EDM producer and DJ Skrillex is playing the final club night at Webster Hall this Saturday, August 5th before the venue closes their doors. The closing of Webster Hall in NYC ends a chapter of music history. Skrillex is iconic to the club/EDM music world, making him an obvious choice for the final club night at the venue.
The renowned venue announced earlier this year that they would be shutting their doors August, with Skrillex returning alongside OWSLA’s latest signee Ekali to send them off in style. The decision to shut down comes as part of its sale to AEG and Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment. The venue is set to undergo extensive renovation while it is closed with many fearing it will lose its unique, grimy charm as it will no longer be an independent venue. When it reopens, its booking will be handled by Bowery Presents, which was also acquired by AEG last year.
Whatever the future holds for Webster Hall, Skrillex will be a must see act for the final days of the venue in its grungy glory. A Grammy Award Winning artist, Skrillex is a living legend for EDM. A creative visionary, Skrillex brings his own unique style to his music. He’s a true individual and a pioneer for EDM. His show at Webster Hall is highly anticipated, and will likely be talked about for years to come.
Skrillex has been busy making new music, some of which will be featured in his performance at the emblematic East Village venue. He produced and mixed 8, the eighth studio album by rock band Incubus. Skrillex also released his new song “Would You Ever,” along with the music video last week. The track is a collaboration between Skrillex and singer-songwriter Poo Bear.
Tickets are on sale now for Skrillex’ August 5th performance.
