London's Roundhouse was simply knackered from hosting the wild antics of The Stones, The Who, The Doors and all forms of naked performance art and avant-theater in the 1960's and 70's, so it decided to close and sleep in the early 80's. In 2006 it woke up and re-opened its doors. The Dresden Dolls held a conference and decided that yes, this would be the ideal place for a party. It was a scene to behold: the cafe was covered in prints that Nick shot during illegal urban explorations of squats in Berlin, there was a bunch of half-naked Australians lurking out in the freezing cold practicing an esoteric Japanese dance form, a makeshift gypsy band hidden under the concrete stairwell, an aerialist from Montreal hanging above a pair of drunken secretaries from L.A., a beat-boxing New Yorker looping himself infinitely, a pair of British buskers with mohawks beating wildly on household objects, a collection of puppeteered Barbie dolls lip-synching to "Ace of Spades", a roving confessional booth and a magnetic science experiment using My Little Ponies. Oh, and then The Dolls beat the living daylights out of a piano and a drum-set while everyone sang along. If you weren't there, it's a bloody shame. But through the magic of Modern Technology you can buy this DVD and pretend!
