As the mercury rises and the Texas heat hits triple digits, there’s only one place to cool down, chill out, and dance like nobody’s watching. Friday, August 19th, Amped Austin hosts Bass Makes Friends, a Texas dance off that’s sure to keep all the sizzle in summer with none of the humidity. Presented by The FYR Crew, a Texas-wide collective with a passion for live music and all the unpredictable fun it brings, Bass Makes Friends boasts a dizzying array of drink specials and door prizes for even the most discerning Austin night owl. And since this party’s scheduled to go all night long (and all night strong), you’ve got no excuse not to head down to East 6th Street and cut loose.

Amped Austin ~ An upstart staple of the downtown Austin club scene, Amped Austin proudly wears its reputation as “The Sexiest Nightclub in Austin” on its sleeve. This is no small feat considering East 6th Street—known colloquially as “Dirty Sixth”—is ground zero for some of the most deliciously debauched entertainment south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Featuring local DJs, innovative drink specials and the hottest clientele since Studio 54, Amped is a neon stronghold where the only taboo is refusing to enjoy the night of your life. Be sure to head upstairs where Amped literally tears the roof off the place so you can dance beneath the Texas starlight.
Bass Makes Friends
The brainchild of the mysterious but oh-so effervescent FYR Crew, Bass Makes Friends is exactly what it sounds like: a networking opportunity without name tags or lectures on corporate synergy. Those curious curators of FYR have crafted a stellar lineup of local EDM talents, including Kanflict, ChrisVipe, and Austin’s own WHLR. And who knows? While you’re hopped up on Red Bull cocktails and hypnotic beats, you may just end up dancing with your future spouse—or at the very least, the person you’ll grab migas and mimosas with when the morning comes. The best part is that Bass Makes Friends is a totally free event! If you feel like getting ahead of the curve when it comes to drink specials, be sure to RSVP on Facebook to secure your wristband.
What are you waiting for? One of the coolest parties of the summer arrives just in time to beat the Texas heat. Head down to Amped Austin (300 E. 6th Street) for Bass Makes Friends, a Texas dance off that’s guaranteed to spawn lifelong memories you wish you could remember. See you there!
