Event: Jack Ü New Years Eve (Ft. A$AP Ferg, Rudimental, and Yellow Claw) @ Madison Square Garden, NYC (12/31)


Get ready for one of the craziest New Years Eve celebrations New York City has ever seen! Jack Ü the super duo comprised of Skrillex and Diplo are taking over the worlds most famous arena Madison Square Garden, and they are throwing a party that is sure to be one for the record books. The artists that will be in the house to support Jack Ü include the likes of A$AP Ferg, Rudimental, and Yellow Claw. Needless to say things are going to get pretty wild! You can be sure that Skrillex and Diplo have a few surprises up their sleeves for the big night. I wouldn’t be shocked if one of the surprises was a live performance of “Take Ü There” featuring Kiesza, since she is headlining her own show that very same night right down the road at Webster Hall.

MSG has seen some pretty incredible dance music shows over the course of 2014, boasting some insane visual productions. It should be interesting to see what the combined efforts of OWSLA and Mad Decent can come up with to blow all the previous shows out of the water, this will be no easy feat. Knowing what perfectionists both Jack Ü members are, you can pretty much guarantee that your New Years Eve in NYC will be nothing short of spectacular and well worth your money!

Review: Keys N’ Krates @ Chicago, IL (Dec 13)

Keys N Krates Concord PumpTheBeat.com

Saturday night, Keys N’ Krates put on quite an act at the Concord Music Hall. To be honest, I don’t even remember who the openers were because they stole the show as soon as they walked on stage. Standing in the crowd, grooving to the beat, I kept thinking… This is going to be the best song of the set. Transition to the next song, now this is the best song of the set. Rinse and repeat, the show did not stop getting better.

These guys put on such a great show the crowd wouldn’t let them leave. One encore turned into another as the crowd begged for more. Once the show ended, everyone stood still in awe for a moment, hoping for one more song. Take a look at some of the photos we shot below:
