Re: Definition Night Two: Dubstep and livetronica reign at Cervantes' - 10/09/10

RE: DEFINITION - NIGHT TWO The New Deal • MartyParty • Orchard Lounge • Raw Russ • DJ Rootz Future Rock • The Floozies • Tokimonsta • Sonkin 10.9.10 | Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom/The Other Side

Dubstep is here to stay -- at least for a while -- and last night at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom, several of the musicians there showcased the range and variety in style of this relatively new sub-genre of electronica, while also bringing the jazz and the funk and pushing boundaries. Headliners New Deal, whose livetronica skills show up the more heavy-hitting Infected Mushroom and STS9, rocked the party as soon as they took the stage -- but first, the Floozies, Tokimonsta and Sonkin warmed up the venue.
