A fascinating tale about Simon Drake, England’s ‘bad boy of magic,’ and his new venue is unveiled in the Jun. 7 issue of This Is London. “The first public party, last month, was a strange, 50-50 split between media sweeties and hard-core fake-blood-thirsty goths. A few of the laydeez approached him afterwards to ask whether he was really into bondage, or whether it was just part of the act.” “It’s a lark, though – a ton better than stand-up comedy, frankly, and, Drake’s manic overuse of a smoke machine notwithstanding, nothing like as tacky as a themed night might sound.” To read Zoe Williams’ article click: HERE.(6/13)
