Voodoo Ball

Written by McNulty Mark

After an afternoon of absolute happiness at the Liverpool Disco festival, I plunged myself into complete darkness by joining a Zombie Halloween parade before heading down to the mind blowing Voodoo Ball at the Invisible Wind Factory.  The parade started at the top of Bold Street before slowly winding it’s way down to Mathew Street which, on a Saturday night, is sort of like walking from heaven to hell and having zombies as company seemed to make so much sense. It was a great parade and the effort that everybody made from the performers to the tourists and doormen, we met along the way, was fantastic.  Hosted by Rebel Soul and Katumba the drums were relentless and the finale on Mathew Street was insane. Then it was on to the Invisible Wind Factory for my first ever, though much heard about, Voodoo Ball and everything just got better and better.  Not sure the best way to describe it to be fair but a performance art/theatre/dance off at a mutant disco backed by an African and Voodoo rhythms soundtrack makes for some sort of introduction. The night takes on the theme of an ongoing battle between the Lords and the Punks with a big Katumba soundtracked final fight scene on the dancefloor. Add to this some ace DJs, live music by Rimka and Electric Jalaba, the nightime glow in the dark version of Tristan Brady-Jacobs Hobo Bazaar and, of course, the Invisible Wind Factory and you’ve got one the best and most original Halloween party’s ever.  Take a look for yourself….
