RiFF RAFF is many things: ACCLAIM cover star, polariser, lean advocate, enigma, social media problem user, inspiration for James Franco and occasional rapper. Unsurprisingly, the renaissance man drew an eclectic crowd, from seapunks to lads to conceptual fashion-school lads – all compressed into a sweaty moshpit. Like, seriously, the place was rammed. There was was barely room to swing a camera. There’s pretty much only one way that Codeine Bryant (he’s handy with aliases) could have whipped up more fervour: closing his set with a James-Franco-in-Spring–Breakers–channeling piano rendition of Britney Spears’ Everytime. Maybe next time.
