Alright guys, we have a big one on the West Side this week at VS. in Santa Monica. Setting themselves apart from a saturated Chicago house music scene, Santiago & Bushido have proved time and time again that their flawless DJ sets and big time remixes can turn heads around the globe. Lucky for us, we get to have the Potty Mouth duo headline at The Central in Santa Monica this Thursday. Supporting them will be a slew of talent including Denver’s own Robotic Pirate Monkey as part of their West Coast tour. Make sure to RSVP this week as it will be $5 at the door and $5 Red Bull + Vodkas all night.
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:
