What is a Zoogma?

Standard

Zoogma or Avicii? That was the dilemma Gainesville faced on October 26th. To see another mainstream DJ or to support smaller bands that produce live music? Most of the people who went to Avicii probably have never even heard of Zoogma. If you don’t, here’s you’re chance to find out.

Zoogma is a 5-person, psychedelic, experimental jam band that has established somewhat of a cult following. They have become more and more prominent on the EDM scene even though they don’t DJ and create the same type of sound that an electro DJ would produce. They have been all over the country lately and just got added to the Lights All Night line up. Watch out for this group from Mississippi. They are up-and-comers.

Their set on Monday was both well thought out and balanced. They knew when to play a slower song and when to play an extremely intense song. Who can’t resist dancing to their tune “Primary Colors?”

Even though there weren’t many people at the show, it made the environment more intimate and relaxed. One of the openers, EP3, put on an awesome show. They definitely set the mood. Double Down has put out some great shows and there will be more in the future. Check out the full photo album on facebook here.

Archnemesis’ People’s Radio Tour

Standard

The first time I heard Archnemesis, I had no idea who they were. The only thing I did know was that they were closing Camp Bisco 2011, which meant they had to be some sort of amazing.

To the likes of the crowd, Archnemesis’ closing set was the perfect end to a perfect weekend. Ever since this past summer, I’ve been thinking about who they are and where they come from.

Archnemesis is made up of Justin Aubuchon and Curt Heiny. On 1320 Records, along with STS9, Emancipator and The Polish Ambassador, Archnemesis has proven the quality of their music. Their sound varies across the lines of different genres to create something different.

Archnemesis will be in Gainesville, Fla., this Friday,  at Double Down. Presales are $12 and tickets at the door will be $14. You can get hard tickets at High Tides, Hear Again and ticketweb.com. J2K will be opening, so make sure you get there early. Doors open at 9 p.m.
