At this party the art was good.
Usual times, club and venue design are bad, convenient and fanatical,
masquerading as chic.  Now true art counts most.  The music, the look.
The old hip did need replacement.

Found here too at this party, a crowd distilled into art and pleasure.

A debt owed most to rave culture whose naive vistas have experienced
an intelligent rework with parties like this one.

Trite, Pretend Pop is over.
Unapologetic art spectacles are at the
core of culture as sport and news have become.  
Mass Art it is.  A fresh movement for the century swing around.
