EDM Event Preview: Tight Crew’s Block Rockin Beats

This Saturday, August 18, Tight Crew will be back with another block party! The aptly titled Block Rockin Beats party is happening from 3pm to 1am at The Met (both indoors and outside in the courtyard) in Pawtucket.

After dabbling in indoor/outdoor events last summer for the Crew’s tenth anniversary party at Fete, they’re back and bringing the heat this weekend with indoor and outdoor stages (including a 45-foot boom lift DJ booth!), themed decor and radical audio/visual experiences (provided by Supreme Sounds & Lighting).

Headlining DJs are Of The Trees (bass music from Maine), Ill.gates (bass from Los Angeles), DJ Knowledge (high energy bass and house from Connecticut) and DJ Venom (hard house turntablism from RI). Sick, right? Well, this lineup will also feature 13 more New England-based electronic acts! Block Rockin Beats will showcase a range of EDM artists, having a strong representation of house music producers and DJs on-hand as well as bass, happy hardcore and trap spinners. There will be something for everyone in your group (or as an individual partygoer and music fan) to love.

Since this is Tight Crew, after all, the party doesn’t simply begin and end with the music. Other highlights will include fire performers, a ball pit, bounce house and life graffiti art by Paint for Peace (PfP). PfP is an international body painting organizations with artists from across the globe painting and sharing peace-and-love fueled creations. This year’s PfP theme is PLUR (Peace Love Unity Respect), which makes this rave the perfect collaboration for the group.

If attendees want to take a break from the dance floors, they can play a variety of arcade and video games, make kandi in a designated area or enjoy drinks and food (including free fresh fruit!). Merchandise will also be available for purchase from several vendors, including Mutiny Apparel and Tight Crew.

This is an all-ages event (21+ to drink). Tickets are currently available online and will be available at the door (if they don’t sell out first!). For more information and to purchase tickets, visit tightcrew.net.
