Creative Live 2!

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012|Elexu Live Events|by Sam Watson

As you walked down the stairs of the Verve Bar, the sounds of generic club music started to escape your ears and was replaced by the waves of original live music being played on an acoustic guitar or the chaotic flow of a rock band in full swing. All this alongside the undercurrent of jovial conversation of people meeting each other. This was Creative live 2 and it was awesome.

Creative Live 2 happened and like the first one, it was a success after a bit of messing around with the PA system…which cable where? Eventually we will master the PA systems mystical unknown. After about three hours of interns setting up the venue and using a lot of duct tape, the event was ready. At 6:00pm the doors opened to the public and over 75 people crammed into the Verve underground venue.

The Elexu staff set up an Elexu booth where you could find out all about Elexu, a stage where the acts performed, a film room, aspiration throne (see picture below), photographer walls and of course made sure everyone knew that it was half price drinks ’till 8:00pm. All these these things alongside the performers helped make Creative Live 2 a great night full of atmosphere.

We had a number of unique act ranging from the awesome music of The Stacks, to the soft hum of Eloise Rees or the dark words of Gul Davis. We like to say a massive thank you to the performers, you made the night what it was.
