the sound system has been tweaked, and the lasers have been installed!
all aboard for an epic night upstairs and downstairs!
trust me, this wont be turning into saturday @ family. it still has all the same elements of the traditional friday @ family, it's just been remixed and moved around to freshen things up for summer!

can you guarantee that the pretentious saturday night crowd wont be there?

TBH thats one of the main things i'm worried about. its a totally different place on saturday nights, the vibe just aint the same

^^ He won't just guarantee it, everyone from the previous saturday night will be locked up in a prison camp throughout the week and only let out of Auschfamz the following saturday. This will repeat every week to preserve dave's clubbing experience

no its all about you sitting on ITM piping on about how great it is but never actually getting off your ass to go support it. if you guys went in week in week out and actually filled the place this wouldnt have happened.

i actually am there week in and week out, every single friday.
anyone who knows me, knows what extent i go to every single week to support Family and katazyrna.

and it IS all about the money. they arent making enough over the bar to continue going the way they are going and in this industry its the money that counts.

perhaps you should stop hanging out on ITM piping on about how much of a know it all you are.

I'm just hoping they still bring some big harder acts and chuck them upstairs in conjunction with bringing big electro acts downstairs? Have the electro crowd and rave crowd all mingle as one? Would that work well? lol

I see organ donors are booked. They used to play decent uk hard dance.

I used to go week in week out for almost 3 years. But they struggled to get cloudlands off the ground it became obvious they stopped getting decent Friday acts. They've only just started getting decent acts again since cl opened.

they're playing in the pod though.. i would have thought that's not enough room for the number of people that would want to see them? maybe i'm overestimating

LOL the mainstream there-to-be-seen electroslush-lovin saturday night crowd are BIGGER munters than the friendly THERE FOR THE MUSIC friday night crowd. FACT. look at the amount of gurn at parklife for example (mainstream nove-esque crowd)

lets face it, the real reason for the downfall of fridays at family is

A) the loss of promo partner future entertainment

B) people just dont seem to be out as much on a friday night as much as they used to be 5 years ago. maybe its a change in work requirements (more people employed casually leading to more shift type work) or maybe people just cant be fucked anymore. i know times ive dropped into the met on a friday night the place is a ghost town too.


i really cant see this change in music policy doing anything other than alienating a lot of family's hardcore supporters. i know it's alienating me..

C) the rise of the festival - hurting clubland as a whole

D) the met - and it doesn't help that family lost future's business to their biggest rival

E) dirty dirty electro into the mainstream - plus alot of newcomers to the club scene probably dont even give other genres like trance a chance anymore because they're already force-fed this other crap, thus fri@fams wasn't gaining enough new followers to replace the past ones

A) saturday@family lost future too and is affected more so than friday nights (which may miss two or threee events a year because of it)

B) maybe its a change in the music they like?

ii) the met is and should always be a ghost town

there is simply not a proftiable market for hardcore or whatever you like to call it. its a simple as numbers, there arent enough punters going in so it has to become more niche (hence going into uncle) opening main room for house artists open fridays potential market to the thousands of ppl who attend monastery, gpo, birdees, empire and what not.
