Get Ready for the [SCREECHING NOISE THEN PERSON YELLING] of Skrillex, Coming to Tucson

While people seem to fall on one side or another of the love/hate dichotomy with his music, the fact that Skrillex is coming to Tucson is unquestionably a big deal, since the guy can headline festivals and play big venues anywhere in the country.

This might only be interesting to me, but when I was at Coachella this year watching Pharrell's set, just as Jay Z came out to do his verse from "Frontin'," some shirtless dude next to me said to his friend "We gotta go, Skrillex is going on in an hour." Those dudes skipped out on seeing one of the biggest music superstars of the last decade to see Skrillex and they weren't the only ones. Seems like that says something about his level of fame, maybe.

So, attention people who enjoy noisey EDM with big drops and such, Skrillex is coming to AVA on Tuesday, October 7. Strangely, you will need to be over 16 to attend according to the event's website. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 15, although you can get access to some presale if you have an American Express card. No details on prices as of yet.

DJ Mustard (the guy behind seemingly every song on Hot 98.3's playlist right now), Branchez and David Heartbreak open the show.
