Altered Thurzdaze presents Cyberoptics: March 3 at the Mousetrap
When Alex Epps released “Geisha” in 2009, his career as Cyberoptics was just beginning; the nineteen year old producer smashed into the electronic scene, taking “Geisha” to number one on Beatport, among industry greats such as Borgore and Doctor P. Since then, he has had tracks on “So You Think You Can Dance” and a Michael Bay trailer, plus a second EP taking four songs to the Beatport top 20. So what could ever surpass this greatness? His third release of course! The seventeen track LP was the number one release on Beatport.
Since his dive into the music scene in 2012, Canada native Snails has been gaining a heavy fan base of listeners and artists alike. Which is no surprise: Snails provides listeners with the perfect package of hip-hop rhythm and dirty bass, with each of his latest releases topping the charts. On tour now, you will want to grab your tickets for this show, unless you think Skrillex, Diplo, Datsik, Excision, and Flosstradamus are all wrong about him.

Altered Thurzdaze presents Panzer: March 10 at The Mousetrap
Even before teaming up as the Midwest’s own Panzer, Matt Berchiolli and Ryon McBride were playing stages as solo acts. So, naturally, when they teamed up in 2012, their bass-heavy live performances have been surprising listeners ever since. Which is easy to do, as they rock a 4×4 turntable with separate live feeds, mixing up dirty electro and grimy drumstep every stage they take.
Excision: March 17 at the Old National Centre
This is not a show for the faint hearted. Not a show for play it safers or gentle souls. But, if you think you can handle the brutality of Excision, you will surely not be disappointed. The bass super god originates from British Columbia, and even runs his own label, Rottun, and has gained quite the following. Listeners flock to his hows, time and time again, and his latest addition only makes them run faster: the light show will blow your mind, if the music does not do that first. Grab your tickets, before they sell out!
Altered Thurzdaze presents Muzzy Bearr: March 24 at the Mousetrap
The man behind the strings of GRiZ is Dan Hacker, better known as Muzzy Bearr. The Michigan native destroys stages, whether beside his partner in crime or solo, exemplified on Vintage Sutra, his six track release features tracks with Exmag, Denmark Vessey, and, of course, GRiZ. So what can you expect when he takes over the Mousetrap? Heavy hitting, expertly executed excellence, a set you certainly do not want to miss.
The Main Squeeze w/ Sidewalk Chalk: March 25 at the Vogue
The Indianapolis born funk-gods are back again to reign over the Vogue, still on tour for their latest release, Mind Your Head.

Hailing from Chicago, each member of this group brings their own expertise to the group, merging a multitude of styles into their third release, Shoulder Season. Put together from seven different live performances, the album is intended to represent transition, an expectation for what is yet to come; for Sidewalk Chalk, the future is in he making, the picture only just beginning. Tickets to the show here in Indy are going fast!

Contributing to their varying stylistic performances, BoomBox forgoes traditional set lists, and instead mixes what feels right for the atmosphere, providing listeners with a completely unique experience every time.
