Bassgasm 4 at First Avenue: The best photos

Photo by Nick Patton for City Pages
This past Saturday, First Avenue transformed into a rattling raver underground and fans across the Midwest came to dance for hours on end to five rooms of national and local DJs. We had three photographers on the scene to capture every outfit, every DJ, every bead of sweat (OK, not that far). After the jump, find a few of our favorite pics and links to the slideshows, as well as an all-access bit with headliner DJ Klever who took a bit of the city home with him... permanently.

Ravers in all colors came out for Bassgasm 4 at First Avenue. They might not ever end up on the cover of Vogue but damn if they don't add pizazz to a club.

Ravers as far away as Portugal came to have their bodies rattled by mega-bass.
