GORDO, formerly known as Carnage, has set his eyes on Pershing Square in Los Angeles for a solo gig on Saturday, August 20. The show is in collaboration with Framework, one of America’s top underground house music event producers.
GORDO continues to rule the West Coast after last week’s TARAKA San Francisco announcement, which sold out in less than two hours. He has plans to turn Los Angeles’ Pershing Square into a tech-house mecca. GORDO will lead attendees on a five-hour dance journey during the event that will be infused with musical influences from his recent European Summer Tour, which saw him perform in cities including Ibiza, Tel Aviv, Athens, Mallorca, Mykonos, Helsinki, Berlin, and Vienna.
As GORDO makes his way to Los Angeles with a jam-packed discography of tech-heavy sounds, Pershing Square will add to its illustrious lineup of performances, which has previously included bands like Hot Since 82, Solomun, Four Tet, and Floating Points.
The park, which is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, will be transformed into the best outdoor sanctuary for dance music. Before Pershing Square closes to undergo renovation, GORDO has the distinction of performing the last show there.
Three months after ending his run as Carnage with a sold-out “Thank You” tour that began at the Avalon Hollywood, moved on to take over New York City, and finished in Houston, Texas, Diamanté Blackmon returns to the city with new vitality, a new sound, a new name, and an entirely different musical experience. GORDO is ready to deliver a legendary and unforgettable performance as he now fuses his ever-expanding enthusiasm for house music with some of Europe’s finest musical inspirations. He just returned from his European Summer Tour.
Pre-sale starts this Thursday, July 28th, at 10 AM PST followed by the General On Sale. Tickets will be available here on Thursday.
