Los Angeles-based electro-dance musicians, The Glitch Mob, are bringing their reverberating talents to the Valley when they play The Venue Scottsdale on Tuesday, June 28. The orchestral trio made up of Justin Boreta, Ed Ma, and Joshua Mayer will be blending futuristic robotic beeps, rhythmic drumming, and slow, heavy-hitting basslines à la Aphex Twin and Massive Attack.
The Mob is at the beginning of a 35 city tour which includes this weekend's Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas. This event promises to be a visually stimulating production as well, complete with multimedia elements geared toward enhancing the group's live performances.
With a new full-length album on the horizon for 2012, the group recently announced the release of We Can Make the World Stop, a three song EP available July 12. You can sample the sound by checking out a stream of last years' album, Drink The Sea, here.
If you can't roll out to Vegas this weekend, you can still get your groove on June 28 at The Venue Scottsdale, sans the five hour drive. Doors open at 8:00 p.m.
