This past weekend, Colorado’s own Big Gigantic shut down Red Rocks season in epic fashion with their fourth coming of Rowdytown. Featuring a slew of the hottest openers and a seemingly endless stream of surprises and new releases, this was truly the most over-the-top Big Gigantic performance to date.

Friday night kicked off with a ton of great openers, as future house sensation JAUZ and tropical house superstar Thomas Jack got the crowd bumping and grooving before Big G. As excitement continued to build, Big Gigantic (Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken) took the stage donning all-white custom Big G baseball jerseys.The Boulder duo was not alone as the The Motet joined in support to add another layer of funky instrumentals to some of Big G’s earliest tunes. Lalli did an excellent job of reproducing some of the groups original songs while layering in their newer material and other festival ready anthems that kept the crowd hyped all night long. One of our favorite parts of the night was their live rendition of Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars ‘ Uptown Funk featuring vocals and instrumentals from The Motet.

Just when everyone thought that Night 1 couldn’t be topped, Saturday rolled around and everyone in attendance had their expectations shattered right from the get go. Vomitstep pioneer SNAILS had the crowd and rocks shaking with his heavy drops and bass-filled heaters. Before the crowd could catch their breath, trap legend RL Grime brought down the house with countless remixes and hip-hop bangers in an all-time great set that will be remembered for long after this past weekend.


And then there was Big G… When it seemed impossible to top their previous night’s performance, the Boulder duo turned things up a notch or two. Their set was a funk-filled ride from start to finish, including a ton of new releases (including another collaboration with SNAILS) and classics revisited. However, the crown jewel of the night was their Notorious B.I.G tribute that consisted of their Notorious Thugs remix and a live performance of Juicy and Hypnotize from a Biggie doppelganger that sent the crowd into an absolute frenzy.


All in all, Big Gigantic proved once again why there are one of the most exciting and unique players in the game right now. We here at Sweaty are already counting down the days until Rowdytown V.
