Who ever wants to go home when the music stops at 2 a.m.? Most grudgingly drag there feet through the front door, not ready to step back onto the street and regain their sense of reality.
The good news is, that doesn’t always have to be the case. Markus Schulz will play an extended set next Saturday, February 28 at Monarch Theatre in Downtown Phoenix.
Rarely do you hear about an artist willing to play after hours, especially someone with the prestige of Markus Schulz, who constantly tours around the world playing at the biggest festivals on the planet. To top it off, Monarch Theatre is known for its intimate, electric setting, perfect for a long night with some feel good music.
The show starts at 9 p.m., though I’m guessing he wont even consider going on ‘til midnight, but once he is, who knows how long he will crank out the trance music he is so well know for. He has been all over the Top 100 DJ Magazine DJ list for years, and currently hails from Miami, Florida. Surprisingly enough, he was a local for some time and held residence at The Works in Downtown Phoenix for seven years in his early days, where he really developed his style.
Rumor has it that there will be an after party, continuing from his extended set, which means he could officially end his show around 5 a.m. or 6 a.m., and there might still be an after party! Sounds like Red Bull will be making higher than average profit margins that night. We’re half expecting the after party to be after hours set with pancakes, eggs and something soft to lay on.
We would recommend a solid nap before going out—energy drinks work, but not for eight hours of dancing. Let the bass thumps and trance melodies lift you to another realm. See you there!
