SATURDAY APRIL 11, 2015

Clique Vodka is sponsoring Packed Panda’s first fundraiser featuring the University of Pittsburgh’s Study Abroad Program. Come join us along with Kent Schmor Champagne Parties to support this amazing study abroad program, which has sent 1,707 students abroad this past year. Half of all the ticket proceeds will go directly towards a scholarship fund to help students in need of assistance to travel. Take a trip with us back to the Roaring 20’s, when America closed its doors to immigration after World War 1. Let’s open these new doors in style by uniting our community and the University of Pittsburgh at Uptown Pittsburgh’s ultimate rooftop lounge directly across from the Consol Energy Center in downtown Pittsburgh, so get your tickets now!

ENTERTAINMENT

The event will feature various electro-swing elements. For those unfamiliar with the electroswing movement: Electroswing music has its roots in the swing jazz music of the late 1920’s & early 1930s. By the early 1990s, swing samples & influences were becoming popular again. By 2004, the first attempts to fuse swing music with electronic house music started to appear, spawning the term ‘electroswing.’ The juxtaposed style rose to popularity in underground clubs around Europe (in cities like London, Paris, and Zurich) circa 2008-2010, and has since started to make its way into North America and Asia.

The University of Pittsburgh is not officially affiliated with this event.
