Nerdtron Retrospect

On Friday, March 25, Nerdtron & Re:Animated Productions teamed up for a two-room duo at Sokol Underground via the theme of Tranceformers. I heard positive things about the party, but more importantly, I keep hearing how the Nerdtron events are creating and sustaining a new pool of people. In fact, Chris Massara, aka Masaris, mentioned it reminded him of an old-school raver scene — the kind you might see in Denver. And with pictures of kids wearing candy like the one below, I'd save "rave" is a safe word to use. 

When sub-cultures in Omaha's EDM scene come about, it's a sign that the scene is growing. Matt Warburton grabbed photos. Check them all here.

Future Events

Exhale / March 31 / O Dining

O Dining in the Old Market is in the process of getting together a full-on night club atmosphere together alongside their dinner thing. Exhale is a nightlife industry party that'll be on a monthly basis. Kobrakyle is DJing alongside HN artist Kaitlyn Maria Filippini, who's been doing quite a bit of live-violin-DJ collaboration lately.

Aaron Lee, Myth, Natron, Zak C / April 1 / Bar 415

Lots of old-school love going into this night. If you're interested in who was rocking the dance floors during Omaha's rave scene/post-rave era, then you'd do yourself well to come to this. Many old-school heads will be out.

Nerdtron Dance Party: NERDS gone Wild / April 1 / The Diamond

I'm really interested to hear how this one goes. I'm especially interested in this new venue. This party is a one-portion event aligned with the three-day Fashion in Detritus Art & Fashion Show by a new crew calling themselves EVENTgelical Productions. Not sure what to expect with this one, so check out the info here.

LOUD w/Sonic C / April 2 / Nomad Lounge

Saturday Masaris brings his LOUD party concept to Nomad Lounge with Sonic C from Dim Mak records — the label started by Steve Aoki. With a backing like Aoki, you know the kids got some electro bangers up his sleeve that will have the dance floor raging with sweaty fist pumping.
