More Than Meets the Eye

Autbots and Decepticons are gonna start battling across the silver screen at your neighborhood megaplex a few weeks from now, so it’s only natural that some local EDM promoters are putting on the robot-themed Transformers 2 rave in order to cash in on the mechanical madness. And while it would be totally boss to watch an old-school “robot in disguise” like Soundwave working the wheels of steel, the all-night dancefest features DJs of a more carbon-based variety. Brooklyn electro duo Designer Drugs headlines the event along with Sin City’s Electro Muted and T. Rux, Seattle’s Break 6, and San Fran’s No Left Turn.
