This is the way the carnival ends: with a bang

Today’s anniversary party in Ximending will be the last monthly event staged by the coalition of artists behind the Campo Life Art Carnival

After three years of organizing free outdoor parties showcasing local DJs and artists, Campo Life Art Carnival (CAMPO生活藝術狂歡節) is going out with a bang today in Ximending (西門町). Organizers of the street fair/outdoor party have planned an afternoon and evening of film, music and the chance to meet local artisans and performers.

The 3rd annual anniversary party for Campo — Cinema Art Music People Originality — marks the closing of a chapter for the group. Organizers are postponing their monthly events after this weekend’s party because of lack of funding. They will, however, maintain their Web sites and they intend to continue to stage annual bashes and other “spontaneous” events.

Campo was formed as a local coalition of artists in 2005. Its members wanted people in Taiwan to turn off their televisions and get out of their houses to attend daytime parties. Founder Lin Hsin-yi (林欣儀) said in an interview on Monday that when she turned 27 she told herself, “You should start doing something you really like.” Monthly flea markets, featuring hand crafted and second-hand goods, with free performances by DJs, merged art and music and brought like-minded people together.

At the parties, DJs from Species Records — cofounders of the event — and other scheduled turntablists would play, but the decks would be open: anyone who wanted to spin could have a turn.

This afternoon’s party with live bands and DJs in Ximending Cinema Park (西門町電影公園) is free and is followed by an evening of dancing at Paris Night Club. Performances include music by Taimaica Soundsystem (台買加環繞音效), which will be playing a second set later, Monkey Pilot (猴子飛行員), and electronica doyen Lim Giong (林強).

“Simple Is Beauty,” a show Lim started in 2007, “is mainly put together with Hou Hsiao-hsien’s (侯孝賢) classic film clips and Lim’s live music,” said Lin. “By rearrang[ing] and remixing both the video clips and the music, Lim is going to give you another take on the films.”

There will also be a game show-type contest. Starting at 3:45pm, 10 contestants will undergo makeovers with the help of independent clothing designers and stylists and will compete for the title of the Superstar of Cinema Square.

A Campo documentary (短片放映), and the short film Chicken Soup (雞湯) by director Chung Wai Kit (鍾偉杰) will show from 8pm to 8:30pm. The documentary is a work in progress, as footage from today’s event will be added later.

Chicken Soup is about a young man contemplating, through flashbacks and flashforwards, whether he lived his life the way he wanted to. Lin said the film deals with “remembering the valuable things in life.” Originally, Campo was hired by XXX-TV to make the film. Lin said that despite “contracts being signed and script approved,” XXX-TV later decided during shooting that it wanted to “change certain details about the script to make it more dramatic — making the chicken soup have some sort of magical healing powers.” Lin said they refused to “change a good script into some melodramatic soap opera,” so XXX-TV pulled funding, “making up some excuse [that] ‘the script will never pass the board.’”

Lin said she and other Campo members “decided to pay out of our own pockets to finish the film and hope that showing the film will help [attract] attention to this issue.”

DVDs of the short will be sold during the screening.

New Hong Kong Hair City is scheduled to kick off the evening’s entertainment at the nearby Paris nightclub at 8:30pm. The schedule is ambitious: live bands and DJs alternate until 1am, with DJs spinning 20 minute sets and bands playing for 40 minutes each. Acts include DJs Keith, Hsin, Kay, and Poverty, with live bands Public Radio and Johnny Fatstacks, which will be screening its new video. The live bands stop at 1am, after which DJs BB (我的生活), Coffeepot and Arthur (阿舌) will do their thing until 3am. The dress code is vintage: expect to see hip artsy types decked out in original fashions.

操場 the Fucking Place

「今天晚上要去操場嗎?(You wanna go to the Fucking Place , tonight?)」,「 什麼?(What?)」是大家一致的反應,到底是什麼樣的地方,直接的店名,大部分朋友一聽到這家店名會連想學生時代的操場,外國人聽到常常一副不敢相信的誇張表情,以為是什麼特別有關fxxking的祕密地方, 這是一家座落於和平東路二段的酒吧,藏身在一棟舊房子的二樓,“操場“的招牌混雜在一排高高低低的壓克力燈箱裡,每天晚上當路上的店家紛紛準備打烊,這時,“操場“才正要開始亮起。
操場,就是原來的墳場,1995年剛開時店名為「後現代墳場」,有一年因為颱風的關係把“後現代“三個字吹掉,這個地方就變成墳場,出入一些電影人,音樂人,還有一些搞文化的,寫小說的等等,1999年阿舌(早期MTV台製作人)將店頂下後由一群愛好音樂的朋友共同經營,幾番轉手,酒客變成老闆,2005年整修後改名為「操場 the Fucking Place」,現在的老闆群有阿舌、小豐(電影製作人)、張震(演員)及張震嶽(歌星)等,
簡單暗色系沙發,昏黃發亮的吧台酒櫃, 這裡沒有特定的形, 木頭的屋頂洩漏出建築的年齡,10幾年了, 人及音樂讓操場面貌變化多端, 經歷四千多個日子,不知孕育出多少愛恨情愁及故事? 上萬首歌曲曾經在這裡播放過,每首歌背都可能有一個屬於你我的故事,專業吧台替每個夜晚調製不同的氣氛,操場的魅力就在於每一刻都單獨存在,無法預知接下來的夜晚會蹦出什麼故事。
