Attention Upstate Bassheads: this is the show. Legendary DJ Lorin Ashton AKA Bassnectar will again take over Rochester this Friday, October 3, as part of his “NVSB 2014 Tour” performing alongside notable acts Son of Kick, hailing from London and Kill Paris of Los Angeles. Known for his ultra dense sound, aggressive drops and super-technical beats, Bassnectar puts on a show like no other, with tastefully psychedelic projection visuals and a host of lights. Bassnectar’s most recent album, Noise VS Beauty, was released late June and features some of Ashton’s most intelligent compositions yet, staying true to its name by carefully marrying filth with elegance.
Supporting act, Son of Kick, has achieved respect in the dubstep world in his own right, mainly in Europe so far, with a balanced, somewhat hip-hop influenced sound. Kill Paris will also throw down a funk-driven set, sure to feature big bass and atmospheric textures. All three acts bring different styles to the table with two distinct binding factors: dancing, and BASS.
Doors are at 6PM and Son of Kick should open the show around 7PM. Due to Main Street Armory’s curfew, the evening will likely be wrapped up by midnight. And remember: this will be a hot one with lots of energy, moving bodies and flashing lights; be sure to eat a solid meal and hydrate properly throughout the show.
Tickets are available HERE.
