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.

Dark Matter checked out this new EDM weekly last week.  If you are looking for a spot to get down and practice to House Music, Funk, Hip-Hop, Electro, Breaks, Dub-Step and mas!, while kicking back with some good drink specials and having your dome piece pleasantly surprised by an impeccable sound system, M-Effin Thursdays is worth giving a try. This free weekly is a nice dose of multiple genres of EDM music, fused with a great selection of party jams that's going to bring out the James Brown in you.

Carl Sagan once said "The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it, but the way the atoms are put together. The cosmos is also within us. We're made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself". Perhaps the answers to life's riddles lie upward. Connect to the interstellar landscape that lies within. Connect to the beat of the bass. Lifting off from the UK, Star Slinger combines soul and hip-hop influences to create an eclectic dance experience, with The Hood Internet rocking the remix/mashup game from all sounds mainstream to indie-rock. And even more music, lights and visuals to keep you earthlings bumpin'. Not for the weak hearted.

Artists:

  • STAR SLINGER (starslinger.net)
  • THE HOOD INTERNET (thehoodinternet.com)
  • CHRISSY MURDERBOT (murderbot.com)
