Live electronica pioneers The New Deal hit the Orange Peel on Friday. Want to go? Xpress is giving away two guest-list spots for the show. Just e-mail the name of the city where the band hails from to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The band has been playing packed shows for 10 years (just returned from a sold-out tour of Japan). With roots in live house, breakbeat and dub-step, the band continues to evolve, bringing in New Rave and rock ‘n’ roll for a more aggressive sound (so says an email from the band).
From the Orange Peel Web site: “At the vanguard of a new progressive style, the New Deal has become a live touring phenomenon. From packed clubs and theatres across North America, to spellbound receptions during support tours of Herbie Hancock or Trey Anastasio & Page McConnell (Phish), tND are always pushing the limits of the physical show experience. Unique, unforgettable and completely original — the New Deal has captured the attention of music audiences throughout the world. They have appeared at Bonnaroo, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Coachella, San Diego Street Scene, Detroit Electronic Music Festival and dozens of others. Along the way, The New Deal have headlined over 500 shows and continue to inspire audiences of all kinds.”
