This past Saturday we went to Plastic People and witnessed a classic Theo Parrish set from beginning to end. The night was even more special because it could be the last time Theo played at Plastic People. In case you haven’t heard it yet, the club is being threatened with closure by the city and police of London. If you’ve never been to Plastic People before you might wonder what all the fuzz is about. Plastic People is a place like none other, besides from being one of the birthplaces of several styles such as broken beat & dubstep, it’s a unique space in itself. The space is small and the dancefloor has no added lights other than those necessary such as those at the bar. This means you practically have a dark dancefloor where you can dance and enjoy the music the way you choose to. Plastic People also has a unique soundsystem that vibrates through the whole space. Theo Parrish said it’s probably the best sound installation in a small venue. To make a long story short, we need to unite to keep Plastic People from being closed. At the end of his set Theo gave a classic speech of which we were able to record a part, listening to this should give you an idea of the vibe of the night. If you haven’t already, sign the petition and help save Plastic People!
