Gilles Peterson // Photoset

March 13th | Thekla

Dancing below decks at Thekla was the only way to end another unprecedentedly odd week of the Great British Shutdown. When words such as ‘isolation’ and ‘distance’ were being bandied as good things, contrary to their pre-Covid-19 associations, it was a blessing to remember just what a sense of being utterly lost in one’s own sonic world a damn good DJ set could create. And for such a thing, you need a damn good DJ and Fiesta Bombarda served one up in the shape of Gilles Peterson.
