GASLAMP KILLAHHHH //

March 8th, 2010 by Nicole Norelli

Mister KillahIt’s official! A gig and a venue like no other in Perth certainly gave you a night to remember. Into an intimate 170 capacity, with pizza on arrival, the event was strictly bring your own, with plenty of champagne popped over head, sweat, fashionistas, politicians, the who’s who of the art community, the posers, the doers, the promoters, the originators, the creators, the models, the painters, the artists and the self-claimed artistes, the fixers, skaters, rockstars, and musos all let loose in the club: Welcome to The Bird.

Opening with an exclusive prequel secret show last Thursday, who could have given a better blessing for the newest underground music venue in Perth than by the muthafucking Gaslamp Killer.

NAIK jump started the night and played a passionate live set, setting the pace for when GLK arrived, and for a man who shares a similiar and well known story to Perthites, (inspired to name himself the Gaslamp Killer in disgust for much of the patronage in the downtown Gaslamp District bar scene in his hometown San Diego, which led to him uprooting and relocating to Los Angeles, where he found a niche for himself amid the city’s massive underground party scene), the MFGLK served well as the evening’s psychadelic Master of Ceremonies.

A fairly straightforward recipe for success, GLK launched into what can best be described as a trippy initiation ritual proceeding into definitive dubstep and left-field hip-hop mashups climaxing with a drum and bass finale. All I can say is it was one hell of a show. A massive congratulations to Mike and Brenton, for bringing a much needed and most highly anticipated new music venue to Northbridge, Perth and the {move} crew for getting GLK back to Perth!
