Back in February, First Avenue was taken over by the insane dance extravaganza known as Bassgasm: The historic downtown nightclub opened up all 5 of its stages to big name DJs like Derrick Carter, DJ Dieselboy and DJ Vaski, along with countless others in a range of genres, blasting hard and heavy club beats out of the 52 speaker wall. Fans of dubstep, psytrance, minimal dance, techno and dance music in general were treated to an all night party in one of the best concert venues in town.
That was only 5 months ago, but already Bassgasm rolls through for a second go this Friday. Last year’s event was packed to the walls with beautiful people in every room, and the “Wall Of Bass” sound system was so intense that parts of the ceiling started to fall. If that sounds like your kind of party, First Avenue is the place to be tomorrow night. The $20 ticket price ($15 for advance tickets) might seem steep, but for the amount of DJs you’ll see and the craziness of the event, it’s well worth it.
The night promises to be one to remember, a full nine hours of dance mayhem unlike anything else except the first time around. This year brings out folks like Brooklyn’s Tommie Sunshine, the master of the house remix, Los Angeles’ Heavygrinde, spinning West Coast electro, Hulk bringing the live dubstep intensity, and local boy Soviet Panda, behind the popular hipster dance night Too Much Love – and countless others.
