  1. PVD at Spirit. WOW

    I was really looking forward to the INDOOR set, since I was so freezing from the Central Park event....gotta say it was one of those surreal times, though. But, I was VERY disappointed in Spirit.....talk about a sellout venue. I don't mind being crowded, but when there is NO chill space reserved for the average person, the vibe goes WAY downhill. Plenty of couches, and mezzanine to boot, but ALL for V.I.P......three different bouncers turned me away from ANYWHERE I could simply sit down, saying you had to pay more to access those areas. I like to both dance and then sit and take everything in, but that's mighty tough to do when sitting on a crowded floor in the hallway. Gimme Roxy, Sound Factory (RIP), or Exit any day over Spirit. Music was good, but atmosphere totally wrecked by lack of sit space. NY club scene will always be better than Boston, but at least here in Boston I can take a break and sit on something not laminated.
  2. first time in boston

    My personal favorites for clubs: Avalon, Axis, Roxy, Envy. Depends on what kind of music you like. If you prefer the bar scene, I'd suggest: Bell in Hand, Copperfields (right outside Fenway), McCarthy's (Faneuil Hall), and the Red Hat. ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  3. PVD

    I hope everyone picks up their Paul Van Dyk tickets soon....Next says they're going pretty fast! Twenty bucks isn't too bad to see one of the best DJ's in the world....make sure you're there! I know I will be... ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  4. New Avalon resident....

    For anyone that went to Avalon on Sat. night, what'd you think of the new resident, DJ Richard? While I know I have a strong bias towards Manny, I thought he was pretty good.... Word on the street says he just came from a residency in London and is a solid mix of trance and techno. So far, thumbs up! ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  5. Anyone got a JP review???

    Thankfully, JP was really good Friday night. Personally, I don't really get into heavy House too much, which is what Nailz mostly plays.....so JP was a refreshing increase in tempo. The crowd was good, the energy was there, and overall the night went very well..... ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  6. AVALAND -DJ NAILZ AND JONATHAN PETERS TONIGHT!

    I'll definitely be there!! Hope to see everyone.... ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  7. Meet Up Fiday Avalon???

    I'm gonna be there with a couple people...if you wanna meet up, just let me know! ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon [This message has been edited by raginboston (edited 06-29-2001).]
  8. Work Still Sucks!!!!!!!!

    Yeah, mostly because I'm hungover though. My work sux stories would put an ADHD kid to sleep.....too much politics, not enough do-gooders. ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  9. Work Sucks!!!!

    I have to respectfully disagree with nycchic in that I think people don't arrive at a venue all jazzed up....the DJ stirs them into a frenzy, and not the other way around. One of my favorite DJ's ever is DJ Taucher, both because of his talent and because he puts on a great set, regardless of the lame members of the crowd. As a result, those of us who are there to enjoy the music and the energy give whatever we have back.....that relationship between DJ and listener, even in adverse conditions, is still amazing to watch. ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  10. Friday Night

    Yeah, I'll be there.....anyone want to meet up? ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  11. PVD at Avalon

    I can't believe Manny is really gonna leave. That is a real tragedy.....I'm not sure how many people knew that Manny was behind most of the big acts coming to Avalon. I've heard plenty of stories about the management and staff at Avalon as well, but no mud-slinging is necessary. In my humble opinion, they've focused a great deal of effort on appearance and decibal level, but not on guaranteeing the highest quality of music possible....as shown by their disregard for Manny's talent, skill, and devotion. I see Manny as providing a much-needed nucleus for the Boston trance/house/techno scene...through the store and through his personal music. I can't speak for anyone else, but after talkin' with Manny a few times, I know the venue has never mattered as much as the music. I'll go where he goes....because quite frankly, the music is really what matters most. ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon [This message has been edited by raginboston (edited 06-28-2001).]
  12. Work Sucks!!!!

    Damn...now I'm torn about going to JP. There's nothing more annoying than a moody DJ. I've never heard of a DJ actually trying to get people to leave! The first time I saw him a couple of years ago, he was great...then I heard this most recent appearance he was awful. I have no desire to peer into his soul....I just want him to give energy BACK to the crowd. ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  13. Work Sucks!!!!

    Thanks for the heads up, nycchic.... I'm pretty sure I'll be going to Jonathan Peters, along with Ichiroboston and a couple of friends. I heard last time he was in Boston it kinda sucked...any thoughts? ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  14. Work Sucks!!!!

    I work at the State House, for a State Senator (who shall remain nameless!)...never a dull moment here, that's for sure. Not many club people, unfortunately. Lotta drinkers/ bar hacks. Don't get me wrong, that's a good time, too...just not enough people here into the club scene. Anyone going to Jonathan Peters Friday night? ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
  15. Avalon Saturday Meet?

    I think I'd be up for that.... ------------------ I am like a mosquito in a nudist colony; I know what I must do, but not where to begin. -Francis Bacon
