ARTS Pick: Excision

The visual spectacle of an Excision show takes the typical EDM light show to new levels of visual assault. The visual spectacle of an Excision show takes the typical EDM light show to new levels of visual assault.

A claw-like spaceship hovers above a cityscape as electronic dance music begins to build. The heavy bass finally drops, and a claw releases fiery bombs syncopated with the beat, leveling the city with sound and displayed by the Executioner, a 420 square foot video stage featuring 3D animation. Housed in the center of the behemoth, Canadian DJ and producer Excision spins dark, heavy dubstep amplified to 150,000 watts, which will literally rattle your bones. Despite being derisively labeled as “brostep,” artists like Skrillex and Excision have been packing festival dance floors with the aggressive beats and subsonic bass that characterize their sound.

Tuesday 3/18. $25-27, 9pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
