Tel Aviv electro-wiz Borgore's involvement in Israeli deathcore band Shabira led the drummer to explore and excel at a popular type of EDM that fashions itself around a dubstep beat philosophy and heavy metal musical aesthetics. The dude plays the historic El Rey Theater for a special New Year's Eve gig on Thursday, Dec. 31.

Borgore self-describes his current sonic undertakings as "gorestep"; it's a brand of music that's provocative, entrancing and bloody well danceable. His music lays on heavy layers of bass, confounding snatches of melody and turned-on and twisted rhythmic monstrosities to create an atmosphere that is at once disarming and compelling; you wanna dance like hell, but are concerned that you will explode in all the cool chaos if you do. Put your fears to rest; check out this awesomely electric demonstration of youth, life and radical tuneage as the the year 2016 beckons. This procession toward the new will cost 21+ movers and shakers $30. It begins at 9pm. El Rey Theater • Thu Dec 31 • 9pm • $30 • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar
