KJ Sawka of Pendulum LIVE! (USA) - Set Time 11:30 pm - 12:45 am

Live Drum Set Performance !! http://kjsdrumline.com/

Hailing from Seattle, Sawka was initially drawn to electronic music by the sounds of Dieselboy, LTJ Bukem and Roni Size. His first breakthrough came with the cult all-improvisatory avant-garde drum 'n' bass trio Siamese who toured North America in 2002-2003 with shows ranging from support slots with LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad to a performance at the New Orleans Jazzfest. His recent career has included rapturously received solo shows, tours with BT and the development of the innovate iPhone app DrumBanger.

Pendulum edge even closer to super-group status with the news that world renowned electronic drummer Kevin Sawka – better known as KJ SAWKA – has joined the band. Sawka has already contributed to the recording of Pendulum's eagerly anticipated third album "Immersion" and was introduced to international audiences when he joined the band's tour that features a landmark show at London's Wembley Arena & Madison Square Gardens.
