Three Not-to-Be-Missed Concerts this Summer

Dwayne Dopsie & the Zydeco Hellraisers are coming to Tahoe Donner this summer. I guarantee this party will rock!

A.Skillz @ The Human Disco Ball Experiment

Late one night at The Bounce (see below) a few years back, somewhere in between the constant, ever-unchanging house beat and dirty dubstep, an amazing sound came from the speakers - a ridiculously fun mix of funk, soul, hip-hop, dub-step, and breaks, all sliced, mashed, and cut together. I don't think I have danced as hard since, and so became my obsession with A.Skillz, who is headlining The Human Disco Ball Experiment, which alone sounds both bizarre and awesome.

Dwayne Dopsie and The Zydeco Hellraisers

Years ago I was in New Orleans for the Final Four and randomly found myself at a bar shaking it to the most fantastic, dance-able zydeco music I'd ever heard - Dwayne Dopsie and the Zydeco Hellraisers. They were so much fun we came back the next night, bought their CD, and became certified groupies. As it turns out, they're coming to Tahoe Donner's Summer Concert on the Green! Yep, this will be a seriously fun party.

Saturday, July 27th

The Bounce

And if you really want to get your party on, head up to Twain for the Bounce Festival June 20th-24th. This year the festival has a beautiful new location on the Feather River, and while I'll miss the weirdness of little Beldon Town, I'm excited to check out the new digs. It's a pretty sick line up, headlined by Beats Antique, but my picks for not-to-miss artists are Lowriderz, Bart & Baker, Love & Light, David Starfire, and of course all our favorite local Reno/Tahoe DJs.

June 20th – June 24th
Twain, Ca
Tickets $160 (worth it)
Over 100 DJs and artists
