DUKE'S BOHEMIAN GROVE BAR
253 allen st. Buffalo, NY
The hottest type of EDM on the block right now is the Trap stylings. The marriage of Hip-Hop beats with EDM to form the reinvention of Trap music has swept up everyone and everything that is cool. Some have even blamed me for this union, but that's simply not true. You can thank T.I.,Three6Mafia, Nas, and every Indie loving hipster who decided to morph those beats into their own. Well what does this have to do with Toronto artists KEYS N KRATES playing tonight at Duke's? Well not much other than that their doing a great job of picking up the trend with some of the releases on their Soundcloud page. But Keys and Krates are way more than that. Please don't allow me to pigeon hole these versatile artists who explore all over the map of Dance music styles and pride themselves on performing live. They often remix songs in real-time live. Definitely worth the $7 to check out these phenomenal talents. What's more? A LOW PRIME CUT SENSATION will be opening. That's CUTLER, LOPRO, OPTIMUS PRIME, and CAMACIAN SENSATION as a quartet DJ group mixing on 6 decks and 4 mixers. This party is primed to pop off. Check it out.

If going the country thing ain't your bag, but hair gel is...head over to the Buffalo Tap House on Friday for an all-day House and Club music event called Shades of Summer. Twelve different acts will perform on the patio from noon on. And the best part is that there's no cover for all this great music! Check out the Facebook event page HERE for a schedule of the performances. But with this crew you pretty much know what your gonna get: tight mixing, professional acting and sounding DJs from your fair city. Get sloppy, but NO REQUESTS, thank you.
