last friday night brought with it the fantastic occasion of the 2nd birthday party of the amazing skribble gebibble, and how it was simply wonderful indeed. mention must immediately be made of how much time and effort the skribble folk put into their events, and for this one they went above and beyond the call of duty. three rooms of music and art, filled to the brim with beautifully lit installations and adornments, making for the most magical venue for the evenings proceedings.
i had the marvelous honour of beginning the nights live music in the main room, and was so warmly received by the great crowd of folk already gathered, and how much i enjoyed performing, including being able to play the splendid 'aqualung zodiak cancer' for the first time, amongst a whole host of other favourite songs. the night then went on from strength to strength, and how i would have to make special mention of being able to cross paths with th'mole again, getting to see his astonishing set and spending some more time with the man himself after a long spell indeed.
more than six-hundred folk made it down in the end, and how the atmosphere was one of the most relaxed party imaginable. sadly, how it always races by far too quickly, and before we knew it, the dawn was beginning to rise. still, such wonderful memories of another wonderful time with the skribble family, and all the oberhausen/mülheim/essen folk. we were made to feel so very welcome as always, and simply cannot wait until it is time to return.
should you be located anywhere in the vicinity but are not yet familiar with the skribble gebibble events, or should you be on the other side of the world but intrigued as to why what they do is so very special, then you simply must wander past their website, peruse a photo gallery, 'like' them on facebook, or check the agenda to see what is coming up next... perhaps the thought of noah23, ceschi, or brad hammers passing through in the very near future might whet the whistle for your potential involvement.
keep safe . be well
