezer. They want to bathe in neon paint, which is why every stop on the DayGlow: The Fifth Element tour is completely sold out. What exactly happens at the worlds largest paint party? Electronic dance music-lovers dress in white, and then high-powered water guns shoot sticky pink and green goo onto the jumping, dancing, fist-pumping crowd.
At the Miami stop this Sunday at the Miami Beach Convention Center, Puerto Rican house virtuoso Robbie Rivera, along with David Solano and Willie Morales, will provide a tweaked-out frenzy of untz-untz noise. High priest of EDM Devil from Acapulco, a silver-painted rave beast with lasers beaming from his hands, will perform alongside Miami club kid and performance artist Sean WildChild. The party starts at 9 p.m., and we suggest you bring goggles. (Safety first, fun second.)
