Dirtwire Live at the Galactic Center

Nov 01, 2016 07:03PM


Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a swamptronic space cowboy sound with traditional instrumentation, global percussion and electronic soundscapes. The band will perform from 9 to 10 p.m., November 16, at the Galactic Center, in Tucson. Comprised of multi-instrumentalists David Satori and Evan Fraser, each performance brings the audience to a mysterious crossroads at an imaginative and seductive moment in time. The result is a rebirth of Americana and beacon for a post-millennial return to downhome goodness.

The Dirtwire duo met at the California Institute of the Arts while studying World Music Composition. Both members of other successful music projects—Satori as part of the sensational electronic dynamo group Beats Antique and Fraser at the helm of world groove bands Hamsa Lila and Stellamara—their unique chemistry led to a continued musical friendship throughout the years. In 2012, Satori and Fraser released the debut Dirtwire album, attracting everyone from electronic dance junkies to traditional world and roots music toe-tappers. With their first self-titled release, Dirtwire was introduced to the world and a new family was founded.

Satori and Fraser get down as Dirtwire at select theater and festival stages across the U.S. and have appeared at festivals including Coachella, Sonic Bloom, Lucidity, Lightning in a Bottle, Rootwire, Oregon Country Fair, Symbiosis and more.

Cost: $15/advance, $20/door. Purchase advance tickets at Location: Galactic Center, 35 E. Toole Ave., Tucson. For more information, visit
