At the Black Market at the Anderson
this last Saturday May 29, 2021,
Space kitty floated to outer space 🪐 on groovy vibes.
Tie dye t-shirts shirts from Karina SantaRossa and Irian Cordova
of Celestial Kitty Clothing are a great fit for summer.
Fresh colorful cut offs reminded me of childhood memories.
She wasn’t the only kitty around. DJ Rippin’ Kitty
spun alternative dance favorites
with a gothic, new wave flava.
Rock band Creature Cage
Blew us away to outer space 🪐
What a blast 💥 of bodies swirling into a mosh pit
I got scared for a minute inside the bar
Pushed back from thrust of musculuar bodies
against the chairs on tables pushed back
to make room on the dance floor
adorned with a shiny disco ball.
But it’s fun to feel scared sometimes
Like when watching our favorite
horror movies 🎥 as kids
Some of us, the goths, still do.
The Black Market is no stranger to the goth and punk
aesthetic and there were plenty us weirdos present,
The artists, the creators, the innovators
all vibed to eachother’s lights and the lights
Provided by the Anderson
In its hip good-vibin atmosphere
With string lights around
An exterior of gardens.
Brightened up our day
With their vibrant smiles
And positive energy
There were so many artists and artistans
One could never name them all,
But a few stood out to me.
Vibrella, a unison of Vibration (Vibra) and Star (Estrella),
made some tea magic. The tea vendor made hot and cold
concoctions served for utmost relaxation.
They even had a special kratom
mix that was definitely lit.
Tesorocarolina is a real tesoro (treasure). The graceful artist
could be seen live painting a girl with a red mushroom head.
We were all tripping on it.
The event organizer Panther was inspired
to provide an entertainment
space for the alternative community.
It’s a place for a blend of cultures.
There was something for everyone.
radiated the healing peaceful grounding
vibrations of nature
It was comfortably bustling but a few
People had to wait in line to get inside
To see the bands
There was really something for everyone at the Black Market. I can only see it getting better.
