REACT PRESENTS bringing Gorgon City to Chicago @ Double Door, October 11th!

Be sure to not miss out on your chance to see another great show brought to you by React Presents: Gorgon City on October 11th at Double Door!  These guys are responsible for some of my personal favorite music at the moment and Chicago is certainly in for a treat with this show.  If you’re digging the fresher UK garage tunes that are coming out (Disclosure, Katy B, AlunaGeorge, etc) as opposed to the cheesier ‘EDM’ side of popular electronic music, you shouldn’t skip out on seeing Gorgon City.  My current obsession is "Unmissable," but I’m beyond excited to hear the whole album on October 6th.  You can pre-order Sirens now in a variety of formats (digital | digital deluxe | vinyl) and you should, this record is poised to be one of the best of the year.  Judging from the songs we’ve heard already (listen to "Here For You" and "Ready For Your Love" if you haven’t yet), this is going to be quite the legendary record.  So buy tickets to see them at Double Door right here before they’re gone - see you there!

NEW INTERVIEW: Donavon Thomas of Wheels

by Justin Tucker

Los Angeles-based actor and independent filmmaker Donavon Thomas is very passionate about his latest film, the gritty drama Wheels. He plays Mickey, a suicidal paraplegic grief-stricken after losing his ability to walk. He befriends Drake (Patrick Hume), a fellow paraplegic, and the two bond over drugs and hookers. Mickey feels like he can walk again while on heroin and has now found a reason to live. As his addiction spirals out of control, he and Drake must resort to desperate measures in order to survive on the streets.

Wheels premiered at this year’s Newport Beach Film Festival and opened in limited release in theaters September 19th. Shortly before its limited release, I was able to ask Thomas, who transformed his body to take on the role, a few questions about the film. My findings affirmed the existence of driven, young filmmakers who care about telling personal stories. This kind of ardor for making independent films is what will save American cinema. Read on, reader…

LONDON GRAMMAR tapped for J’Adore Dior global campaign spot!

It always pleases me when artists I love achieve recognition on a global scale…it’s the reason I’m a music journalist, to help that happen.  I’ve been a huge London Grammar fan for some time now and their album, If You Wait, is one of my favorite releases from the last year.  The use of the opening track from that album, “Hey Now,” is put to use immaculately in the new Dior campaign for J’Adore Dior, starring Charlize Theron.  You can watch the spot above and for god’s sake, check out the album via this link on iTunes…you won’t regret it.  I wish I could tell you about a tour date in Chicago, but sadly there isn’t one.  If you want to drive to Indianapolis to see them (and take me with!), they’ll be performing at Deluxe at Old National Centre - tickets available here. -NMJ

FREAKY DEAKY: NERVO, KILL THE NOISE, & PEGBOARD NERDS @ Aragon on November 1st!

Chicago, are you prepared to get freaky??  The lovely folks at React Presents are bringing Nervo, Kill The Noise, and Pegboard Nerds to the Aragon Ballroom on November 1st!  I’m personally a huge fan of this entire lineup but especially Kill the Noise and Pegboard Nerds.  

It’s actually slightly astonishing that Pegboard Nerds are at the bottom of the lineup considering how much steam they’ve picked up in the last year.  Their remixes for Krewella’s "Alive" and "Live For the Night" managed to slightly outdo their original counterparts while their own original cuts like "Here It Comes" (recently dropped by Downlink in his set at Sound-Bar) and "Razor Sharp" (I prefer the VIP mix to the original) are among some of the most intelligent electronic music I’ve heard in some time.  They’re undoubtedly the golden child of Monstercat Records and are well on their way to becoming a household name.

Kill the Noise, meanwhile, is way up there on my personal list of favorite bass mechanics.  He has a sound all his own and after seeing him at the first Spring Awakening Festival a few years ago, I can personally attest to how tight his live sets are.  He’s on a level of his own and although he’s been quiet as far as releasing any new tunes, it doesn’t make it any less mind blowing to hear his stuff through a huge soundsystem.

NERVO, of course, are among the elite of what we know as “EDM” - these ladies are at the top of their game.  They churn out hit after hit after hit and are showing no signs of slowing down.  They’ve slayed crowds at all the major festivals and are now descending upon Chicago to make us all dance our asses off.  Check out their latest massive hit ripped from their Tomorrowland 2014 set, "Rise Early Morning."

You can buy tickets for this killer lineup right here - but don’t wait until this last minute, this WILL sell out!  Stay tuned for more updates and we’ll see you at the show! -NMJ

New Track “Trainwreck” || Sophomore Album Drops 9.09.2014

It’s been 10 painful years since ‘You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine’ first graced your earholes and created a musical gap that no one else could fill. Finally, DFA1979 has prepared another hit to sate your head, and a whole bushel is just around the corner! See: 'The Physical World'

To see them live, simply appear at The Riviera Theater on November 25th, 2014, even if it is just to see if Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler really do have elephant trunks.

Monday Motivation || Have a Wallpaper, you Awesome Human!
That’s a right-click and save. It may not fit your monitor (unless you turn it on its side), but it’s better than that hokey “80% of success is just showing up” ‘I’m OK you’re OK and Woody Allen is OK too’ bullshit. This is get-off your ass material for a Monday, not a massage.
