Throwing back a $16.00 drink doesn’t really give one the feeling of success, but throwing back a drink while living in a state that can nab acts like Opiuo three times a year does.
Kiwi Oscar Davey-Wraight dropped in to Denver’s Fillmore auditorium on Friday, and brought with him an intense display illumination. With a stage background of what must have been a million lights, the venue stayed lit for hours as the funky bass syrup spilled out all over the dancing heads of glitch fanatics. With a stacked opening lineup of Ex Mag, Eliot Lipp, Minnesota and Russ Liquid joining his set, Opiuo set a high bar for incoming EDM shows to Denver.
Before the arms-waving-feet-stomping-neck-bobbing show got started, Opiuo met with 303 Magazine to talk his huge tour, new release Omniversal and who he calls when he wants to talk to a real celebrity.
