Lone Star Arena rave proves Houston can party with the best of ‘em

Disco Volante

Christine McCreary

The "Disco Nova" rave, presented by Green Dragon on Saturday night, rocked as the Lone Star Arena was transformed into a psychedelic playground of glowing laser lights and pulsating techno rhythms, featuring the music of Superstar DJ Keoki, Bad Boy Bill and Richard Humpty Vision, all of which were celebrating CD releases. 

At the arena there was even a giant castle-shaped dragon moonwalk where members of the crowd who where exhausted from dancing could go and chill out on its air-filled mattress.
