11th january 2011
A disco punk night with performers, live act, fashion shows and…bath tubs
In the middle of the 1970’s, graphic designer and collective Kiki Picasso are part of the Punk movement throughout their drawings and collaborations with daily newspaper Liberation and magazines such as l’Echo des Savannes-Actuel-and Hara-kiri all part french underground press. An exhibition at the 104 was introducing Kiki’s work who created the visuals for this OUF party.A disco-punk night it was !, with artist such as James Chance and the Contorsions, Lydia Lunch and good Djs who entertained the audience with no wave classics. Special mention to Dj Producer Joakim who actuallly played all the anthems of the times-including an excellent remix of Shack up -followed by a good set by SAl Principato. from Liquid Liquid including vocal performances – I guess the Kloud Chamber was probably the only person who wasn’t fancy dressed that night-for it seemed like a 80’s fashion show. The audience mainly consisting in a cool gay& lesbian crowd (plus a selection of rather kinky heterosexuals) all acting as if they were in a We own the night remake. Anyhow, the party was alive and kicking thanks to the visuals and a lush dancefloor energy- Revival, revival…
Best time : The hot tub bath after Joakim’s set and an eclectic audience.
Worse time : 25mn to get a beer at a crowded bar !
