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!!

The live electronic band Savoy have been non stop touring around the country with their impressive laser setup. In the middle of the all the touring they had time to create an extremely impressive 4 song release. It’s the Personal Legend EP and we are happy to be sponsoring it. The first song “The Bridge” has captures their classic electro house sound with a funk filled edge. The second track on the EP, “AfterShock” is the MASSIVE dubstep paced collaboration between Savoy and Big Gigantic and WHOA.. this is one for the books. It perfectly fuses the best parts of Savoy and Big Gigantic for an onslaught of bass, melody, and emotion. Then up next is “Kidz” which is an extra frightening electro rave anthem, not one for the faint of heart. Last up is “Hard to Say” which is melodic drum and bass beast to end the release. All 4 tracks are dope, and what better then to give them all out for free? Don’t miss their previous Supertrail EP for free download as well. Turn this up, enjoy!

It already been announced that the massive 3 day long Colorado snow music festival SnowBall had relocated from the Vail area to Winter Park for 2013. The festival has always had one of the freshest most diverse lineups not just in Colorado but on the West coast. They have consistently had a great blend of the hottest new electronic, live band, and hip-hop acts all at the same festival to enjoy while freezing your ass off. Well now for the big switch of locations, this lineup completely makes up for the move. The headliners include past attendee Colorado electronic icon Pretty Lights who knows how to shut a festival down. STS9 makes their highly anticipated debut Snow festival appearance which is sure to be one to remember. Rowdytown headliner, fellow Colorado Native Big Gigantic are set to unleash their new stage setup. The man bringing real hip-hop back to American mainstream… Kendrick Lamar. One of our favorite rising Electro stars Porter Robinson is set to have a epic headlining performance. Datsik will probably drop bass louder then you have ever heard.. literally. Flying Lotus is one of the most intelligent producers and will take you too another world with his future sounding productions. The collaboration project between GRiZ and Gramatik aka Grizmatik will be performing their first official festival performance with live production. And those are only the headliners playing the festival, look above / below at the rest of the jaw dropping lineup. These are more then enough reason to rage in the freezing snow for 3 days for an unforgettable weekend filled with snow and music. Hope to see everyone out in the snow this year!

Big Gigantic – “Rowdytown 2012″ at Red Rocks Presented by Thissongissick.com Official Video Recap, Full Review & Photo Gallery (ft. Macklemore, Dillon Francis, GRiZ, Raw Russ) [REVIEW]Posted in Bangin, Events, Video by nick | Tags: 2012, Big Gigantic, Griz, Red Rocks, Rowdytown
I started the blog back in February 2010 and the site has never done a proper concert review to date. I have gone to countless concerts since creating the website, and they have played an instrumental part in discovering new music. This past summer TSIS had the pleasure of working with the Big Gigantic team on “Rowdytown” that took place at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater, which completely Sold Out.. and it even got voted Best Electronic event of 2012 in Colorado by Westword.. It was really amazing to be apart of such an amazing groups’ biggest moment to date. We have premiere of the official recap video and have done a full review of the event complete witha picture gallery (above and below). Leave a comment below if you made it out to the first ever Rowdytown, or what city you would like to see Rowdytown come visit next?!
Big Gigantic Official “Rowdytown” Recap Video
Rowdytown took place on September 29th 2012 at Red Rocks Amphitheater and was Big Gigantic’s first headlining Red Rocks show. Also on the lineup was seatlle hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, moombahton king Dillon Francis, rising new electro soul sax player GRiZ, and Boulder local turntablist Raw Russ. This was a lineup that we worked with the Big Gigantic team to help pick, and we felt it was incredibly diverse and offered a little something for everything, without ever getting boring. We wanted to create a show that got you out to Red Rocks early in the evening and let you enjoy it all night. We also worked with them to help prepare some of craziest production I have ever seen at Red Rocks. Projection mapping was done for the first time ever on the actual side of the Red Rocks (See above picture). This was a first in Red Rocks history, and it was EPIC. It wasn’t quite as bright as if you were in the first 20-30 rows, but if you were anywhere towards the top.. jaw dropping. The concert goer was completely immersed in a light filled “Rowdytown”.
The night started out with Raw Russ, boulder local and one half of the Elm & Oak team, and he got the night warmed up proper throwing down some fresh moombahton and trap to get everyone moving.
Then GRiZ (picture above), one of the most buzzed about electronic names in Colorado took stage, and despite his early time slot, he made it feel far later. He played an incredible set managing to get in almost every track off of Mad Liberation. Some other highlights included his “Welcome To Jamrock” bootleg as well as an unreleased RJD2 “Ghostwriter” remix that was amazing. He ended the monumental set in his career fittingly with “Better Than I’ve Ever Been”. That is until his cameo during the headliner Big Gigantic’s set later in the night.
Then moving on to the Hip-Hop of the evening we had Macklemore & Ryan Lewis put on and incredible live performance complete with live singers, trumpet players and all. They performed some of their iconic tracks off their, at the time, yet to be released debut album The Heist. They also played some past fan favorites like “And We Danced” and “Otherside”. Ben (Macklemore) was actually sick at the time, but didn’t let is show once on stage, really giving one of the best hip-hop performances I had seen all year. Macklemore even capped the show off for by giving TSIS a shout out at the end of his performance. Considering Macklemore was one of the reasons that the website actually included hip-hop, it left me with quite the smile.
Now on to the headlining act of the evening, Colorado’s new heroes, Big Gigantic. Dominic Lalli on Saxaphone and Jeremy Salken on Drums, all dressed in white took the audience on a roller coaster through just about every single genre. They dropped a variety of tracks off their recent Nocturnal album, as well as some huge crowd favorites off A Place Behind the Moon like “Sky High” “Limelight” and “Step Up”. They even broke out some of their crowd favortie remixes like “I Need A Dollar”. Towards the middle of their set Dominic brought out openening act GRiZ for a cameo to play one of his tracks “Mr. B (Featuring Dominic Lalli)”, and Dom and GRiZ’s new freshly released collaboration track “Power”. The crowd was engaged and raging from start to finish. You could see the pure joy and satisfaction on Dominic and Jeremy’s face and they played to their Sold-Out Red Rocks crowd. This was not your average set or show, it was truly one for the books. It was a night that everyone in attendance will remember for a long time to come. Big Gigantic left us knowing that this was just the beginning of something very Big and Gigantic.
We couldn’t have been happier to be involved with the Big Gigantic team and everyone involved in making this show possible. We can not wait to help bring Rowdytown to another city and see what happens. Please share your Rowdytown story below or if you could not make it tell use what city we should bring Rowdytown to next?
I have been wanting this track ever since it got debuted at Electric Forest Music Festival last summer during Big Gigantic’s closing set. It is MASSIVE bass heavy collaboration between Colorado electronic powerhouse Big Gigantic and the freshest new electronic star GRiZ. This track, “Power” packs quite a lot of power in the form of vicious synths and raw basslines. The massive edge is balanced out with soulful groovy essence of both artists. These are the two artists who are playing at Aragon Ballroom on New Years Eve in Chicago for a very special party presented by Thissongissick.com… which just completely SOLD OUT!! So what a better way to welcome in the new year early with their massive collaboration.. Looks like 2013 is the year of Power? Turn this up, grab the free download, enjoy!

Easily one of the most enjoyable festivals of this past year was Buku Music & Art Project which took place in New Orleans last march. The festival had an intimate vibe being under 10,0000 people, and took place right on the water at Mardi Gras World, the famed warehouse / shipyard that all of the insane Mardi Gras floats get built at year round. The uniquely set festival also boasted a jaw dropping lineup which featured Skrillex, Wiz Khalifa, Avicii, Diplo, Big Gigantic, Porter Robinson, Big K.R.I.T., and Wolgang Gartner among others. With so many of the aritsts from last years lineup exploding in size, I coudln’t help but wonder how they could possibly match the lineup.. Well look below and you will see they more then matched it, it might be even better! The festival will be returning to New Orleans in 2013 for the weekend of March 8th and March 9th. We are excited to be partnering up with Buku again for 2013! Tickets go on sale for Buku 2013 this Friday, December 7 at 11:00 a.m. CST.

Yes the title is correct. Amendment 64 just got passed in the election last night. Meaning that on January 1st in Colorado Marijuana will be legal. Anyone over the age of 21 will be allowed to posses up to an 1 ounce of Marijuana.
To honor this historic occasion Colorado electronic duo and one of Thissongissick’s favorites Big Gigantic droped a fresh new track “Colorado Mountain High”. This massive bass packed track featuring some samples from Lil Wayne creates potentially one of the best hardest hitting Colorado anthems I’ve ever heard. The song is fittingly 4 minutes and 20 seconds long. Turn this up, light one up, enjoy!

Big Gigantic is bringing out their full new production, with lots of suprises in store. And GRiZ is sure to play an incredible set, and probably come out during Big G’s set to play his collaboration songs with Dominic (like he did at Rowdytown). If you are anywhere close to Chicago, this is the party to be at. This show may not have as many names as some other NYE parties, but if you went to Rowdytown, you know this isn’t going to be a show to forget. Tickets are on sale here, and are already on their way to being completely SOLDOUT. Don’t miss out on the best way to bring on the New Year.
