Lockout Laws

Recommended Posts

fifi

Why is it that Sydney is now the only city in Australia with lockout laws?  That stupid f**kwit #casinomike has left politics now, so why hasn't Gladys Berejiklian gone and repealed the law?  Is she just as corrupt as him and wanting to line her pockets with the cason's money?

Come on Sydney, we need another march to show we won't roll over!

Actually Sydney is not the Only city with lock out laws.. it's just the only Major City with lock out laws, Newcastle have had lockout laws for about 10 years now, they were the first city in the country I believe to trial these laws.

Oh, thats terrible that they would model sydney after newcastle!  How did newcastle's nightlife fare after the introduction of the laws?  Did it die like sydney?

It killed it!  Not quite as bad as the Sydney scene, but it really killed it!  Clubs closed, others rebranded, this website shut down (it was known also as newcastle party.com), the record stores closed, people lost their jobs, the clubs that did stay open just played commercial rubbish to try to keep people there.  It was terrible.  It still hasn't recovered, especially the commercial rubbish everywhere!

I feel like the lockout laws were not really a solution anyway. There are always fights and people having heated discussions on my walk to a train station in the CBD. :|

Agreed!  The problems that #casinomike was trying to use as a reason all happened BEFORE 1am anyway!

Even the threat of lockout laws here in QLD made alot of venues wind down their acts and artists i noticed.  Two even closed because of the threat of the lockout laws.

      Has anyone actually decided to start fighting the lockout laws that killed our vibrant nightlife nearly a decade ago?  I know there was some discussion about it late last year, but like always it seems to fall on deaf (read: religious / aged / nanny-state) ears

    • 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!

    • Luigi Tozzi’s fathomless techno deep-dives and captivating biomorphic atmospherics have been a favorite of ours at Dub Monitor since the young Italian producer began regularly releasing in 2014. Tozzi is one of a surprising cohort of Italian producers who have distinguished themselves as an undeniable vanguard of ingenious experimentation in techno and commitment to its fusion of modernist and shamanistic impulses. Think of Lucy, the Dadub guys, Voices from the Lake, to name just a few. I was curious to know how Tozzi came to be doing what he’s doing, how he goes about making such weirdly organic techno, where he thinks Italian techno is going right now, and what his future plans might be.
