The city by the bay is getting a heavy dose of bass on February 10th, with the San Francisco stop of Excision’s X Tour. The tour combines a visual instillation with a 100,000 watt sound system, creating a stage setup boasting to be louder than any other dubstep show. With a supporting lineup of Lucky Date and Liquid Stranger, the X Tour is set to shake the foundation of The Warfield with heavy drops and resonating wobbles. Check out the trailer for the tour after the jump.
Dirtybird is one of the best labels out there — hands down. It’s been a decade since Claude VonStroke, Worthy and the MartinBrothers started their BBQ parties up in San Francisco, and they’re celebrating 10 years in the best way possible: throwing eight parties on two continents in three months. Lineups in each city will differ, but CvS and Justin Martin will be on board for all eight. Underbill artists include Worthy, Eats Everything, Julio Bashmore, Catz N Dogz, French Fries, and way more.
We recently took a brief poll of what our fans on Facebook & Twitter thought was the “Track of the Year,” and we received overwhelming responses for “Levels” by Avicii. After an enormous year with productions as well as touring, Avicii is coming back to San Francisco for an encore after playing a couple dates at Ruby Skye back in September. On December 29th, he will be playing at The Warfield at two separate times (7:30pm and 11pm). However, the 11pm show is already sold out, but there are still tickets available for the 7:30pm slot! San Francisco, we recommend you act fast on tickets to catch an artist that is partially responsible for electronic music’s recent explosion in the US. Keep an eye on our Facebook on Friday for a ticket giveaway and see how Australia gets down with Avicii after the jump!
