Ultra Day 2 Redux: Boys Noize, Cut Copy, Empire of the Sun (and lots of photos!)

Ultra Music Festival Day 2
Bicentennial Park, Miami
March 26, 2011

It takes mind-body trickery to keep yourself from giving up a prime spot in the crowd for a trip to the toilet-paperless port-o-potties with stink so fresh it's literally sobering. But if the bladder gods were with you last night and you landed front and center at the live stage at Ultra Music Festival in time for Boys Noize, then you were as lucky as I was. And if you weren't, here's a recap of the mind-blowing performances I gladly watched for you -- it sure was a spectacle.  

Boys Noize 

This show, the first I saw at Ultra, set the stage for a hyper full-body workout. Boys Noize, the stage name for Alexander Ridha, a German music producer and DJ, smiled throughout his entire set, looking like the happiest DJ ever to grace Ultra's live stage. Jumping up and down and motioning with his arms that the crowd come along, he enjoyed his own music so much, it was impossible for his audience not to follow suit.
