The Tragedy @ Le Bain
Shallow Gal is soooo sad to report that Le Bain is no more. The door got tough. All our lovely( sexy) bitches and hipster kids are being shut out by constant police raids, ID scares…. if only America was 18 and up to party. If only.
So where did the good times go? They were carried off by the po-po on Friday, the 8th of July. Mad Decent was in house (Munchi, Jillionaire), and the door was INSANE. Busy by midnight, but then boom crash. The police kept combing the crowd, raiding for “underagers”, determined to kill a nightlife jewel in the wake of old hag wrath.
Things have gotten ugly. IDs must be made in America, they must appear to be real….
I gave it one last try on Saturday (Night People w DJ Mehdi) and it BOMBED. A smorgasborg of dried out sausage with a sprinkling of short/fatty chicas and voracious middle aged euros on the prowl, seeking a lil bump me/pick me up for the night.
But don’t fret, this is a wake-up call. I should be paying more attention to newer venues, like Mulberry Project, Bunker, Westway, Miss Lily’s, and Mister H. All feature cool music, crowds, and something fresh. Here are some pics in commemoration of our hot spot of better days. ( All taken by Keetja Allard on Friday, July 8th).
