Big Gigantic & This Song Is Sick Present Rowdytown II at Red Rocks with support Adventure Club: Date and Ticket InfoPosted in Events, News by nick | Tags: 2013, Adventure Club, Big Gigantic, Red Rocks, Rowdytown
No words could accurately describe how excited I am to announce the return of Rowdytown. Last year we worked with Big Gigantic to help present their first headlining performance at the legendary Colorado venue Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and the event could not have been a bigger hit, see video below. The lineup of openers included a star studded lineup of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Dillon Francis and GRiZ, who have all seriously exploded since the event. The event brought out projection mapping simliar to Amon Tobin on the actual Red Rocks, for the first time in the venue’s history. The event last year sold out weeks in advance and easily went down as one of the top events at Red Rocks of 2012.
Well now Rowdytown is returning to Red Rocks once again on September 28th for Rowdytown II, and we are happy to be apart of the journey. We’ve got Canadian party starters Adventure Club as support for round II. Other openers will be announced in the coming weeks, but rest assured they are pretty amazing. This year is going to go even bigger taking the production limits to the next level. This event is guaranteed to sell much faster than last year, and people were paying crazy amounts from scalpers, SO DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ONE!!

There are so many rumors surrounding Daft Punk how are you ever supposed to know what to believe? Well today we get the true confirmation from the duo themselves from their website in the form of releasing the album artwork for their 4th album release. The cover shows both members helmets spliced together, as well as the Columbia Records logo. This confirms everything, the group will be releaseing their latest artist album through American based Columbia. The wait is almost over, we will finally get some new Daft Punk music since they scored the Tron: Legacy soundtrack.
We will keep you informed on the latest Daft Punk updates!
One of the biggest electronic events in this part of the world, Electric Daisy Carnival has decided to expand to the great city of Chicago, the birthplace to house music. This madness will be going down over the weekend of May 24th – 26th. It was only time before this happened, and countless electronic fans couldn’t be happier. Pre Sales for the event have already sold out, but general admission for the event of just went on sale.
Don’t be left outside without a ticket when this legendary festival rolls through Chi Town and sells out. Some are hesitant about the lineup not being out yet, but it’s EDC after all, you should expect a good mix of the biggest DJs from across the world.
I hope that a fair amount of you remember The Postal Service, the incredible electronic side project duo featuring Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and producer Jimmy Tamborello which debuted all the way back in 2003 with their album Give Up. Well the group grew a powerful following through the grapevine over years, yet never released any new music. Well today that changes, with signs of a possible reunion and new music. They have launched a new website with the simple message shown above, which could only mean a possible reunion. I don’t want to get my hopes up to high before an official release date out of Ben Gibbard’s mouth, but this defintely opens up some possibilities. Lots of New Music? Potential Coachella play??
UPDATE: The group has announced that they will be releasing a deluxe edition of their album Give Up next month through Sub Pop. There is also confirmation from Billboard that the group will be performing at this year’s Coachella Music Festival!!
To celebrate this good sign, I have picked out a handful of great tracks from The Postal Service. Get ready for a blast of Nostalgia. If you don’t have their album Give Up, or just need a new copy, I wouldn’t wait any longer and find a copy your own way or through iTunes Here.

Songkick just unintentionally announced the long awaited news of Daft Punk playing headlining performances at Coachella 2013.
The legendary Daft Punk has become the most talked about and rumored electronic act in the entire world. The rocked the world with their iconic L.E.D. pyramid setup they took on their 2007 Alive World Tour. A few years later they got recruited to create the soundtrack for the blockbuster film Tron: Legacy taking the group to even bigger heights. Their hype has only grown every day since, with countless electronic fans hoping to get the chance to see the duo.
Well it now seems that all the rumors and waiting have possibly come an end. The concert monitoring service Songkick just sent those who follow Daft Punk the notie below letting them know that they will be appearing this year at Coachella, alongside The Rolling Stones, Phoenix, and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs I might add. This might be the moment that we have all been waiting for.
At first I grew skeptical as this wasn’t from any Daft Punk source. But then they have also confirmed to be working on the new album with legendary Nile Rogers on a new album set to come out in 2013. These Coachella headline dates would align with the release of this new album early next year.
Another point leading us to believe the Coachella leak, is a just earlier this year their was a massive information leak from world famous live muscian photographer Olver James L’eroe about DP playing the European festvial circuit (Danmark “Rosklide”, Spain “Primavera Sound”, Norway “Oyafestivalen” England “Glastonbury” and Sweden “Peace and Love”). The phographer has since gotten heat from the festival promoters, leading us to believe in it’s truth. Below is a Facebook conversation with the photagrpher Oliver leaking the European news.
With European festival speculations, Coachella near confirmation, new album in works, and their website even wen under construction earlier last month. All of these things add up to really let us believe that 2013 is finally the return of Daft Punk.. maybe they will throw in that World Tour we have been hearing about for so long. We will keep you update as we learn more details. And remember to follow our Twitter for the latest news. Enjoy!
