It’s very rare that I see an EDM artist outside of a festival setting, and even more rare that I see an EDM artist in an indoor setting. Everything about Troyboi’s September 30th concert at the Danforth Music Hall (presented by Embrace) was new to me. As someone who tends to stick to rap concerts, with the few R&B concerts sprinkled in-between, I didn’t know what to expect. Joined by guest Louis Futon and Slumberjack prior to his set, the concert started on a high – but it wasn’t until the Bohemian Dub Orchestra and Troyboi’s dancers came out that the crowd really got amped.
In a collection of remixed songs, ridiculous lighting and visuals, and a few women floating from the ceiling, Troyboi, who spent equal amounts of time behind the tables as he did in front of the crowd, captivate every person that was in the room with ease. And for my first non-festival EDM concert, this set the bar high.
