Strizhov and XBOCT live @

Live act by Strizhov and Khvost

in short : success beyond any expectations, despite Todd (the bar owner) going nuts about the freezer switching off and the place being overcrowded.
Review by Mike M.D.|
Yestersay's (Sept. the 30th) SYNTHETIKA drugs' gathering at KOROVA MILK BAR was probably the most memorable out of the whole sequence of such events we (PRODAC) have produced so far. After almost two months of existance of our weekly Tuesday's SYNTHETIKA we start really seeing the results, and some of them are of unexpected scale... Yesterday we have had two very special performances: poetry readings by our drugs Dmitry Strizhov and Alexey Khvostenko (aka Khvost) along with experimental electronic sounds carefully selected and mixed by our experienced DJ D-Gree. Each performance had lasted for about 30 minutes: Strizhov went first, and then Khvost "closed" the artistic part of the evening. There were computer animated visuals, as usual, but this time we have also had something else: using movable slide projector, our drugs Spektor and Krot were shooting the images of their art works to the specially designed screen, walls and faces of people. I, Mike M.D., was hosting, and X8, as usual, was providing good vibes. Even though the beginning of tusovka was announced at 10:00 pm, the place has gotten virtually packed at 9:30, and by 10:45 we had to close the doors since with the official capacity of 150 people, by that time there was at least 250 tusovshchiks at KOROVA. The crowd was great, and so the vibe was like at the best parties I went to. Among the visitors there were Boris Grebenshikov (AQUARIUM) and Yuri Shevchuk (DDT). There were, of course, some nedostatki (since we didn't expect that many people, we have only had one bartender and no security system, and so some people didn't get served or treated properly), but the most common thing I have heard yesterday was "Spasibo! That was great!" We're definitely going to take everything into account for the next time... After the main part of the ceremony everybody was enjoying the moloko with the trip-hop sounds of another drug of ours -- DJ USUL (Space Kadets Collective). Don't forget -- PRODAC's SYNTHETIKA @ KOROVA MILK BAR takes place every Tuesday. Besides our regular hangouts, some special events are on their way, such as our "HELL-O-WEEN" party and an experimental movie presentation by Vadim Pevzner. Those are for October, so look forward to them! Check back here for event schedules. For now -- PEACE! Mike M.D.
