Radioactive Results: Good Time even if no Jason Bentley

April 12, 2009

eliza-richardson-radioactive-09sm2While the music was fun, the DJs talented, the upscale and celebrity attendees dressed predominantly in black, and the place was packed, as fas as I’m concerned the biggest star of last night’s KCRW Radioactive event was the location: The Park View Hotel.

Located near MacArthur Park in downtown LA, unfortunately the largest ballroom was too small to acommodate the legions who wanted to see Jason Bentley followed by Raul Campos. We did get in to see the previous outrageaously textured set by Eliza Richardson (pictured) which left us wanting to get out more!

The building is scrumptiously ornate, and wherever you gazed while you danced you were rewarded with amazingly intricate designs. Every element was startinimages-1g in its detail. This photo of a door leading from the outdoor patio in to one of the three ballrooms was the best I could find; it’s from

The Park View offered revelers five spaces to party and dance, each with at least one bar (from which someone was pocketing a lot of money–and I hope KCRW gets a cut of those $8 Stellas we enjoyed.)

(Someone whispered, “hey, who was that?” and he was filled in with some Black Flag and other tidbits. True to form, Rollins started off his set with a sonic blast of sound, which combined with the cigarette smoke snt us off to visit Eliza Richardson for awhile and return for the close of the set. Eric J Lawrence followed Rollins with a track from Cheap Trick. He then did some really fun, danceable mash-ups. (Will have to fix that orientation here soonest–sorry!)radioactiveupsmall1

We danced the most to Jeremy Soul who mixed a global sound with live musicians on horns and guitar. We also enjoyed James Yuill, Mario Cotto, and more. With a long drive and babysitters to get back to, the four of us headed out at 1230pm, ready to be RADIOACTIVE again!
