The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's GrouponLive deal: for $20, you get two general-admission tickets to see Particle with Shwizz and The 45's at Mexicali Live in Teaneck on Thursday, September 22, at 8 p.m. (up to a $37.56 value including fees). Doors open at 6 p.m.
Masters of impromptu rocking, the three-man band of Particle braids funky undertones of bass guitar with energetic keyboards and drums in an electronic-backed jam session. Bolstered by an underground following and a decade of playing together, the band grooves through hits from its album Launchpad with more chemistry than hydrogen and oxygen had on their first date. The seasoned trio, which has performed with Blackalicious and Grateful Dead founder Phil Lesh, will razzle and dazzle Mexicali Club's intimate lounge after openers Shwizz and The 45's warm up the stage with tunes as catchy as chicken pox.
Although food and drink are not included with this Groupon, concertgoers can opt to sit in tableside seats, where they are allowed to nosh on small appetizers, burritos, and fajitas from a menu of Mexi-Cali cuisine as they watch the show. An extensive beer list and drink specials can refresh vocal cords after boisterously singing along or screaming "Encore!" after every sip of hefeweizen.
