Get Fleur de Lit with Getter, G Jones at Republic NOLA This Mardi Gras Weekend

By: Carolyn Heneghan

There’s no better time of year to get lit than the last five-day stretch of Carnival, and no better place this year than Republic’s Fleur de Lit 2018 this weekend. This year’s two-night bass-travaganza features Getter on Friday, February 9, and G Jones on Saturday, February 10, with both single-event and combo tickets still available.

Friday’s headliner Getter is a DJ/producer and rapper out of San Jose, California, who has become a solid player in the dubstep and trap arenas. Since signing with Datsik’s Firepower Records in 2012, Getter has gone on to release a number of singles, Eps, and full-length albums with the likes of Firepower, OWSLA, and Monstercat. He launched his own record label and artist collective, Shred Collective, last year, and shows no signs of slowing his roll anytime soon. Warming the crowd will be Klutch and Kidd Love, showcasing local talent at this littest of Mardi Gras celebrations.

Doors for Friday’s show open at 11:30 p.m., and tickets are still available HERE.

DJ/producer G Jones headlines Saturday night with a special performance in the middle of his b2b tour with Eprom, following the release of their collaborative Acid Desk EP (2017). This bass connoisseur is often compared to the likes of early Bassnectar—an apt comparison, but one that doesn’t fully appreciate G Jones’s own bag of “Mind Tricks” that he alone brings to the table. He’s been dropping tons of unreleased goodies so far on the tour, so you can likely expect more of the same from his Fleur de Lit set. Support on Saturday comes from Oakland DJ/producer Sayer and two local acts who are no stranger to the Republic NOLA stage: sfam and TVBOO.

Doors for Saturday’s show open at 10:30 p.m., and tickets are still available HERE.

And, if you’re looking to get lit and stay lit all weekend long, you can also purchase combo passes for both nights of Fleur de Lit 2018 HERE.
