Pendulum forcefully entered the drum ‘n’ bass scene in 2002 with epic, synth-driven anthems that fused the genre’s darker soundscapes with arena-rock flair. The Australian group channeled its successful sound into live-band efforts and struck gold again as it pushed the genre into festival and concert lineups. This appearance promises sounds from their new album and a return to classic Pendulum DJ sets, with vocal support from MC Verse. L.A. Riots will drop their their oft-lauded approach to club-pop fusion on the Bottom Lounge dance floor and the drum ‘n’ bass deck skills of Chicago’s Stunna and Alfonz de la Mota are sure to keep it filled.
