BEATS AND LIFE, WITHOUT THE RHYMES

No disrespect to Griz, the rising DJ who supplements his bass-heavy sets with 
surprise riffs on his alto saxophone, but dubstep-meets-blank ceased being an 
interesting sales pitch shortly after Taylor Swift penciled in country with her pop-oriented “I Knew You Were Trouble.” 
Fortunately, A Tribe Called Red play club sounds that stretch well beyond festival-ready dubstep, and they’ve been mixing those sounds with more traditional First Nations chants and drums since Swift was singing about sparks flying and speaking now. The Ottawa trio refers to this sound by the portmanteau “powow-step,” and their “Electric Pow Wow Mini Mix” will be perfect for both pre-gaming this show and convincing your friends that they should come, too.
