Phoenix was visited by Space Jesus on the Ninja Nation tour along with Datsik, Riot 10 and Carbin. The night was massively sold out. The facebook event page was full of people searching for anyone with an extra ticket, and the line of hopefuls waiting outside of the box office on the night of the show stretched on for the majority of the block.
Space Jesus, aka Jasha Tull, has had a meteoric rise recently and has become a common name on festival lineups over the last few years and is only continuing to gain recognition for his galactic level production.
The majority of his visual effects were restricted to the ever-changing screen behind his gear while the spots and strobes were kept pretty basic but extremely visually appealing. It was really common to see contrasting colors split on either side of the stage and above the screen. I found myself just getting distracted and watching the lights from the observation deck, aka the mezzanine, on multiple occasions.
The amount of energy that exuded from behind that table was out of this world. During the time I spent walking the very limited space that the enormous crowd was not occupying I did not see a single earthling who did not appear to be having the time of their life.
