The Daybreaker dance party makes its LA debut at Wurstkuche, Tuesday September 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. Here's what to expect.
Most raves last until the wee hours of the morning whereas this one just gets going at sunrise. For two hours, Venice's go-to beer and rattlesnake sausage hangout on Lincoln Blvd. will be transformed into a one-time-only dance party set to the soulful beats of DJ Eric Sharp. Expect colorful props, performers mixed in among the crowd, and if that's not enough to get you going, the brass horns section will guarantee you're wide awake and ready to face the day.
Here it's all about the natural high, except for a caffeinated jolt courtesy of Groundworks Coffee and other sponsors including Runa Tea, Just Chill, Clearly Kombucha, Amazonia Coconut Water, and KIND bars.
"We picked Venice because the community is so strong and this is the type of thing that we could see people living/working in Venice really latching onto," says Daybreaker organizer Andre Herd. "We picked Wurstkuche for the event because it is in the heart of Venice, is an amazing space, and has a Brooklyn feel to it, which is where Daybreaker was started."
Matthew Brimer and Radha Agrawal came up with the Daybreaker experiment over falafel in Williamsburg late one night/early one morning after they had been out at the clubs. They wanted to create the opposite of a typical club experience here you leave feeling lucid, healthy and invigorated. Daybreaker was so well received in New York, that it expanded to more cities including San Francisco, London, and now Venice Beach.
So what should you wear? If you want to give your Burning Man ensemble a second go, here's your chance. If you prefer a plain white tee and boardshorts, that's cool too. We'd imagine lots of local yoginis getting their groove on in flashy yoga pants as well. You do you. This is Venice after all. Really, anything goes.
