Downtown Glendale — Black Asteroid is coming to Glendale on July 4th. Bryan Black is an underground techno DJ by the name of Black Asteroid who began his career in his hometown of Minneapolis working for Prince at his Paisley Park Studios. He will be spinning in Glendale for Independence Day at the Complex. Music lovers can go to this fairly new live-music venue to enjoy DJ Black Asteroid’s live DJ set with four decks of music, drums, and other sounds and programming that will go late into the night.

DJ Black Asteroid focuses on the underground techno scene, and there has been a larger American following to his music since the huge success of electronic dance music. EDM has had a large influence, but Black Asteroid believes that people are seeking out his underground music because they are finding that it is the root of EDM music, which is catchy, but burns out fast.

Bryan Black is also one-half of the techno/electro duo Motor. He’s also been recently recruited by Depeche Mode to remix “Soothe My Soul,” and they are also playing his music during the pre-show of their current world tour. Bryan Black plays gigs in Europe, Asia and North America.

This new music is just another example of what musical events are available to Glendale after the opening of Complex in 2012. The small bar and live music venue has weekday entertainment that starts at 9pm daily and varies by night. Saturday night features live music and DJ events, and on Sunday the festivities continue with a day party from 2pm to 8pm. Complex is located at 806 E. Colorado St., Glendale, CA 91205. Visit them at
