On the heels of its recent qualification for Oscar consideration, the much-talked-about “Avicii: True Stories” documentary is headed to theaters at the end of the year in order to complete its eligibility. Now, fans can begin planning their pilgrimage to the emotional doc’s theater debuts, with a limited theatrical run hitting New York City’s Cinema Village December 21 to 27 and LA’s Laemmle theater December 14 through 20.
The documentary’s week-long stints will fulfill the bare minimum Oscar consideration requirements, and in doing so give a brief window for dance music fans to see the project on the big screen. Providing an intimate glimpse into Avicii’s difficult decision to quit touring and painting a stark picture of the pressures of international superstardom, the Levan Tsikurishvili-directed documentary is rumored to make a return to streaming as well. The film was pulled from Netflix in the wake of the artist’s passing and has since taken on additional meaning and poignancy for Avicii fans and the electronic music community at large. For those who would rather take in “True Stories” in a movie theatre experience, the limited NYC and LA runs may be their only shot.

After months and months of waiting, deadmau5′ new album, W:/2016ALBUM/, is finally here.
Though we’ve been able to hear many, if not all, of these songs over the past year, having them in a single coherent release is a fantastically new way to listen. Compared to a couple of his more recent albums, this album somehow seems more… authentic. Perhaps it’s because this is his first album release on mau5trap, not beholden to the whims of a major label, that he’s been able to do away with some of the typical single releases that he’s had to endure in the past.
Still, tracks like “Let Go” with Grabbitz and “Snowcone” are sure to send fans into a tizzy during a live performance.
And speaking of a live performance, after deadmau5 performed a live rehearsal for fans last night via YouTube, he released a set of tour dates that spanned some of the biggest cities in the country. Unfortunately, your city might be left out – that just means that you’re gonna have to travel. Check out the tour dates below and get tickets when they become available at 10am PST.
