Concert Report: Armin Van Buuren (Echostage Washington)

Echostage, Washington DC's new mega-club!
Arrived in the club to find DJ Roberto Gonzalez (USA) in the booth.
The crowd in this massive but brilliantly done venue was still light at this point.

 Gonzalez is well-known around Washington. He closed for Above & Beyond (GB) in July! His set was a mix of Progressive House and Trance.

It got more exciting when DJ Ruben De Ronde (NL) came on at 11PM!
The crowd was building.
And if you didn't arrive early, you were somewhere back there!
De Ronde's set mixed both vocal and non-vocal Trance selections!
And the club's lighting effects were deployed while he was playing too!
And at 12:30AM this morning, there he was!
Armin Van Buuren (NL)!
In the world of Trance, Armin is God!
Thanking Washington for coming out!
Club was packed to the rafters!
Predominately young, Trance has made a huge comeback!
Confetti explosions!
Famous for his long-running worldwide weekly radio show, "A State of Trance".
I was disappointed when I saw him in Toronto in January, but last night he was right on point!
Also a mix of vocal and non-vocal songs, his selections included some of his well-known tracks.
Going to see a few more great DJ's tonight at The Reunion in Orlando!
And at Echostage in the District last night, a good time was had by all!
