Santa Cruz-based DJ Lorin Ashton, better known to the world as Bassnectar, will be performing two nights at the Pageant this weekend, and RFT Music has two tickets to Saturday's sold-out show!

To win, simply tell us why you deserve to go. Be creative! You may enter in the comments below -- make sure you include some way of contacting you, as well as your full name so you can pick up your tickets. We will announce the winner here by 5 p.m. Saturday.

When Bassnectar came to town in 2010, RFT Music writer Christian Schaeffer had this to say:

When you name your musical outfit Bassnectar, you'd better have the feel-good vibes (and the low-end) to back up such a ridiculous moniker. Thankfully, the act's DJ, beat-wrangler and all around party-starter Lorin Ashton embraces the sort of musical pantheism that breaks down borders and gets bodies moving. For the indie snobs, he can toss in Beatles licks or Pixies bass lines -- and for the club kids, the sheer amount of bass and squelching synthesizers is enough to trigger visions of glow sticks. Add a few hip-hop verses, continual tempo adjustments -- and the emotional catharsis that happens when a thousand strangers move as one -- and Bassnectar's mass appeal is no mystery at all.

I deserve to win because I lost all of my BassNectar when a swarm of killer bees raided my subwoofer.

I would like to win the tickets because I waited too long to purchase mine, and now they are sold out. Also, I don't get paid till Monday, and I won't give a scalper the satisfaction of overcharging me.  Bassnectar is rad and you know he's going to throw down in a venue like the Pageant!

Every nectar show is a family reunion for me.  I want to be surrounded by people who share the same love for Lorin's art as I do.  I follow this man all over the country and the thought of missing him in my own backyard is making me sad.  Help a basshead out RFT! Love you guys!!!

I could definitely put a pair of tickets to fantastic use tomorrow night with my best friend!!  We both love Bassnectar, but can't locate any affordable tickets due to greedy scalpers!!  :(  Here's to hoping you guys can help us out with a couple miracles!!  If/when we make it there, we'll be dancing our asses off!!

Thanks all!! :)

Bassnectar got his start playing gigs at Burning Man.

I think I deserve to go because I've turned a lot of friends onto Bassnectar and I still haven't seen his live show. Also I just got a new job and my truck fixed. With everything else lining up, it just seems fitting. That would be pretty epic to go and I totally have the time off. It would in fact come at a pretty good time.

I think I deserve to go because if I go the show will be more amazing for everyone who paid for a ticket because my buddah belly will provide for better bassnectary accoustics off said buddah belly.

I really think I deserve to go because when I hear Bassnectar , I start to hear dinosaurs and taste colors. I'm literally risen off the flat plains of Sodom and Gomorrah and dropped down onto the colorful slopes of Mt.Sinai, transported by a ship of predatory vegetables and given to cannibalistic fruits. I live to be in their presence and to feel the bass run through my veins, up to my brain and turn my life into a fun filled fantasy kaleidoscope. Bassnectar is rad, Bassnectar is life!!!!

I do. Justin stole all off my underpants and I had to replace them, thus rendering me unable to purchase tickets.
