Blow Up "Reunion" Planned for Next Weekend

Electro club night Blow Up had an enviable problem: the night helmed by Jeffrey Paradise and Richie Panic attracted such a large following it outgrew its regular home at Rickshaw Stop. As Paradise told us back in February, he didn't just want to drop the night into any old venue: it had to be the perfect mix of divey and classy, with security as friendly to the patrons as Rickshaw's. 

The promoter has yet to find that club sweet spot--even though the mayor's office(!) chimed in offering its support, meeting with Paradise and company to try and find options for his night--but for his birthday he's throwing a Blow Up "reunion" at Kelly's Mission Rock on Saturday, April 10. For this special event, Paradise, Panic, and Blow Up co-promoter Ava Berlin are bringing up Dan Sena from Southern California to help out on DJ duties.

As of this morning, there were close to 700 people RSVPed through Facebook for next weekend's party--showing that Blow Up may be temporarily gone, but it's definitely not forgotten.
