So this is where all those jobless journalists go at night! Street artists Jason Eppink and Posterchild are throwing the print after-party, setting up abandoned newspaper boxes with disco balls, LED lights, handheld radios and cut-out silhouettes. As Eppink wrote, “When the last vestiges of a collapsed empire litter the landscape, there’s only one thing to do: throw a bumpin’ party and dance on the ruins.”

(Warning: loud music and flashing lights.)

Don’t forget our own recession-themed rave, next Thursday at the Supermarket in Kensington. And you’ll be able to squeeze into this one. We promise.
