The electronic kin to the psychedelic jam bands of generations past, EOTO provides an entirely improvised act each night. Always evolving, the duo has adopted dubstep, punk, metal, and more, punctuating performances with whatever it takes to make you get up and dance. Sat 7:30 p.m.

Electronic dance music innovators, college campus mainstays, and longtime Internet favorites, this Youtube-taught DJ duo embarks on its IRL tour.
