Shows of Note – Darkstep


Excision is an artist we talk about quite frequently. Ever popular with the college crowd, Excision has returned to Washington again and again, pleasing fans every time. Excision takes dubstep and makes it dark, grimey and dangerous.



It’s been a while since Excision has produced a new album. X Rated was released in 2011 and he has yet to follow it up with an album or EP though there have been a handful of singles including “Headbanga”, “Brutal”, “Raise Your Fist” and “Vindicate” to name a few. Many of Excision’s most recent singles are in collaboration with other artists like Datsik and Space Laces.

Constantly on tour, Excision has listed The Gorge right here in Washington as one of his favorite venues.  Dropping out of school isn’t advice most people would give, but Excision’s decision to drop out of his business degree program ultimately paid off.

Excision is playing in the northwest January 22 at The Knitting Factory in Spokane, January 23 at The Roseland Theater in Portland and January 24 at The Paramount Theater in Seattle.  We’re giving away tickets to the Spokane show tonight between 8 and 10 p.m. and 10 and midnight. Tune-in for a chance to win!


Shows of Note – EDM in the 3D


The Morgan Page Presents tour is be the biggest tour the two-time Emmy nominee Morgan Page has ever headlined. With tour stops throughout the United States as well as overseas in countries such as Australia and India, Morgan Page is an example of the power and success that comes with being a seasoned DJ with a large number of devoted fans.

It’s hard to believe that Morgan Page comes from a rural background, having grown up in a log cabin in Vermont. Obsessed with EDM from an early age, Page started producing at the age of 14. Page’s most recent full length album, In the Air which dropped April 3, 2012 was enormously successful and the DJ also had a spot on the Paradiso bill last June.

A review of the In the Air album by said this:

“- on In The Air he sticks to the moving progressive house he knows best. His continued growth and considerable talents remind us of another California dweller and Dancing Astronaut favorite, Kaskade. We predict that In The Air will bring Page the same kind of success that Kaskade saw with Dynasty. It’s an easy comparison to make: both producers excel in making music that truly means something.”

The Morgan Page Presents Tour is a 3D tour and pushes the EDM production limits by being the first DJ tour with full high resolution 3D visuals. Smaller venues aren’t always compatible with the light show but even without the ability to be truly 3D, Page always tries to ensure fans experience something new with each of his live performances.

The ‘Burg will be giving away four pairs of tickets to various Morgan Page show locations. The giveaways start tonight (11/01) between 8 and 10 so be sure to tune-in for a chance to see Morgan Page perform live. The Morgan Page Presents tour will be in Seattle at Showbox SoDo on November 15 and the Knitting Factory in Spokane on November 16.
