The “PillowTalk” tour reaches Asheville

PANTyRAiD is not, despite its name, a summer camp prank. The electronic producer & DJ duo is Josh Mayer and Martin Folb, aka Ooah (from The Glitch Mob) and MartyParty, respectively.

The two began collaborating in 2008. “Each spring, the duo sets off on a new musical journey and revives their yearly PANTyRAiDs at sold-out venues across the nation,” says Mayer and Folb’s bio. “The first glimpse of the PANTyRAiD vision was realized while worshiping the sun at Marty’s vacation home in Costa Rica. Recharging from packed tour schedules and hectic work life, the retrospective visit would be the catalyst for a new experience in a flourishing electronic music scene.”

PANTyRAiD’s most recent album, PillowTalk, was released in May. Their tour brings them to The Orange Peel on Saturday, Aug. 3. 9 p.m.,  $20 advance/$25 day of show.
