Event Review: Big Gigantic At Roseland Ballroom
December 30, 2013

In the city that never sleeps, New York offers the most outrageous and insane DJ gigs this time of the year. Although December 30th happens to fall on a Monday night, that didn't stop most New Yorkers from celebrating the 'Eve' of New Years Eve, two days shy of ringing in 2014.

Hailing from Boulder, Colorado, Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken, aka the duo known as Big Gigantic, indulged the crowd with some livetronica and dubstep beats that were nothing short of a treat for BG fans in the house. Their December 30th show marked the second edition of their back-to-back performances at Roseland Ballroom, and they certainly gave New Yorkers a reason to holler and stick around longer after their set time.

Most venues are notorious for cutting a DJ's set short due to set time schedules, but BG ignited the crowd once more for their encore performance. Needless to say, the crowd stuck around longer in hopes of catching every minute of what BG has to offer.

Let's not forget the real reason why BG has such an outstanding following of fans-- their unique blend of live instrumentals with heavy-pounding beats makes their shows one-of-a-kind! With Jeremy on the drums and Dominic playing the saxophone for the entirety of their show, the duo boasted an impressive feat keeping up with the energy of the crowd. The visuals, along with the obligatory light show, was in-sync with the jazzy tunes that were effortlessly flowing with bass-heavy beats. Needless to say, BG's show incorporated all the right elements which makes them stand out from the usual artists in the realm of EDM.

A special shout out to White Panda who opened for BG, playing mash-ups of iconic pop hits with progressive house tracks that undoubtedly stirred up the crowd right before BG took the stage.
