The Bloody Beetroots will be at Ft.Lauderdale’s Revolution Live on May 15th to kick off their Chaos & Confusion tour.

Famous for their influential electro-house sound and masks from the famous “Spider-Man” villain Venom, The Bloody Beetroots have been a staple in many electronic music festivals.

The group started in late 2006 with the Italian Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo at the helm. Initially a classically trained musician, Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo was eventually influenced by punk and electronic music that lead him to create The Bloody Beetroots.

Putting out various remixes and extended plays throughout the late 2000s, The Bloody Beetroots were on the forefront of the electro-house sound that is now highly represented in popular music and festivals around the world. Their peak was between 2008-2010 after they were signed to Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records label and put out the tracks Cornelius and Warp 1.9.

The track Cornelius encapsulated the dark hard-hitting electronic sound that was bustling in the underground scene, and their most popular song Warp 1.9 is still instantly recognized by electronic music fans worldwide for its eerie clock introduction and the now infamous drop. The video for Warp has over 27 million views and DJs have continued to play it since its release in 2009.

 

Although the group has seen a slight shift from their electro-house sound in recent years, they have continued to put out new music that includes features from The Cool Kids, Dennis Lyxzén, and Sir Paul McCartney.

For their Chaos & Confusion tour, The Bloody Beetroots are abandoning their DJ decks and instead playing guitars, synthesizers, drums and more to recreate their loud punk and electronic sound live. The intimate and loud Revolution Live seems like it will be an excellent venue for the high energy Bloody Beetroots.

Early bird tickets for the concert are still available for $20 (without fees) with tickets going up to $30 the day of the show. Tickets may be purchased on Ticketmaster and at the box office of Revolution Live. Doors will open at 8:30pm for the 18 & over show, and it will have American DJ Jayceeoh as an opening act.
