Eight Gigs: Hippie Sabotage
Sat., Feb. 27, 7 p.m., Ace of Spades, $15
Sacto-raised brothers Hippie Sabotage have been at this whole deejaying thing for a minute. But it wasn’t until Ellie Goulding got ahold of their remix of Tove Lo’s “Habits (Stay High)” in 2014 and posted it on her Instagram that the rest of the world started to notice they were up to something special. Now the duo is stopping through its hometown on an extensive national tour in support of Providence, which dropped on February 5. Don’t let the curious Billabong-vibe of the cover art fool you—the beats are as complex and addicting as ever, and the brothers seemed poised to hit the big stage. 1417 R Street, www.hippiesabotage.com.
