Hotel Congress Terrace Stage

We started off the night with rising Tucson star Lando Chill, who was accompanied by his backing band of Bassist Chris "Deep Greasy" B and synth/producer wonder kid Lasso Sonyx. Lando has been gaining a very steady following in the last year in tucson, an entire section of the crowd was dedicated to his cadre of female groupies who follow him around the town to different shows and parties. Lando is becoming a relatively famous personality on the streets of the 520, centrally due to his showmanship and stage presence, which were abundant tonight.

The blistering summer heat means nothing to EDM fans in Arizona, which is why the best established and up-and-coming artists easily sell out a Phoenix venue. It's the only place I can imagine where an Aussie like What So Not wears swim trunks to perform and the venue pays its rent solely on water sales. But alas, we're addicted to the bass and the lights--and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Emily and Olivia chatted with two members of Chicago rock band Twin Peaks, Clay and Cadien, before their gig at Club Congress. They discussed a plethora of shit, from the resurrection of a certain familiarly-named tv show to *literal* shit.

Emily Beiser: Did you guys see the Twin Peaks sign on your way here?

Have you ever seen fifteen different pairs of Rick and Mortys wandering a convention floor? Walked by dozens of booths selling Pikachu stuffed animals and one selling decorative athletic cups? Saturday of 2017's Phoenix ComiCon was laden with costumed, hyped-up people whose costumes rivaled those of Hollywood's finest designers. One woman told me that she "had a costume on this morning, went back to [her] hotel room at 2, and changed into another costume for the rest of the day," keeping up this routine for the three days she attended.
