The ten best EDM shows of 2012
7. Porter Robinson at the Ogden Theatre, 7/7/12
With his stock rising rapidly, Porter Robinson, who's not even old enough to buy a beer yet, absolutely threw down at the Ogden, displaying some fine mixing skills and admirable prowess in Ableton, making it abundantly clear why his tracks have been garnering so many spins internationally.
6. Skrillex at Red Rocks, 8/9/12
After topping this same list last year, Skrillex returned with a show that wowed at every level and pulled out all the stops with fireworks, a spaceship DJ booth, confetti and plenty of pyrotechnics. Still among the best of the best, Skrillex and his camp clearly know what it takes to put on a great show.
5. Netsky at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, 3/20/12
Netsky (aka Boris Daenen) is a drum and bass master that's found international recognition thanks to his involvement with legendary label Hospital Records. He's played stages at some of the biggest festivals in the world. At Cervantes', he showed us why his music works so well with the dubstep crowds and why drum and bass is not going to anywhere anytime soon.
