Didn't Get Skrillex Mini Tour Tickets? Four Reasons to Kick Yourself
Kevin Lara/OC Weekly
The almighty Skrillex is heading a sold out mini-LA tour next week, with an all star support cast each night. Sonny will showcase his label OSWLA's talent that includes Zedd, KOAN Sound and Kill the Noise. If you don't have tickets, here are four reasons why you should be mad for not buying them.
1. It's at a More Intimate Setting
Instead of seeing Skrillex at a massive like EDC, you could have taken advantage of seeing him in a more intimate setting. Seeing Skrillex in LA means, you do not have to fight over 200,000 screaming fans, just to be trampled in the middle of a pit.
2. Cheaper tickets
To all the electro bandwagonners, now you will have to spend $300 and drive to Las Vegas for EDC. You could have simply paid $40 to see Skrillex. Let's face it, If you didn't know Skrillex was on tour, you probably have "First of the Year (Equinox)" on repeat. (Don't lie.)
3. A Hometown Show
Hometown shows means a more passionate performance. These shows typically have the best line ups. Plus, no one wants to miss Skrillex sharing the stage with the American godfather of dubstep, 12th Planet.
4. Bangarang EP Realease
Skrillex will unveil a slew of new tracks from his EP Bangarang, and it does exactly as titled, it bangs. [Insert other puns such as "I have a feeling these six nights are going to bang uncontrollably. Now bang your head against a wall in anger" here.] Bangarang is slated for its hardcopy release on Tuesday; it's digital release on Dec. 23 already sold over 43,000 copies.
It's obvious on this EP that Sonny has more than dubstep on his mind; he collaborated with Wolfgang Gartner on the explosive electrohouse track, "The Devil's Den." Along with Gartner, Skrillex also partners up with the break out English female vocalist, Ellie Goulding. Their track, "Summit" is a euphoric love-step track (yes, that is a genre) that will instantly put you in a state of ecstasy.
