Cypress Hill dominates rave; list of upcoming local shows

Disco Volante

Christine McCreary

 Halloween came to Houston early Saturday night as ravers dressed up like angels, butterflies, demons, cigarettes and shaving cream -- not to mention those more daring souls who came dressed in transparent bubble wrap.

 They packed the De Andas Ballroom for "Fun Haus Halloween 2000," an all night rave party presented by Bigtyme Productionz and Houstonraves.com.

 The rave featured three stages, with two dance floors where DJs such as New York's Ani, Chicago's DJ3D, Houston's DJ Noi-Zee and Austin's Luna kept the crowd dancing all night as they spun their best stuff.

 The highlight of the evening came when Cypress Hill and DJ Muggs took over the stage around 1:30 a.m., continuing their set for more than an hour.

 Giving an awesome performance, Cypress Hill performed old-school favorites off of its Black Sunday album, including "I Wanna Get High," "I Ain't Goin' Out Like That," "When The Sh-- Goes Down" and "Cock The Hammer."

 So what's in store for the next two weeks?
