Seattle's Truckasauras is hitting I-5 this month to bring their retro-future techno sound (plus videos) to cities up and down the west coast.
Truckasauras - whom Pitchfork calls "the future of techno" - has a strong Northwest following, due to their lo-fi, bass-thumping, gameboy-tweaking awesomely rad sound accompanied by amusing WWF and blow-em-up video clips.
"Truckasaurus is a raw and powerful experience to the point of sensory overload," said TIG's Mike Mess about the Truckasauras set at the 2008 Capitol Hill Block Party.
