We thought it would be fitting to transmit all the upcoming shows (that we like) so you have a better idea of where the party will be, besides in my pants. Most of the events we're mentioning are thrown in the Mid-Atlantic region and host EDM music of some type.

If you know about a dope event on the horizon send me the link at transmit@darkmattersquad.com and we will check it out. Doesn't matter if its here or there, as long as it's somewhere.

DarkMatter will be hosting some open practices for anyone who is interested; at least a monthly thing. Nothing crazy just plenty of open studio space to get your groove on while we throw on some tunes. This is open to everyone, from the absolute beginner to some of our more skilled friends who may make a surprise visit. 

Open format to teach, learn, boogie, pick your nose, hang out. Gloving, Digits, Finger Styles, Liquid, Popping, Animation, Locking, etc, all styles welcome. Bring your hoop or poi if you want, it's open to everyone and all ages.

It's FREE to come dance and hang, however we ask for a small donation ($5-ish) to help pay for the studio rental. Any additional money collected beyond cost of studio will go towards the next session. 

Hit up the wall if you have questions.
