Back from the Soap&Skin gig at Union Chapel and my mind is suitably blown. It was more a theatrical production than a gig, taking you through the eye of the apocalypse raging inside one woman's mind. Not bad for someone who used to live on a farm.
If you ever get a chance to go to Union Chapel, go. It's a converted church that has a suitably regel atmosphere, except for the top floor which does literally seem to be collapsing. Structural integrity aside it's probably one of the nicest venues I've ever been to, although I can't imagine every gig working here.
Anja Plaschg is an immense presence and there were a couple of moments I did actually fear for the audience's safety as the atmosphere got a little confrontational. No matter, they loved it, bloody loved her and it was all part of the show. There was one trick she pulled in particular that I really thought was clever, but I'll go into all that when the full write-up hits GodisintheTV later this week.
So long, children!
