As the lights dimmed in the Electric Factory the crowd began chanting for [emuze]Dillon Francis[/emuze], and soon enough he made his appearance on stage. Starting the night with his ‘Some Chords‘ by [emuze]Deadmau5 [/emuze] remix, the 27 year-old producer/DJ immediately set the mood for what would be an unforgettable night.
As a college drop out who promised his parents a year of living with them to prove his producing abilities, Francis was finally noticed by Mad Decent creator, [emuze]Diplo[/emuze], due to his unique sound categorized as Moombahton. From there Diplo and Dillon collaborated and released ‘Que Que’ where he officially made a name for himself in the EDM scene. Dillon Francis has since traveled the world playing major music festivals such as Ultra, Coachella and Electric Zoo.
Along with the recent release of his first studio album, Money Sucks Friends Rule, Dillon Francis has hit the road for his latest North America Tour. This Wednesday, Francis made his seventh stop on tour at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia, PA. The show began with openers [emuze broken]Hoodboi[/emuze] and [emuze]TJR[/emuze] who definitely knew how to get the party started.
Whether you have seen Dillon Francis before on another tour or at a music festival, I can guarantee you that his Money Sucks Friends Rule Tour is a different experience. Francis dropped a countless number of classics throughout his set, from ‘Masta Blasta‘, ‘IDGAFOS‘ to his ‘Carried Away‘ remix. He even gave the crowd a bit of a new track he has been working on, on the road. But by far one of my favorite moments was when Dillon dropped [emuze]Porter Robinson[/emuze]’s ‘100% In The Bitch‘. From classics to hits from his newest album, the 27 year-old gave the crowd everything they wanted. Francis even closed the night with a nice “Fuck the Dallas Cowboys” and got every Eagle’s fan in the building going in on the chant.
Overall, I highly suggest checking out Dillon Francis when he makes a stop at your city. My only major complaint about the show was the number of young kids. If you are able to tolerate young crowds then it shouldn’t be a problem, but if you are not check to see if the venue has a separate bar area for those who are 21+.
For students at CU Boulder, tickets are still available for Dillon Francis at the 1st Bank Center on December 12.
