when my brother invited us to clozee‘s meow wolf debut, even though it was the week i got back from lightning in a bottle, i couldn’t say no. clozee is an artist i’ve been very drawn to for a few years now and i was so stoked to be able to see her perform at this world-renowned venue. i think this was my third time seeing her perform and i was just as excited as the first. also thrilled to see that one of my favorite producers, axel thesleff, was opening for her too. as if this wasn’t already a recipe for an incredible time,
we booked an
we quickly realized that we didn’t have much time before the show, and began to get ourselves together.
when you enter the exhibit there’s really no describing the experience of exploring what meow wolf has to offer. it’s one of those “you have to experience it for yourself” kind of things. all
axel opened up for clozee and blew me away. it’s always so cool to see someone you creatively admire over the internet IN REAL LIFE. the stage is kind of centered in the museum (i think? lol) with the ability to watch from above and from other rooms within the main corridor as well. we secured a spot at the front right of the stage, pretty early on in the show, and were able to hold it down and have enough space to dance our asses off. completely taken back by all the art, it was beyond stimulating to watch these artists perform in this space. there were a few moments we stepped upstairs to witness it from the balconies. and holy shizz i think it’s safe to say that there is absolutely no shortage of ambiance, stimulation, and curiosity to draw from this magical place.
when we returned the next day to scope it out properly, we booked our tickets online in advance here (cost $29). this is definitely essential to do, otherwise, you probably won’t be able to get in the day of. highly recommend planning ahead and saving some money by booking online. you won’t be surprised to find out how much time you can actually pass in there. it’s not totally out of scope to say that you could spend an entire day in the house of eternal return. it’s an easy place to get lost in- both physically and mentally. meow wolf will have you questioning the laws of gravity, your perception of creating, and you will most likely lose your sense of direction. a sacred place of expression that is not to go unrecognized. thank you meow wolf,
