Last week I went to a How To Be a Cult Leader show. My friend Mel was doing the visuals with Space is Ace. I liked the setup and atmosphere of the show a lot. There were different musicians dotted around the room in the small theatre, and they would each play one or two songs in turn, with a 10 minute bar/toilet break every so often. There were also projections and lights directed at the two side walls. It was quite tricky to take photos, because the theatre was dark, but there were also a lot of vibrant colours I wanted to do justice to without leaving the performers blurred.
My friend Mel put on a space-themed night at Power Lunches with some other students from her MA course. I helped out by designing the flyer, helping with decorating, and djing in the bar. I had a really good time, but I really don’t have anything nice to say about the behaviour of the three other St Martin’s students.
The night was really popular though, the place was packed, and everyone seemed to have a good time, which was the important thing.
