Going back to school has put me, a relatively old guy, into a young guy world. Most of the time this is fine, but once in a while there is a cultural gap that makes me feel as though I am a British anthropologist studying the baffling mating habits of a small pygmy tribe in the dark heart of Africa. A prime example of this comes from the apparent slang terminology “party 2.0”. When I walk the halls and hang out near the commons, I hear this term everywhere. I still have no real concept of the proper context for it. It seems that a nice dinner can be “party 2.0” but so can a new shirt or a girl’s sexual prowess. All I do know about party 2.0 is that it makes me feel as up to date as a Sega Dreamcast. I have decided the only solution is to use the term as much as possible. Make it my own.
That being said, this song by Delorean is definitely “party 2.0”. It is sort of like a synth-hippy-rave jam out. I feel like you might hear it at a hemp bracelet making festival or at a topless Italian disco. Sometimes when I hear it, I “party 2.0” in my pants.
There is a live version from some “party 2.0” festival in Spain which has a pretty awesome light show. I also like that they have a live drummer not a machine drummer. You can find it here.
I like the recorded album version better though.
