Bass Herd music
8:00pm – Late :: Festival Club, 610 Ann St, Valley

Presented by Lucas Abela and SOOB
Free

The premise of Lucas Abela’s (dualplover) Bass Herd is that the audience is asked to turn up with bass guitars and amplifiers to play all around the venue in unison. The audience wanders through the resulting cacophony of bass riffs and noise to produce a random composition based on their individual journey throughout the room. Bass Herd invites any prospective bassists to turn up on the night and play - if you want to take part simply bring a bass guitar, amplifier and any extension cords and powerboards you have. Bass Herd appears as part of SOOB Favourites, our closing night party.

Featuring: Bass Herd (possibly YOU!)
