Saturday Night at Spark…

Wow. A memorable evening. Great music, particularly by Ben Nevile and Andrew Pask and then by Randy Jones. Ben and Andrew did a trance inducing set of interlocking polyrhythms and modal melodies, whereas Randy got more insane dance grooves going while singing about, ahem, “My Little Pony,” among other things.

Somehow, at the end of the evening (4am) at our usual hang, the Hard Times Cafe, Roy Carroll (who joined Andrew and I on many adventures this trip) and I heard about a big rave going on. Well, we decided to go. It was pretty insane. Photos to come later. As I dropped my camera and broke it about 6am while grooving to the DJs…Back to the story. As we were walking up, I was joking around speaking faux German to Roy when this hyper-rave-fiend comes up to us and says, “Dudes, are you German, are you? Are you? I love Germans, say something in German!” So I said, “yah, yah, my name is Dieter and this is Heinrich. Is dis das rave?” Well, we led the guy on, and it turns out he was involved in the production and got us in for free….saved us 20 bucks each…also gave us his number in Miami and told us to visit next time we were in the states…
