Postcard From Underground Amsterdam

By Der Kosmonaut,

  I made an appearance at ADM Festival, the largest and possibly soon to be last underground cultural and social community in The Netherlands.

A wooden and metal sculpture of a pelican atop an old boat where records were sold and played. As a result of too much enthusiasm I attempted to do a Hip-Hop Industrial DJ set but was told it was impossible.

I wouldn't begrudge any older New Yorkers that would doubt that this was actually taken in Amsterdam or October 2017. It does look quite similar to Coney Island Astroland circa 1980. However upon closer examination of the revelers, one hardly sees any Black or Puerto Rican faces.

Too bad that I didn't get to play an Industrial DJ set. "Lightening Man" by Nitzer Ebb would've certainly fit the mood and scene.
All photos were taken by Der Kosmonaut on his not-so-smartphone at ADM on 13 October 2017.
