Bassnectar @ Marquee Theatre|10/17/12
Love for bass was in full supply for Wednesday night's Bassnectar show at Marquee Theatre -- not to mention the three semi trucks to supply the light set up as well the sound systems made for bass.

Bassnectar (real name: Lorin Ashton) has made his mark as to what it seems to be one of the best EDM performances Tempe has seen in quite a while. If you thought bass had hit its maximum amount at the Marquee during Excision's show in February 2012, man, you were sadly mistaken.

Driving by the Marquee three hours before the Marquee's doors opened, car were beginning to caravan and people started to form a line. I knew this was going to one hell of a night.

A universal feeling came over me once I made my way in, and I started remembering my previous experience with Bassnectar from our chat prior to the show and seeing the one and only Loren Ashton live at Electric Forest 2012.

In my prior experience with the man himself, I've found myself having respect for him in many different ways. He is affirmed of his feelings and emotional break downs through his speech and mainly he has displayed that within his music.

Gramatik preformed before Bassnectar. He opened with his remix of the Beatles version of "Don't Let Me Down," featuring a live guitarist. Gramatik's beats were soothing and even went a bit hard to get us in the correct mindset just before Bassnectar took to the stage.

As soon as Gramatik had ended, my two friends and I headed towards the bar to grab some waters and such. The lines were insane, the Marquee was packed and the crowd was anxious. I was ready to get back out to the dance floor so that I could have my space scoped out and be 100% prepared.

Next thing you knew pulses went throughout the venue. Bassnectar was on. The faces of all those stuck at the bar trying to order a drink just gleamed. I said, "screw the drinks," and ran back into the crowd.
