ART THEME

On one level – this year we merge nebulous theories of injecting UV light with inspiration from the 1966 sci-fi film and numerous other “tiny-submarine-in-the-body” adventures while resuscitating the powerful glow within our community.  On another level… Where is fashion going in this new era?  What will the Roaring 2020’s be about
and what kind of costume vibes shall we activate on June 12th? For this night, consider retro sci-fi psychedelia including any form of neon swim-wear, UV spandex and fluorescent-medical. BLB is about any form of light art & UV reactivity and, this year we consider our special circumstances and shine twenty+ black light cannons at them!
