Let me start by saying that the saxophone is an incredible instrument. It brings joyous energy while maintaining a particular groove that no other instrument seems to have.

If you\’ve been following Chicago festivals over the last few years, you may have seen Big Gigantic on the lineup; if you\’ve seen them live, you know exactly why we\’re excited about this announcement.

When talking about live acts in the dance world, Big G often comes up. A blend of saxophone and drums, bounded by their unique production of primarily dubstep, makes a dangerously funky mixture. They\’re definitely a duo you would not want to miss and arguably my favorite live show electronic music has to offer. Prepare to get funky on Pi Day; with support from Michal Menert and more acts to be announced, March 14th looks very promising.

Big Gigantic has played most of the major festivals Chicago has to offer, including Lollapalooza in 2012, a headlining set at North Coast in 2013, and at Spring Awakening in 2014. If you haven\’t seen them yet, now\’s your chance; limited pre-sale tickets will go up at 10 AM Central tomorrow, January 14th. Click the link below for more details.


To prepare for the #ChiTownThrowDown, check out some of Big G\’s music on their official SoundCloud page. Show them some love by downloading their tracks, which are all conveniently free.
