Think of the smallest venue that you know, now take half of that, and maybe half of that. Welcome to the Larimer Lounge. This quaint venue sat in the back of a bar behind a black curtain that probably was only put up during shows. The bar itself was unassuming and walking into the “venue” the intimacy of the lounge was immediately apparent. IT was the perfect venue for Kap Slap to give his fans an intimate private concert. It really felt as though we had tickets to some exclusive party where we were personally invited. I loved it.
Kap Slap was probably playing the smallest gig of his career, but really, he couldn’t have looked any happier. Despite the nature of the venue, Kap Slap dutifully ducked his tall frame under the doorway and made his way to the decks (just a table with a cloth thrown on top). With the lighting in the room, you could see everyone’s face and recognize them from one hour to the next. The room wasn’t shoulder to shoulder, but each person seemed to occupy their own little bubble all around the dance floor. Getting straight into his set, Kap Slap warmed the crowd with plenty of mashups of favorite pop songs and the slick electronic rhythms Kap Slap is known for.
The room lit up when “Rewind” was announced, Kap Slap’s latest original track. Mixing seamlessly from one remix, to the next original, to a number of gorgeous mashups, Kap Slap wove the room into a party complete with everyone venturing on stage. As you can see in the pictures below, Kap Slap was more than happy to see everyone on stage, take their phone and snap a picture or two, and share a drink with fans in the front row. While easily the smallest show I have ever been to, Kap Slap threw down a festival set in such an intimate setting, it was more fun than I could have possibly imagined.
