Concert review: Doctor P at Grand Central

By Gabriel Sawich posted Oct 22, 2013 at 09:41 PM

The party didn't stop at Basslights, read about Gabe's take on the Grand Central after party here!

As the lights dimmed at Bayfront, still-hungry ravers
      descended upon the doorstep of Grand Central this Saturday.
      Starting off the night, Frost student Jimmy Duval played the
      crowd in and set the mood right. Dirtyloud then took to the
      stage, mixing a variety of current bass stylings and keeping
      the energy of the afterparty alive. Bassheads, unwearied from
      their two-day musical/spiritual adventure, prepared for the
      weekend's closing act, tapping into their seemingly
      bottomless reserves of energy.
Then, the Doctor took to the stage,
      delivering a communion of raw, aggressive sounds which
      elevated the spirits of all those present. We sipped from his
      cup of wobbling basslines and explosive two-step rhythms,
      greedily slurping down the bittersweet nectar of ugly synths
      and destructive drops. Almost immediately, a moshpit formed,
      and those courageous enough to enter the fray were rewarded
      with a cartharsis, a release from all their wordly troubles
      through the power of uninhibited eros. The Doctor continued to drop banger after banger, juxtaposing classic favorites like "I Can't Stop" and "Tetris" against popular crowd-pleasers such as Flosstradmus' "Original Don" remix and futuristic, bone-rattling beats. If Bassnectar and Prettylights were the main course of the evening, Doctor P was the dessert, closing out the night by dropping into "Sweet Shop", leaving our palates thoroughly satisfied as we left the rave behind, dreading the return to normalcy, the cleaning of such memorable carnage.
