Last night’s lesson: small people don’t mosh well

bt

Last night happened to be the third day running I ended up at the Nouveau casino (Wednesday: the very crazy glaswegian this, Thursday: a surreal shoot for them). Nouveau Casino, a small venue in the 11th/Oberkampf area is right next to the Café Charbon. For the album launch of Beat Torrent (French turntablist duo DJ Pfel & DJ Atom – won 4 x World DMC Team Champions as part of C2C) they put the two spaces together. Making a kind of ‘chilled’ café area (pictured above with DJ B-Loo) and than an absolute carnage main area in the nouveau casino space.

I went along with another petite person. We did try and mosh it out at the front with the crazy Beat Torrent fans. All I can say is that small people don’t mosh well. Last time I moshed was at a N.E.R.D. concert and that was even crazier. Moshing in between hip hop hoodies and girls throwing themselves against the stage to get just that bit closer to Pharrell…plain madness to say the least.

Forget the V.I.P. area there should be a P.P. (=Petite Person) area for us to mosh around without getting knocked in the head by elbows and having smelly armpits in our mouths. Anyway Strip Steve certainly did a good job warming the crowd up:

It then turned into absolute carnage when BT got to the decks. Mixing Nirvana, Daft Punk, Beastie boys… you name it certainly made the crowd wild. Scratch Perverts followed but by then PP & I were ready to do a runner as it was just too rammed (they had let way too many people in). And by then the Nouveau casino was smelly like a boys locker room with the heat of a sauna. Not nice!

Big thanks to VICE for the tickets 🙂
