Bassnectar spent the weekend rattling skulls in Midtown at the Chaifetz Arena. This wasn't his usual show, however: This was Bass Center -- the huge DJ's annual blow-out tribute to low frequencies and the ways they make you move. On hand to celebrate the occasion were Zeds Dead, Gramatik and Gladkill. And St. Louis showed up in style -- photographers Jon Gitchoff and third greatest music photographer Todd Owyoung were there in case you couldn't make/can't remember. Below, the creatures being channeled by some of our favorite spirit hood-wearing, totem-toting bass heads:
Panderina Note the distinctive bracelet collection and remember how cold it was on Saturday. True dedication.
Squid Inspired by Run-DMC and Fiona Apple.
Leopard A more practical spirit hood, given the weather. Seriously, look how fluffy that thing is.
Hamster/Chicken/Wolf/Eagle Ordinarily mortal enemies, the hamster and eagle, wolf and chicken are united under the banner of bass. Tonight, they await the drop in unison!
Scholarly Panda and Sully's Sister On the left we have a panda built for warmer climates than St. Louis on a brisk fall day, and joining her is what we have to assume is a pretty decent channeling of a relation to Monster Inc's Sully. Safe to say we're looking forward to that prequel.
Yeti? Yeah, let's go with that. Excellent work to all involved.
