GRiZ at The Palace

musician GRiZ

DJ/producer/saxophonist GRiZ is set play a show at The Palace November 5. Tickets go on this sale this Friday, August 25 -- they're $25 and up.

The electronic music producer has been playing a bunch of festivals this summer. And the Palace date is part of an upcoming national tour as a headliner. (Three dates he's playing at the end of this summer are already sold out.)

GRiZ -- Grant Kwiecinski -- also happens to be gay, which he wrote about for HuffPost earlier this year, including the stress he faced as teen, worried that he wouldn't fit in. The bottom line in the piece: "Never ever give up on yourself. It might not be cool to love Britney Spears, study AP physics or play saxophone but, it's totally cool to be gay."
