If you have been to Miami since December and you haven’t been to Story Nightclub, you really haven’t been to Miami. Once known as “Amnesia”, Story is the newest upscale nightclub, almost like LIVs bigger and better older sister. Not just the venue itself, but the people, the production, the layout, are all absolutely breathtaking.
Although I’ve been to Story more times than I can count, there is nothing better than seeing one of your favorite artists, at your favorite club, during WMC. Not only were a large majority of other artists in attendance for this event, but Leonardo Dicaprio, Shaquille O’neal and Michael Phelps all had purchased tables as well. The amount of diverse talent under one roof was incredible.
Music wise, the lineup for this night was impeccable. Brodinski, Gesaffelstien, Crookers, Jack Beats, Alvin Risk, and Alex Metric all played hour long sets with Skrillex as the main headliner. Crookers surprised me the most, playing quite a few different genres of music that you wouldn’t expect to hear in an upscale Miami club, but kept the crowd hooked the entire time. However, the show was and always will be, stolen by Skrillex.
Playing all the original songs, some as new edits, some as new remixes, Skrillex dropped everything from Weekends, to trap, to closing with his forever famous, Cinema, alongside Benny Benassi himself. I don’t think I could describe the expressions on the crowds faces even if I wanted to.
