DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist come to the Roundhouse to perform an
expanded version of the Hard Sell show.
Following in the footsteps of their now-legendary "Brainfreeze" (1999)
and "Product Placement" (2001) sets, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist have outdone themselves.
Their new, all-45 show, entitled "The Hard Sell," incorporates eight
turntables and two guitar loop pedals, allowing tricks and complexity
rarely attempted by a DJ duo. As with the two previous sets, the pair
eschew their own material in favor of an amalgam of music from all
eras and styles, providing for amusing and provocative mash-ups; rap
mixes with fiddle music, doo-wop with new wave, and everything in
between...all while avoiding the obvious, "been there, heard that"
stuff you get from most DJs.
The last time "The Hard Sell" was performed in the United States was
in front of 15,000 people at the world famous Hollywood Bowl...so you
know it's going to be special. In the words of Shadow himself, "we
want to play something to make everyone smile...and then send them
running for the exits!" Don't miss this rare appearance by two of
California's most cutting-edge DJs.
7:00pm for a 7:30pm start.
