On August 5th, 2010, IndyMojo and The Mousetrap started a new chapter in the lives of many. They began an EDM (Electronic Dance Music) weekly near Broad Ripple called Altered Thurzdaze. Featuring local DJs that could come and perform the music they loved for a crowd who would appreciate it.
Eventually after popular demand, it was time to start bringing in regional acts as well as national. Cyberoptics was the first national act to take the stage at the Trap. He would be followed by Heyoka, Hulk, Crizzly, Elliot Lipp, Ana Sia, Bare, Sluggo, Dieselboy, Vaski, Phutureprimitive, LTJ Bukem, Elite Force, J. Rabbit, and many more. Out of all of these performances, none have ever cost more than $5.
Matt Ramsey (Promotions Director) gave me a couple of minutes to discuss how he and Jason King (IndyMojo CEO) came up with the idea.
This plan not only gave Indy an outlet to bring some of the biggest names in EDM, it also gave the people of Indy a place to experience the music they love. Whether you are coming to dance the night away or to just kick back and socialize, Altered has you covered. The Mousetrap features 11 beers on tap, most of them being crafts and respectfully good food.
Many of the people who come out on Thursday have been doing so for a long time now. I wanted to ask them about their experiences over these years. We came out last Thursday to interview some the regulars and find out why they come, their favorite performances, and most memorable moments.
A big thank you to all of you for your great memories. I hope we can all make many more in the years to come. 4 MORE YEARS!
Be sure you to come check out the anniversary show featuring Downlink and many of the locals, who we’ve been honored to have perform for us over the years.
