The world is ending, bitches. Are you aware of this? Are your bags packed? Are you ready to get dirty? No? Yes! Let’s get dirty like fucking bandits. Let’s steal into to one another and escape to the gorgeous scapes of Mexico to join our brethren in dance, to reach a level of nastiness worthy of celestial oblivion.
The Mayans, whom we bow down to in gratitude for the childbirth of astronomy and the cleaning of the rainforests have pronounced this year as the end of the “World Age” – that is a 25,625-year-long run and the fifth and final cycle of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. The apocalypse!
So what then? Huddle together like babes in the woods? Lean upon Bible verses like storm shelters? Call our mommies? No! Abscond to Playa del Carmen where sounds of divinity win echo from ear to ear and prevail upon us in a such way that even the demons of the great gates of hell feel hopeless.
Need we say more? Maybe a bit. Our alter egos on the music side, The Crosstown Rebels family, prefer to see Day Zero as a celebration of “a new beginning – the beginning of a new chapter.” The triumph will commence at 6pm on December 20th and end at 6:11 PM on December 21st, also know as the precise moment the cosmic shift is believed to take place. Jamie Jones, Art Department, Subb-an, Amirali, Infinity Ink, Fur Coat, Francesca Lombardo and our dear and much loved Damian Lazarus will be there to move you along with the Rebels’ friends such as Acid Pauli and Thugfucker, Trentmøller, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and others. “This is a phenomenal moment in time,” says Lazarus, “and there is no way we could let it pass without hosting an amazing and unforgettable celebration. It’s going to be a moment that our generation can latch on to that actually feels credible, poignant and special.” By special we mean a Mayan-made K-hole.
