Canada RunGreetings friends to the north!

We are gearing up for the final leg of our Fall Tour this week; a 4-city blitz of bass in a slightly different format. This is the grand finale of the biggest, heaviest, most insane tour in Bassnectar history, and we have set up 4 central targets for ‘regional event explosions’ – inspired by road trips and bass centers.

It is an annual ritual to travel up to Canada at this time each year, but we have never had the chance of bringing the full scale heat with us, and now we do. And as usual, each show will be packed with freaks and brimming with it's own personality:

With hardcore bass heads traveling in from Victoria, Whistler, Kelowna, Castelgar, Nelson, and beyond, we are preparing our largest show ever in Vancouver (or British Columbia for that matter!) with the full production of the Divergent Spectrum Fall Tour, with support from Bonobo and R/D.

November 19 – CALGARY, ALBERTA
After last years double feature in Calgary, and Edmonton selling out with a vengeance, we have prepared the largest roof possible for both cities (and surrounding bass addicts) to converge together under and celebrate our craziest Alberta show ever. Full PK sound system extravaganza here, with Bonobo & RD on support.

November 25 – MONTREAL, QUEBEC
After a smashing experience at the Osheaga Festival this summer (and Piknik Electronique before that), we are returning to beautiful Montreal with a major gift of subsonic love and a chance to bring all my latest favorite music and ideas to such a creative and unique city. Importing tons of extra bass for this experience, with local support from FunkyFalz and Dooze Jackers.

We had to have something special for Detroit, and when we realized that the Fillmore would not be able to hold the amount of people coming out, we began planning something big. The idea arose to find a space that could also fit travelers from Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Toronto, and surrounding areas, and then Big Gigantic hopped on board, and we are ready for the grand finale of our Fall Tour 2012!

If you are making the road trip from another town, please carpool & drive safe. You can hit up our message board if you are looking for ride-shares, or good deals on hotels or places to stay. As always, we encourage you to go above & beyond, and turn this event into a full on interpersonal experience by activating your own unique enthusiastic personality, and flinging it into the melting pot. As usual, our tickets are moving fast, and at this point are almost gone.

We don't want you left out in the cold so click HERE for tickets and more tour information!

See you soon!

  1. Lorin, I just read that the policy-enforcers at OWS are using LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device, aka “sound cannon”)s as a means of dispersing & crippling protesters.  In my experiences with sonic power, I have found that it can be used for healing, unifying, and literally trans-forming a situation by influencing the vibrations of a given field.
    I know from attending several of your shows – particularly one in Albany last April, and at Wakarusa in June – that you understand this power sound has for affecting consciousness.  I feel like the usage of these LRADs to harm and bring about pain is a sonic application parallel to using nuclear technology to destroy each other instead of nuclear fusion to bring about atomic unity.  Do you have any words or sounds for me to inspire my steps towards New York?  I am sonic potential, utilize me.
    Loving us,

    I still maintain that “Stomp” is the best Bassnectar tune.  🙂

  9. Dubhead says:

    Next time go for Van Andel Arena its way bigger and closer to me hahaha

    • robot_bass says:

      detroit is a lot more centrally-located so we can get people in from canada, too, though 🙂 bring bass love from all angles.

      • Dubhead says:

        Yeah but it only 4500 cap. or 10,001-15,000 seating capacity. 3x the canadians can come then lol. its making my ticket search close to impossible.

        • robot_bass says:

          from what i’ve gathered, the bassnectar team prefers quality over quantity when it comes to this issue 🙂 even with these really big venues/arenas they’ve been playing, which have really large max capacities, they still cap it off way below the absolute maximum — that way, we can get the mostest&freakiest bassheads packed in, without being detrimental to the sound quality. these big venues aren’t designed for bass music, so there’s gotta be a cap 🙂

          BUT — sorry to hear you’re having trouble finding a ticket! i hope you make your way in somehow. you can sign up for e-mail updates from the bassnectar crew, so next time you can beat ticketmaster/scalpers by getting advanced tickets! just enter your e-mail into the box on the right side of this screen labelled ‘colorstorm remixtape.’ you’ll get a download link to a sick beatmix in your e-mail AND all the up-to-date info about shows 🙂

  10. I notice you guys haven’t been to the north east since Bass Island! Are you going to come through later in Spring? I have to get my dosage of bass!

    Hey LoriN and BaSS CreW~  When do ya suppose Seattle and Portland will get another dose of Wompage?  Looks like febuary is not on the line up : (.   Any idea?

    • robot_bass says:

      hey there — here is what Lorin said back in October about hitting the pacific NW 🙂

      “we were gonna play in Seattle this November the night before Vancouver, but they decided to postpone it because they wanna go BIG, and regional to pull freaks from all over Washington state & Oregon & BC, (sounds like they want to do a Bass Center in 2012) but they are trying to find a venue that can handle it….stay tuned

      • Endthewarmachine!! says:

      • Endthewarmachine!! says:

        • robot_bass says:

          …although I have wanted to check out Seattle. for a long, long time. maybe Bass Center will be calling my name. 🙂

        • robot_bass says:
