It’s well known among my friends that the Toronto-based duo of Hooks & DC who go by the moniker Zeds Dead are my favorite electronic act by far. I’ve seen them a number of times over the past few years and never miss a chance to catch them when they are either touring or playing a festival within driving distance.
Just last week they announced their Northern Lights Tour, which will begin in late September and their first tour date is in.. wait for it.. fucking Baltimore. LAWWWWD! It’s perfect. I’m extremely pumped to see these dudes throw down once again. It will be interesting to see how they come off in a venue like Ram’s Head, which is not designed for electronic shows. I’ve seen a few acts there including Zedd and Morgan Page, but much prefer seeing electronic artists at Soundstage, because of it’s low ceiling, basement-like feel that better lends itself to an EDM show. Regardless I’m super excited. I’ve got my tickets already. LFG.
As I celebrate this glorious day, here is the guys’ set from EDC Las Vegas 2013 – the first time I ever saw them live. Memoriesssssss.
