If you've been dying to get a sneak peak at Sanctum, Steven Rogers' newest dance club, tonight's your chance.
The nightlife entrepreneur is holding a "soft opening" of the establishment starting at 8 p.m. with DJs Kevin Brown and Chris Shannon on the record decks spinning tribal house music.
Much like Rogers' other joints Palazzo and DWNTWN, Sanctum will be open long past midnight (doors don't close until 4 a.m.), which means it's the perfect place to hang out after First Friday is over with and done.
Rogers has also given us the 411 on the various dance nights he'll be featuring at the club, which follows on the jump.
The weekly slate of DJs starts out on Wednesdays with .anti_space's Scot McKenzie spinning ambient/chill grooves and other electronic tracks, and Thursdays offers the "Divas in the House" night featuring house and trance music.
The "Pagan's Playground" kicks off next Friday night with Kevin Brown and Chris Shannon dropping some tribal house on your ass, while "Euro Satyrdays" will serve up even more trance music.
Rogers says there's also an electro night in the works for the First Sunday of the month, which should launch sometime later in the fall. Stay tuned to Up on the Sun for more details.
