DnB Liberation Front Tour

Sunday, January 8; the Upstairs Lounge (3131 South Grand Boulevard)


Weep not, clubgoers orphaned by the closing of Velvet. The DnB Liberation Front Tour is coming to town to inject a little drum-'n'-bass action into the city's nightlife. But unlike the strictly regimented DJ sets seen at most electronica-centered events, this tour is actually a four-hour pastiche and jumble of live instruments, DJing and emceeing that's more like a traditional concert — although with talented musicians such as Dstar, Mason, Basic Operations, Vector Burn, Beet & Bad Lieutenant, MC Sharpness and Armanni Reign rocking computers, keyboards, drums and turntables, one can be sure that the motto tonight is "anything goes."
