This Saturday, Gotta Dance Dirty returns to their old 805 stompin grounds for a good ol’ Back 2 School Takeover. Join us as we invade The Savoy in downtown Santa Barbara, teaming up with OnSlaught Productions and DNA Studios to bring you a very special b2b set from BONES & Troy Kurtz in the main room, along with UCSB alumni aRod and Burn Unit holding down the 3rd floor. Supporting the night will be SB local talent IDEX and MICO. School is back in session and what better way to kick off the start of fall then with a proper night of dancing dirty with our GDD fam. See you this weekend!
In just nine days from now, thousands will embark on a journey to a place unlike any other, The Do LaB‘s Lightning in a Bottle. The excellent music, beautiful art, spiritually cleansing yoga, and educational speakers are all to be enjoyed to the fullest at one of my favorite festivals that takes place at the beautiful Oak Canyon Ranch. After attending last year’s LIB, it’s difficult to put to words what my incredible experience was like, but I can assure you that you will be more than happy to have been a part of something much different than your typical music festival. With a well-rounded, eclectic lineup including the legendary Bassnectar, and dozens of other big names/underground acts, I can already tell it’s going to be too much fun going from set to set. Grab your tickets with the link below, check out a video/pictures from last year, and the LIB 2012 mixtape contest winner after the jump!
If you goto UCSB, then get stoked. Isla Vista native Steve Aoki is teaming up with Sol Republic headphones to give away a pair of tickets to the DEADMEAT TOUR ft. Steve Aoki + Datsik this Friday, January 20th in Santa Barbara. The winner will receive not only 1 pair of tickets to the show @ Earl Warren Showgrounds, but also the spankin’ new Sol Republic AMP ear bud headphones (shown above).
HOW TO WIN:
Head over to our GDD FACEBOOK PAGE and: √ ‘LIKE’ our page (for cryin’ out loud) √ comment/mention @Sol Republic and #SB √ Tell us who would win in a fight between Steve Aoki or Datsik?
The most worthy/entertaining answer will be announced Friday @ NOON!
As we are now in the eye of the holiday hurricane, the right dose of mixtape can get you through all the buzz and bustle of the crazy season. Lucky for you, our very own aRod & BONES have comprised an early present for all you faithful dirty dancers out there. Back by popular groove, this is the second installment of our collaborative project between the polar opposite ends of the Gotta Dance Dirty spectrum. Recorded LIVE, the product is a an hour long journey through Disco, Indie, Deep, Heart and Soul. Happy Holidaze everyone!

Being that it is where I’m from, you should all know that GDD loves Colorado. Especially its unique taste in music genres and the epic EDM groups that have come out of there over the years; SAVOY and Pretty Lights just to name a few. However, there is a new presence to be aware of coming straight out of Boulder, CO known as Robotic Pirate Monkey. Formed in early 2010, R.P.M. consists of the B-Town trio of Matt Berryhill, Matt Flesher and Andrew Hathaway (aka. Hathbanger). Since forming R.P.M. has grown their fan base from local to statewide, as the next big up and comers on the Colorado electronic music scene and now they have the chance to prove their weight in the Golden State. For six weeks in May and June, R.P.M. will be cruising around the great state of California, bringing their Rocky Mountain bass to the West Coast. With opening support from THiCK CHiCK and Skywalkerr, R.P.M. announces their Buried Treasure Tour with 12 stops along the West Coast (including a stop at our VERSUS party on the 19th of May) – check ‘em out below:
May 9 – Dragonfly – Santa Monica, CA May 14 – Blue Fin – Monterey, CA May 16 – Shattuck Down Low – Berkeley, CA May 19 – VERSUS @ CENTRAL – Los Angeles, CA May 22 – Jamabalaya – Humboldt, CA May 26 – Velvet Jones – Santa Barbara, CA June 1 – Tiki Bar – Costa Mesa, CA June 2 – Ocean Bar – Manhattan Beach, CA June 3 – CONTROL @ Avalon – Hollywood, CA June 7 – A/C Lounge – San Diego, CA June 8 – Moitav – San Luis Obispo, CA June 11 – Fulton SS - Fresno, CA
