Flume Flume Flume

img_0225This past weekend, thousands of people were graced by the magic that is Flume within the span of three nights at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Harley Straiten, his full name, began to make music at the young age of 13 all the way on the other side of the world in Australia. This was definitely noticeable by the way he seamlessly transitioned from one track to another making the entire set seem continuous. There are few artists that actually go the extra mile to make sure their show is appealing to both they eyes and ears. With every song he would drop, we would get a crazy laser show along with it. On the screen behind him, he had visuals of flowers and other objects that would evolve as the songs went on. At one point, he had an image of a demonic yet beautiful looking creature right behind him that had the whole crowd in awe. The Thursday night show I attended had a lively crowd, with enough space to be able to dance the night away with your friends. Based off what my friends told me about the other two shows, it seemed like it the show got better and fuller ever night.
