On October 31st, 2014, The Glitch Mob performed at the Electric Factory’s annual Halloween event in Philadelphia. The doors opened at 7:30pm. Chrome Sparks, the first opening act, took the stage at 8:30, and The M Machine took over at 10:00.
At 11:00, The Glitch Mob finally appeared. The three members, edIT, Ooah, and Boreta, stood elevated in front of the audience. Strobe lights flashed and fog filtered through the audience as the bass pulsing through the building gained intensity.
The build-up to the band’s first song of the night lasted almost ten minutes. Just as it started becoming repetitive and annoying the blast of music came. It shook the entire place, vibrated the bones of the audience
The lights of the screen on stage came up, displaying images of geometric shapes, all similar to the band’s logo, moving around in sync with the strobes.
The Glitch Mob puts on a show unlike any other group. Their use of visuals enhanced the experience, keeping the eyes of the audience fixed on the stage. The pumping bass entrances you so much that the lack of personal space becomes irrelevant. Any opportunity to see The Glitch Mob live should not be missed.
