Saturday To-Do: Spin-Off: Battle for the River

Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2012 at 10:12 AM

Spin Off: Battle for the River is Saturday at Revolution.

9 p.m. Revolution. Free for 21 and older, $5 for 18-20.

So the folks at Verizon Arena are bringing in Colorado-based DJ Pretty Lights for a show at Riverfest Amphitheatre on Sept. 26.

When it came time to find an opening act, they thought a battle of the DJs might be an interesting way to go. Thus, Spin Off: Battle for the River, which will include five electronic artists squaring off to determine which one of them will get to open what will be one of the biggest electronic shows of the year.

Full disclosure: the Times is a sponsor of this event and I'm going to be one of the judges.

One of the artists had to drop out of the show, so the final lineup isn't settled, but here are the semi-finalists as of Tuesday's press deadline: Bass Munst3r, Doug Kramer, Dylan Dugger and Explicit.
