Under The Gun sent photographer, Corbin Alvae, to the Get Wet Live Tour at the Royal Oak Music Theatre in Royal Oak, MI.
My ears are currently still ringing while I write this. So I decided to go and enter the world of EDM. With this being my first time covering one of these events, I had absolutely no idea what to expect. I did some research beforehand to look and see what I was about to get myself into, and let me tell you, I’ve never seen so many bodies jump and move all at once, minus being at Warped Tour. The ‘Get Wet Live Tour’ was filled with tons of talent, lots of bass, and so many lights! I thought I was gonna have a seizure, but I survived. So here’s how my night went.
The tour itself kicked off with an individual who is known as Candyland. Immediately once I saw that fro, I knew that this was about to be awesome. Super entertaining and her tracks hit hard to the point I thought I was gonna fall over. I really dug how she mixed in the classics like “Get Low” by Lil Jon and “Hypnotize” by Notorious B.I.G. Candyland definitely knew how to kick things off!
Next up we had another individual by the name of Seven Lions. Don’t underestimate this artist. Just because he doesn’t talk during his set, his tracks bump! Seven Lions really followed up to keep the Royal Oak crowd hyped, just as Candyland did. Definitely was not disappointed with this performance. Catch him when he’s in your town!
Now to the act of the night, the one and only, Krewella. If you didn’t know this before, the trio is made up of sisters Jahan and Yasmine and their fabulous hype man / producer, Rain Man. I’ve been pretty into Krewella for a bit now, so I was excited to finally see them live. As soon as those lights went down and “the volcano” lit up, the venue just filled with noise from the crowd. Royal Oak was definitely ready to “get wet” with the Krew. The trio performed a mix of a bunch of amazing tracks, some off their newest album, Get Wet, and some off their EP, Play Hard. Throughout their performance, the amount of energy and the bass these tracks were putting out, it got to the point where I thought my heart was gonna explode. Krewella is a group that has a fun and energetic performance that’s capable of entertaining anyone, anywhere, anytime. Don’t miss them when they roll through your city.
The ‘Get Wet Live tour’ was something new for me to experience and I definitely had an excellent time watching all three of these super talented EDM artists.
