Friday night may have been blisteringly cold, but that didn’t stop electronic fans from storming Terminal 5 and grooving along to Mystery Skulls’ bouncing jams. The January 30th concert took place amid winter warnings on one of the chilliest nights in recent memory; one had to be almost… cold-hearted to not feel a tinge of sympathy for the miniskirt adorned girls stamping their feet and screaming at the bouncers to move the crowd more quickly.
Ah, just a tinge, though.
In any case, once everyone got through security and into the three floors of madness that is Terminal 5, the dancing began in earnest. Mystery Skulls, the nom de plume of electronic producer and multi-instrumentalist Luis Dubuc, blasted the audience from behind his DJ table, his silhouette bobbing dramatically as the lights shone from behind.
Mystery Skulls played through most of his 2014 debut LP, Forever, which included popular dance single “Ghost.” The song hit number 15 on the Billboard US Hot Dance/Electronic chart.
After about an hour of high energy dance music, Mystery Skulls surrendered the stage to headliner Cherub. Both musical groups appeared at Mercury Lounge for a couple of post-Terminal 5 DJ sets, but this writer, unfortunately, did not attend.
Something something “Too old for this shit” is probably the reason why. Don’t worry though. He spent so much time flailing his skinny elbows around and moving his body like a contortionist that any additional second of dancing would likely have resulted in his admittance into the nearest mental facility.
(We’re not entirely sure that last part is true, so don’t hold us to it.)
