Bassnectar at Roy Wilkins: Win free tickets here

Categories: Ticket Giveaway
Bassnectar1.jpg
True to his name, Bassnectar creates music that's tailor-made for fans of the low end. The Santa Cruz-based dubstep artist and DJ has earned a reputation for putting on a killer live show, complete with light shows and wall-rattling, tempo-shifting sounds, and his first headlining festival last year drew in performers like Dan Deacon, Emancipator, and the Twin Cities' own Brother Ali.

When Bassnectar comes to Minnesota next month, it's sure to be a hell of a party. He's set to perform on Friday, September 30, at Roy Wilkins Auditorium, and we want to send five of our readers and their friends to the show for free.

His originality is off the wall. The sounds he produces are like no other, as he combines many different tempos with many different rhythms which sound to me like they are all in perfect harmony. This creates amazing music that is very artistic and something I love to dance the night away to. ThankYou FoR YoUr MuSiC!!!! OnELoVe :)(:

I love how the beats and rhythm is versatile to every day listening. Its dubstep, mixed vocals, wobble BASS, errrything. I zone in studying to it, I can run to it, and I can get down and break some moves to it at a show. Mmmm Bassnectar I wanna see you live!!!

I've never had a chance to see him live, and since I live in north dakota I don't get too many opportunities! His music is incredible... His innovative style blows my mind every time!

I love that Lorin is not afraid of mixing all types of music into his own genre. Rock, hip hop, pop, dance, and even punk can be found throughout Bassnectars albums. Each song is always a new and exciting excperience plus he really knows how to bring that BASS!

never seen bassnectar live but what i love anput him is his music(duh). but his collaborations with other artists keep producing hit songs and how he can merge genres like immigraniada off his new album. or king of the bongo from back in the day haha. but regardless he is ever changing but always is doing the next big thing!

Lorins sets are pure genius. The way he combines audio and visual is excellent. When you see the way he ties in his visual display with his songs, you understand the true meaning of the song... some of the subliminal messaging he portrays is intense.

I love bassnectar because he's one of the most original dubstep DJ's. his sound isn't mainstream sounding like many other artists that have played shows here in the past couple of months. All his music sounds different, he makes it his own and each song seems to tell a story. the beats he puts together blend so well how could you not want to dance along with them? I'm looking forward to enjoying this night with everyone that will be there! this nights going to be one for the record books!!!

I love the melodic violence of the music he produces. Its like a kick in the stomach that you actually enjoy and beg for over and over and over and over....

Bassnecture is true to its name, with bass beats that are so sweet they give me orgasms in my ears that surge through my whole body. I cant help but dance my face off.

I have yet to see Bassnecter live but I really want. his music is one of the reasons I became a dj to be able to make sick and amazing sounds just like him. I really want to go to this.

Favorite thing about Bassnectar was that I went on a whim at my lover's suggestion.  One of the most charged nights of my life followed.  It came without warning and I was sore for 4 days after :-)

Seeing him at last year for halloween was pretty dope and at EDC this year it was nuts. He puts on a great show with lots of energy.

I love Bassnectar because every single song I have herd from him is amazing!! I am so excited for this show and possibly winning tickets would just be great. I have had "Lights" stuck in my head for the past few days, would be my first show and I am sure either way its going to be a good one.

Saw him perform The Varsity - was awesome. My favorite thing was watching my Norwegian roommate bounce around the crowd giddy with excitement.
