ORBITAL, THE REGENCY BALLROOM, SF


SEPTEMBER 24 ORBITAL


Electronic music royalty duo Orbital – responsible for hits such as ‘Chime’, Halcyon’ and ‘Belfast’ - makes a stop in San Francisco. Fresh off a mesmerizing performance at the opening ceremony of the Paralympic games, where they performed inside a giant recreation of the Large Hadron Collider with Professor Stephen Hawkings providing vocals (it’s true!), it will certainly be a show attended by electronic music fans of all ages. With their first studio album in eight years under their belts, the latest single ‘Where Is It Going?’ is simply a continuation of the genius of these two brothers. Fans of the genre should make this a mandatory attendance if in town. Class is now in session, prepare to be inspired.


GASLAMP KILLER & FRIENDS, THE MAYAN THEATER, LOS ANGELES


SEPTEMBER 19TH GASLAMP KILLER & MORE TBC


The Gaslamp Killer (or to give him his full moniker The Motherfucking Gaslamp Killer), live and direct, is the dictionary definition of a beat- dropping, mash-up, high energy, good fucking time. If you’ve ever seen him perform then you know this dude doesn’t miss a beat. And the hair/ head bopping combo? Champion effort really. Slash himself would look on with envy. Set to release his latest full length album ‘Breakthrough’ on September 18 via Brainfeeder Records, this party, presented by Red Bull Music Academy, will be off the wall bangers, left, right and center. The ‘and friends’ is likely to be a roll call of artists that also appear on his album, which includes Gonjasufi, Daedelus, SAMIYAM, Computer Jay and more. GLK has an energy that is uniquely his own and an approach to music nobody should deny themselves. Do it.

FRED FALKE, BARDOT, MIAMI, FL


SEPTEMBER 13TH FRED FALKE, ANDREW WARD


There has to be a sub-group of indie fans that have shrines dedicated to this remix master, it’s almost like the German-born, French-based producer can do no wrong. If your song is lucky enough to join this remix canon, you can basically consider yourself as ‘having arrived’ (in the cool underground scene sort of way). The bass player turned producer has remixed artists ranging from Grizzly Bear and Kelis to Goldfrapp and The Whitest Boy Alive. The beautiful thing is he remains loyal to the melody of the song, then swirls all kinds of funk disco French electro house magic around it. Bardot Miami has that, “we’re just chillin in a cool indie living room,” vibe (hence the series name Living Room Sessions), so it’s the perfect place to enjoy Fred Falke live. It will no doubt be packed to capacity, so early birds get the couch spot. You won’t need these long though as you’ll be dancing it out once he drops the first few beats.
