The definition of a grassroots success, Bassnectar became one the most popular dance musicians in the country not by remixing the big stars or holding down a residency at a hot New York club but by touring the middle of the country, picking up more and more fans in every city. Few other DJs can claim to have held their most legendary performance at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Tonight and tomorrow, the 33-year-old comes to the city, bringing his hard-hitting fusion of hard-rock aggression, rave beats, and hip-hop energy—what the kids are calling dubstep—to Terminal 5.
