If you’re one of those people who think electronica is nothing more than computer programming, look no further than Big Gigantic. The Colorado-based duo is composed of two veteran musicians (bandleader Dominic Lalli has a master’s degree in jazz from the Manhattan School of Music), who bring live saxophone, drums and vocals to Big G’s trademark funky electronics. This is going to be a party you won’t want to miss.
9 pm, 2/26-27. $32 ($29.50 adv.).
press release: Big Gigantic has announced the winter leg of their Brighter Future Tour in support of their latest album, Brighter Future. A portion of every ticket sold will be donated to A Big Gigantic Difference Foundation, the nonprofit founded by Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken, and will benefit the foundation's 2017 charity project. Giving back to communities has always been a priority of Big Gigantic, who established the nonprofit with a mission to spread positivity and enact change. Together with their incredible fans, #ABigGiganticDifference initiative has collected and donated tens of thousands of dollars, school supplies, food and other items to those in need across the US.

The saxophonist/producer Dom has a Master's degree in jazz and is the reason why they bring their sax and drums on stage with live vocals. They have tens of millions of streams online (+ syncs for Apple, MLB, NBA, ABC Comedy, TNT Basketball, Wimbledon and Fox's "Empire") and play to huge crowds of 50,000 regularly.
"The Little Things" was played between innings at the World Series and they used it in their pre-roll. Apple just used it in the Macbook Pro announce too. After the Apple video the song shot to #1 on iTunes Dance, to date it has sold more than 30,000 copies (big for dance artists with no label). "All Of Me" is getting over 1 million plays weekly without a radio push.
