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.
