1. The band is playing 2001 dance-punk classic Danse Macabre in its entirety for the very first time for this tour. But the album is only 35 minutes long, so fans can look forward to other goodies, including old favorites and brand new tracks.
2.These guys were making EDM before it was cool—with real instruments to boot. There’s a reason they’ve been remixed by the likes of Paul Oakenfold and Photek. Expect a set that’s more danceable and sexy than anything else you can hear on the Strip that night.
3.The band’s new four-piece lineup promises to keep the sound sleek and tight. Keep your eyes on keyboardist Jacob Thiele, arguably the band’s most compelling member to watch.
4.Because there’s no need to be ashamed of your late ’90s/early ’00s electroclash past. Bust out your eyeliner and skinny tie and hit the dancefloor with pride!
