Nectar Drops at ACL

With much of the crew from different parts of the country, it’s rare to find everyone in the same spot at that same time. So when the bus rolls through my home town of Austin, the celebration is always special.

Not only was this Bassnectar’s first appearance at the Austin City Limits music festival, it was the first time that any artist has womped out a massive sub 100 hz bass wave across the rolling green lawns of Austin’s Zilker park.

Austin is the business.

And MUCH LOVE to the Inner Circle break crew that started up  out of nowhere. Nope… wasn’t planned. Guys were amazing. And no, the picture isn’t upside down. That’s what he looked like right before he moved into an upside-down helicopter head spin. Check it at the 1:20 mark:

WORD.

To those that were there, seriously… the nectar threw down. If you missed the ACL set, no worries. Bus is headed your way soon.

Next stop… Tuscaloosa.
