and its set up so there are five or six people playing in different rooms or areas.
and people walk round on like a tour
and Cut Hands in another and Keiji Haino in another and that bloke who can't play drums properly from Hella in another. and the audience is split into six groups and you move from one room to another.
Back when I was a kid in the 80s. It would set up at a different machine shop-like place every week. Big places. Drill presses and CNC machines and metal filings on the floor.
In one room they'd have go-go dancers on pedestals, painted in neon stuff that would glow-in-the-dark with blacklights. A band in another room. Another room would show the Great Rock 'n Roll Swindle or some creepy sex film on the wall. Another DJ in another room. Everybody dressed goth.
Just as awesome as it sounds ;) Of course, these kind of things never last.
because this happens all the time.
not just like a few mates doing it
Once saw Jane's Addiction play at an auto junk yard. No reason to think this sort of thing stopped just cos I got old and lost touch with the hip crowd.
the idea is that these artists are all improvising or playing a themed set in different rooms, and you move between one and the other. maybe with storytellers too.
not just like gigs in warehouses or abandoned buildings.
which I think is what you were talking about. You should start such a thing, Jordan. Do it right, and you could launch a career from it.
Go-go girls. That's the key!
Was supposed to see Evangelicals at some industrial art studio a couple years back, but LAPD was all over it. Shut it down quick. In the old days, they'd say fuck it -- we have more important things to do.
Nowadays everything is a felony. *shrugs*
Nah, your idea is too artsy. The kind of thing at a street fair, like Sunset Junction, where you stop for the artsy poet/storyteller for 2 minutes before moving on.
Liquor, Women in 60's cocktail dresses, A disturbing sexual vibe, Loud music with danceable beats, and Heavy equipment. That's the ticket.
