We know what you're thinking.
We could come up with a lot of puns on this tour's name, but we will spare you the perverted immaturity. Instead, we will stick to single music reference from a legend who arguably helped spawn these devilish electronica sub-genres, Dubstep and Electro.
Think it's summer time and the livin's easy? Think again.
In this angry world of joblessness and debt ceilings, you need to wind up passed out on the hardwood floor every now and then. Helps maintain sanity.
And what a better promoter of sleeping cheek-to-cheek with your carpet than the 4th annual Hard Summer tour. With a range of electronica artists encompassing Dubstep, House, Techno and Dubstep, Hard Summer will prove to be a rager of a time. Special note should be taken to their Boston show, where the legendary House of Blues will witness how the improvisational style of jazz has contributed to creation of bass switches, hat snares and sampling seen in today's music.
