Remember when we tipped you off to this event that was conceived and birthed by the collaborative efforts of IndyMojo.com and G9 Collective in August? Well, three months later, the bi-weekly gathering of dubstep fans is still going strong. What began as a showcase for local talent in the EDM subgenre has seen steady growth since its initiation and recently began reaching out to DJ’s from other cities. As of late, Altered Thurzday has proudly hosted distinguished artists such as Kaiten (Cincinnati, OH), Attak (Columbus, OH), and Dr. Higgens (Seattle, WA) in addition to resident dubsteppers Psynapse and Kodama. Next Thurzday is certain to be a historic night for the recurring event, as Indy Mojo and G9 present the biggest and most prominent name yet.
LA dubstep producer Cyberoptix (who was recently signed to Play Me Records) will make his third appearance in the circle city for next week’s installment of Altered Thurzday. Regulars in the local EDM scene will remember his staggering performance at The Red Room for the Bassnectar After Party in April and at Tru for Patchwork in May. As a Tennessee native, Cyberoptix’s work is greatly influenced by southern rap (as well as the many facets of electronic music), resulting in a unique style of different themes, deep sludge bass, and heavy sub. Event organizers have made special arrangements for reinforced sound and are bringing extra bass for this special night. The combination of Altered’s ever-increasing attendance levels and Cyberoptix’s undeniable local fan base is sure to leave The Mousetrap swarming with dubsteppers until the wee hours of the morning.
Don’t know what dubstep music is? Afraid you might not like it? Altered Thurzday is the best way to satisfy your curiosity; The Mousetrap offers a variety of amenities to provide alternative entertainment in the event that you don’t enjoy “the wobbles”. From poi spinners and hoopers in the parking lot to board games and pool in the side room, there’s something for everyone on Thurzdays at The Trap. Killer drink specials ($2 Domestic Pints & $3 Import/Craft Pints), a friendly and diverse crowd, and no cover make this event a no brainer.
