Lobotomy Fancy Dress Allnighter

21/10/2008

Kahla Allan went to Lobotomy's Fancy Dress Allnighter at the Marcus Garvey


Fancy Dress is normally a phrase that makes me cringe! However at Lobotomy at the Marcus Garvey Centre on Saturday,  I was pleasantly surprised. People had put real thought and effort into their costumes and really this was the theme of the night.

The place looked fantastic!! The room was dressed with low netting which gave it a creepy feeling and this was assisted by costumed ravers and burlesque dancers on stage giving the heavy jungle beats a sultry sexy feel. There was also a chill out area which felt just like that. The music was slight muffled and there was many a cushion for one to rest there weary legs!

However the music was dark and dirty -just how it should be at the Garvey. The energy that came from DJ Shitmat was fantastic and the crowd were dancing from the minute they stepped in the door. The residents lobotomy DJ’s didn’t do to bad either. They provided a good mix of fun filled and underground tunes that kept us all stomping until the early hours.

The visuals for the evening were outstanding. There were several plasma screens that helped to promote the general feel of darkness and these were perfectly timed with the music. You could be forgiven for standing and staring at those for extended periods of time despite the dancing frenzy around you. The other thing that made the Lobotomy Fancy Dress Allnighter one of the best nights of the year was the people. This is a totally inclusive night, so you can come down with your sister, your housemate, your student friends or your gran and they all would have had a rip roaring time.

Since the smoking ban we can all agree that there has been change in atmosphere when inside a venue. This was handled this really well. The venue had a designated outside smoking area which became more of a forum for people to show off their fabulous outfits, and let me tell you haven’t lived until you’ve had a fag with Death himself! This was an excellent effort form the lobotomy crew and an enjoyable night was had by all in attendance. But don’t just take my word for it Lobotomy runs a smaller club night at Blueprint in Radford! Enjoy!

Lobotomy Fancy Dress Allnighter was at the Marcus Garvey Centre on Saturday 18 October 2008.
