    This is where you'll find most of the bros. Specially in the following: Swedish House Mafia, Dastik, SebatiAn, Kaskade, David Guetta, Break Bot, Justice, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Nero, Fluxx Pavilion, Dada Life, and Noisia.
    As someone who's been listening to DJ Shadow since 1996 and M83 since 2005, I find the notion that they're associated with bros to be ... bizarre.

    you should read the deftones for 2012 thread. many fans lost it when I suggested that bros enjoy deftones. Which they do.

    And you're right, bros enjoy Deftones. A bro got his ass beat for trying to pull off his bro shit. At an EDM event no one cares because well, we're there to have a good time; but a Deftones concert along with Dillinger Escape plan... a bro is bound to get his ass kicked if they pull that broseph attitude.

    Was that at Fox Pomona? I was at that show, and now I know why I felt underwhelmed. Dilliger Escape Plan was better at Coachella.

    You can't avoid it so embrace it. Play some beer pong with your camp neighbors. Scream out "Coachella!!" really loud randomly. Drink a Bud Lime. High five and fist bump the bros. Dance to Justice with them when they're blaring it at 4am through their cheap ipod portable speakers in the campsite. Do some fist bumps. Its your time to cut lose and have an awesome time, so just go with the flow.
    You're such a bro.

    It was at the Amphitheater in Mesa, Az.

    I'm not a huge fan of Dillinger Escape Plan. I thought they were going to suck majorly since their cd's aren't anything special but damn did they play good. They actually impressed me very much and realized that Dillinger Escape Plan sucks on cd but kicks ass live and is a band that's worth watching.

    I know it does sound a bit bizzare hence the second statement: "This is where you'll find most of the bros". I know by the end of this year M83 will be broed out.

    Yeah, lots of people I know who listen to m83 have no background in shoegazey dream popy indie rocky music at all. It's very bizarre indeed.

    Don't get me wrong, there's a couple of djs on that list that are definitely worth watching. Miike Snow is one of them, seen the dj set twice and they never cease to amaze. The whole point of my post was to guide OP away from Bros. Then again; those bro's are all over the place. You can be enjoying a dj and all the sudden a bro rush comes and tramples every one like a heard of cows.

    Not really. They probably just like "that one song" from the radio

    I was blown away by M83 when I saw them in ('05? '06? can't remember); I came home and bought albums by them and Matmos. But I come at it from the dreampop side; more shoegazy stuff tends to leave me bored, and I avoided MBV when they played.

    (OTOH, We Were Promised Jetpacks was pretty cool).
