@ The Annex 9/20
Sprouting in northeast Minneapolis between the Red Stag Supper Club and City Salvage, the Annex is a semi-finished, semi-vacant space with a huge, metal and glass chandelier, a backlit Art Deco bar, a cement floor and an exposed wood ceiling. It's vintage flavor made it a perfect place for "Thunderball: An Evening of James Bond," the flagship party for MNfashion's Fall Fashion Weekend 2008 and a celebration of all things Bond through fashion, music and film.
Local bands Revolver, Bella Koshka, and Mercurial Rage performed new interpretations of iconic Bond tunes. Local fashion-forward collective, Eclecticoiffeur, styled models after Bond girls to match the Bond songs chosen by the bands.
Rounding out the artistic triumvirate, Digital Crush helped hand-craft 3 short films just for the event (shown at the link below). Each was inspired by a different Bond film intro sequence and was shot in August at Seventhsin Studios in Minneapolis. Check out page 4 at the link below for stills from the video shoot.
But bar close wasn't the end of the evening - the mod masses made more mayhem, marching up the nearby stairs to Tucker's swank pad. There, they had all the ingredients needed for a great time at 4 am: dudes with skateboards on a half-pipe, floods of red lighting, Tendercakes DJ's, buckets of cheap booze, and Robocop playing on a big screen. -Stephen Stephens
