Seattle, get ready for a head-rattling night of disgusting dubstep and facemelting bass presented by The Bassment and Trapped Productions and sponsored Midnight Raver Clothing. Neumo's Crystal Ballroom is bringing meltalhead turned dubstep master Sluggo to destroy the place on Saturday, February 27th. The mastermind behind Ultragore Recordings brings over a decade of experience behind the decks in addition to a wide variety of hardcore, d&b, hip-hip, and of course, metal to produce some of the most brainshattering breaks your body can handle. Along for the right that night are fellow Ultragore Bay Area bassheads Helicopter Showdown, colloquially known as the "Wu-Tang of dubstep." And much like the Wu, Helicopter Showdown is not one to be fucked with. Armed with an arsenal of collaborations, backed by some of the biggest names in the scene, and a true love of their fans (lots and lot of free downloads), this San Francisco crew is sure to register on the Richter scale. And if that's not enough, the night will also include some of the most insane b2b sets from local favorites Dowlz x Sir Kutz Keano x MONTE x GaugeZ BOERETTA x T-Rips x ENDR Resident Foundation Nightclub DJ Monte has even posted his most recent mix featured on C 89.5's The Vortex just to give you a taste of what to expect. Tier one tickets are already sold out and the $20 tier two price is going fast. Head on over the Nuemo's website to get your tickets now. No promises they'll still be there come Saturday night and you don't want to be standing in the rain listening enviously to the wubs coming from inside. Bring earplugs, even though it sure as hell seems like they won't end up doing much.
