I have read numerous threads about people knocking venues. Avalon, when it opened... and now Crobar.
The scene was created on people being different and an energy being created from that difference... it's about the gay boys, the "freaks", the b and t suburban crowd, the old, the young.... all coming together to experience life and the music together.
I remember the limelight days..when everyone partied together, and that's why I fell in love with the "scene".
It was a magical place..where everyone left their day life behind them.. and let loose all together.
I remember those days.. meeting people with names like "smile" or "energy" etc.....people had identities in the clubs. Call them "clubkids"...call them spritutual.. call them fucked up, "freaks"...whatever.. but call them true believers and dreamers..artists of their own mind.
The venues don't make the scene..they provide a place for the scene to happen. We should ll be thankful to all those investors and dreamers who take risks to make this happen. They do it for us, the people.. hoping to achieve something greater; hoping to expand our minds..our hearts.
Don't knock the people that are different than you... you live in america where difference is what keeps us americans.. the club scene takes that difference to the next level... it's place of pur freedom. Act as you like, wear what you like..be who you like.
It's about finding the energy inside yourself. not in the venue....
find the energy within.. dance by yourself with you eyes closed like you were all alone... reach deeper .
Please open your minds... find the energy..the good energy and share it witht hose around you..
I could go on and on about how passion is the key..but it is a key to a door that you the people need to open.
Give Avalon, Spirit, Crobar.. a chance to please you..
give yourself a chance to please yourself...
I promise you.. you won't be dissappointed.
that is all. thanks for listening.
