On Friday the 13th Black Market Goods hosted a private party for a local fetish club. As we are an art space dedicated to all forms of expression (so long as they are legal) we hosted this without hesitation. That night two Black Market Goods members stayed on site to watch the facilities and ensure that party was safe, legitimate, and legal. From the hours of 9pm-4am the party went on unhindered, even with the visitation of two of APD’s finest, in uniform! The two uniformed police officers entered the party just after midnight. They made contact with a BMG member, had a look around, made sure everybody was safe, saw nothing illegal or unsafe and left. If any illegal or unsafe activities were transpiring at the party I trust that the well trained officers of the Albuquerque Police Department would have acted immediately to curb the activity. Later, on Saturday February 14, Lloyd K. a city Taskforce Official visited Black Market Goods in his private vehicle, in plain clothes (with a badge on his belt covered by his un-tucked shirt) and accused us of hosting a rave, and then he questioned a BMG member about the activities of the night before. The BMG member that was questioned had not been present throughout the entirety of the event so that member gave Lloyd another BMG members' phone number. Lloyd then left a voicemail at that number. So the BMG member immediately contacted Lloyd K. leaving him voicemail saying "We don't know about any raves, we hosted a private party last night for fetish club but everything was legal." We left him two voicemails on Saturday February 14th and have yet to hear back from him. Yesterday I was contacted by Simon McCormack, of the Weekly Alibi he is doing a story on the event and the troubles the promoters have been having with the city.
