Saturday, November 12 – Zeds Dead provided a jam-packed Texas Music Theater crowd with eargasms through spine-tingling mixes, bass and beats.
Dub-step duo Zeds Dead was formed in 2009 as the second collaboration of DC and Hooks from Toronto, ON. The duo has been on their 2011 Graveyard Tour since September and will continue touring through December, playing shows all over the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
The duo began collaborating under the name of Mass Productions in 2004, and released Fresh Beetz, an independent album, in 2007. No other albums were released until the duo reunited as Zeds Dead
Texas Music Theater sold out before Zeds Dead took the stage around midnight. The venue was crowded with rage-faced people covered in sweat and equipped with glow-sticks.
“The crowd charges me up; it’s a circus atmosphere,” said Vinny Bean, stage manager for Texas Music Theater. “I’m old school and it reminds me of a Grateful Dead show for this generation.”
Zeds Dead euphonically mixed a diversity of genres from the likes of Radiohead, Snoop Dogg, and others with face-melting bass into the 24 18-inch subwoofers, provided by BassMaxx.
Mad Classy, resident dub-step group at Austin’s Barcelona night club, got the crowd pumped up before Zeds Dead’s set. Grant Montagne, Texas State’s own, opened the show on a whim after the original opener dropped out.
Zeds Dead’s Graveyard Tour was brought to San Marcos courtesy of AfterDark Entertainment and ScoreMore Shows.
Keep your ears and eyes peeled kids, because AfterDark and ScoreMore, along with C3 Concerts and Polaris Presents have several more face-melters lined up at Texas Music Theater. The legendary Mimosa is scheduled for his first performance in San Marcos at TMT on December 2.
