According to their Facebook page, "Excision shows are like no other- a virtual apocalypse of twisting and morphing sounds turn massive crowds into a frenzy, as virtual walls of bass are relentlessly impaled time and time again upon their fragile bodies and ears. Your ears will ring and your eyes will roll into the back of your head as you are suspended in what can only be called a true sensory overload. Bass will rain down from above for hours as Excision’s skills as a DJ and producer shine like an unholy light from the underworld," which sounds too enticing to miss, so pick up some tickets for this show and if you want to experience Excision for two nights in a row, there are special two-day pass prices! $36-$145
