I’ve made mention a few times on here that trying to explain the style of music that I enjoy is rather difficult. Thankfully I have a wife that has also embraced the bass and hangs out with me while messing with glo-sticks, hula hoops, and every other freak and geek you could ever imagine.
Truly that is the life of a EDM (Electronic Dance Music). I’m thrilled that even MC is to the point that she no longer requests that I “turn off that thump, thump stuff”. In the past year Darco and I were able to enjoy an evening under the neon lights listening to a band named Infected Mushrooms, the same band we haven’t quite heard the end of from our Bible study group.
Interestingly enough, in the area that we live in the scene for EDM tends to appear that it’s on a projected growth path. After Infected Mushrooms there was a giant, two day concert in the middle of the city featuring some major DJ’s. Personally, it’s humorous that I make mention that I listen to EDM, I usually hear “I’d never listen to that”, and then I point out that the majority of the music that someone listens to on a ‘pop station’ has been remixed and remastered by an EDM artist.
Last Saturday night, while enjoying a pretty cool festival with our friends from the brewery, my wife started to talk to a random woman. Somehow this conversation turned into tastes in music, and my wife (love her to death), gave the pitch about the EDM scene.
The next thing that happened transpired from something like this:
My boyfriend got us Bassnector tickets for this Thursday, but we both have to work.
Dude, that stinks.
I know, but…do you want them? Swing by on Tuesday night and grab them from the brewery.
Somehow, someway Darco and I have landed tickets to Bassnectar (sold out by the way) for this Thursday. I don’t have school on Friday, so it’s not as if I’m concerned about the crazy early morning stuff compared to the usual.
Still, many of you like many of the people I know in real life, don’t seem to fully understand what this music is like. Naturally, it’s my duty to enlighten you by the video below:
