DATAROCK are a festival favorite in North America, Europe, Asia, and South America. Their 2008 performance at Coachella drew twice the amount of people as the tent’s capacity! The band kicked off a world tour in support of “the most extravagant single in history” this month including several outrageous sold out shows at SXSW – be sure to join in on the madness!
