The packed late-night/early morning crowd roared as Jasha Tull, better known as Space Jesus, made his way onto the Other Stage at Bonnaroo well past midnight early Friday morning. As the long brown-haired, Brooklyn-based EDM producer got his set going, the constant buzz of the crowd quieted.
Then the bass dropped.
Then everyone lost their minds.
Between the flashing lights, the trippy visuals and the mixture of electronic and hip-hop beats, it was clearly meant to be a definitive, memorable show.
Signs, flags and beach balls flying to and fro punctuated the sea of fans. Upon the star attraction’s entrance, the tone was set by his informing the crowd he was opening with some meditation. He’s named Space Jesus, after all.
After that, it was time to dance.
