Far East Movement

Best known for their electro-hop party hits “Like a G6” and “Girls on the Dancefloor,” this Koreatown, Los Angeles-based quartet sounds like an alcohol-fueled equal-parts mixture of LMFAO and The Beastie Boys. After making the impressive leap from Interscope Records interns to Cherrytree Records signees, the group opened for the likes of Lady Gaga, N*E*R*D and Kelis—experiences that solidified their understanding of the importance of showmanship. Now on their own headlining “Lazer Tag Tour,” FM is ready to take Skytop Supra sneakers, skinny ties and bass-heavy beats to a new level. It might not be serious hip-hop or pretentious electronica, but it’s perfect to chase down a drink—or a bottle. (With Hyper Crush, The Cataracs, Dev, DJ Eye.) NICK FELDMAN
