What: Tiger Translate
Where: P7 floor, car park at Media One Hotel
When: Thursday January 24
A party in a car park. Itself a concept we don't see often (if we don't include the Festival City or Meydan concerts…). This was different: The Tiger Translate team confounded all expectations with their gritty warehouse-style club-night-meets-mini festival, hosted in the midst of Media One’s car park. Sure, it was backed by a hops brand, but with live digital graffiti, body art stalls and quirky photo booths there was a genuinely arty atmosphere in the air. Best of all was the music: supported by DUST’s strong regulars, headliner Pat Mahoney – otherwise known as the drummer from LCD Soundsystem – spun a fantastic set of eclectic beats. A follow up to a smaller event at Emirates Golf Course last year, this was a massive step up. Let’s hope they return with something even better next year.
