What: Emengy Presents An Audio/Visual Exhibition
Where: Phoenix Lounge in Abbotsford, BC
When: January 23, 2015
On January 23, 2015, I was able to attend an event held by Emengy at Phoenix Lounge in Abbotsford, British Columbia. For Emengy Presents An Audio/Visual Exhibition, three electronic artists were featured. From 8-10, DJ Coco opened up the musical content. From 10-11:30, Mully took over. Finally, Zarise played until closing. Additionally, live saxophonist Innate played.
Not only did the event showcase the audio artists, but there were visual artists showcased as well. There were numerous glow in the dark paintings around the venue. There were live paintings being produced and body painting.
As I am getting more into electronic music, it is awesome to be able to go to more events with EDM music. I liked being able to stay locally yet still have a lot of fun. The vibe created was a cool environment to be in because you were able to simply hang out with friends, have conversations, listen to awesome beats, and look at the artwork. It was a fun night featuring so many talented artists!
If you are around the Fraser Valley, there is not as much to do as Vancouver. However, the events hosted by Emengy counter that. It provides an increased nightlife presence – especially in regards to EDM. If you are in or around the area, I would definitely recommend going out to one of the upcoming events!
