Week in Tours: DJ Hell, Mr. Lif

DJ Hell

Gigolo Records' head honcho may only have a few Stateside appearances scheduled thus far, but those include none other than a couple WMC appearances, a performance at MUTEK's annual Piknic Electronik event, and a warehouse party to boot. His new album, Teufelswerk (that'd be German for "devil's work"), will be released on April 27. Photo by Daniel Mayer. djhell.de

Rafter

Speaking of witty and often bizarre music, Rafter Roberts will also hit Austin this week, before continuing West on tour. His Sweaty Magic EP recently dropped on Asthmatic Kitty, so expect to hear songs off the release at these dates. Note: we have it on good authority that currently hanging off his tour bus is a banner that reads "SXSW or bust." Photo by Lizeth Santos.myspace.com/rafterroberts
