Show Preview: Digitalism at Belly Up, 12/12

Digitalism will be performing at The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach on December 12th, 2011. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased from the venue’s official website.

German DJ duo Digitalism is coming back to San Diego for a live performance at the infamous Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach on Decemeber 12th. So Cal got a taste of the act’s new material this past summer at the HARD Summer festival in Los Angeles, but this will be their first appearance in the San Diego area since an early 2010 performance at Voyeur.

Digitalism has been getting party people around the world excited with a new full length entitled I Love You Dude, featuring the infectious single “Forrest Gump”, which was co-written by The Strokes’ Julian Cassablanca. Digitalism has made a name for themselves with a unique blend of electro-alternative-indie-dance music that combines sincere storytelling lyrical craftsmanship with the excitement and vigor of electronica rhythms.

The two-piece production team comprised of Jens “Jence” Moelle and Ismail “Isi” Tüfekçi has been generating significant buzz for a few years now.  The duo was formed in Hamburg in 2004 and has been making music and playing shows pretty much nonstop ever since. Digitalism burst onto the scene in the U.S. in 2008 when their single “Pogo” was featured in the popular FIFA video game.

The show at Belly Up will undoubtably erupt into a high energy dance party, as the duo will be performing a live set which means some live instrumentation will be added into the mix.

The concert will feature an opening set from Data Romance. Doors are at 8pm, and tickets are $18 in advance.
