I’ve been too emotionally drained for way too long now
I’m literally so annoying about this and i wish i could go to worlds tour again like fuck lmao
porter robinson’s worlds tour was really something that was beyond amazing.tbh i wanted to get tickets for a while because of lemaitre but i ended up getting free tickets through a friend a couple days before and i almost died of happiness. i started to actually listen to his album and songs that weren’t language and lionhearted and was the only thing i listened to for a couple days before the show to really get in tune with his music. after the 2nd run through, i realized i actually really loved the songs and the way each song made me picture a different fantasy worlds that i used to imagine when i was younger
"Divinity" was like a steampunk techno utopia type of vibe in a coastal area
"Sad Machine" reminded me of that little television robot thingy from adventure time . it just reminded me of the period of newfound happiness in someone after a period of depression/break up/ end of a friendship thingy, which i honestly loved.
"Years of War" was another steampunk but medieval world that kinda reminded me of flyff, which i logged thousands of hours on that game couple years ago
"Flicker" was just anime, like happy anime type vibe which was kinda nice because I’m low-key obsessed with anime
"Polygon Dust" was just heaven and all i focused on was a winter world with lemaitre’s symbol everywhere because i also fucking love lemaitre that i saw them 3 times this summer
"Hear the Bells" gave me an image of a winter wonderland that just ended a long war
"Lionhearted" was like a prep for battle, and is one of the songs i put on repeat when i do workout
and “Sea of Voices, Fellow Feeling, and Goodbye to a World” was just like sad goodbye vibes. Like how after an amazing weekend then knowing that the next day is like a monday type of vibe
his actual live performances was just amazing, i really did feel like i was in those worlds i pictured. there were people doing coke next to me and the people i went with were mad/upset they weren’t fucked up and that was when i realized i really didn’t need that to enjoy his show. yea it would’ve been trippy af with the crazy visuals and stuff, but i was really in love with the whole experience. it was definitely worth the drive to pomona and back (total of like 120 miles) and i loved every second of the show. when “goodbye to a world play” i was actually really sad because it marked the end of one of the best shows I’ve ever experienced. i love the whole “this is not a rave” concept he held for it because it wasn’t. it really did feel like i was on a journey through different worlds, especially with the old school game sounds. it felt like my late childhood’s imagination came to life and yeaaa. if you ever get a chance please go see porter’s show because it truly was one of the best experiences I’ve had so far.
tbh im also really surprised if you made it this far because its like 4:25am and I’m the worst writer ever and its 2-3 days after the show and I’m still in post concert depression mode and yea
I find it really funny how I thought you were actually an decent human
Porter Robinson left me speechless
