Being one of the most recent Red Rocks shows to be postponed until 2021 due to COVID-19, this is always two nights for the books. First showing Colorado their 3D production in 2018, it was instantly a hit. Both members, Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken, later took their 3D production on tour in celebration with their new album until it was cut short. That tour would have ended here in Colorado for two insane nights at Red Rocks, of course in 3D of course.
Free Your Mind, a new album by Big Gigantic was released earlier this year. Featuring a huge variety of tunes with features by artists we have and have not seen before with the Big Gigantic duo. Featuring 13 songs on the album there’s a song for everybody. Their new tour, which was postponed until 2021, will be showcasing their new album while also showing the country their mind blowing 3D production. Below are a few pictures from Rowdytown 2019!
Featuring pictures from night one and night two above, these lineups were stacked. From Birocratic, The Funk Hunters and Two Friends the first night to ilo ilo, Flamingosis and Kasbo the second night it was all vibes. Bringing out special guests throughout both nights was also happening a great amount. Now let’s finally talk about the 3D production. Honest opinion, some of the best production to ever be seen. Also no it dose’nt give you motion sickness like the movies, the visuals tell a story matching up perfectly with their music. That’s all we’ll say, you’ll have to check them out on tour in 2021. Until then go listen to their new album linked below!
One of the most beloved Red Rocks shows of the season took place in the beautiful city of Morrison this past weekend. This was the spectacular second 3D rendition of Big Gigantic’s very own “Rowdytown” event. The annual two-day run is one of Colorado’s most dear events to all funk and electronica lovers. Across the state and even beyond, the weekend performances certainly did not disappoint. In brief, Big Gigantic, the Boulder-born duo, left Red Rocks buzzing this weekend. Together they brought two very unique and incredible performances, paired with out of this world visuals, colors and lighting.
Day 1 Big Gigantic Bring Rowdytown with a Bang
The first night fell on Friday, September 27th. However, the Saturday performance held a completely different and unique vibe than the Friday performance did. Birocratic, The Funk Hunters, and Two Friends opened up for Big G’s night 1. On the other hand, ilo ilo, Flamingosis, and the widely-loved Swedish producer Kasbo gave incredibly beautiful and melodic-based performances on Saturday night.
Day 2 Closes out the Show with a More Melodic Feel
It felt as if the first night was more energetic, where Big Gigantic came out with a bang. However, the second day performances were nothing short of an unforgettable experience. Coupled with an amazing direct opening set from Kasbo, second day brought more melodic and chill feelings throughout the entire crowd. The crowd fell absolutely silent to listen and feel the lower frequencies of the ambiance he brought. All in all, night two was the performance which sold out of the two nights. The environment was packed with excited voices buzzing around the entire night’s performances to come. All in all, it was a truly beautiful experience for music lovers of all types to enjoy many different genres, styles and sounds of music within one night.
Big Gigantic Crushing it for the 8th Time
When Big Gigantic brings out their instruments, there is an unparalleled energy within the crowd for both nights. Dominic Lalli crushes it on saxophone and Jeremy Salken on drums. For this reason, two make an inseparable duo, with beats to make even the shyest of dancers go crazy. All things considered, pairing live instrumentation with the funkiest of electronic beats is what Big G (or their fans, Little G’s) know and love best.
Some of the most beloved tracks the duo played were more notorious ones. However, they also made sure to cover some songs and play some music we never heard before. This created a constantly flowing, constantly moving performance which was one to never forget! The duo dropped crowd favorites, such as “All Of Me,” featuring rapper Logic and Rozes which had the entire crowd singing. Coupled with this were some of their lesser known tracks, such as their track featured with NGHTMRE, “Like That.” The entire night was filled with energetic beats and funky tunes which lasted for hours.

Rowdytown overall was an incredible experience that you have to see to experience and witness live. Not to mention, their smooth live performance and ability to conquer the live instruments. They play paired with some awesome sounding electronic synths. These sounds truly makes for a unique and one-of-a-kind live electronic experience. To conclude, there is no doubt why Big Gigantic is one of the larger names of artists in Colorado.Coupled with being locals, this only makes them more near and dear to our hearts.
