Ok, so just two days after The Roots kick off the Twilight Summer Concert Series, I'll be playing with an all-star lineup at RISE! ...the first dance music event of it's kind in SLC on July 12th at Gallivan Center. RISE! is going to be a fantastic day of music, fun, dancing and debauch. The organizers behind it have brought together not only an energetic music lineup, but have incorporated many layers into the event design and through community and nightclub involvement. It's seriously going to be spectacle not to be missed. My set time will be earlier in the day, so come early and enjoy the festivities with NewCityMovement in the house. Plus with two stages, myself, DJ DC (Trapp Door) and others may be playing again later in the evening.
Get your tickets before the day of the event! Tickets are $30 the day of the event so I recommend getting them EARLY for only $20 (+surcharge) from RiseMusicFest.com OR for a flat $20 at Lunatic Fringe locations, Mechanized or the RISE! kiosk on the patio at Trapp Door this Thursday night. I'll be playing a special Summertime DJ set there (patio) after 10pm so come say hello and play after the Roots or whatever.
