The night is still young for BIG GIGANTIC, one of the most celebrated acts in live music right now. They have announced they will return to the road on their “Touch The Sky Tour,” their next headlining road trek in 2014 in support of their fifth studio album THE NIGHT IS YOUNG out now.
The month-long tour launches on October 8 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH right after BIG GIGANTIC performs with Bassnectar at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City. The pair mostly keeps east of the Mississippi, making stops in such markets as Grand Rapids, St. Louis, Kansas City, Urbana, IL, Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham, Chattanooga, Philadelphia, Detroit, Atlanta and more. Named after The Night Is Young album cut “Touch the Sky”—an electro-leaning dance track drizzled with jazzy sax tones courtesy of BIG GIGANTIC’s Dominic Lalli and live drums per Jeremy Salken—the tour will capture BIG GIGANTIC’s explosive live show at every stop. Sandwiched between their headlining dates will also be four shows featuring BIG GIGANTIC supporting their good friend and recent Bonnaroo Superjam collaborator Skrillex in Columbus, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and Amherst, MA.
Prior to the “Touch The Sky Tour,” BIG GIGANTIC will host “ROWDYTOWN III,” their third annual hometown show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. Set for Friday, September 26 and Saturday, September 27, “ROWDYTOWN III” will feature different support lineups for each night, offering fans an even bigger party this year with its expansion to two days. Supporting BIG GIGANTIC on Friday, September 26 will be Brooklyn-based electro-house trio Savoy, Canadian electronic music duo DVBBS, Kansas-based brother duo The Floozies and two tweener sets from producer/DJ Trippy Turtle; Saturday’s lineup will feature the newly reunited Toronto trio The New Deal, hip-hop duo Caked Up, Atlanta-based electronic producer He Robust and another two tweener sets from Trippy Turtle. Members of THE MOTET, the band that Dominic Lalli started in and is considered Colorado “family,” will join BIG GIGANTIC both nights to create a full live band and special experience.
