The best EDM in Denver this weekend
BICEP @ NORAD | SAT, 8/10/13
It's always heartwarming when a childhood friendship grows into something more, which is exactly what happened with Bicep (aka Andy Ferguson and Matt McBriar). Currently based in London, the two spent their early years in Belfast, sneaking into nightclubs as soon as they were old enough to be convincing. Those forays exposed them to some big names spinning top-tier music.
In 2008, when college beckoned them to different parts of the globe, they started a blog called Feel My Bicep as a way to keep in touch with each other and a handful of other school friends. The blog, which began as an exploration of eclectic music from all over the place, now features tunes that are a lot like what Ferguson and McBriar play when they perform together: dance-driven music that skirts the house/techno dividing line and is so seamlessly integrated, you'd think the two men creating it were of one mind. Catch Bicep, which checked in at number 32 on Resident Advisor's list of Top 100 acts this year, this Saturday, August 10, at NORAD with Steofan. (9 p.m., 21+, $10 and up)
