I Watched Four Hours of Brony EDM So You Don't Have to
00:30:05 DJ Midli is up next. He tries to show he's serious about things by dramatically unzipping his "Keep Calm and Brony On" hoodie. When the beat drops he starts stomping/dancing around, causing another DJ moving equipment behind him to fall right over. I cheered the first time I watched it, mostly because I thought he actually flat out hit the dude in his excitement.
You know the situation is serious because the guy moving equipment who didn't wipe out removes his gas mask to check on his fallen Brony brother.
00:32:15 Midli makes a good case that "overexcited Brony dance music lover" would make an awesome wrestling gimmick.
00:38:00 Rather than talk about how awful the songs being played are, I've spent the last five minutes staring at the one strobe light they have onstage. I hope they consider raising the light budget next year.
00:47:00 "Fiesta Equestria" isn't a phrase that really lends itself to call-and-response chanting, but Midli gives it his best shot.
00:53:30 In the middle of thanking the Texas crowd and inviting them back to his homeland of Canada, someone up and kills the mic on Midli. We're two-for-two on DJs not getting to speak their mind.
00:54:45 The MC lets us know that we're not even close to being done. That's not reassuring at all.
00:55:30 Oh, hey, it's that guy who ate it during Midli's set, and he fancies himself a singer. And holy shit guy, it's awful. Like... just wow. That he's singing a song about a singing horse just takes it away from the land of awkward in to the realm of semi-creepy.
01:02:30 This is the second time (IN LESS THAN HOUR MIND YOU) that someone has played that "Twilightlicious" sample, which I can only assume is the "Levels" of the Brony EDM scene.
01:03:45 They literally kill the song so that Mike, one of the show's organizers, can tell people to stop throwing glow sticks. Apparently some little kids got hit, and that's a liability issue. Oh the bromanity.
01:21:00 Seventh Element, to my surprise, is not that bad. Yeah, he's got awful dance moves, but so does everyone else that's been onstage, and at least his music is listenable. At this point I'll take what I can get.
01:28:45 Camera guy decides that it's creepy time and zooms in on a couple of folks who are dancing with their asses to the camera. Not necessary, bro(ny). Not necessary at all.
01:32:00 Tetsuo is back onstage and now he's wearing two pairs of glasses. Coolest dude in the room.
01:35:00 The trend of DJs not being able to use microphones continues. This may be my favorite part of brony EDM culture.
