The cancellation of Day 3 of Electric Zoo left festival goers stumped as they tried to come up with ways to savor the remainder of their weekend. With the official after parties selling out, there were many fans left with nothing to do. However, a few additional artists scrambled to throw together last minute gigs to give Electric Zoo fans a place to spend their Sunday evening. One of the surprise shows had a lineup that was bound to be madness, including: Mark Instinct, KDrew, Pegboard Nerds, Dank, and Subset. Easily the craziest lineup of the evening, there were many who weren’t about to miss out on the event. We had a chance to talk with Alex and Michael, also known as the duo, Pegboard Nerds, earlier that evening before the show. We asked about their latest EP, their tour, and their opinions on the cancellation of Day 3.

This year there will be a total of five stages in addition to the two main stages for all you zoo animals out there to choose from.
Known for its colossal roster of quality talent, the Circle Talent Agency kicked off Miami Music Week with a splash at their poolside showcase! Touting a star-studded lineup featuring Flux Pavilion, Doctor P, and Datsik, the showcase invited dubstep lovers to bask in the sun while watching their favorite artists flex their bass-heavy muscles. And although anchored by the agency’s superstar turntablists, it was rising stars Lucky Date and Carnage who truly stole the show(case).
Thirty-five thousand people attended last Saturday’s (Nov. 3) sold-out HARD Day of the Dead festival in downtown LA. Attendees dressed in their leftover Halloween costumes, painted their faces like skeletons and erupted into song, singing "We Are Your Friends" by main stage headliner, Justice, whilst piling out of the packed Chinatown metro station early Saturday evening.
Upon exiting the metro station, which was conveniently located across from the festival's entrance, festival-goers were forced to wait in an obscenely crowded mob to get IDs checked, which were barely even glanced at. For a festival that adheres to strict security (they make attendees take off their shoes), this appeared to be counterproductive. Once past that checkpoint, fans had to wait in another lengthy line, but some grew impatient and just hopped the barriers wreaking havoc and causing even longer lines for those coming in after.
You could hear the bass from down the street. As night fell over the Hudson River, a mass of costume-clad fans appeared along the Westside highway, walking against traffic and towards the emanating pounding beats. For anyone in the area, it was clear that their destination was Pier 94, the monstrous venue transformed for the weekend into the Pier of Fear. Premiering for the first night of a doubleheader Halloweekend as Manhattan's very own bass mecca, the pier set the bar high with an impressive lineup featuring Knife Party, Tommy Trash and Kill the Noise, and supporting acts Destructo, Baauer, and Style of Eye to set stage for the madness of the weekend to come.
