We’re ringing in the brand new Lomography Gallery Store Santa Monica in style this Thursday – Eastern European style to be exact! Besides all of the incredible local champagne and wine, we’ll be treating the crowd to Russian beer and rocking out to the tunes of the one and only Petrojvic Blasting Company! If you don’t know about their raucous style already, check ’em out below!
Straight from the encroaching mountains of Serbia (or was it Tennessee?), we bring you the Petrojvic Blasting Company!
“Based on the size of Thursday’s crowd, it’s easy to see why the Blasting Company likes it out on the street. The audience was so enthusiastic that when the cops rolled up and shut things down over concerns for public safety, the entire block booed. There were similarly passionate cheers when the police came back a bit later to invite the band back to 4th Street after shutting down the entire block for general Art Walk crowd control. “Most people playing don’t attract that kind of a crowd, but they were an absolutely amazing band,” said LAPD Sgt. Kris Werner, who was on duty that night. “It’s probably my first time coming across street musicians who were so popular.”
