Just when the logistics of organizing the Milonga @ Kiosque had become a routine, we were taught a lesson by the forces of Random Error and Elaborate Sabotaging. When we arrived, the gates were not open, so we had to carry everything by hand to the Kiosque, and when we had done that and tried to get the music going, we discovered that all options for electricity had been removed. So we had to scramble to find a battery and candles powered solution. This last edition can easily be called the most low-tech, tenebrious and romantic milonga of the summer.
DJ Mala and DJ Philippe, aided by a speaker with 4 AA batteries, made people dance to the light of a dozen candles big and small. Judging by the smiling faces, we didn’t do a bad job. But we might have some extra grey hairs since Saturday.
