CRSSD Fest Announces Special ENTER.Sake Experience & After Dark Parties
CRSSD, San Diego’s premiere boutique festival for forward-thinking electronic music, is gearing up for this year’s fall edition next weekend at the city’s pristine Waterfront Park. With a two-day lineup already packed with the likes of Dixon, Lane 8, Destructo, Richie Hawtin, Marcel Dettman, and Rufus du Sol, CRSSD is a dream weekend for lovers of house, techno, live electronica and everything in between. But FNGRS CRSSD doesn’t stop there–the festival just released its lineup of day and After Dark parties, as well as a very special announcement from the ENTER camp.
Richie Hawtin is bringing his ENTER.Sake experience to San Diego in honor of International Sake Day, featuring a specially curated sake bar at CRSSD Festival on Sunday in partnership with Bang Bang Sushi Restaurant. CRSSD attendees will be able to sample ENTER’s signature ENTER.SAKE Black – Honjozo, the small batch brewed ENTER.SAKE Sookuu – Junmai, as well as the fragrant and aromatic ENTER.SAKE Silver – Junmai Ginjo, in a series of food and Sake pairings, and unique Sake cocktails. Hawtin will also host a fan facing Sake Pouring Hour on Oct 1, where he will discuss his passion for Sake, while pouring drinks and meeting fans.
Following the festival, the International Sake Day celebrations will continue into the night with an intimate performance with Hawtin at Bang Bang. Bang Bang is a performance venue built on the fusion of aural and edible exploration,and on International Sake Day will showcase world-renowned Techno and a finely tuned ENTER.Sake menu. Full talent lineup and signature sake cocktail listing to be announced.
If for some reason dark techno and sake tasting isn’t your thing (in which case, we shouldn’t be friends…), CRSSD has a boatload of other events going on Friday night to Sunday night to keep you more than occupied. My pick of the weekend might have to be All Day Dream’s Lee Burridge for a Friday weekend opener at Bang Bang, followed by a Saturday night DJ set from Breakbot, and finally Richie’s closing party. The tri-level Music Box will play host to a live set from Mura on Saturday and a Cut Copy DJ set alongside Gerd Jansen on the Sunday. For those wanting to get extra weird (I mean that in the best way possible), Spin will once again open its doors to CRSSD fans, this time for a Saturday showing from Patrick Topping and KINK Live, then a Sunday closing party from Solardo b2b Latmun. Chris Lake will takeover El Camino for a Saturday night party, with Kettner Exchange’s rooftop continuing the open air vibes with Bearson on Saturday afternoon and SAINT WKND on Sunday afternoon.
