American kids are really crazy. We don't party like the rest of them, because we party way harder.
"Especially now in the States, 'cause electronic music is blowing up like huge! And these kids go nuts about electronic music. So we're just trying to create a concept with everybody like, y'know, get wild about electronic music and just have fun."
That's what young rising-star Danny Avila has to say about the upcoming Generation Wild tour, inspired by the notion that this group of party kids is doing something special, and it's coming to get things poppin' in Miami on Thursday, February 14, at LIV.
But it's not just a one-man show. Avila is hitting the road with his very good buddy and elder party role-model Deniz Koyu, and they'll both be joined by wild upstarts dBerrie and Mikael Weermets.
"Everything is getting bigger in the states," said Koyu, who couldn't hide the excitement in his voice. "Twenty shows in twenty five days. And then we also have photographer Kirill, maybe you know him. He's doing all these really crazy pictures of especially crazy girls, of wild parties."
If anyone can take a wild party and bring it to the next level, it's Kirill Was Here. The New York City-based party paparazzo is famous for his champagne facials. That's exactly what it sounds like. He splashes the open, waiting mouths of young women with champagne, and catches them with their gaping mouths full like it's, well, you get it.
"He's coming with us, and I'm super scared," Avila said laughing. "I think I'm going to take like three weeks off after this tour probably. It's going to be crazy. You can imagine."
Good luck to the guys as they try to get any sleep. This journey will take them to 20 different shows in 25 days, and they're making the whole trip on a giant bus. Of course, what happens on the bus, stays on the bus.
"I think at the end of the tour I will have lots of stories, definitely."
This round of crazy dates sticks mostly to the east coast of the States and goes a bit into Canada, but don't fret all you left-out revelers. "Generation Wild" is only just getting started.
"Of course, we're going to continue with the concept of Generation Wild. It's not going to be just the one tour and then it's done," Koyu promised. "We're actually continuing with it and taking it also to Europe and also we will have like a Generation Tour part two in America, and then we are going to do it on the West Coast."
But of course, it's something special to be there at the beginning, and with this crazy crowd of energetic DJs and one serious hype-man, any real party kid will have to come out and show "Generation Wild" just what they're made of.
"Champagne facials and everything that's a bit nasty," Koyu said. "That's basically the idea of this tour, to go really wild and party hard. We are bringing the music, and it will be a special show."
"You can expect four DJ sets full of energy and a hell of a crazy photographer who is Kirill Was Here, doing all that champagne shit," Avila said. "We're definitely going to put our hearts and souls in it to make it a super night that everyone can remember."
