Makes sense doesn't it? http://www.timeout.com/london/clubs/coffin-dodgers-disco-lets-get-ready-to-grumble
much better than some humourless club night.
someone throws the ball into the box, Terry Butcher heads it on, Bryan Robson slides it in. 37 seconds. quickest WC goal ever?
and all teh songs were going to be played at half speed, and the strobes woudl be going really really slow, and the there would be a clcok on teh wall going at half speed as well
never did it obviously
is it a club you go to at night? because to me, that is just a club
a club night is the event that happens at clubs like Skool Disko on Wednesdays, Ladies Nights on Fridays.
too noisy for me, man. or the wrong sort of noise, anyway.
30 sounds a resonable age to stop going clubbing
truth is, even at 18 this wasn't my bag. see also all day drinking.
are over 28 anyway. It just depends what music you play really.
sorry to disappoint
Coffin Dodgers Disco...I mean really?
older older 28s
I suppose it might lower the demographic of their usual nights though.
Feeling Gloomy's a good night if all you want to do is get hooned and dance to familiar gloomy indie music. It's a reassuringly consistent experience.
All the stuff that goes with it, however, can do one.
It served a purpose whenever I did go.
Mainstream indie nights were surprisingly thin on the ground back in them days in London on a Saturday night. It did a job. Doubt I'd go back now though.
is run by the worst people that have ever lived. and it's also very very shit.
I have it first hand that they are both very odd people.
has exactly the same playlist as every other indie night
Sounds to me like it might go on quite late and be too noisy
Problem with this though is that it goes on til 2.30am. I'd be well up for a clubnight aimed at the mumsnet/dadsnet contingent on DiS, with an earlier start/finish time than normal. Basically like a wedding reception except with better music.
Designed to finish before the last train home
i can imagine doing that on a Friday night and it working pretty well.
presumably not what they are referring to with the superman dance?
at about 4.30/5pm and be at home by 10 or 11 with a horror film on and a pint of lime squash.
please make gigs/club nights happen that do this. if they were to provide a miniature of said squash on departure all the better.
and that don't involve the savages who created feeling gloomy and club de fromage.
make it, like, 7-midnight or something. time for a few post-work looseners and then on somewhere to dance. finishes in time for the last train home.
that what i'm wanting could be descirbed as 'commuter raving' but then i am a picky bastard. great to see so much hate for feeling gloomy on here. i'll never understand why people think that pair of tossers are doing anything more than taking the piss out of punters, mopping up the cash and laughing at them a bit more on the way home.
that they're doing wrong exactly? Not a dig - don't think I've been - just interested.
but anyway, this: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4437286#r7747029
(i've not been either)
answered everywhere else.
definitely improve the night for everyone around them
yeah, i'd rather remove my own kidneys without anaesthetic
i'm 28. if i go out, i go to places where there are people younger and older than me. i don't need to indulge in this generational smugness that will eventually manifest itself in things-were-better-in-my-day living in Surrey, driving a 4x4 and voting fucking tory. good day.
but I did recently go, as an adult 30 year old human man, to a club night mostly populated by people in the 18-21 age bracket. I felt like Creepy Uncle Monpot and I did not like it one bit.
and the handful of creepy 30something guys who you'd see lurking on the edge of the dancefloor. Eurgh.
who the promoters would be before i clicked the link. well done, me.
deal with it.
While we're at it, can I just say how much I hate the Lexington? Proper much.
at least for live music, it's one of the few places in London that (to me) doesn't feel like an absolute shit tip
but it's a GREAT music venue.
the staff are completely unhelpful to actively obnxious
the punters are old, grimy, aggressive and unattractive
the drinks are hellaciously expensive and the only special, every time I've been there, has been apple sourz.
TBF I've never been to a gig there (probs?), but the last time folks decided to go dancing there I just went home. Massively stand by that decision.
seen loads of brilliant gigs though.
Oh, I have had it, I have had it with this school, Skinner! The low test scores, class after class of ugly, ugly children!
I don't think I've ever paid less than a fiver.
More expensive for snobs.
'massively, massively handsy dancefloor' to that one too
Such a shame by Feeling Gloomy they meant Generic Britpop Night
01:01am: Someone requests Get Lucky and it turns into every other club night
It just sounds dull and pointless. If you don't like throwing up a brown soup of cheap shots at Tiger Tiger or whatever it's not due to your age, it's just not for you.
& idk when I was 28, and now, I have a bunch of pals in their mid-20s who would get excluded from this needlessly.
what is it that makes this Feeling Gloomy night so shit?
run by a couple of guys who pretty obviously don't really care for the music or the punters, and who have a very repetitive playlist.
playlist looks derivate; promoters look like a shit* Flight of the Conchords
*shitter, if you are not into FotC
Because they would chat shit on microphones while swapping CDs
It's like a DJ giving 'shout-outs'.
the way it's marketed condescendingly mocks those that might have an interest in going to a club of that sort ie pics of the twats that run it weeping and pretending to be 'emotional'.
then how, as mentioned above it just turns into a generic club night once they've decided everyone's pissed enough to stop playing the music they came to hear. rather like a metal night stopping playing metal once the punters were hammered. that would go well, eh?
it's expensive, when it gets packed it can get a bit aggro, the whole event is built around the vanity of the organisers who imagine themselves to be comedians.
plus a couple of really personal things that i won't list cos it'll detract from these perfectly legit reasons!
Happy Mondays, stone roses, flowered up, soup dragons, all that lot
i'll call it FEELING ROOMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The results were spectacular.
Still got the branded maraca.
Highlights - Playing the LIVE version of Sit Down by James while everyone chanted Brian McDermott's name to Seven Nation Army
- The sign that said don't request mumford and sons
-The bouncer who looked like a wartime spiv appearing to be openly dealing
-£2.50 jagerbombs, £2 bottles of beer
-They played the smiths and the place emptied
-As we left they were in the middle of the seventh Arctic Monkeys song in a row
with all the lights on. We know!
Some random guy was just wanking in the crowd.
didn't anyone/security notice? I hope they found the guy anyway.
I should have told security, but I just ran away. Out of the venue, kept running to the bus stop.
I'm really sorry to hear that - it sounds awful.
but my god i now hate it
and there's seating.
Oh, and there's not a huge queue at the bar.
And there's girls.
Spice Girls and Kylie?
FUCK THE ABSOLUTE FUCK OFF
i;m going to start a night night catering for pre-born babies.
I'm going to call it
a NIGHT CLUB
