      everyone shud, cuz u dont wanna get kicked out for “dancing too hard” do you? (it legit happened to one of my friends at a rusko show there a couple summers ago)

      the security there is god damn ridiculous…thats why u shud give a shit about where he plays

    if u hate scalpers so much, then why do you play venues like HoB? almost all the tix are gone and the only ones left are in real shitty spots

    i bet a very large portion of tickets to this show are still not in the hands of the actual concert attendee

    PLEASE nectar, i fucking beg you, never play the HoB again, if u really cant find another boston venue just play in NoHo, calvin theater is just as big, in a way cooler area, and the venue is ran by its own ticketing agency

    the HoBs security fucking sucks and all the tickets to those shows get bought out by companies looking to re-sell those tickets, everything about that venue is bad news

    its hard to coordinate a concert 2 and a half months ahead cuz u gotta get out of work and shit like that, so if u cant figure these things out within a couple days of tickets being released, then your fucked and either cant go or have to pay a ridiculous price to see you…i remember the good ole days when i could still buy your tickets day of at the venues box office in tiny little venues, i miss those days

    i broke down and just bought 4 tickets…this will be my first time stepping in that piece of shit establishment in over 2 years

    this is how much i love Bassnectar

  • Bassmusicforlife:)

    HOB sucks. Went there for the steve aoki concert all they want is your money. I got a Captain Morgan with coke way over priced 7-8 dollars for a drink. I mean if you want to have a good time at a show and get fucked up off over priced drinks then this is your venue. And good luck smoking weed in the pit they stop it all! NO FUN ANYMORE im telling you.

    • Anonymous

      yeah thats why this venue blows…the security doesnt give a fuck about returning customers or the patrons overall experience

      ANYBODY who lives near boston and regularly has been going to shows for a while will tell you the same thing i am, the HoB is the worst venue in the state…fuck that place…the venue itself is cool besides the fact that tix and drinks are overpriced and its not GA, but the security just takes shit WAY too serious…this is a concert venue, not a fucking airport

      best thing for you to do at this show…stand in line outside the venue and keep cool no matter how fucked up you are, just chill…get inside, follow all their ridiculous rules, rage to bassnectar and vibesquad, dance, have fun, drink their overpriced water, leave, then tell all the security on your way out to fuck off cuz at that point who cares, i wont be back there til next year lol

      i only go to this place if its a show i legit cannot miss and cant travel for another tourdate

        bassnectar in no way endorses this.
        you are entitled to your opinion, bassfreak, but we NEVER encourage anything but respect and kindness to the security at any venue.
        the security are there to do a job, and that job is to make sure everyone is safe and within the confines of some basic standards.
        please respect them.
        if ever there are legitimate problems with security staff please report it to the venue, or even clearly and concisely express it to us so we can learn how to make our shows the best and safest.

          you can make the show better by letting people blaze in the venue…the kind of people who go to bassnectar shows do drugs and at the least blaze, most of us probly a lot

          theres multiple venues in boston you can blaze at, but not the HoB cuz they take shit way too serious

          and its not just getting high…the security kicks you out for the DUMBEST shit

          i had a friend get kicked out of that venue like 2 years ago at a rusko show for ‘dancing too hard”…are you fucking kidding me? fuck that place

          • ??? you can’t just let people do illegal things because it will ‘make the show better’ … shows definitely aren’t better when they get shut down, or when they aren’t renewed the next year around, and that is a possible consequence when people do dumb and/or illegal shit that bears a negative image and creates problems for the venue and their employees, who are not ‘the enemy.’ obviously ‘dancing too hard’ is not dumb or illegal and no one should be kicked out of a venue for that, but the rest of your argument just doesn’t add up. also, not everyone at a bassnectar show does drugs, and making those generalizations are also harmful to the positive image that the bassnectar movement portrays.

            anyway, i hope you have a good time nonetheless and rage it up with peace, love, unity and RESPECT in your midst

          • Bassically_Its_Complicated

            I am neither for or against HOB but Boston, in general for music, is not a place for concert goers…


          • Bassfreak2

            who cares? flogging molly sucks and mosh pits are for tools on steroids who want an excuse to beat other people up

    • Nabb44

      for those off us not looking to go to a public area to get shit faced the HOB is a great place to HEAR the music.  its small good viewin shit ton of fun

        oince you start actually going to concerts you will too realize that this venue blows, just wait til u get kicked out

        i know more people who have been kicked out of that venue than people that havent, and thats saying a LOT

        fuck the hob, its a piece of shit venue that doesnt give a fuck about the people who make it go and keep it running (the fans)

        but for real dude, you have no idea what ur talking about

        i wish nectar could play the paradise again, now those shows bring me waaaayyyyyyy back, how i miss the old days

  • Odinskeeper

    Please let me buy two more tickets :[ its my birthday and all I’ve wanted is to see you :[

    • Your best bet is to try and buy face value tickets from someone on this page, or the Facebook event page. Tickets do crop up, you just have to be fast when they do. Don’t buy from scalpers!
