As Arizona gears up for fall, the EDM scene in the desert has already gotten in some serious reps this season. Coming off of Mad Decent Block Party, Relentless beats blew the lid off again this weekend by partnering with Insomniac and delivering an impressive line-up at BOO! Names like Snails and Excision got the crowd fired up and surely will keep everyone hot for what’s to happen tomorrow night. Getter , who was here in May headlining Dirty Disco, will be making his way back into town with his Wat The Frick Tour at the Marquee.
The Marquee has been getting a lot of attention the past few months as the venue starts to once again warm its way back into the hearts of many valley residents. Music lovers of all ages and genres in Phoenix can say they have seen a show at the Marquee. The venue boosts a long standing history here and has ensured to help further the impact of music in the Valley of the Sun. After its original opening in 1993, the ownership changed hands and the venue went from an strictly country music hall to a popular spot with standing room only on the ground level. It’s small and intimate with the stage less than 100 ft from the back of the house. Every show at the Marquee feels personal. My first show there was a 311 show back in the early 2000s and I have loved the venue ever since. Walking in the doors, the space opens up vastly in front of you revealing a large standing room with only dance space. The floor is slightly angled so no matter where you stand you are guaranteed an amazing view. From indie rock to dubstep lovers, I would recommend this venue to everyone.
In 2015, Tanner Petulla (Getter) signed onto Skrillex’s Label OWSLA. Here he really came into his own as a producer featuring his original track work in remixes for Brillz, Ghastly, Snails and Pegboard Nerds. Before he spun us on our heads with his MTV premiere of his experimental futuristic sound of Head Splitter, Getter also released his merch line called Trippy Burger. Bright colors and slimy oozing visuals create one of a kind designs that truly reflect him as both a DJ and an artist. All this has made Getter’s Wat the Frick Tour a highly anticipated event and now it is finally here in Arizona.
