ill.Gates is bringing the Church of Bass tour to University City for a night of sub pressure and twitchy synth work. The San Francisco-based artist is not only known for his regular tours and releases on labels like Muti Music, Om Records and Made in Glitch, but as an educator with ill.Methodology workshops. Joining him on the tour is Stephan Jacobs, a rising talent from L.A. who recently released his debut album on the Bass Cartel imprint. Get ready for a diverse range of underground EDM stylings.
Sun., Dec. 9, 8 p.m., $13-$15, The Blockley, 3801 Chestnut St., 215-222-1234, theblockley.com.
