Dubstep trailblazer Bassnectar will not be showing up empty-handed to Alabama for his sold-out New Year’s Eve performance at the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex.
The bustling city was hit with a tornado on Christmas Day where wind speed ranged between 65 and 85 mph, according to the National Weather Service in Tuscaloosa County.
Bassnectar has issued a statement via his website, saying, “We must take a moment to acknowledge the recent severe weather Birmingham has experienced and the damage that took place.”
He has called upon his loyal fan base to help give back to the community by donating bottles of water, canned goods, clothing and more. In heartwarming prose, the prominent bass act adds, “Since this city has welcomed our community with open arms, we would like to give back!”
The venue will unveil his 360-degree spaceship setup and expects approximately 20,000 fans in attendance.
