It was nearly 12:30 before RedFoo, one half of crunk party rock group LMFAO, took stage at Sensu for his headlining performance at Indy's newest swanky nightspot. The show was billed accurately; the majority of the set consisted of RedFoo in the role of DJ, occasionally taking the mic to spit a few lines for his rowdy listener. As if to get it out of everyone’s system, RedFoo opened with “I’m In Miami Bitch”, of course replacing “Miami” with “Naptown”, followed by a combination of familiar club bangers (David Guetta, Black Eyed Peas, Pitbull, et al.) and less-recognizable electro beats. Furthermore, we heard two new LMFAO songs that RedFoo claimed no one had heard yet-though I wonder if he says that to all his audiences on the tour.
DJ RedFoo’s Party Rock Crew did a great job at doing what you would expect a group operating under that name would do. Leader of the pack, hype-man Q, maintained a spot at the front of the stage for most of the night, dazzling on-lookers with his glitzed out stunna shades, T-shirt, and shoes. One of his primary job duties in this coveted position (aside from hyphy dancing and relentless stage antics) was dispensing shots of vodka directly from the bottle into the mouths of front-row audience members. Props for the night included ignited sparklers, showers of confetti, a fog machine gun, and even a vodka tunnel- not to be mistaken for a beer bong as I did in a pre-performance tweet.
Nearing the end of the night, RedFoo bestowed champagne shower upon the crowd that instantly turned a fragrant and attractive audience of men and women into a stinky and sticky hot mess. The show ended in a series of familiar LMFAO songs including “I Am Not A Whore”, another run at “I’m In Miami”, and of course “Shots! Shots! Shots!”
