Photo Recap: Disclosure at the Music Experiment 2.0 in Boston – 8/7

The Giant Step produced Music Experiment 2.0 series, presented by MTV Iggy and Intel, made its way to Boston last night with electronic duo Disclosure. The second show, following Empire of the Sun‘s amazing New York City performance, once again hit capacity with hundreds of fans dressed in black for the “White Noise” theme at Cyclorama at Boston Center for the Arts. They were lined up to get their face’s painted Disclosure style while opening DJ Kidnap Kid helped set the mood. Disclosure played through multiple tracks from their debut release, Settle, with special guest Sam Smith hopping onstage for “Latch.”

Disclosure’s set was live streamed around the globe and will air on Palladia music network at a later date. Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming ME 2.0 shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Nashville, and be sure to check out the series’ online hub at www.musicexperiment.com. Photo credit: MTV/Iggy

“By the time Dirty Dozen took the stage around 4 p.m., the crowd at the Ghost Room had devolved into a cauldron of beer-drinking, hoo-rawing, handkerchief-waving, dirty-bop belly-rubbing, hoarse, sweaty humanity…” – Statesman
