*A note on the venue change from Bassnectar Labs and Upstream Entertainment:

Dear Vancouver,

We hope you can trust us; we have made the best decision possible and accounted for all variables, never wanting to put out anyone or place the party in a venue that isn’t appropriate for raging!!! Richard’s isn’t ready to reopen and that is why we had to move to Vogue.
The Vogue isn’t what it used to be. Back in the day it was seated all the way to the front and (obviously) wasn’t very dance friendly. Well, those days are gone. The place is now run by a great guy (a LOCAL guy, this place isn’t owned by some lame giant corporation) who allows fans to let loose and have the kind of experience they have come to expect at a Bassnectar Show.

The movement logistics:
-This is a General Admission venue with more seats removed in the front.
-The numbers (approx):
-400 people can be directly in front
-700 people can be in the areas with no seating at all on the floor only (and there we’re already hitting the capacity of Richard’s.)

The Vogue’s seated area has room for 2 people between the seats upstairs (which fold up,) plus you have true space which grants a little breathing room to groove out in what will be a packed venue.
The short of it: plenty of space to move and dance in the aisles upstairs, plenty of space on the floor.We hope you come though so you can experience The Vogue and what it’s like in a party atmosphere. You’ll be pleasantly surprised and we will all have a blast.

Not to mention that The Vogue’s acoustics are better then anywhere in town, and Lorin’s going to sound amazing in there.

Thank you,
Bassnectar and Upstream Entertainment

    So… Dick's on Dicks has been torn down…
    Do you have a back up venue?

    • Guest

      whoa. weird. Let me check it out. brb with an update.

  • Hey Wil. There's a new Richards at 1036 Richards St. 🙂

  • Wil

    No way! I'm stoked about this!
    Thanks Daysha!

  • mkbarbera

    Is this show still on? Where is the New Richards on Richards?

    • Yep! They are building a new Richard's that will be opening up just in time for the Bassnectar show.

  • KEET0

    moved to vogue theatre? is this an open floor or seats?

  • Nihiriju

    Is there anywhere we can get tickets presale besides online? Hellcat? Zulu? Beatstreet? I don't have one of em fancy credit card thingys.

    I am stoaked though!

  • aidanb

    get the at ticketmaster….. you know you dont have to go online on ticketmaster you can walk your butt down to an outlet. but i am very angry that this show has been moved to the vogue tho. the ticket value just went down in my books. probably cheaper for them to rent the vogue too.

    • thecarter

      Totally ampped for tonights show in DC!!!I heard that the 9:30 club in DC isn't allowing glow sticks. and they said it was at the artist's disgression, lorin is this true dude? Womp Womp Womp

      • i didnt know that

        but i will say this:

        glowsticks are fine, and there are a lot better things in the world for me to worry about.

        but also: i cant stand having them thrown at me, and they are a tremendously wasteful thing…each glowstick will be around rotting for decades.

        but again, in reality they look fucking cool when thousands of them are flying around (just not AT me…i cant stand that)

        much love

        • Lia Holland

          More like each glow stick will be sitting in a landfill for over 1000 years. It takes a plastic bag over a millennium to decompose. Glow sticks are thicker. I wonder how we could get a similar effect more sustainably?

    • where would you rather have it?

      • Bass_Cadet

        Any club with a proper dance floor. I know you say vogue has 700 capacity dance floor but from personal experience there I really don't see how that will be. There are some places in Vancouver that are massively douchey like whatever they call plush now and that boss place but they have giant dance floors, good sound, and functional bars. I dont know, I guess the vogue will have pretty wicked acoustics and if the dance floor really is large then it will be sick no matter what.

  • aidanb

    ya how will this work. general admission? what about the balcony?? are you going to force me to the balcony because your going to over pack the place with general admission and everyone is going to want to be on the floor level. the vogue is a decent venue, definately not on the top of my list for vancouver venues.

    • yeah would have been awesome if the venue we anticipated actually came through and didnt have to accidentally not open in time.

      but its better than cancelling the show, eh?

  • Nihiriju

    Yeah sooo….i'm a lil cheezed off to. Tixs are $28 USD here, plus taxes and shit, comes out to like $ 36 or something CND and in Toronto they are $ 12 USD……… Seriously? WTF? I thought the west coast was were its all from. I could kinda see these prices for the Commodore…..but hardly even, i'm just lost and confused and feeling not good now.

    My mind better get melted.

    • its funny how everyone turns to me as if it's *US* tacking that shit on. when in reality we are fighting the ENTIRE TIME to keep the tickets as LOW as possilbe. FOr one, i love my fans. For 2, i know *i* appreciate affordable tickets. For 3, i know more people will come if the tickets are more affordable.

      So we go BEYOND to make sure its as cheap as possible. if you see ass-high prices it means we are at one of the premier venues in the country that undoubtedly has some bullshit EXLCUSIVE ticketing contract with some bullshit ticketing company that shamelessly rapes fans and artists alike.

      the venue in Toronto is like a 250 person room.

      in order to play the premier rooms that fit 1000-1500 people, with state of the art sound and lights, and NOT have sound systems overheating, turningoff, cops busting the place, fights breaking out, etc etc…all the drama of the underground parties we love, this is a necessary step. it sucks. nobody likes it. especially when you realize that the 15$ profit they are making, times 1000 people is 15,000$

      *ALL of that* goes to the ticketing company.

      NONE of it goes to us.

      just so you know

      MUCH LOVE

      -L

      • Nihiriju

        Thank you for clarifying this!

        I know we sound negative sometimes, but it is just confusion building up.

        I very much look forward to the show!

        Much Love,

        Nihiriju

    Moved to the Vogue Theatre? Over the last week I've been asking around about the Vogue theatre to find out about the dancefloor and venue. After many dead ends I went to the source. A girl working there said they remove the first 2 rows of seats and there's a bit of a dancefloor in front of the stage and peeps can dance up on the balcony and in the rows. It will be general admission so no assigned seating I guess you can dance in between the seats.

    Kind of dissappointed in this change of venue… What are you thinking BASSNECTAR? You know we all love you coming to Vancouver, but we wanna party to your vibes! Not so great in a seated theatre where all dance areas will be heavily over crowded since you'll be selling that place out. What's the deal? Please enlighten us with why this venue was changed other than the potential to sell more tickets.

    • my understanding is there is a dancefloor that fits *700* people in front of the stage (more than the previous venue held total) and then yes there are deep seats in rows behind it. what can we do? the original venue will not be open. so we can cancel the show?
      or we can go balls out. the very professional promoter who has done bassnectar shows for the past 4 years in vancouver says this is the best venue possible and i trust him
      🙂

  • gillian

    Why wasn't it moved to the Commodore?

    • a) i played the commodore 3 times already
      b) commodore wasnt available (the promoter of this show, Darrell, also books the commodore, and The Vogue was in his words “the single best option available in vancouver” for us with whats available this late in the game.
      c) ive been promised that there will be a section in the direct front that fits 600 people (THE CAP of richards on richards) with a huge area of seats – each seat is 2 people deep, enough room to go apeshit)

      LASTLY: if we cannot rage the EFFFFING FACE out of this venue i will lose faith

      COME ON VANCOUVER!!!!
      NO MORE WHINING!

      LETS CRUSH

    Shameless,
    My posting although it had a typo was removed.
    Was it because I asked about refunds? Who would not want a refund after rushing to buy tickets online for a venue in a club and then having the venue change to a fixed seat theatre and an all ages show???

    Somehow this piece of press got missed. I am calling my credit card company to reverse the charges as I have been ignored rather than dealt with one to one.

    Ticketmaster offers a refund in the case of venue changes, thats called customer service…

    Communication???
    Never thought I would have a bad taste of the Bass,

    • morning jacob!
      (blink blink)
      im just waking up, about to head out on a 7 hour drive.
      there is no consirpacy, we have a vast team of moderators on this site and everyone's agenda is simple:

      to love&support the fans, and to foster community.

      if your post got deleted, thats shitty, but its not a conspiracy or censorship (unless you were being rude)

      and if you are having some trouble, need refunds etc, i will make sure someone sorts you out, ok bud?

      this is the first i have heard of it.

      hang tite.
      everyone is in transit

      im going to go eat breakfast

      here's a little email we have been sending out to those concerned with the venue change. we will most def offer you a refund. please just let me know after reading the message. email me at assistance@bassnectar.net

  • Hey oh Lorin, thanks for the feedback you've written out here. I just nabbed my tickets and was a little worried about the venue change at first. After reading about the space and size and all that I'm sure it's gonna be jussssst fine.

    The sound at the vogue is amazing, I can account for that, doesn't really matter where you are, the sound is delicious. I just got an ear load of Grizzlybear a month back and was surprised by the bass coming off them in that space.

    I mean they are not a bass heavy band, so i can only imagine what the bass of the nectar is gonna be like! So anyone that's having doubts don't worry about it, it's gonna be an amazing ear smashing mash up no matter wut!

    Poxin (ala inkspoon)

    • awwww
      THANKS FOR THE VOTE OF CONFIDENCE!
      i am hyped too

      as i said, i have played some DODGY ass venues and situations
      i have played in artichoke fields, on the side of a highway, in totally illegal wharehouses, in a building that the 2nd floor collapsed on the first, in crazy countries, on boats, etc etc

      i think we will do just fine, even if the venue is a little whacky.
      that just UPS the ante so we can go even more bezerk
      🙂

  • brandon

    Holy sh*t peeps, chill out.. BASSNECTAR IS COMING TO TOWN!!!!!!!!!!

    who gives an eff where he plays.. i'm not going so i can admire the scenery. i'm going, to have my mind completely twisted.

    if the price of tickets or venue is getting you down, take a real avenue to get it resolved, don't spam your woes here… you just bring the man down.

    looking forward to the show, L. driving up from Seattle for this. bring it.
    : D

  • Kaitlin

    Hey there,

    Just wandering if there is any sort of bar in the new venue??

    • if there isnt, elliott and i will be selling nailpolish and hand sanitizer shots out back for 5$ a pop

    • I'm not so sure there is actually. I only recall, over priced cheep beer, and wine. But i might be wrong?

  • cdevo

    Cant wait for the show. I think this will be my fifth time, hmmmm not really sure now.
    Vancouver welcomes you again, and we are always ready for your style of spin, knob twisting, hand pumping and all the other fun you have while were having it too. Everything will be right as rain on the west coast. The Vouge is right on Granville Street in the bar strip area of town. There will be fun in and out, up and down, how every you like it, come to party, I will be.

  • Mini_super

    (Here here Brandon!)

    Don't let the whiners get to you Lorin, they don't represent Vancouver. We love your shows! (I'm driving 5 hours to this one.)

    And no matter what the venue is there will be a FRENZY. I couldn't be more pleased that we now get to experience that kick-ass pK system in a proper theatre. I'm giggling just thinking about it…

    • whiners whiners everywhere
      🙂
      swat your hand like yu just dont care
      (remind me to never pursue an MC career)

  • last

    can you buy tickets at vogue? instead of online?

  • lastexitlastexit

    can you buy tickets at vogue? instead of online?

    • You can grab tickets in person before the show at any ticketmaster retail outlet. Here's the location search list: http://bit.ly/ticketoutlets

      Ordering through the site makes them cheaper, so if you want to go that route and dont have plastic, you can use your paypal account instead. 🙂

  • cdevo

    Welcome to Vancouver again, and thanks a bunch for making it on a Friday, we do love you…. Tuning up and making my way…. see you soon.

    • COOL!
      man i just came from sound check
      it sounds amazing!!!!!

      but people were right…it is one WIERD FUCKIN choice of venue…all those seats.
      i heard Gogol Bordelo tore that place up…i guess people can dance on the seats
      HA!

      we will see!!!!

      WOMP

      • cdevo

        Yep….. your sound on that system last night was soooo….. sooo….. shoot any description would just minimize how great it was. And Yep Yep….. to the venue choice….. it was strange based on type of participation we like to have with your art, but whatever…… just gotta roll with it.
        Will see you @ Shambhala 2010 (please) if not before. All the best with the rest.

        • John Dore

          Yes the show was very good for a theater arrangement, although the bouncers were dicks. And there was alot of start-n-stops throughout the show, was really hopin to see some more transitions from song to song.

          • haha! thats funny
            someone else told me the mix sounded like one giant song and they wish i had broken it up more.
            every1z a critic
            but Sux 2 hear about bouncers…they are always so nice to me.
            then i hear dickish stories

            next time ill showem my crazy flex and they'll know to fear the bass
            er….sumthin?
            😉

            SEE YA NEXT TIME!
            L

          • John Dore

            Yea don't get me wrong the show rocked, awesome bass, Im just being negative east coast John (and the bouncers kicked me out for greening but I snuck back in :D)

          • John Dore

            And yea, I have to say I'm impressed that you respond to threads, props for that. Im just accustomed to regular house-style dj sets with transitioning even from dj to dj. But, if I look at it from outside that bias the show was awesome.

        • cooool!
          MUCH LOVE
          🙂

  • mizcommunication

    Finally got to see you for the first time on Friday… THANK YOU!! ::Love love love::

  • amj1190

    Hey Lorin, great show in Vancouver! I brought a car full of kids up from Bellingham and brought back a car full of serious Bassnectar fans. I was wondering if there was any way to buy a concert poster from you online? I tried buying one at the show, but only had American money, and even after offering 10$ (double price!) was informed that it was Canadian currency with NO EXCEPTIONS. Either way, thanks so much for putting on a great show, and I'll see you in Portland and Seattle this February.

    • Awww, we wish they had letcha buy one!
      They aren't on the merch site right now, but we're thinking about it.
      If not, we're in Seattle on the 6th of February, and we will definitely be taking American money 😉

    • hey bud!
      truly wierd story, but super sorry to hear that complication!!! we will have heaps of them on the Northwest run, and i'll get them up online today if possible

      THANKS A BUNCH FOR THE ENTHUSIASM!
