Dynamic. Electrifying. Compelling. These are just a few of the words that have been used to describe BIG GIGANTIC and their powerful live sets at some of the top U.S. festivals this summer.

And now the Boulder, CO-based electronic act—saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken–is set to bring their breakthrough sound of DJ-based music with live instruments to over 45 citiesthroughout North America this fall. Kicking off September 15 in Port Chester, NY during the reopening of The Capitol Theatre and featuring a stop at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA on October 5, the “Uprising Tour” will hit such cities as Tempe, San Diego, Reno, Seattle, Portland, Boise, Tulsa, Little Rock, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Toronto, Baltimore, Richmond, Raleigh, New Orleans and Nashville among many others before wrapping December 1 in Athens, GA. Supporting BIG GIGANTIC will be GRiZ from October 3-November 4 with Adventure Club on select dates, Crizzly from November 5-17 and Ana Sia from November 21-December 1 unless otherwise noted. See below for full list of tour dates with more to be announced soon.

“We are SO STOKED to rage with you on our upcoming fall tour—The UPRISING TOUR!!” says Lalli and Salken. “This time, we’re reaching far and wide, hitting a ton of dates all over the West Coast, Midwest, Northeast and the South. We’ll be hitting some new cities we’ve never been to, as well as some of our favorite stops along the way. Make sure to get the crew together and get your tickets cause we’re bringing the heat with new music, old music, crazy production and a raging dance party every night. We also have our good friends GRiZ, Crizzly and Ana Sia coming out supporting us. Check out this sick video of what we’ll be gettin’ into this fall: It’s gonna be an exciting fall season!!!”
