Enduser cruised on in to Budapest to play a club called A38 which was the bottom deck of a boat (is that called the poop deck? I dunno) that was permanently docked on the Danube. Upstairs was the restaurant/lounge with some cool jazz playing and downstairs was the noisy electronic.
You might think that a venue like this would have a sub-standard sound system, but the exact opposite was the case. I’ve been to every fancy schmancy hoity toity club in Los Angeles and many of them have spent millions on their sound systems, and A38’s sounded better than all of ‘em. This place knocked off my feet.
Furthermore, the placed was packed with about 1000 crazy people dancing like it was the last night of their lives. Totally amazing. I went to an Enduser show a few years ago in Las Vegas which was on Cinco de Mayo which fell on a Saturday that year so you’d think that on a big party night in a big party town that the place would be rockin’. Not so. Not even close. I think about 10 people showed up, 2 of whom were my girlfriend and I who drove in from LA. Which do you think was the better show? Ya, these Europeans know how to do it right.
Enduser live at A38, Budapest, Hungary, 11 Dec 2009.
