The unimposing space at Vermillion on 11th and Pike is frequently a choice destination for Seattle Peach and crew when we want to unwind. Within the last year, the art gallery/cocktail lounge has been at the top of its game when it comes to playing host to artsy events. L O V E T O N E, a monthly dance party showcasing top-notch visual projections, leads the pack as far as unconventional carousing is concerned. The psychedelic surroundings created by massive projections coupled with complementary DJ sets is one of the best monthlies in town. The dark and intimate back bar area lends itself to deep talking and the towering corridors guide party-goers gracefully through the space.
Seattle Peach asked L O V E T O N E promoter, Ozma Ocatova, his philosophy when approaching the event:
“Lovetone started in December 2010. It is the physical manifestation of a mental experiment. The general idea is to bring Seattle an event that rearranges the elements of several specific cultures and creates an environment that takes people to an unfamiliar feeling. Hopefully it induces some reflection. You never have the same psychedelic experience twice, and there are always lessons to be learned.”
L O V E T O N E will celebrate this month with a free Halloween party slated for Saturday night. Residents Jon Francois, Christian Science, David James and, of course, Ozma, will be on hand and the Slowdust collective will be making a very special guest appearance.
