The signature sounds of Bassnectar will fill the walls of Palladium Ballroom next month, when the genre-bending DJ rolls into town on his Divergent Spectrum tour. Joined by Ana Dia and Superdre, the night promises to be a celebration of diverse beats and crowd interaction.
Bassnectar, whose real name is Lorin Ashton, spins everything from dubstep to punk rock remixes. The Santa Cruz-based artist is just as active socially as he is behind the boards, as he's been a longtime supporter of the Concious Alliance, an organization that brings food to the needy.
