Long before electronic music gave birth to the lush synthwave and visually stunning EDM scenes of today, Ken Jordan and Scott Kirkland of Crystal Method were turning big beat into a recognizable format with their music featured in a ton of TV shows, movies, video games, and commercials all through the 90s and 00s. Kirkland is still keeping the beat alive with both an ambitious and well-received album and tour that will fill the Cabooze with dark electronic sounds and fans.
