Northern Irish rockers, Two Door Cinema Club, have made the leap from indie sensations, to bonafide rockstars, and the evidence is clear from their explosive live set. On the second of two New York City dates, the lads lit up the Hammerstein Ballroom this past Friday night (October 11), to a sold-out crowd of fans. Opened by RAC and rising-star St. Lucia, the ballroom had a festival atmosphere, as the crowd danced to the electronic and island grooves of the two openers, and buzzed in anticipation of Irish trio.
As the band took the stage, the crowd erupted into a deafening roar of cheers as Alex, Kevin, and Sam took their instruments and prepared to rock the concertgoers. Starting off their set with “Sleep Alone,” the lead single from their sophomore album, Beacon, the crowd broke out into a synchronized clap as the song built up and unleashed the trademark energetic guitars of the trio. Followed by fan-favorite “Undercover Martyn,” the crowd sang and danced-along to the record as smoke cannons erupted, and the most epic strobe light show illuminated the stage.
There's no bigger force to be reckoned with than Swedish House Mafia. Announcing their final run as a trio with their most extensive outing ever, "One Last Tour," the Swedes have now announced they will be giving back to the victims of Hurricane Sandy and play a show at Hammerstein Ballroom on February 28 before they play New York's Madison Square Garden on March 1 and Barclays Center on March 2-4. Their final shows will be the grand finale as they open Ultra Music Festival in Miami on March 15 and close out the festival on March 24...one last time.
But, this isn't your typical rave. Steve Angello, Axwell, and Sebastian Ingrosso are throwing a Black Tie Rave with plans to donate 100% of the proceeds to The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City and The Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund.
UK dubstep producer, Gemini has had quite a few months to add to his list of musical accomplishments. Born Thomas Slinger, the 22-year-old dubstep producer is inching closer and closer to redefining the techniques we typically see in that genre. While running his own label, Inspected Records, the young buck recently released his new album, Mercury EP, and has remixed everyone from Lana Del Ray to Diddy Dirty Money to Kelis.

“I heard about this frog…” it wasn’t a very tiny frog, but it was very special. I didn’t find it in the jungle, but instead Hammerstein Ballroom; and indeed, my world is changed forever.
As darkness descended upon the crowd, the rumbling from above began. The growing, anticipatory hum of amplifiers, accompanied by neon diamonds lit up behind the stage, rained down an overwhelming feeling of epic-ness. The feeling? E.T. didn’t have a spacecraft of this magnitude. Suddenly, rolling synth overtook the airwaves and the universally cosmic message of “Intro” came belting out of front-man Anthony Gonzalez’ mouth… “Carry On”.
After nearly a decade of perfecting their performance art, the duo is ready to rock New York City once again. Known for their theatrical stage presence and complex production routines, Justice gives audiences the rarefied live experience that leaves hands trembling and begging for more.
Presale tickets can be purchased here.
M83 has the tendency to sell out their shows. Quickly. Earlier this month they sold out Terminal 5 and they already sold out their Summerstage performance in August.
For some reason, however, their show on October 2 at the Hammerstein Ballroom has yet to sell out. While this is good news for those who still want tickets for that date, they must be running out quickly, as M83 just announced they would be playing another date, 10/3, at the ballroom.
Rejoice! But if things go like they usually do, snatch up those tickets soon. Check this out for more information!
M83 stormed onto the scene last year with the highly acclaimed album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming. Although they've been around since 2001, they are only now getting some of the notoriety they have been seeking. They've only just begun playing huge shows at festivals and arenas, but the band, fronted by Spanish-French musician Anthony Gonzalez, has really come into their own. Playing a mix of electronic pop and 'showgaze' style rock, M83 have successfully crossed over as a band EVERYONE likes. They are playing on Oct. 2nd, at the Hammerstein Ballroom, which is an insane venue.
