Last weekend, Bassnectar tore the roof off of Madison Square Garden. A sold-out crowd packed the stadium Saturday night, baseheads rejoiced together bass music seemed to have reached a new height. Pioneers in their own right, Rusko and Paper Diamond joined the ranks and got things off to incredible start. Fresh off two sold-out shows at Red Rocks, Big Gigantic also took the stage in jubilant fashion that we've come to expect. Effortlessly crossing between their own cuts like "Touch The Sky" to more mainstream appeal with Oliver Helden's "Overdrive (Gecko)"

Soon thereafter, the Bass Lord took to the decks. Commanding attention from every set of eyes and ears in attendance, Lorin began his onslaught. Supreme visuals matched with top notch audio, combined with perfect song selection and just enough freaks in bleachers. This show went off!

From crowd-surfing on inflatable animals to aggressively twerking on top of seats and railing, everywhere I looked only reaffirmed every thought I had about Bassnectar. This guy gets it. Not like, he's playing the game and going through the motions gets it. No. Lorin get's it in the sense that he isn't going to cater to what is mainstream/mainStage, but could blow anyone of those artists out of the water. He's been doing this over a decade and just sold out Madison Sq. Garden.

Everyone in the building willingly trusts their night with Lorin and they're in great hands.

 

To cap things off perfectly, the climax of the evening ended with a live rendition of 'You & Me' Featuring Darling. Leaving the crowd with some words of wisdom ala MLK...

"If You Can't Fly Then Run. If You Can't Run Then Walk. If You Can't Walk Then Crawl. But above all, you must keep moving. moving. moving."
