Source- After news of the Blood Rave in Amsterdam swept across social media a few weeks ago, news of an identically inclined blood rave will take place during New York’s Comic Con, featuring electronic music pioneers The Crystal Method as headliners, as well as featuring Pictureplane, The Dance Cartel, A Place Both Wonderful And Strange, and DJ Choyce Hacks. The party will also include sword fighting, cosplay actors, a chill-out room based on the hyper-modern apartment of Blade villain Deacon Frost, and several secret guests. Since this is America, fake blood will be used – a proprietary combination that Thump was able to try out first hand last Friday at a press preview. The party is being put on by BBQ Films, who specialize in “transforming iconic movie scenes into immersive parties.” They’ve recreated the going-out-of-business party from Empire Records, and this latest venture is sure to match expectations. If you’d like to attend, tickets are available here. Blade Rave will take place on October 9, 2015 at New York’s Terminal 5. THUMP readers get reduced-cost tickets with the discount code “IMMERSIVECINEMA”.
So i guess this is gonna become an on going thing now? Blood Raves are whats hot for 2015 and beyond. Before we start popping molly with fake blood pouring down our faces lets just clear the air for a second. The Amsterdam Blood Rave should be the only Blood Rave worth going to. After i blogged it i guess Blood Raves just took off (only 2 so far and i probably was inconsequential but whatever). That ones on Halloween which just makes it that much more special and acceptable. If you just get doused in blood on a random Fall Friday then you’re gonna look like a weird person. Trying to take the subway in that and people are gonna look at you like you’re some freak who looks like a giant tampon. And as much as i hate to say it, The Netherlands is a much better place to have something like this where they dont have the restraints of American Safety laws. I mean fake blood? thats not how Deacon Frost rolls. I know it sounds crazy but i need them to at least attempt to get real blood. Yea if you have to spill pigs or something but you got to at least try to get the real deal like the Netherlands rave.
Also knowing this is some sort of business set up by a company that does these things, making scenes in real life kind of takes some fun out of it. The other rave was just about a rave inspired by Blade. This one Is like trying to re make scenes and all that nonsense. If im there im there about the Blood Rave itself and not because its a business that recreates iconic scenes from movies. If i wanted to be apart of some weird fake blood fueled life imitating art thing thats one thing but this should be about another thing entirely. its about taking drugs and having chicks and guys getting super horny about the fact that blood is gonna rain down on them and there might be a little pain/ sex/drugs involved. Something tells me there’s gonna be an asshole telling you you can’t have sex in Deacon’s swanky New York apartment in this version of a blood rave and that’s just not right. If I’m on drugs humping and grinding all night to EDM music getting blood, real or fake, sprayed on me I’m gonna want to have sex with the closest piece of ass that will let me. That’s just how vampires do it.
Sidenote- I dont know a thing about Crystal Method aside that they have one song on Need For Speed Underground but in my head they would be whats playing at a blood rave.
The Netherlands will have its first ever “Blood Rave” – a dance party where dancers are sprayed with 5 thousand liters of blood – in Amsterdam on Halloween night. The event has been posted on Facebook, but with no specifics except for the date – October 31st – so far. A total of 728 guests have indicated that they are going. One of the organizers, who want to remain anonymous due to the nature of the event, told the AD that this is will be the first blood party in the world and the demand for it is high. The Blood Rave is based on the opening sequence of the 1998 vampire movie Blade. The opening shows a club full of dancing people suddenly sprayed with blood. The organizers want to use the same elements to recreate this scene. “In real life it is just more extreme.” one said to the newspaper. In terms of attendees, they expect somewhat “freaky” people in terms of personality. The organizers want to host a Halloween event that if focused less on pumpkins and kids and is “rawer and more exciting”. They are still trying to figure out whether it will be possible to use real blood, but that is what they want. “After a long search we have developed a special sprinkler system with pipes running across the ceiling and thus making us able to spray blood over the crowd. We’ve already tested it a number of times a substance resembling blood”, one of the organizers explained. “It is pushing the borders, but we want to see how far we can go.” Below is the opening sequence of Blade. Blood starts spraying out of the ceiling around the two minute mark and this may be disturbing to sensitive viewers.
Nothing like a fun fall evening dressed up in outfits, acting young, partying with the opposite sex and getting doused with thousands of liters of blood. I mean seriously this sounds like the event of the year. 3,400 people jam packed into some Amsterdam night club playing some new age EDM music that makes you want to do drugs and dry hump the nearest goth chick for like 36 hours straight. Barring any militant black half mortal, half immortal out to avenge his mother’s death and rid the world of vampires and any real vampires being there, it sounds like the wildest party in Europe on Halloween. Sure goth chicks are intimidating and weird, but its halloween, theres no better time to stick you’re dick in strange especially ones that get turned on by having bodily fluids rained upon them. Yea she’ll end up looking like Carrie and probably will catch an STD from the blood baptism but most likely if you end up going to a bangin euro night club and go home with a chick you’ll end up with an STD anyways.
