(Guest post by Alex Pacheco.) On Friday, August 16 Electro Producer Alex Botwin, better known for his stage name Paper Diamond, will be playing San Francisco’s 1015 Folsom Nightclub along with a special live performance by rapper Roach Gigz. Coming off a successful run of summer festival appearances that included a debut at Bonnaroo, The Governors Ball, as well as HARD Summer Fest a little over a week ago in Los Angeles, the Colorado-based musician has decided to forego taking a break from the road before embarking on a fall tour hitting 31 cities across North America with dubstep juggernaut Zeds Dead. With three rooms of music that will feature a total of eight artists, this event will no doubt satisfy the bass-heavy musical palates of any hip hop or EDM fan. And of course, the crown jewel will be the eclectically styled beats of Paper Diamond himself, which will be sure to include many tracks off his brand new EP, Paragon.
