GRiZ has always been a strong supporter of his fans and 2 nights ago he reinforced his support during his New Orleans stop of his Super Shagadelic Tour when the venue's power was shut off due to the firealarm being pulled because of too much smoke in the venue.
Instead of letting the show end abruptly, GRiZ ditched his CDJ's on the fly and proceeded to play an epic sax solo all without a microphone or beat. We have the insane video that he just shared on his FB which captures the raw energy in the room during the unexpected acoustic sax solo. And some people think Electronic artists just push buttons but GRiZ proves them wrong :)!
GRiZ has been a long-time featured artist here at TSIS as we've covered all of his free albums and remixes as well as his tours and monumental headline shows at venues like Red Rocks (which commenced this last weekend). He just dropped off his end of summer closing mixtape / album Chasing The Golden Hour, and it seems like he's bringing the idea to life.
Something outside of his signature sound blending of funk, soul and gritty bass are his live shows. He is a true live performer in the electronic world outside of being a traditional DJ. Most notably is the fact that he's belting out Saxophone lines through the entire set as he infuses the instrument on every single one of his productions. On top of being a talented live musician, he has the lead member energy commanding the room with his charisma and upbeat attitude.
He's been able to sell out shows all across the world and has played a majority of the biggest music festivals. One thing that he's made sure to happen is he's NEVER ONCE done his own live stream of a live performance. Grant wants to make sure everyone watching him live gets the full GRiZ experience, until now.
He just played a huge set in New York at Electric Zoo and has been hanging around the city. He'll be taking over a private rooftop in New York starting at 6:45 EST on the dot. You can tune into the live stream in partership with Twitch through the embed below.
Starting time : 3:45pm PST // 4:45pm MST // 5:45 CST // 6:45pm EST
Watch the stream after the jump!

It’s no secret that Griz loves weed, and it’s no surprise that the Detroit native relocated to beautiful Boulder, Colorado. He recently took his weed smoking to the next level by teaming up with Native Roots dispensary to have his own strain of weed appropriately called “Griz Kush.” It’s every stoner’s dream to have a weed strain named after you, and his strain actually went on to win this year’s cannibis cup, which is Colorado’s premier weed competition/convention.
Here we have a a mini-documentary about Griz Kush showing a behind the scenes look as he talks weed and music in his home studio and at the grow-op. He talks how weed interacts with music and explains how weed helps him hone in creativity and goes on to explain "it's kinda coincidental that right when I started smoking weed I started making music. It’s helps me calm down mentally.” Those of you in town for his Red Rocks show should stop by the dispensary and grab some of that Griz Kush as the perfect mood setter for the night.

My story has changed quite a lot since moving to Boulder, Colorado and starting Thissongissick back in 2010. My name is Nick Guarino and this is Thissongissick.com. We've grown a lot since, but the original goal has always stayed the same: making it easier for you to discover sick new music that you've never heard before. In high school I would make mix cd's for my friends to show them all the new music I was discovering. Now, through TSIS, we work with musicians and record labels from all over the world to showcase a variety of the freshest electronic, hip-hop, indie, and alternative music to a global following that is comprised of millions of music lovers in over 110 countries - every single month. So, make yourself at home while enjoying countless amazing musicians from a variety of genres and let the sick sounds fill your ears! - Nick
