MARDIGLOW: Riddims Style

Friday, 22 Feb 2012 | Status Nightclub, Gainesville, FL

Merging the ideas of Mardi Gras and its grandfathered celebration of Bacchanal, “Mardi Glow” kicked off the idea of a glowing dancehall fete. The perfect balance of masks, glow sticks, and beads captured the cultures of New Orleans, Trinidad, and Jamaica, and brought this Riddims event alive in a major way. With the help of the Riddims Empresses masqued, painted, and beaded, and a beads contest at midnight we turned the crowd out. All in all, this event has earned its spot in the Aviators lineup.
