To celebrate the launch of The Escape Pod Group we threw a party last Thursday night.
It was a neopagan bacchanal with a slight tinge of Satanism. And fire.
There was lots of fire.
And Metal.Thank you Hairbangers Ball, you just killed it.
And metal grinding! And lots of sparks.Thanks to grindress extraordinaire, Miss Ammunition. You were great.
And fire dancers! You were so cool Nicki Cacciato.
And a specially constructed druidic wicker man. Who went up in flames. Just as he was supposed to.
And a DJ who kept the fire burning long into the night. Thanks White Boy Matt.
And let’s not forget the amazing grub from our two food trucks: Piko Street Kitchen and DonerMen. That currywurst was the proverbial bomb.
Thanks to all who came. There must have been 500 attendees at the peak, I’m guessing.
Thanks to our neighbor Hey You! (Yes, that is his legal name. He’s that cool.) Thanks for letting us use your amazing post-apocalytic space. Without you it would have been just another ad agency party.
Special shout out to Escape Podders Harper and Kelly for putting these awesome video invites together. That’s Harper in the Mad Max looking outfit.
And muchas gracias to Celia and Heather for getting the word out and helping pull the whole thing together.
Thanks to Jimmy and Jared for making the Satan booth with their bare hands. It was a work of art guys.
And thanks to partners OutCold for whipping up a real wicker man that went up in flames in seconds.
Clara Malkin gets special praise for doing Herculean work and suffering injuries in the process. It was a lot of physical work and mental stress. You were indefatigable!
Bravo to all who helped. And cheers to all who came. We will have a bit of trouble topping this party next year. But we will do it.
