The last time I’ve attended a Slow Magic show was at Central SAPC (now closed) in 2012, after was released; though he was a headliner, he was still a small act.  At the time, you could walk through the venue without running into anyone; I even bought my shirt directly from him.  I’ve kept up with Slow Magic, and have noticed his fan base expanding, but I had no idea to what extent.  Fast forward two years; Slow Magic is on an North American tour for his second album How to Run Away, and apparently, creating a sauna at The Roxy.  The crowd was beyond entertained, moving unanimously on Slow Magic’s hits “Girls,” “On Yr Side,” and “Corvette Cassette.”  They recorded video on Vine (or whatever) and danced with what space was available; they knew they experienced something special.   Daktyl and Kodak to Graph opened for Slow Magic; The Do Lab and Goldenvoice did an amazing job with these openers, they encapsulate the experimental electronic quality of Slow Magic, but with their own tweak that made the whole night an enjoyable evolution of the set before.  Everyone was enchanted; walking through the crowd I could perceive the genuine festive nature that encompassed the entire night.  Check out Slow Magic on the rest of his North American tour.
