Summer Party, or the Upstate Nightlife Scene [Apr. 19th, 2004|11:21 pm]
[mood |pensivepensive]

So I got an email today, the rave at the Bell Centre I was going with Corey to, (wait, that's a grammatical atrocity) got cancelled. This is far from the first letdown from 514 Productions, the promoter, let me tell you. As it turns out, the Habs season might be extended, so the Bell Centre might not be available on the 23rd. So instead of disappointing people into a riot-like state, they've cancelled ahead of time.

First they reopened a massive, expensive club (Sona) right downtown that I couldn't wait to visit. The renovation was being done in stages, with the goal being five rooms that could hold 45 000 people. Unfortunately, it seems there wasn't enough interest to support yet another club downtown. Sigh. I hope the rave scene doesn't die out just yet! Here's the announcement:

Swirl 2004 Annulé…

Plusieurs facteurs nous ont influencés dans la décision d'annuler l'événement Swirl. Dans un premier temps, nous désirons laisser retomber la poussière suite à la fermeture du Sona et calmement régler tout dossier s'y rattachant.

Deuxièmement, il y a la forte possibilité que nos Canadiens se retrouvent en finale à la date prévue et que le Centre Bell ne soit pas disponible. Cette possibilité fait de sorte que nous nous retrouvons en position de " stand by " pour la salle et devons mettre la promotion sur glace pour une période indéterminée. Par respect pour les artistes invités, le personnel impliqué et vous, la clientèle, nous avons jugé mieux de ne pas prendre de chance en s'aventurant dans une logistique compliquée de dernière minute. Tout compte fait, nous préférons annuler l'événement que d'en produire un qui n'aurait pas été à la hauteur de vos attentes ni de celles des artistes invités.

Nous profiterons donc de l'été pour se ressourcer pleinement et reviendrons avec un renouveau d'énergie dès le début spetembre pour l'événement CREAM 04. Nous vous communiquerons les détails en temps et lieu. Entre temps, bon été!

I am planning a bash at my house sometime in July, most of my friends (about 20 at last count) will be invited, you'll hear from me soon! All RPS friends are invited as well, if you can make it. My parents will be out camping, so we should be good to go. BTW, if you're reading this, please email me, i'm sooo bored.

I'm still not back into the swing of things, today was one long series of consecutive fuck-ups at work. Oh, well. Keep your stick on the ice!

Bon Mot du Jour- "Experience is something you gain just after you need it"

One last thing before I go, leafing through the NY Post, definitely not a paper I'd EVER buy, I stumbled upon a cogent point in favour of gay marriage. "Since when are civil rights based on public opinion? If that were the case, slavery would've lasted a lot longer than it did"

My next entry will include a few Gen-X neologisms, you might like it, I find Gen-X, the MTV generation kind of interesting. Bye. Seriously, that's it.
