As SPIN noted in their July/August issue, BIG GIGANTIC ranked among the Top 20 artists with the most festival appearances during the summer season. Their current "Uprising Tour" kicked off with a sold-out show dubbed"Rowdytown" at Red Rocks Amphitheatre September 29, marking their first headlining spot at their famed hometown venue. Justin Olsen fromNITEGUIDE MAGAZINE best described their October 5 show at the House of Blues West Hollywood noting, "If there's one word to describe a Big Gigantic show, it's 'Rowdy.' Multi-tasking between playing drums, saxophone and DJing samples, Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken providean EDM experience that's unique and trendsetting in current times" (November). The 45-date tour has featured over 2/3 of sold-out showsand continues to receive critical acclaim with the press (see below).
