U Vintage Industrial Bar smo tu večer prvi puta zalutali. Kažem zalutali jer nismo uopće očekivali što će nas tamo dočekati.

Iznenađenje totalno, radi se pregenijalnom klubu, na više razina! To je noviji klub i ovo što se činila kao klasična rockabilly večer na kakve često idemo ispostavilo se najvećom gužvom koju sam vidjela…. pa zapravo ne sjećam se kada. Ali sigurno ne na rockabilly eventu.

Klub je bio dupkom pun (a ogroman je), prepun najrazličitih ljudi i supkultura. Bikeri, metalci, punkeri, skinsi, hipsteri, rokabilići i sajkobilići, neke nove pin up djevojke i oni koji su očito taj dan prvi put isprobali stil, selebritiji, šminkeri, hipsteri i sasvim obični ljudi, maškare iz Samobora, godina od 14 do 70 … svi su se zajedno drmusali ozarenih lica u ritmu 50’s glazbe i stvarali nevjerojatnu gužvu na najljepšem šanku koji sam do tada vidjela. Fantastična atmosfera! Šank je gigantski, stvarno, ali svejedno je bilo jako teško dogurati se do njega i naručiti pivo. Konobarice su bile sređene u stilu eventa, s pin up šminkom i odjećom.

Sam bar je predobro uređen, od rockabilly grafita na zidovima do kul spray painta na vratima WC-a, cijele prostorne konstrukcije koja se dijeli u par cjelina… svaka sa svojom namijenom, stilom i atmosferom. Velika garderoba, ogroman i prekrasan stage, industrijski đir prostora s metalnim stupovima, ciglenim zidovima itd. Vidjeli smo puno poznatih te večeri, pogotovo ekipu s rocka/psychobilly scene i svi redom su bili oduševljeni. Rečenica koja se konstantno ponavljala je “Kao da smo negdje vani” (op.a. van Hrvatske) i “Tko su svi ti ljudi!”.

Moram pohvaliti DJ-a te večeri, izbor pjesama je bio više nego savršen (i više od toga!) tako da sam većinu vremena cupkala na glazbu, a i bendovi su napravili stvarno preodličnu atmosferu.

Ekipu je prvo zagrijao domaći B & the Bops, izrazito poznat i aktivan bend na našoj sceni. Uobičajeno dobrim i energičnim nastupom rasplesali su publiku. Kontrabasist Marko je kao inače izvodio ludosti s kontrabasom.

Nakon njih nastupali su Lucky Marcell and the Ramblin’ Three i bili su prepredobri! Plesala sam bez prestanka do izlaska iz kluba, pa malo do doma da bi otplesala u krevet i drugi dan se probudila s muskulfiberom. Odlična večer!

We strayed in to Vintage Industrial Bar that night for the first time. I’m saying “strayed” because we didn’t have a clue what will wait for us there.

Complete surprise, it is the most ingenious club, on more than one level! It is a new club and what seemed like a classic rockabilly night, which we often attend, turned out to be the biggest jam I’ve seen… well I can’t remember when. But certainly not on rockabilly event.

Club was completely packed (and it is huge), full of different people and subcultures. Bikers, punks, skins, rockabilly’s, psychobilly’s, some new pin up girls and people who clearly dressed in the style that very day, celebrities, fancy people, hipsters, completely ordinary people, masquerade people that came from the town Samobor, years 14 to 70… were all together shaking with smiling faces in the rhythm of 50’s music and making incredible rush on the most beautiful bar counter I’ve ever seen. Fantastic atmosphere! Counter was huge, really, but it was still difficult to push your way to it and order a beer. Waitresses were dressed up in the style of the event, with pin up make up and clothing.

The bar itself is very well designed, from rockabilly graffiti on the wall to cool spray painting on the doors of the bathroom, whole space arrangement that divides into few complexes… each with their own purpuse, style and atmosphere. Big wardrobe, huge and gorgeous stage, industrial style of the area with metal columns and brick walls etc. We’ve seen many familiar people that evening, especially local rocka/psychobilly crew and they were all thrilled. Sentence that kept repeating was “It’s like we’re somewhere abroad” and “Who are all these people!”.

Kudos to the DJ of the evening, song choice was more than perfect (and more than that!) so I’ve spent most of the time hopping on music, and the bands did a truly wonderful atmosphere.

First the local band B & the Bops warmed up the audience, they are very well known and active bend on our scene. With their commonly good and energetic performance they brought the audience to the dance floor . Double bass player Marko did his usual stunts with his bass.

After them it was time for the band Lucky Marcell and the Ramblin’ Three and they were fabulous! I danced without stopping till leaving the club, than a little more returning home and than I danced my way to the bed to wake up in the morning with sore muscles. Great evening!
