    8115 sitting down is bad for you

    I was not over impressed with the venue. It has a funny layout.

    Ah that's a shame. Does it get very busy - that's really my main gripe with venues recently?

    yeah i think so. currently they're in camberwell. it's pretty banging though, definitely not on the disco end.

    It didn't feel busy enough actually. But I think it was full. Maybe it wasn't and it would be better if it was.

    The flow around the venue wasn't right.

    pity, it seems to get all the big names at the minute. is the sound good? also that night on the 22nd is a good example of putting far too many big names on the list.

    i stopped going to corsica studios as they rammed it so full of people that it was too unpleasant to be there unless you were too fucked to notice.

    a gay bar on southampton way. The only time i've been in there is for a residents' association meeting (!) so I can't say what the room downstairs is like, but i hear it has a shower.

    I thought the sound was ok.

    I have not been out much for a long time though so I don't have much to compare it to.

    I would recommend the Plex night all the same.

    Yeah it is a proper S&M dungeon with thrones and chains and shit. Recommended. But not purely techno.

    checked the PLex thing - even recognised some names on the flyer (bintus and j tijn) but its next to sold out so rammed and last tickets are 18£.
    (i found it) Funny exchange on their facebook:

    Sousi Aires
    Fuck Corsica Studios!! It's enough! This is not the only club... Use your imagination people...

    it certainly isn't the only club Sousi Aires but we love the place & the people who run it as do many..no need to be so offensive either

    I know the venue. It's big, beer is stupidly priced, sound is good, needs more toilets. Has a smoking terrace but to get to it means a scrum through a bottleneck and up some dodgey metal stairs/fire escape.

    Don't like it much any more and my job doesn't suit the lifestyle. All my rave buddies are having children or retiring for other reasons, as well.

    I can relate to that. I won't say never again yet but it's heading that way for me I think.

    And the kitchen
