If you have ever heard the name Bassnectar, or known someone who has attended one or many of his shows, you know they are one of a kind. Each set unique and catered to the audience he is performing for. With a notorious family of “Bassheads” traveling across the country to see him, some even relate the fan-base to The Grateful Dead touring years.

Eprom: Eprom took the stage at 10:30 to a packed Chicago crowd. Immediately hitting Concord with bass, that quite literally shook…
