The DJ Shadow Giveaway
The last time DJ Shadow was in Pittsburgh was during the summer of 2011 for Identity Festival at First Niagara Pavilion. For a lot of us, that barely qualifies as a legit DJ Shadow gig since you had to put up with swarms of crappy music to even get a taste of the good stuff. But Shadow did indeed deliver that night, dropping a powerhouse set that his fans have come to grow fond of, with his frequent sampling and underground hip-hop style. Most recently, he was the topic of controversy at a Miami night club that kicked him off the decks in the middle of his set, realizing much too late what a travesty they had committed and offering a half-assed apology that had the internet reeling with support of trendsetting DJs such as Shadow. Last month he landed a spot on Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Debut Albums of All Time” list for his first full-length release, Endtroducing.
Check out his famed South Beach set below.
It’s an exciting time to be DJ Shadow, and we’re lucky to have him stopping by Pittsburgh for a gig on April 12th at Altar Bar for his 2013 “All Bases Covered” tour.
