Remember that opening scene from the 1998 film Blade when an unsuspecting club-goer enters a vampire-filled nightclub that rains blood from the ceiling? Kind of hard to forget a scene like that, and the badass party has spawned a handful of reincarnations. But few (if any) will be able to contest will this year's Blade Rave presented by BBQ Films and New York Super Week at Comic Con.

Taking place on October 9th at 7:30pm EST in New York City, the immersive vampire party will include an array of Blade-themed activities such as a screening of the original film, cosplay actors dressed as Blade characters, sword-fighting demos by Sword Class NYC, projected visuals, raffles & giveaways and - most importantly - a performance by The Crystal Method at Terminal 5 featuring a "synthetic" blood rain segment during the show.

The Blade Rave will be an experience unlike any other, and EDM.com has paired with the event to give one lucky fan a truly unique experience. The grand prize winner will receive two passes to the event, a Meet & Greet with The Crystal Method that includes sword-fighting lessons with the duo, and a month of free sword-fighting lessons from Sword Class NYC.
