For the electronic duo Ic3peak and their fans, even a half-finished show is like a victory
Six hours before they are due to play an underground concert at a secret location, Anastasia Kreslina and Nikolay Kostylev are stashed in an Airbnb in the southern Russian city of Krasnodar.
There’s good cause for the secrecy: as soon as the name of the venue is made public, there is a fair chance that police or local thugs could storm the club mid-set. This way, at least they will get to play a few songs before the event is shut down.
