We here at Sew What? Inc. / Rent What? Inc. absolutely love working with our concert tour production managers. Time and time again, we enjoy nothing more than seeing them be able to use our diverse, edgy, and completely ROCKING rental drapes on the road in genuinely unique and memorable ways. Earlier this year we were thrilled to be able to work again with magnificent lighting and stage designer Corey Moses, who was looking to get a fresh, dynamic look for some Spring tour shows for the American indie pop-rock group Eels (The Band).
They had previously used our rental Aluminum Metal Mesh drapes for some of their other shows, and they wanted a one-of-a-kind backdrop to hang behind the band again. Looking for a curtain that would be versatile to use, very easy to hang, light extraordinarily well, road-friendly, and of course give a completely iconic appearance to the stage design behind this truly iconic band, they decided to use our 23’h x 40’w Black Camo Chaos drape from our Industrial Textures rental drapery collection.
This exclusive, distinctive specialty drape consists of layers of swagged, rugged Camo-Netting over an IFR Black Poly Muslin base. This combination of substrates gives the drape a transcendent, textured quality that strikingly sets the stage for all types of special events. Theatrical lighting effects on this unique backdrop were beautifully orchestrated by Corey and his stage designers, which made quite an impact on the band’s fully enraptured audiences. You can see by these gorgeous photographs provided by band photographer Michael Raymond Smith that the curtain looked absolutely stunning on stage, and went perfectly with this band’s ultra-cool vibe.
Let our team of drapery specialists help you choose the most spot-on rental theatrical soft goods for your upcoming (big or small) stage or event production design, too!
