Basstown was started in 2006 when the growth of techno and dance parties around the country became unavoidable, and the virus was hitting the New England city best known for being a college rock town. With the rise of great parties like Hearthrob and Thunderdome, a community of DJs, dancers, party kids, and everyone in between started turning venue tiles into dance floors all across Boston and Cambridge.
The dream of Basstown is happening NOW.
Gone are times of wishing there was more than one or two decent dance parties or events to hear more cerebral techno (you've been to Make It New, ya?). The city of Basstown is exploding alongside its local colleagues. Stand back and watch it burst.
