Australian electronic production duo Flight Facilities landed at The Regency Ballroom on the only Bay Area stop of their North American “Down to Earth” tour last week for Noise Pop 2015. Transforming the venue into an aeronautic disco, these two flyboys brought the house down with help from tourmate Touch Sensitive and Owl Eyes (aka Brooke Addamo).

Pumping through a showcase of their club-banging singles and a majority of the duo’s 2014 studio album, Flight Facilities kept the audience moving and surprisingly enthusiastic for a packed house on a Tuesday night. Beyond electrifying the dance floor with live remixes of crowd favorites “Crave You” and “Clair De Lune,” highlights of the night included Owl Eyes performing “Heart Attack” amongst several other vocal tracks in person and Touch Sensitive joining the whole crew on stage for a rousing rendition of Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You” to close the night.

Both Touch Sensitive and Flight Facilities have rocked several of the Bay Area’s venues with DJ sets and live performances over the past year, promoting their debut albums as labelmates on Future Classic Records. Without question, both acts on this bill would have been equally capable of throwing a raging party at any mid-size venue, warehouse or club in SF on a weekend night.

So, for Noisepop 2015 to consider booking this lineup on a “school night” at a venue with a max capacity of 1,424 people was a pretty bold call. Subsequently though, it was also one that paid off in easily the largest dance party of the festival. Selling out and tossing aside attendee’s inhibitions for the chance to take flight with their fellow weekday warriors, the combo and impressive live collaboration of Touch Sensitive and Flight Facilities with special guest Owl Eyes undoubtedly made for a special night at Noise Pop 2015.
