The Crosstown boss will travel the country this summer, playing live sets at select dates.
The DJ/producer will be flogging his newest album, Smoke the Monster Out, which has recently been released by Get Physical. The record is a departure for the techno head, taking in almost every style except those geared for the dance floor. (You check out the video to recent single "Neverending" below for a taste.) Even so, Lazarus has promised that his debut live shows (at select dates) will feature rejiggered versions of the tunes that accentuate beats over headspace.
Of the dates listed below, most will feature Lazarus as a headliner, but we'd be remiss if we didn't highlight the upcoming June 6th date at Avalon, which is part of Lazarus' famed Get Lost series. Performing on that night will be Matthew Dear, M.A.N.D.Y., Nic Fanciulli, Luke Solomon and local stalwarts Droog in what should be the biggest night of the tour.
