The Northwest is home to some truly amazing artists, and we’re happy that one of them is KJ Sawka. We talked to KJ back when he was first starting out Impossible Records, and now in less than a year they’ve had eight #1 songs! Whether he’s collaborating with someone, doing his own thing, or holding it down for Pendulum or Destroid, we love watching this guy wail on drums. This time around, he’s teamed up with Mr. Bill for a whole new sound.
Although most of KJ’s Spring tour dates are outside the PNW, we’re “Lucky” that it will all start at the Tacoma Dome on Saturday, March 12. He and Mr. Bill will be playing nine different shows, and we get to help kick things off with them at Lucky. Be sure to catch the set, and give them a proper bass-y send off!
After KJ fulfills his Ultra duties with Pendulum and Destroid (catch the live stream next weekend), he and Mr. Bill will be coming through for one more PNW date in Bend, OR. Each date on the tour will include a collaboration. (Watch the video below for some hints at what’s to come.) All we can tell you for sure is that there will be live drums and funky beats that you don’t want to miss!
