@mikeprevatt: 3am and an EDM-free @MarqueeLV is packed. Hardly a club full of underground fiends, but this is the crowd @richiehawtin needs to reach.

@mike prevatt: I can't even get on the @MarqueeLV dancefloor for @richiehawtin. Not sure whether to be annoyed or impressed.

@mikeprevatt: 45 mins in and Hawtin has gone from techno-ish house to house-ish techno. When the groove slinks back in, the foam glowsticks come back up.

@mikeprevatt: No, really, a nightclub is a perfectly reasonable place to FaceTime your girlfriend. It's a shame you're not using your iPad.

@mikeprevatt: Distracted dancefloor perks up here. "@rhawtin_live: is now playing: Mario, Doorly - Wait Until The Morning Feat Mario (Original Mix).”

@mikeprevatt: Dancefloor is awfully rambunctious for music this minimal. Also annoying: guy near me wearing the Indian headdress.

@mikeprevatt: Rambunctiousness aside, this is the first real dancing on a Vegas megaclub dancefloor I have seen in a long time. Not a whoop-n-jump group.

@mikeprevatt: .@richiehawtin looks like he's having fun at @MarqueeLV. So does still-busy club. This one's a win.

@mikeprevatt: After 2.5 hrs, and w/ 3 writeups and day 2 of a music festival ahead today, I'm headed home. Great showing by @richiehawtin & @MarqueeLV.

@NickyRubenstein: marquee felt like twilo or the soundfactory tonight, great music was flowing this evening, and I feel like its [sic] just the start.
