Yeah I think so. I was up on Sweenies rooftop having a beer on Saturday afternoon, I was thinking how rad Bare Essentials would be instead of the shitty tunes I was listening to. We've been having some good weekend weather lately

The whole thing about BE was the rooftop and on a Saturday arvo, perfect place to go before going out to where ever you were gonna go afterwards. BE in a room on Sunday, meh. No difference to any other Sunday party imo

The success of the party was 90% the rooftop, 10% the music that can be found anywhere in Sydney i.e. no connection to an indoors room at greenwood. No doubt it's good to get in with more established promoters, but they have their own thing there and should stick with it.

Yeah it would be a shame if they didn't utilize Sweeney's, such a sweet spot for a Saturday evening party in the open.

I disagree, there have been other parties on that rooftop that have done no where near as well. There is a rad crew of kids who are open minded, get down to deep grooves & are open minded, plus a whole bunch of people who came to see people like Claire Morgan, Matttt, The thug boys, Francis Inferno Orchestra & deepcast, Sam Roberts who was playing tracks pretty much no one in town would of had through his hot creations connection, Petter playing an awsome extended set. NYE with Jef K killing it. I could go on easy.

Agree the music and choices of DJs were always very good, point was that the location was the feature of the party and made it stand out. That's what sets it apart from any other Sydney deep house night like for e.g. the one at Tiki lounge which has a roster of solid DJs but quite frankly who wants to go to Bondi to listen to them?

It's up to them to leave a winning formula, someone else could slip right in pretty easily now. Just doesn't make much sense and I hope it isn't the case.

Wouldn't touch Sweeny's with a 10 foot pole. Sound restrictions, weather problems, those stairs

There are other and better roof tops in town..

.

People who live in the eastern suburbs??

Ironically I was involved in the Bondi junction night. It was a great location/venue, it was picking up and It was a matter of getting the word out to people in the nearby areas etc (it wasnt a massive venue (100 would of been packed). The venue had no money and wouldnt put any in so no promo ever got done. AND is launching there and has allready been going decently. Sydney is growing, so the scope for nights outsite of the city will too. I mean bondi junction anyhow is just a couple of stops and most venues just minutes from the station.


That said, I love that sweenys rooftop and would love to play some tracks & party there again sometime in the near future. I think BE at Sounds on Sunday will be awesome in that chapel, they can get dark, moody n twisted so It will go down well there imo.
