Spirikal’s bottom line: If you haven’t been to one of these after hours shows, then you’re missing out on one of the best dance parties in the city.

Great DJs, incredible light shows, asteroids and booze, this monthly show gives it all in beautiful surroundings. It’s no surprise that this show always sells out.

Review: Already suffering from lack of sleep, I turned up anyway with my friend Ian to check out Rich Medina and DJ Spinna.

In comparison to last month’s show, this one was by far better with tons more house, disco, funk, reggae and R&B – you know, the good stuff.

Throughout the night, Spinna and Media kept trading places in a beautifully balanced dual-DJ set. The lighting was also spot on. Whether on the ceiling or behind the turntables, it really complimented everything.

Mad scientist? One of light show team. Yes, that’s a camera on his head!

Honestly, it was as good as that, and I’d go far enough to say that this was one of the best DJ concerts I had been to in a long time.

Packed house. The event sold out

What I also like about One Step Beyond is the fact that you can tour the planetarium, especially when you get there early. The accoustics are phenomenal, and maybe one day, they’ll have a live band perform here.

If you want to check out the fun next month, look for my preview, and don’t forget to buy your tickets asap.
