Steve Aoki @ The Boulder Theater | 2/2/11

The man behind Dim Mak Records who discovered artists like Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, The Gossip, and The Klaxons also is the same man behind electro anthems like "WARP 1.9" and "I'M IN THE HOUSE" ft Will.I.Am of the Black Eyed Peas. He wears many hats-label owner, club promoter, music producer, fashion designer-however, he is best known for his sensory-deafening DJ sets which have won such accolades as "Best DJ of the Year" and "Best Party Rocker DJ" from Paper Magazine, BPM Magazine, and the Ibiza Awards.

It goes without saying but nearly everyone has seen Steve Aoki's name by 2010. This year he's already released collaborations with Armand Van Helden (Brrrat), Sidney Samson (Wake Up Call), Afrojack (No Beef), Laidback Luke & Lil' Jon (Turbulence), not to mention his hardcore side project with the Bloody Beetroots under the guise RIFOKI. If that wasn't enough, his notoriously epic remix for Kid Cudi's "Pursuit of Happiness" was recently picked up by Vitamin Water as the theme song behind all of its nationwide TV ads.

A key figure in the rejuvenated US dance music scene, Steve Aoki has quickly become the most recognizable DJ in America by both the underground and mainstream audiences.

Sloppy Roast Beef (Band of the Month - June, 2005)

Sloppy Roast Beef- for the Grateful Web

Sloppy Roast Beef was formed in the summer of 2002 when six close friends decided to take their guitar driven original rock and roll sound out of the basement and into the public eye.

At the time of "The Beef's" inception, three of the band's members, A.J. Davidson, Michael Moore, and Zac Davidson, were playing with the group "Jo Digs" while the other three members, Andrew Teague, Nick Edwards, and Derek Lewis, played in the band known as "Sweet Automatic".

While both former bands achieved moderate local success in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a yearning still remained among band members to create a sound that not only accented strong songwriting and musicianship but that was also authentic to the South.

The end result would be a collaboration of original music that has been compared to a wide variety of rock and roll styles ranging from bands of the 1970's such as The Doobie Brothers, Santana, and the Allman Bros. to the more modern jam band styles of Widespread Panic, Gov't Mule, and MOE.

Stuck in the middle of a music era where image, piracy, and "Bling Bling" have become industry norms, Sloppy Roast Beef has continued to do what they love the most…
