The Electric Salon was an attempt by Vostok Lake and Scarlett Lashes to build regularly-themed club nights involving electro-pop, burlesque, drag, comedy, and a woman-queer friendly environment. We liked to call it "The Muppets versus The Mighty Boosh in a steel cage". It was a hell of a lot of fun. We might start it again some day.
We had 90+ people through the door at the first instalment. We made a profit and were able to pay performers. This was unprecedented in Auckland indie music.
We even got papparazzi photos in the local gay newspaper, for heaven's sake!
