Dubstep lovers will want to be at 4th and B when it presents “#Addicted to Dub,” a concert welcoming Dub FX with Flower Fairy, Dnareophobe, and Starfightez to their location at 345 B St. in downtown.

FX, a native of Australia whose real name is Benjamin Stanford, first gained attention as a street performer.

His live performances incorporate his trademarks which include using his own voice, aided only by the use of live looper and effect pedals, to recreate sounds that are reminiscent of the usual dubstep genre. His voice provides all of the vocals, beats and raps.

His promotion has been done completely independent of traditional advertising, using only his live performances, word of mouth, the availability of free samples, and the use of the internet and social networking to gain notoriety.

He combines influences from various genres, including hip-hop and reggae, while integrating drum and bass rhythms.  Fairy, Stanford’s fiancee, will be performing alongside him.

Doors open at 9 p.m. and the concert will begin at 10 p.m.

General admission standing tickets and reserved seating tickets are $15. They can be purchased at the 4th and B box office or by visiting www.4thandbevents.com.
