The White Rabbit Reunion Weekend will return to the Paper Tiger at the end of August, bringing an eclectic lineup of ska, metal, metalcore and punk that’ll bring back fond memories of growing up in SA.

For those who don't know, the White Rabbit was a long-running rock venue that, until its 2015 closure, occupied the current Paper Tiger location. Owned by the late Rick Sciaraffa, the club provided a home to SA up-and-comers while serving as a tour stop for an array of rock bands and a sprinkling of hip-hop acts.

“We do this event year to raise money for a music scholarship for a student in Rick Sciaraffa's memory,” said Twin Productions talent buyer and senior promoter rep Jennifer Holt.

What's more, the event remembers and celebrates the community that surrounded the White Rabbit, said Holt, who once co-owned the club.

“Also it's just a good fucking time,” she added.
