High Street Billiards and Cue, now named Tunez and Cue, is back in business, and tonight the location is kicking off its new life with an electronic show sure to keep the bass thumpin’ and bodies bumpin’ all night.
Featuring renowned electronic dance music artists Nerd Rage, Alpha Data, Twin Syndrome, Iso Raw and Clintonics, the show promises to provide the perfect mid-week release.
Dubbed "The BASSment Party," tonight’s event will serve as the first musical event hosted at Tunez and Cue, and event promoter Adam Payne sees it as a great way to get the venue back on track.
"If you’re a fan of bass music, especially dubstep, then the BASSment party is for you," Payne said. "Nerd Rage is one of the most talked-about names in the industry, and Alpha Data has already built a Morgantown following by opening for a sold-out Boombox show last semester."
Event headliner Devin Spears, better known by his disc jockey alias Nerd Rage, is recognized for his aggressive, loud and in-your-face musical stylings. A man who is always open to change and experimentation, Nerd Rage’s sound is defined as a mix of moombahton and dubstep and has led to widespread acclaim.
Jonathan Davis, frontman for the hugely popular nu metal group Korn, listed Nerd Rage’s "Dark Crystal" as one of his top-five favorite Electronic Dance Music songs in a piece for Revolver magazine.
His first single, "Real Life," cracked popular EDM and DJ website Beatport’s "Top 10 Must-Hear Dubstep Tracks."
Also playing tonight is third-year law student James Ristvedt’s dubstep-producing alter-ego, Alpha Data.
Known for his "glitch hop" style, Alpha Data has amassed over 1,000 followers on popular music hosting website soundcloud.com and has shared the stage with EDM standout producers Flux Pavilion, Shpongle, Excision and others.
Alpha Data has shown an aptitude for multiple genres throughout his career, and this results in an EDM style that has something in store for nearly everyone.
Rounding out the evening nicely is the location itself. At 226 High St., Tunez and Cue is one of the most underrated clubs in town.
Previously under the simple name "The Cue," Tunez and Cue features a comfy lounge area, multiple billiards tables and several flat-screen televisions to enjoy over a beer or a friendly game of pool.
The venue truly has everything one can need, and it is as criminally underrated a spot as one will find in this town.
Tonight’s event affords the perfect opportunity to come out and experience this atmosphere firsthand, so come early and be ready to have your chest ripped open by bass lines and groovy electronic passages.
The event has a $5 cover charge for men and is free for ladies.
Festivities will begin at 9 p.m.
