    I reckon it'd be a really stessful job....i dont know any venue owners/managers, but ive known a few pub landlords, and that sounds bad enough

    I always got the impression it was difficult to get going, but if it gains popularity then its fairly plain sailing.

    Got to Bar 512 last night - excellent little spot - unpretentious venue, nice door and bar staff, and a really good well up for it crowd, especially considering its in Dalston ;)
    The sound was alright, but i think the Launch crew brought in their own...a tiny bit more bass wouldn't have gone amiss.
    Ever so slightly too many people in there, but Ive had worse...
    :thumbs: thumbs up

    Went to the Garage in Highbury... Never experienced such a sticky dance floor in all my days... Maybe its just a rock thing!

    On another note a couple of times I've seen people queuing up into an anonymous door under a bridge to the south side of Blackfriars bridge... Next to what I think used to be the Ft building... It looked like it must be some kind of arches under a railway line thing.... Anyone know more?

    Had exactly the same experience in there on Friday when I saw Bob Andy. We thought it was our shoes specifically - my Clarks Wallabees and my mate's Clarks desert boots. Like glue.

    Hah jokers...i wonder when they last cleaned it... We ordered water and ice to try and clear our little dance patch but it made surprisingly little difference :D

    New "16 acre" venue coming to Canada Water (south london)
    :hmm:
    Printworks
    London’s huge new venue Printworks announces Nina Kraviz, Daphni, Dopplereffekt and more for 2017

    What kind of music are all the djs mentioned? Are they going for a berlin-thing?

    ETA:

    "Picture a massive industrial warehouse set across an amazing site in London's Docklands, with a full day of the scene's biggest names providing the soundtrack. The event will take place in The Press Halls space at Printworks London. Housing the giant printing presses that once churned out the Metro and Evening Standard newspapers, the Press Halls are a fully soundproofed space, so expect proper sound levels.

    Promising fully bespoke production, LWE and Broadwick Live will make the most of the Press Hall's rare potential, adding fully-fitted L'Acoustic and SB28 loudspeakers in the main room, designing an automated lighting truss that makes the most of the vast heights and installing over 100 lasers and spotlights to illuminate the dramatic industrial features. Room 2’s sound will be provided by Void. "

    I spent midnight NYE there b4 going onto a warehouse party. Great vibe and varied music although we were only in the bar. Good beer. It was free and thankfully no security. It was a piece of joyous London rarely found now.

    I've seen Sly and the family drone there previously in the 'gig' part and various other gigs. Always more than you get at most other venues.

    only 100 lasers in 16 acres tho, that is probably less than the average for a town centre.

    Any lasers just spells disco trouble. Mad for it glow stick pills and trainers.

    Sometimes I like to go sightseeing on Google Maps....'drive' down a little country road, or check out places I'll probably never visit. Yesterday was poking around mid western USA and found this ampitheatre in Denver called Red Rocks. Beautiful setting, flanked on either side by those slanted red rocks. They have some good bands booked in there too.
    I wonder what the sound is like?
