The bi-coastal DJ duo PANTyRAiD mashes up electronic dance music with hip-hop and dubstep beats to infiltrate bodies with pulsating grooves. Lauded by URB as a "new classification in club-banging, intelligent dance music," Brooklyn-based Martin Folb and LA scenester Josh Mayer constantly vary their beat with creative accessories such as amplifiers wearing pince-nez. As the lights spill over the crowd, heads bounce to rhythms culled from audio snippets of Jay-Z, Britney, and Lil Jon. PANTyRAiD sweeps the audience into its high-energy vortex, whirling vast instrumentation and auditory trickery into a sound more charged than a herd of stallions forged from molten lava. Opening sets from NiT GriT and ProJect Aspect prime the crowd for the celebratory electronica and random letter capitalization of the main attraction.

Renovated in 1999 to evoke the famous Fillmore in San Francisco and late-century drywall resurgence, Fillmore Auditorium began life in 1907 as the Mammoth Roller Rink and has ushered global stars and dignitaries onto its stage.
The Fillmore Auditorium—founded in 1907 as the Mammoth Roller Rink and renovated in 1999 to evoke the famous Fillmore in San Francisco—has hosted numerous stars and dignitaries on its stage. Although everyone from Marilyn Manson to James Blunt has packed the concert schedule, the space remains an especially popular site for jam bands; Phish mastermind Trey Anastasio christened the revamped venue in 1999 by performing a marathon set.
