Event: This Weekend @ Rise

The 10 year anniversary celebrations continue at RISE and this weekend there are some special guests that we all know too well...

Friday, January 30: PR Recordings presents Steve Porter & Friends

RISE-resident DJ/producer Steve Porter returns to the club where it all started for him. Before he matured into one of the State’s biggest dance music exports, with 70 singles to his credit and headlining gigs in the world’s best clubs, he was a local Boston DJ. In 1999, RISE-owner Tom Beaulieu was quick to recognize Porter’s talent, providing him with a home at the one club where he could develop the craft that would soon take him to six continents and back. He’s returned to help his home club celebrate ten years of world-class nightlife, with local support from Red Foxx and Eli Wilkie, two of today’s most recognizable names in the Boston dance music scene. Western Mass home turf homeys Chris Thorpe and Jon Winn will drop Deep Tech in the lounge all night.

Saturday, January 31st: Peter Rauhofer (NYC)

With a list of Remixes that reads like the Billboard's top 40, Peter Rauhofer is not only one of Madonna's favorite knob-tweakers but the recepient of a Grammy Award in 2000. As one of the bigger names in the Industry, Rauhofer popularity transcends outside the United States and gender lines. He is mostly known for his legendary residency at the Roxy in New York, and now is currently the resident DJ of the gay dance party called "Work." It's an honor to have him in town so get there early cause this one is gonna be packed.

...and Remember, anyone who emails and mentions Manifest Destitute will receive reduced admission for themselves and their party this Friday.
