Since we’re armpits deep in pre-Valentine’s Day diamond commercials on TV right now, envision this: Two lovebirds are ready to take their relationship to the next level. Rather than take her to the jewelry store to pick out a ring, he takes her to a club with a whole wall of speakers stacked floor to ceiling.
He gets down on one knee, and suddenly the speakers unleash a torrent of bass so deep and heavy, it sends waves across her cheeks and makes her heart leap from her chest.
“Every kiss," the jingle goes, “begins with bass."
Lovers of low-end rumble (and each other) have an intriguing option for Thursday night after dinner: Bass Love, a night of electronic music by Northwest artists, including bass/glitch/house master Phutureprimitive, Eugene’s own live electro-pop-rock combo Medium Troy and others.
There’s a discount for couples, and hey: If you want to go to this, and you’re in a relationship with someone else who wants to go to this, hold on to that person. That’s gold right there.
Bass Love, with Phutureprimitive, Medium Troy, Psy Fi, Hypha and Defekt; 8 p.m. Thursday; $10, $15 for couples; Liquid Lounge, 70 N.W. Newport Ave., Bend; www.slipmat science.com or 541-389-6999.
