THE 411 ON BIG DATA: ALAN WILKIS PROCESSES HIS NEW FOUND SUCCESS

Currently sitting at the top of Billboard’s Alternative chart with their all over the airwaves single “Dangerous,” Big Data have suddenly found themselves riding a massive “joywave” of success as they gear up to play Day 2 of SSMF 2014.

But before taking the stage in the middle of The Sunset Strip, band leader Alan Wilkis lays down a few do’s and don’ts of festival etiquette, recalls vivid childhood memories of being frightened by Jane’s Addiction and explains how Big Data’s new video is giving some fans a “confused boner.”

 

What other bands at this year’s Sunset Strip Music Festival are you most looking forward to checking out?

There are so many great ones… Excited to see Jane's Addiction, Big Freedia, Mayer Hawthorne, also Fenech-Soler – I did a remix for those guys a few years ago.

THE VIPER ROOM IS FINALLY LEGAL! CELEBRATING 21 YEARS AS A LANDMARK ON THE SUNSET STRIP.

Opening its doors on August 14, 1993 with a performance by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the intensely intimate, 200 capacity Viper Room has hosted thousands of legendary, “arena-sized” shows in its storied 21 year history.  To name a few: Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Oasis, Hunter S. Thompson, Green Day, Muse, Kings of Leon, Queens of the Stone Age, The Strokes, Smashing Pumpkins, the list goes on...

Offering music fans the chance to see mega-bands like these in a tiny club setting is what The Viper Room has become known for not only in industry circles but worldwide.  And for countless musicians, The Viper stage – given this legacy – holds a sort of reverent ethereal magic not found in any other room.
