Thursday, December 5th
SkiiTour at the Top Hat
Fusing two fresh-off-the-mountain electronic music addicts, Tim and Dave together create 12 feet and 350 pounds of turbo-funk-boosted, snowsuit-donning man flesh. Hailing from the world famous ski town of Whistler, this dynamic duo loves shredding fresh powder almost as much as they love smashing out hit-records in the studio.
In the spring of 2016, they started up their own record label, Double Black Records. Last spring ‘Bad Behaviour’ was premiered on Diplo & Friends (BBC Radio 1) and subsequently charted on Beatport after being released by Fool’s Gold Records. They started 2019 with a bang holding onto the #1 song on Beatport Electro House charts with “Redlight” for 5 straight weeks.

Motorhome at the Top Hat
Missoula rockers Motorhome are celebrating the release of their new self titled album! Fellow Zootown rockers Arrowleaf and Wrinkles will both play opening sets as well.
Reconstituted from the primordial pitch of late-wave noisepop, the music of Motorhome takes you back and drives you forward like a nitrous-fueled Winnebago that’s dropped its muffler.
