Life In Color, "The Worlds Largest Paint Party," is coming to the University of Colorado's Balch Fieldhouse.
CU-Boulder's Program Council is working with event producers Disco Donnie and Life In Color (formerly known as Dayglo) to bring Israeli dubstep producer Borgore to campus on Feb. 16, along with tons of neon, water-soluble body paint.
Borgore -- who has a background as a pianist, saxophonist, death-metal drummer and beat boxer -- has been playing around the world for about three years now, blowing venues away with his super bass-heavy production, provocative rapping and total lack of give-a-fuck.
And that's not to put any words in his mouth. When Borgore was in town last winter, he told the Colorado Daily, "Me as an artist, I'm a hard horse to leash," he said. "I'm just doing whatever the fuck I want."
He also had high praise for dubstep fans here in America and Colorado, saying, "Denver specifically is huge, it's insane."
His latest song release, "Decisions," caught some attention thanks to a vocal contribution from Miley Cyrus (my, she's all grown up now).
Just ahead of Borgore on Feb. 16 will be Seven Lions, whose self-titled EP was a mix of everything from trance, to house, to synth pop, to dubstep. More recently, he signed with Skrillex's OWSLA label and released a more dubstep-dominant EP, Days To Come.
Opening support is coming from a pair of local acts. First up is 18-year-old Las Vegas transplant TYR, followed by Denver hip-hop and dubstep duo Basscrooks, made up of DJ Wushu and DJ Empir3.
As of now, no has been announced for the show, but keep an eye on programcouncil.com or PC's Facebook page for an announcement. In the meantime, pick out a white outfit you're willing to turn colorful. It's going to get messy.
