A glimpse of heaven

The New York club scene is only a vague reminicent of greater days. My first impression of Cielo was corporate clubbing. Cautious people and A/C. Yesterday I gave Cielo another chance and went to Little Louie Vega Roots Night. The place and the people were pretty much the same - but the first hour a handful people danced so creatively it was like a performance. Past midnight the crowd got dancing and the music was funky ambient roots house. At 1 am the Video Music Box founder Ralph McDaniels was playing 80ies hard mixed music. And after not too long the floor was filled with breakdancers. Amazing. Cielo Wednesdays.

The best night is by far the "deep space" night with francois k. I was there almost every monday. The atmosphere is totally different than the other days. Have you ever been there? Greetings from San Marino... Nicolas
