So we're all about to head into a fried desert with often-brutal winds, chilly nights and hot days and zero water in site. So what better way to prepare than a pool party!
Reno Passport and the Beach at GSR are teaming up to throw THE Burner party to link up at prior to taking off for the playa.
Hydration is intended to be a staging area and meeting place for those heading out to the playa in 2010. This year, Hydration will feature five local vendor booths showcasing local artisans, fashion designers, Reno Houseseats and more. Music by Bay Area icon Smoove plus Jonboy, The Mener and EJ Luera.

San Francisco scene builder Smoove emerged out of the 90’s drum ‘n bass scene in S.F. and quickly became a fixture of the underground Breakz circuit in 2001. These days, his signature mix of nu skool breakz, funk and electronic dance music can be heard every weekend all over San Francisco’s night life, from underground warehouse parties to his residencies at The End Up, 1015 and Mighty.
San Francisco-based Jonboy will perform at Hydration with a mix of Electro, Techno, House and Breaks. Since his early high school years at Chicago’s legendary Medusa’s nightclub, Jonboy has embraced all elemental sounds of electronic music. After moving to S.F., he has been exposed to the funky overtones of West Coast house that continue to shape his music today.
The Mener is a Reno-based electronic dance music DJ who brings a mix of electronic house music with an occasional break beat and reggae track to keep the crowd hooked. The Mener performs at electronic dance music events throughout the region.
Based out of Reno, EJ Luera is a DJ who has performed on just about every stage in town. EJ plays a variety of music, ranging from Hip Hop, Electronic Dance Music, House and Indie Rock.
Costumes and playa attire are strongly encouraged at Hydration. Presale tickets are available for $10 in Sparks at Prism Magic and in Reno at The Melting Pot World Emporium and Recycled Records. Tickets will be $15 at the door. For more event details, visit www.renopassport.com or download the Reno Passport iPhone events application. The Beach is located at 2500 E.
