It was a pleasure to have The Ironing Maidens use our laundromat as a venue for one of their electronic music gigs earlier this year. They brought much fun, energy and talent to our little corner of the world. Our bemused customers loved watching the crew set up for the concert and everyone worked their way around unobtrusively - it was like a dance. Even during the concert washers and dryers continued to be used in true ‘business as usual’ fashion despite the surreal surroundings. It was a wonderful experience for all of us to be in such a familiar place - yet a place that had been so mesmerizingly changed by the music, projected visuals, lights, audience and the performance happening within it. It was a treat to be able to offer The Ironing Maidens a platform from which they could entertain us - and importantly - to also help them play homage to the unsung 1950s women who were pioneers in electronic music.
