This was Hy-Tekk’s first time experiencing the utterly awe inspiring majesty that is Bass Cave. The ride from Kansas City to Crystal City was filled with anxious energy and curiosity and once we arrived at the parking lot it only intensified. The bus ride to the venue was buzzing with excitment and only served as fuel to my impatient curiosity as to what we were getting in to.
After what seemed like an eternity the bus doors finally opened to reveal the expansive mouth of the cave with light spilling out into the night, welcoming us in with bass and flashing lights. Immediately after entering the cave I was overcome with the familiar sense of harmony and camaraderie I have come to expect from Boogie Knights and the St. Louis crowd. After venturing around for what seemed like hours I found myself at the main stage in the heart of the cave immersed in lights and lazers, surrounded by the turbulent and unrestrained energy of the ever growing crowd of party-goers.
The production and performance on the main stage was truly a sight to behold, complete with fire spinning, stage diving, and a brilliant shower of sparks from Amourena Tsokatos. I don’t think I’ll be able to fully capture and chronicle the essence of feeling safe and at home partying with people I have never met in a cave so tremendous it makes one feel like they could soar, but I can tell you this; I will defintely be returning for the next Bass Cave!
