Rare Earth Gig or Party ?

Rare Earth(1)A09A3090

Last night, there was a gig or party in a corner of north London, somewhere

undisclosed address, having had 100 of the visitors.  —– In fact, the place was

a disused office building occupied by 40 of the Artists or Musicians —– it was

said to be 37 people are living though, always having their friend etc staying,

so about 70 is the population there.

The performance was Experimental Jazz kind of live music and many

live DJs, mostly rather experimental techno kind  —– still some were

quite  danceable good beats, not just an out of rhythm loud noise. 

So, I had an opportunity to have some rapid steps.  🙂

Those photos are for those who participated the performance, to download

and use for their own promotion, hence I didn’t put their names here.

Any how they are my friend’s friends etc.

The place is not only undisclosed, but officially not exists, hence it’s a kind

of a vacuum in the society = more likely in other planet.  Some of residents

might have found a freedom and a free studio, free rehearsal, performance

space and some are just having a gap time in their life.  

And as the Artists respects each others, despite its chaotic looks, it’s quite

relaxed nice atmosphere there ( — and the kitchen looks very clean !)  

—– So, I might go back there again.

    Interesting. Live music, rapid steps and a clean kitchen. I would go back.

      In fact this kind of gatherings happening quite often. Any society has its underground sub-culture
      and its community. As I’ve been kept involved, I was still accepted by them
      — may be my dance or steps and occasional Miso-soup cooking for them is working as a Pass port
      and a photo of frank Zappa makes their mouth shut. 😀
      (otherwise, I could be seen utterly out of sort to their community)

    Wonderful images, they do portray a peaceful vibe in a way. your fish-eye images are always fascinating, Yoshizen.

      Thank you Karen. The truth is, Fish-eye lens is working as a lazy-man’s lens.
      Under a dim-light, just click then clop the photo later. 😀

    A fun set of images! You’ve really captured the atmosphere.
