Tonight, Friday, September 25, Boulder, CO-based group BIG GIGANTIC will take the stage at the first of two sold-out nights at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. It's been a long road for saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken to "ROWDYTOWN IV," the fourth installment of their massive hometown experience. Their journey is beautifully captured in Dream Big: A Big Gigantic Story, the short documentary film which chronicles the duo's history and how they broke saxophone into dance music alongside a compellingbehind the scenes look at producing last year's Rowdytown show.
Wrote Matt Medved of Billboard (9/24/15), "The Boulder live/electronic outfit--comprised of saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken--is a rollicking, funk-fueled roller coaster in concert, careening through blistering sax breakdowns and snarling synth bass drops while commanding the fervent fandom usually reserved for jam bands. Big Gigantic's scene-straddling balancing act has elevated them to a rare sort of festival staple--equally at home playing 'heads-only' outings like Electric Forest, Shambhala, and Camp Bisco as mainstream festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Ultra Music Festival. They also remain hometown heroes in Colorado, where their annual Rowdytown concert series at the hallowed Red Rocks Amphitheatre-set to kick off this weekend from Sept. 25-26 - has sold out every year since its 2012 debut. The event features prominently in their new documentary, Dream Big: A Big Gigantic Story..." View it now here: https://youtu.be/jWYSPE7JO-8
