Vice - ice - baby - inside the Hate Crew pt. 2
Well, actually not this much. Because Bea told me before which hazzles she has had with the organisers of the Vice Launch Party - they didn't really have a clue what kind of technical equipment they'll have to have if they wanna have a concert with Children Of Bodom and/or Babyshambles. But - they didn't have a clue either how to handle people coming in or running out of the building as well, and this developed to be a pain in the ass.
Well, at least we had no problem coming in... But you could only get to the "custom made*" dressing rooms through a plunge of people, stuck with no possibillity to go here or there. Well, this unfortunately had some system: To the best dancefloor you only got through the same stairs. In the "VIP lounge" you were supposed to get some free drinks, so all the filthy pseudo-hipsters of this fuckin capital were tryin to get there. Egoism first. Funny enough that all of the reviews rated the party from "boring" (Spiegel online) to "a desaster"
(Dorfdisco Berlin). Funny the rumours aside, that the organizers of the Rio Club got kind of a wild card to get this building running as a half-legal location for "scientifical purposes", even though they seemed to be not competent enough to run the original Rio in "Mitte". Strange that there was no magazine lying around even though it was the lounch party. A desaster the dvd interview team (oh, where's my camera man!? eyes wide open...). Typical brazen Brits were Clor - who came to late in the afternoon, but wanted to play 30 minutes longer in the evening...
The nicest incident was the energy break down, when I learned to know the organizer of the HipHop project Shok Muzik
Gorgeous Bea, who fought a way for the band out of this. And, the Roope of the day: "Down in the lobby I spoke to a plant."
