Hey, you amazing people! How are you? First of all, I’d like to apologise for last week’s blog that wasn’t out in time, but I was seriously betrayed by technology. My laptop kind of died on me; I thought WordPress saved my draft, but unfortunately it didn’t and I had to rewrite every single word! If you ask me, I am sooo tired from this week that I really want some vacation! I mean really, do I have to wait 26 more days to finally go on holiday? Of course I will keep you all updated about my trip and share all my experiences with you. It’s going to be so much fun; I hope at least. I’m going to be spending it somewhere new and exciting, and I can’t wait! But this trip is still some time away, so let’s focus on yesterday’s epic party at Electric Ballroom in Camden.
It was the first time this party was organised in London. If you are wondering what it was about, it was a celebration of all things 80s, 90s and 00s! It was all about the songs you’ve loved in the past, all about the guilty pleasures of years gone by. If you know me, you must have realised that I just love this kind of songs, and you can find evidence here. This Epic party was all that, plus it had the added benefit that it was Greek! I can’t remember the last time I was in London and I went to a Greek party. Actually I remember; it was last year when I went to Trashformers and let me tell you THAT was a party to end all parties! Unfortunately I missed this summer’s Trashformers party as I was in Greece, recuperating from surgery.
Anyway, I had high hopes for this party! My friends were there and we would dance and have a good time. We laughed a lot, took a lot of pictures, but unfortunately I was too tired to stay until the end! I think the best part of the night was when we danced the Macarena. OMG, it’s been such a long while since I did that, as the last time was at a wedding some years ago (I can’t remember when actually…) Apart from Greek hits of the 80s and 90s, they also played international ones, like Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones and some recent ones, like the Subways.
My impressions of the party? Overall, a positive one. I loved how they organised the event, the little stickers they gave us, the two big signs at the entrance of the Electric Ballroom. It was such a Greek thing to do! It was fun and making fun of our culture in my view. The music was party music, it was party anthems all night long! The only drawback? There were too many Greek party songs that I hadn’t heard! If only the DJs played Greek music all night long! And if only these kinds of parties happened every other weekend! I think after quite a while abroad, I miss this music a great deal, so whenever I hear of a party like that, I just buy a ticket! What can I do? I am just a girl that loooves a good party!
As I have probably said before, if you ever feel down, listening to music from the 80s and 90s will instantly bring you to life (yes, I mean life of the party!). It’s a guaranteed success in my opinion! So, if you’ve heard of any 90s parties in and around London, do take the chance to attend! I know there are plenty in London, as I am constantly bombarded on Facebook (d*#n you, Facebook!). On another note, what I would really like to do sometime next year is to attend one of Ultimate Power nights. It’s supposed to be a night full of power ballads and for under £15 ticket, I’d definitely consider that! Has anyone checked that out? If yes, please leave a comment!
And with that, I’ll leave you now. Next week’s blog is going to be a great one, if I say so myself! No more spoilers for you, you will have to wait a week I am afraid!
Till next time,
