Go to Big Gigantic to get your mind off of the election
Big Gigantic is coming to town with ‘A x D and Illenium’ this Monday to help us all forget about this Armageddon of an election on Tuesday. The duo of Dominic Lalli on the saxophone and Jeremy Salken on drums are continuing their national Brighter Future Tour and plan on spreading their electronic jazz and hip hop sound to Penn Staters at 8:30pm in the State Theatre on College ave. Tickets are going for $30.50 online here and $36.00 at the door. And remember, there are no bags allowed inside of the theatre.
The Colorado-based group has been refining their unique sound since 2008. When Lalli received his masters degree in jazz from the Manhattan School of Music, he teamed up with Salken in Boulder, Colorado. They began performing together at local shows and experimenting with mixing electronic dance music and live instruments. Since then, the crew has played some breathtaking sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Governor’s Ball, and more.
Big Gigantic has released five studio albums to date, and their recent single “The Little Things” has been streamed over 20 million times. Big G’s genre is not necessarily limited to “dance” music though. Many genre’s are intertwined in the music, including jazz, hip hop, funk and dubstep. It is music that is not limited to the absolute dance genre but always manages to get the crowd moving by creating a free flowing vibe with its catchy melodies and samples and phenomenal team improvisation.
Attending this event on Monday will help your mental health, guaranteed. You will feel much better about voting the next day after experiencing Big Gigantic, not to mention the fact that a percentage of the event’s profits will be going to The Centre Volunteers in Medicine as part of their #ABigGiganticDifference initiative. It’s really a win, win.
