Adult Swim just one-upped the upfront game with an awesome party last night at Gotham Hall featuring M.I.A. Big thanks to Sam and Tony (and the combined effort of Patrick & Eric) for letting me go! Gotham Hall is like the Colosseum... ridiculous. High ceilings, large columns, a glass dome--in conjunction with the laser light show and projected animation on the walls--my eyes were tripping out by the beauty of it all. It was like a cooler version of Disneyland that served endless booze and cocktail shrimp. Gold bars of chocolate stacked on the bar, snarky napkins that say 'Show Your Love With Your Money' and a dress-up photo booth emphasized that Adult Swim is NOT like other networks. It's edgier, fun and appeals to a more 'interesting' demo (adults that don't want to grow up).
The night ended with a performance by M.I.A. As expected she rocked but the acoustics of the building did not. I couldn't hear her sing and the music echoed. Nevertheless, I danced like a crazy person and loved every second of it. Nights like these make the 10 hour days worth it.
