Blow Up "Reunion" Planned for Next Weekend

Posted By on Fri, Apr 2, 2010 at 8:10 AM

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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
