Radio OK Fred at Celine Omotesando #2


Following the very fun first performance of Radio OK Fred at Celine Omotesando this past Wednesday, we’re getting ready for a second session tonight (November 2, 18:00-20:00). Tonight we’re having a bit of fun with the idea of “Creativity Now,” with special guest W. David Marx (Marxy) giving a lecture. The show will then include some special guest DJs: Marie from Colette, PMKFA, and Digiki. Expect all the wackiness of the other night’s edition, again, with free drinks and a fun atmosphere. It seems like we’re so in demand that we’ll probably be doing it again tomorrow night as well — if that happens I’ll post details again tomorrow.

If you couldn’t make it to the last one, part of it is online here. Here’s a little blurb I wrote for it:

RADIO OK FRED returns with live sessions recorded in the middle of the Item Idem installation at Celine Omotesando, part of this year’s edition of DesignTide. First up, a Halloween special (recorded October 31) with a few performances, mixed in with some “haunted” tracks, and the OK FREDDERS offering interesting takes on the news. (Technical difficulties cut the first 30 minutes or so of the show.)

I had prepared 16 Halloween-themed tracks (in title mostly) for the show, but only got to play the following four:

  • Manfred Hubler & Siegfried Schwab – “The Lions and the Cucumber” (from VAMPYROS LESBOS: SEXADELIC DANCE PARTY)
  • K.I.M. – “Death of an Oakim” (from MIYAGE)
  • The Grusesomes – “Stop It, Girl” (from CAVE-IN!)
  • Charlotte Gainsbourg – “Little Monsters” (from 5:55)
