To the untrained eye, getting “Shpongled” may appear the same as any other night of transient electronic sounds accompanied with aerial dancers, live painters, and earthy vendors. The truth is, however, that until one has experienced that which is Simon Posford and Raja Ram, there is no understanding it. With a line streaming from the door out onto the street of Clarkson on Friday, it was easy to see that something very interesting was happening inside.
Shpongle hit the stage around 11:00 PM, but before and during the mind-blowing set, Alex and Allyson Grey could be seen painting live, which to some is honestly a spectacular treat all in its own. For those who are not fans of the spiritual art world, Alex and Allyson Grey are famed art creators known for their stunning visionary art. The two have a reputation for their performance art, and Friday proved to be no exception to the amazing conceptual interpretations of flexible realities. While the two were the “headlining” painters, the night itself actually included several other painters and art collectives.
