On Thursday night, Excision's Executioner tour played at the House of Blues along with supporting DJ/Producers Dirtyphonics and IllGates.

Both IllGates and Dirtyphonics laid it down hard with a mixture of bro step, dubstep, and glitch. Sadly, drum and bass was missing from the Dirtyphonics repertoire, but not surprising due to the young dubstep crowd. They always bring it no matter what kind of venue they are playing and are extremely crowd friendly, which his refreshing, as lots of acts seem to forget that there are humans out in the audience.

Excision's DJ bunker was back: 28 foot wide, 15 foot tall mammoth video and lighting installation known as The Executioner. This custom crafted stage production was specifically designed for Excision’s 3D video mapped visual sequences as he DJ's both music and video live on stage. Fully recharged from his last tour and video mapping graphics switched out, this audio video monstrosity is equipped with various sliding panels and pneumatics to hide lasers, fog machines, an extensively upgraded lighting system.

Sadly, it did not appear to actually be finished, as Excision’s interior DJ booth was extremely bare and it was noticeable that it was plywood and 2x4s where lots of LEDs could have been, adding to his robot controller image.

Regardless of this, it was an awesome center piece to a well thought out and planned show.

House of Blues was a great venue with just enough of an 18+ crowd to pack the place and affordable drinks. The place shook when the sound got turned up as Excision’s space ship landed and started spreading some bass doom. Everything is better with bass, right?
