New Event Alert: Big Gigantic to Play Fillmore PA February 18th
On Saturday, February 18th, the “city of brotherly love” will welcome none other than Big Gigantic to the stage of The Fillmore.
The name “Big Gigantic” might and rightfully should sound familiar: the Boulder, Colorado duo—formed by Dominic Lalli, the group’s saxophonist/producer, and Jeremy Salken, the group’s drummer—enjoyed a banner year in 2016 with the release of their sixth studio album, “Brighter Future,” released on August 26, 2016. The album featured several noteworthy features, calling on the talent of rapper Waka Flocka Flame and GRiZ, as well as Rozes and Logic on the album’s hit single, “All Of Me.” The track earns more than 1 million weekly plays without a radio push, a statistic that is less of a statistic and more of a testament to Big Gigantic’s reach.
Big Gigantic’s music has long thrived in perhaps the most unexpected of places. The duo’s song, “The Little Things,” released in March of 2016 as the first single from “Brighter Future,” could be heard between innings at the World Series, and then again in Apple’s most recent MacBook Pro commercial. Much of Big Gigantic’s mystique arises from the group’s lack of a label, meaning that the duo’s musical work is self produced, making their success thus far a marvel of diligence and perseverance.
The hard work and efforts of Big Gigantic components, Lalli and Salken has secured the hip hop jazz group a slot on the newly announced 2017 Coachella lineup, a lineup rife with prominent artists including the likes of Radiohead and Beyoncé. Bearing a costly ticket price, Big Gigantic fans need not venture to Cali to hear the duo’s unique blend of electronic beats, saxophone, and drums. Rather, those interested can secure tickets to the show at the iconic PA venue for $30.50 plus tax online—a steal considering the group’s immeasurable sense of talent. Openers for Big Gigantic include The Floozies and “Doses and Mimosas” hit makers, Cherub. The show is set to begin at 7 PM.
The Fillmore show is certainly not one to miss, given its status as one of 2017’s most looked forward to smaller shows. While Big Gigantic frequently collaborates—most often at summer music festivals—with GRiZ and Gramatik to form the powerhouse trio, “Big Grizmatik,” the opportunity to catch Big Gigantic in the glory of their duo is indeed an opportunity to seize. To not save the date for February 18th would certainly be a mistake—a big, gigantic one, that is.
