The Space Lady - Major Tom

"I take it from your response to that that you grok psychedelic music," said Susan Dietrich — known professionally as The Space Lady — as a packed-in crowd roared at the conclusion of this set's first song. This special appearance was the capper to a weekend-long set of shows to celebrate a half-decade of DIY culture creation at this Kensington space. It's easy to make fun of the hippie values of peace and love, but as she cranked out tunes on her phased-out Casiotone MT-40, even the most jaded heart was won over by Dietrich's joyful presence and, even for an just one hour, all cynicism was suspended.
