The po arrived just when the party spirit was climbing (around 1.30). I guess the security patrol in the area got spooked by the completely full parking lot (no joke!) and 350+ people hanging around. The po arrived in full force (10 or 12 of them) and then stood around sort of stupefied at the full-on hippy freak-out that was going on (it was an om renuion it seems). Anyhow they were pretty respectful to the people, though they managed to scare most of them away. I couldn't convince them to let us keep the music going...they wanted us to tear down the gear, so we started moving shit around and looking busy and finally they left (about 45 later)....then we swiftly put it all back up and carried on until about 8.00 when the next shift of po came around (music died for about 10 minutes, they left, music went back on). Yeah, so those 100 or so who had the patience to stick around had a pretty good time...even a bunch of hulla ravers turned up in the morning. I think next time we'll find a lower profile venue...stay tuned
p.s. don't forget to check out our bi-weekly event at Labyrinth Lounge (this friday), featuring psy-trance upstairs and melodic/uplifting trance downstairs...cover is $5
