Heyaaa! Can’t believe it’s just over two weeks untill the TAA kicks off, hopes everyone is as excited about it as we are!! Last Sunday we had another Super Successful second fundraiser, a crazy combination of strange visual installations, weeeeird electronic sounds (in a grimey basement) and funky pop in the garden, so thanks again to everyone who came along and it made it possible- it was awesome to meet so many new faces!
Luckily for this fund raiser we were not trying to make a roast, so food wise we were totally chilled out and on the ball, with a huge pot of scrumptious Coconut Curry that had been whipped up the night before. In the morning we somehow managed to whack out 3 different cakes, finalise the projections, lighting and run electric (safely!!!) down to the basement. Of course like last time it was not long before 4pm arrived but by this the time the sound system downstairs had been set up and the basement was looking truely wonderfully weird and sounding awfully fantastic. In one room we had a collection of trippy photos and films being projected, in another a creepy shrine complete with hanging massacred dolls limbs and a nodding cat, and the end room a crazy tangled mess of wool, colour and cables!
We were delighted to have Doromball playing for us again and he started up his psychedelic tunes in the yard as it begin to fill up with people. The rice was cooked, the curry was served, the fire was lit and it was not long before trying to find somewhere to sit outside became a slight challenge due to the number of humans!! I know I mentioned this earlier but it really was so wonderful to meet so many new people who had ventured out to this event, and that so many people want to make the TAA happen!!
As people tucked into cake, (notably the gluten free sticky toffee being a favourite!), Little Eris took to the stage, her first performance in 2015 and since having her little one. In true Little Eris style it was a poptastic, fun and sparkly affair with great uplifting vocals. Dusk set in and the basement started up with live electronic music production. Stereoripe filled the walls with bouncy squelchy and bulgeing vibes followed by Melltith whose droney techno merged into the visually hectic room. Finally we had DJs WOWZA that got us all jumping to some DnB and a surprise set from Greggerz blasting out some hardcore to finish off the night.
Nice one to everyone that came and thanks for all the generous donations!! We have one more fundraiser, an Acoustic night with Faith Taylor and Cosmo on the 26th of April be awesome to see loads of you there. Then of course the TAA will be launching on the 29th April. Busy exciting time folks!!!!
