From Bassnectar: “I focus on the live experience with 5,000 living beings in this room, and a concert-level sound system that’s ridiculously customized to not differ by any more than 3 decibels in any point of the room, and to saturate their bodies in a lake of bass.”
Which explains why promoter Goldenvoice emailed us:
"The upcoming Bassnectar show on Thursday May 3rd [in Santa Cruz] has been cancelled [at the last minute]. It has been decided that due to the high volume and intense bass of the Bassnectar experience, it would be impossible for the show to comply with local sound ordinances while being held at the Civic Auditorium."
