In a casual speakeasy atmosphere
A word from co-curator, Glenn Webb,
"So James and I were sitting around imagining what kind of event we'd really like to go to, with lots of variety, but with a distinct feel. We also wanted to keep it casual, so that folks can chat, as well as openly react to any of the performances. And the performances should be less restricted and formal, with the understanding that only grownups who aren't easily offended would be there, ready for whatever happens next.
James looked into prohibition-era speakeasy culture, and the psuedonym Blind Tiger came up, which definitely evokes the wild, beautiful, and unexpected, at the risk of lacking clear direction. Just what we were looking for."
