Bassnectar brings its unique hypnotic sound to the intimate Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre on Friday September 17th at 9PM. This is part of the Cruzan Concert Series. VibeSquaD and Eskmo have both been added as opening support acts for the show.
By combining sound and force with weight, the Bassnectar experience engulfs the senses. It is as physical as it is auditory; the adventure has no rules, no limitations, and no hesitation in fusing the familiar with the strange or the classic with the cutting edge. Bassnectar is the brainchild of Lorin Ashton, and it exists as an open-sourced musical project that is as diverse as it is heavy, as raw as it is meticulous, and as fierce as it is imaginary. Spanning the spectrum of sonic style, the music covers every genre imaginable and smashes it all into a synthesis of intense, wobbling basslines and hypnotic soundscapes. Bassnectar energizes audiences with an experience unlike any other.
