Last week Quiet Lunch stopped by Angel Orensanz Foundation, Inc. for the premier of Burton‘s movie 13 but on top of seeing one of the sickest skate films ever, we were also anticipating performances by Wu patriarch, the RZA, and Brooknam newcomers, Flatbush Zombies. We strolled up to the venue and was automatically taken aback by the line that seemed to wrap halfway around the earth. Lucky for us, we were in good company and avoided growing a beard during the dreaded wait. The scene was almost too surreal to describe but we’ll try…
The soiree looked to be drenched in blood. The re-appropriated church was awash in a hemoglobin hue and its patrons moved like a busy sea. We dived right in, partaking in the endless flow of libations and mingling with rabid partygoers. Shifting from raucous bunch to raucous bunch, our heads were spinning with firewater and hi-fives. Despite the whirlwind, we managed to run into a few familiar faces.
We made our way to the green room and immediately spotted our good friend Mike Dean. After chopping it up with him for a while, the room quickly became occupied with likes of the RZA and Flatbush Zombies. After cracking opening a fresh bottle of Patrón, the Abbott went into his mode. Mesmerizing not only the crowd but our humble cameras, Prince Rakim offered an exhilarating performance and even took some time out to speak about his upcoming film, The Man with the Iron Fists.
Indeed it was shaping up to be an epic end to a spectacular summer. But all is not over and done with! Stay for the second half of our night which features the terrible trio, Flatbush Zombies.
