Rob Zombie’s Great American Nightmare is everything you’d expect from the Master of Weird himself; roaming firespitters, ogres with chainsaws, cracked out clowns, and that’s what you get from just walking around the venue. Once you gather enough courage to hit the horror mazes you are literally greeted with darkness in the form of a execution style veil over your face and your journey begins. Once your face covering is removed, you witness some of the most cutting edge 3-D visuals, roaming monsters as well as mechanical horror contraptions. The maze takes your ability to decipher reality from unreal and makes for a truly suspenseful voyage. if it so happens that being scared sh*tless doesn’t quite fit your preferences, you can still have an electrifying time in the makeshift concert hall at the Fairplex. This past weekend we were blessed with 3 solid dj sets that provided the party to accompany the horror. We kicked off the night serenaded by the Daft Punk tribute done by One More Time, simply put this set was nothing short of mesmerizing, absolutely murdered the opening hours of the night. Following up the nostalgic initial set, DIRTYLOUD, came out for the follow-up and gave us no reason to doubt why he is one of Brazil’s most talented musical exports (keep reading for exclusive arntrela interview after his Friday performance). DJ Blend capped off the night with a set that validated his headlining position complete with his own go-go’s, t-shirt guns and liquid ice, he succeeded in establishing an all out rave at the Fairplex. Not to be forgotten, were the variety of booths set up, including the heavily growing G-Pen brand, doing their best getting everyone on the vape life, a production quality green screen photo booth that simulates murder scenes starring you and your friends as well of plenty of Rob Zombie and classic band merch were readily on hand at their own respective booths. definitely worth the trek to Pomona, also not a bad idea to stop by the neighboring Oktoberfest festival before or after you commit to the total Rob Zombie experience. 2 thumbs up.
