Rusko's show Tuesday night at Stereo Live was a highly-anticipated event for the Houston electronic-music community. Our own Taylor Moon covered the gig, and brought back reports of the dubstep star freaking the frick out onstage and lambasting the venue's sound engineer for what he saw as a piss-poor job.
All told, it seems like fans were into the show, even if Rusko was distracted by sound that was less than stellar and not up to his personal standards. Of course, the artist took to Twitter like all normal and coolheaded folks do to vent and complain about the situation.
And of course, someone was shooting video of Rusko walking to his tour bus amidst a full-tilt tantrum.

What do you think? Should he have been more professional, kept quiet and got the sound fixed, or was he correct in blowing up like he did?
