Clubbing alone, anyone done it?

Recommended Posts

Jackbhoy

Thanks for having me on the forum.

I may have to go along to the Lobster Theremin night on the 23rd September(Nthng, Asquith, and Dj Huere) solo due to various friends not being able to make it.

Does anyone think this will look weird or should i just go and dance the night away to some quality tunes and meet some random people?

I think you can do it alone if you want.  I know a few people who go it alone and just chat to random people and enjoy the quality tunes there.  Good music will bring good people who are friendly and happy to meet other randoms..

@Kawalski did it when he first started going clubbing years ago, and now he knows so many people that its pretty much guaranteed that he will meet someone he knows when he goes out.  And even then, he still chats to randoms and meets new people every time :)

:twothumbs:     Thats what i was thinking.  

I've stayed by myself in clubs by myself before but only after going out with friends and then they pike out early and go home.   I always end up chatting to someone when out.

I reckon the hardest part will be the start of the night when I arrive and nobody is really up and dancing around yet.

Yeah, you're dead right.   And events like the Lobster Theremin showcase, because its a warehouse-style gig, most people are really friendly..  Also look around for @Jamie Grenenger, he's a really nice guy who is always up for a good chat and to meet new people who are keen to be there for the music :)  

Of course, the smoking area is a great place to meet randoms at events like these, even if you don't smoke.  haha..

Last event i went to there, the IWTFA gig, people were dancing from the start, so you won't have to be worried about being the first. :)  What i love about our scene is everyone is so welcoming!

@liberabit , you've gone to a few gigs solo yourself over the years too i believe?

Yeah i'll hang around the smoking area for a bit and have a few drinks and smoke. You're right that you always end up chatting to people there.

I'm glad the Brisbane scene is really taking off now and is very friendly, when i first arrived in Oz 12 years ago there was nothing around like there is now or maybe its just now that social media is big that events are easier to find.

Social media has really opened up the opportunity to find new gigs, but at the same time unless you know someone who knows about these gigs, sometimes the likes of facebook can make it difficult to find them.  But its definitely easier to find these gigs these days :)

Welcome to the forums @Jackbhoy

I sometimes go out alone, depending on where i'm going and whats on.  Often i'll end up chatting to someone randomly at the event.  I prefer to go out with friends, but not always can my friends make it, and if there's someone playing i'd like to see, i'll still go it alone.

I won't be at the Lobster Theremin event but i know a few who are going so you'll be in friendly company if you do go :)

yeah, cause my friends don't share an interest in some of the awesome music I like I'm occassionally in the situation of having to fly solo. 
 

who cares if you're there by yourself?  you're there for your reasons and if some idiot wants to judge you for it that's their problem.  but as has been said, you'll often just end up making some new friends anyway.

Same here.  My friends aren't very big techno/house fans so i don't get to these events as much as i should.   I'm just going to go alone from now on and meet some new friends who enjoy these events.

      So, as the dust has settled on our recent Attic event headlined by Laurence Guy—our fourth instalment—I am making available my recorded set from the evening.
      I opened up shop for the first hour on this occasion, so, accordingly; this is very much a lower, slower effort—105 BPM upwards—though, in doing so, I did my best to retain a lot of the melodic elements that make up our "Attic sound".
      I really enjoyed putting this one together and kicking off the night in a method that I saw fit—and what an evening it turned out to be!
      I hope you enjoy this one, all the same.
      Comments and feedback—and if you really enjoy it, bookings—are always welcome!
      'till next time!

      Factory 93 has once again completely transformed a stereotypical Los Angeles venue into an underground oasis for music lovers in the heart of Hollywood. Saturday the quickly growing Insomniac brand specifically for House and Techno music aficionados took over the Hollywood Palladium, one of the oldest and most well known performances venues in Los Angeles. This venue, which opened in 1940, has featured artists like: the Tommy Dorsey band featuring Frank Sinatra, who performed the night the venue first opened its doors; iconic rock artists including The Who and Led Zeppelin; more recent pop artists like Justin Timberlake; and, this past weekend it played host to house music legends Solomun and his +1 Hot Since 82. Only a huge brand like Insomniac could pull an event like this off while also completely changing a well known concert venue into a living and breathing nightclub atmosphere where the social environment is as important as the music.
      From its forays at EDC to the collaboration with Exchange LA, a nightclub housed in the former stock market downtown, to the warehouse renovation in order to give Factory 93 a home in Los Angeles: the Insomniac brand has always understood the concept of the social requirements of electronic music. We go out to see certain artists and to dance, that is a givien; however, we go out to see and experience each other too. Initially I was slightly disappointed such a huge event as a Solomun+1 show would be happening at the Palladium, no matter how iconic it is. This venue is a concert venue and organized for fans to watch a show. Yes, dance music artists have played there before, but the set up does not encourage the interactive dancing and social atmosphere which a nightclub inherently has.
      However, upon walking in I immediately realized that for a Factory 93 event one will never get simply what they expect. The production team had completely reoriented the space and transformed the giant venue into a oblong nightclub. They built their own stage on the far left side rather than use the stage to the front of the entrance. It was fully equipped with lasers and led panels completed by a disco ball covering the crowd in prismatic glitter. They put in extra bars along where the stage normally sits which enhanced the nightclub atmosphere and reduced wait times to grab a drink. The entire venue was a bar and the entire bar was the dance floor.
      Hot Since 82 came on and enticed the crowd into a dance. However, the atmosphere created allowed for the chatting one can expect at the beginning of the night out in any city. As his set continued the white noise began to dissipate as his tone became a little deeper leading in perfectly to Solomun himself. The sets merged together seamlessly. I had not seen Solomun in action before and it was truly mesmerizing. The Factory 93 team had perfectly designed the visuals to enhance his music without being too distracting. The lasers hit at just the right moments and certain drops brought a flood of light allowing the smiles from across the room to be shared by all. Fans dancers waved brought a touch of a breeze to us all as we sweat together and danced the night away. They ended with a b2b set which tapered off every so slightly from the depth Solomun had brought us into and allowed us to make our way out and back into reality again.
      The only odd thing about the whole setup was that the VIP area was directly above the stage. People who had paid more money for a table or VIP access had no view of the DJs or stage itself. They did, however, have access to an exclusive bar and bathroom without a line. Also, there was no reason they couldn’t go downstairs and merge with the rest of the crowd. I can see how some people may have been put off; but, the venue was more of a nightclub than a concert venue. I think it may have forced more interaction than would have been the case on a normal night in Hollywood. Hollywood is a city where people love to feel exclusive. The show brought out an interesting mix of the Hollywood norm of bandage dresses and heels alongside bros wearing Factory 93 snapbacks and girls in glitter and combat boots. It was an amalgamation on Hollywood and the dance music community and Factory 93 created the perfect space for mixing without overemphasizing exclusivity. The change put everyone on more equal footing and the rearrangement made the dance floor large enough to accommodate a large crown without overcrowding.
      Solomun+1 was a huge success and I think perfectly highlights what Insomniac is seeking to do with the Factory 93 brand: bring together underground music lovers in safe spaces to share and experience music and culture. They never settle to simply use a venue the way it is but transform it to perfectly fit the artists and fans they bring into the space. It felt like I was in a new nightclub event though the Palladium has been around since the Golden Age of Hollywood. It shows Factory 93’s understanding of underground culture and I am excited for more collaborations with artists and venues to come in 2018.

    • Another day, another report of dangerous pills. Allison of KnowYourStuffNZ has been busy telling all the kiwi boys and girls about the circulation of high dose ecstasy and we’re here to pass some of that info onto you!
      New Zealand being our neighbours it’s somewhat safe to assume we’re getting some of the similar imports and the good people at The Spinoff have recently put out an article detailing some of the issues with what’s going around.
      What we can tell you is to approach a few with increased caution. On that list: Green Guccis, Yellow Rolexes and Pink Porsches. The Porsches in particular have been found to have pharmaceutical agents, so that’s usually a big ol’ no go.
      As always, we don’t condone it, but understand it happens. Look after yourselves and your friends!
