Last Saturday David and I attended the Skills POP party at Cow Palace....we had a blast with 17,000+ of our closest friends (ha ha - yikes it was crazy in there!) We had such a great time dancing and seeing old friends, but the venue was so packed it was like hearding cattle trying to get through the hallways. Seriously, it was like a Japanese subway during rush hour traffic! So we stuck to the House room & Breaks room most of the night where there was more open space to dance - although we did venture into the main Trance room to check out Deep Voices and then Tiesto!
But at approximately 1am the entire venue went black - massive power outage!!!
Imagine an intense, crazy, pumping dance party with thousands upon thousands of people, 5 rooms of music, lazers, lights and massive sound systems - and in the blink of an eye, the power completely dies - we were literally left in the dark - no sound, no lights....nothing but the emergency lighting in the hallways. It was crazy.....!!
Thanks goodness we got out of the venue and back to our car pretty quickly (well once security starated kicking people out, we ran about 1/4 of a mile through the parking lot to our car and then jetted out of there as fast as we could!) I can't even imagine how long it must have taken some people to get out of the venue and then out of that huge parking lot - hours probably....sheesh.
But overall it was a great night! Check out some video footage that I found on You Tube that gives you a sense of how CRAZY yet AMAZING this party was! ;)
