Glowkids & Fuse at RISE

Glowkids & Fuse at RISE

At: 306 Stuart St., Boston. Fri/Sat, 1-6 a.m. Tickets: $10 members, $20 guests. Open to ages 18+.

The deal: The masked electronic duo Glowkids & Fuse will be at RISE to celebrate their double birthdays. “Fuse has blossomed into an incredible pillar of electronic music,” said resident DJ and general manager Mike Swells of the former RISE intern. “Things are coming full circle.” RISE expects to see many respected local electronic artists coming to celebrate the birthdays as well. “If you’re not there for the music, you’re not going for the right reasons,” said Swells, who believes RISE has maintained this ideology since it opened in 1998. “Come with energy and an open mind to let your guard down and enjoy time with your friends.’’

The sounds: Mikey Maags and DKD open the night on the main floor. Eludis + Achille will be downstairs in the Lounge, providing a relaxing contrast to the more intense fare upstairs. “Both of the rooms are unique and attractive with their own energy,” said Swells. “You find yourself floating naturally between the two.”

The dress: No dress code, but wear comfortable shoes.

The drink: RISE is alcohol-free, but, said Swells, “We have a juice bar with Red Bull and other energy drinks.”

The tip: “A line may form when other bars are letting out at 2 a.m. and we never hold the line artificially,” said Swells.
