First off, happy Wednesday to all the readers who make this blog a blast to write for! Secondly, we got somethin’ big to inform you guys about! The one and only Zedd will be headlining a show both tomorrow (18+) and Friday (19+) at Webster Hall in NYC. Not that he needs much of an introduction, but in the last year or so, Zedd has taken the EDM scene and flipped it on its head. After the unfortunate cancellation of his tour with Lady Gaga (who has a hip injury that restricts her from performing), Zedd is continuing about the country to hit some of the biggest venues with some of his biggest tracks. If you’re still yet to hear his full-length EP Clarity, I’d strongly advise you to do so. Although we give it much praise here at TNJ, allow the amount of charts it’s topped and accolades it’s received to speak for us.

Opening up for the big-man will be both British powerhouse Alex Metric and long-time mainstay Tommie Sunshine. Despite both having their own styles, explaining what you should be expecting from these two might best be done as a tandem. Both Tommie Sunshine and Alex Metric are masters at keeping your feet moving, with club-destroying tracks like Metric’s Rave Weapon (posted below) or Tommie Sunshine’s Barbarians. But despite a huge arsenal of bangers, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear either one bust out some tracks with an old-school influence, especially Tommie Sunshine. If you’re headed to Webster tomorrow or Friday, the best thing to expect from these two would be the unexpected!
