Prefuse 73 @ Austin Psych Fest
Austin Psych Fest

Bassnectar will lead the charge on "Bass Island" at South Island Field on Governors Island on August 13th. The show will be Bassnectar's only stop in NYC for the remainder of 2011 and is "part one in a spellbinding trilogy of music, art, and culture" that aims to "create a unique world to explore, beyond the realms of a normal concert experience". Word.

The full lineup of artists confirmed for the island celebration include Lupe Fiasco, Z-Trip, Prefuse 73, Virtual Boy, Dave Nada and Joro Boro, with possibly more TBA. Tickets go on general sale at noon today (5/20). Poster below.

Bassnectar's other upcoming dates include Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Dave Matthews Band Caravan in Atlantic City, Camp Bisco, Osheaga, AND Hangout Fest in Alabama tonight (5/20). The full list is below.

Prefuse 73 released The Only She Chapters via Warp on April 24th. The album features appearances from Shara Worden, Zola Jesus, and the late Trish Keenan. The record dropped within days of Prefuse 73's appearance at Austin Psych Fest last month, and belated pictures from that show adorn this post. More of them, with all Bassnectar dates, below.

Curious if ANY of these people know who DJ Magic Mike is.

The guy with the hat has a badge that says "ARTIST". Need to differentiate them for the musicians.

Saw Prefuse 73 at Bell House a few years back - had to be the WORST show I've ever seen in NYC.

BASSNECTAR!!!!!!!!

@12:24 The worst show I've ever seen was the one your mom and grandma put on with the donkey in Mexico every spring break.

One time back in 2007 I dropped some hummus on my MacBook, and it started to short circuit and bade all these weird buzzing noises that sounded like a prefuse 72 set.

If you are going to this mash-up, or even enjoy mash-ups, time to listen to some real music

Yeah, they're all in a computer now.

I don't think you know what instrument means.

WOW! ROTFLMAO!!! must have been a dynamite show- watching 2 guys with laptops!!

get the needles out of your arms (literally and figuratively)!

the emperor is wearing no clothes....

this is BS.... and there are so many important issues in the world that NEED your attention- Somalia, climate change, the wars, the upcoming election. You can change the world!!!

Just think it's funny that all their equitment is set up on a tray table. Maybe after the show they serve snacks. :)

lol at electronic music haters. Just cuz you don't like it doesn't mean it sucks. Different people, different tastes. And since when has music/genre/etc EVER had to anything to do with Somalia, climate change, the wars or the the upcoming election? You sir/ma'am have honestly posted the dumbest/most irrelevant comment I have ever read.

If you stop listening to music you can stop the war overseas!!!

and @2:53, of course "assnectar" (clever name by the way) would have been too obvious because he is the one who put it on. nice try though!
