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 Tourwhen 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 :)!
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.
