Meet Rail Up, LA's Emerging Party Series (Red Bull) / by Adam Cooper


Over the years, despite a lack of social media presence, the party has outgrown many of its original venues — the mailing list has grown to include 3,000 subscribers just by word-of-mouth. Success has aroused concerns among the three founders that the party would lose the renegade spirit that made it special in the first place. “Technically speaking, parties always die,” Cooper said. “But what we have, and the way we approach it, is very non-traditional and it hasn't been seen before. It won't lose it, but it won't be easy to keep it.”
