Just Blaze’s reOPENed Party at Santos Party House Was Shut Down After the Police Raid There, But Will Return In December


Those who stopped by the recently beleaguered Santos Party House last weekend would have found the place incongruously shuttered, and Friday’s regular party, the Just Blaze/DJ Soul-hosted reOPENed, mysteriously absent. This was fall-out from the club’s “legal wrangling,” in the words of a Santos spokesman, with the city over drug deals that went down in the venue over the summer. Since the raid on their property, Santos has been operating as a live music venue, but not yet as a dance club again, but sometimes the difference has been unclear. (“Our apology goes out to everyone who came by the party last week and to anybody we may have inconvenienced,” wrote the reOPENed kids a couple weeks ago.) They were supposed to come back this Friday, but the club tells us that reOPENed’s return has been pushed back another two weeks. But still: at long last, dance music is coming back to Santos Party House. With a special guest, no less…

Mannie Fucking Fresh! The Cash Money producer will cap a run of benefits there over the next couple weeks for, among other things, Tommy Vext and the OUTMUSIC Foundation. In the meantime, Just Blaze is taking his talents to Le Poisson Rouge: he’ll be at their Freedom Party tomorrow. We look forward to everything returning to normal after Thanksgiving.
