Convince us we're wrong!!!
« on: May 03, 2005, 05:05:59 pm »

lately friday nights at the arena dont seem to be what they used to be, when it was trashed up stairs, the acklam was packed by 8pm and there was always a cue, you were kept dancing till 2am and it was all and only rock. Now its very quiet in the acklam, no cues when it opens and now the best venue on a friday night dedicated to rock/punk/ metal has a room smaller than the empire, me and some other long term go-ers were talking and we all agreed that it's lost the meaning of a good rock night, the biggest room plays mainly indie and pop and the occassional rock. Sounds like complaning about room sizes, im not! Im not having a dig at the DJs or the event organisers, im just saying what happend to the hype about rock/punk/metal on a friday night? The purple room is meant to be the replacement of trashed?  We just think the arena on a friday night is loosing out because it is not as dedicated to the alternative rock night it used to be.

please convince me and others that we are wrong.

Seconded.

I went the the arena on friday and had a good night, a fair mix of stuff was played and the atmosphere way better than ND has been recently.

Maybe you should broaden your horizons further than just rock music?

And it was proper annoying when the Acklam was full because it was full of knobs.

in case you didn't notice, fridays aren't 'trashed' anymore, it's girls on top at no noise, and it's meant to be an eclectic mix of genre, not just metal and punk.

oh, and nu metal ended ooh, four years ago sonny jim.

I think it comes down to what you consider to be a good night out. For some a venue has to be packed with the dancefloor heaving for it to be a good night. It's popularity with the masses taking precedence over the quality and range which is produced. Fridays now don't just play the 'floorfillers' that everyone knows. It plays a huge range of genres and introduces you to song you never even  knew. It's unfair to compare trashed and the old Fridays out to what we have now. This is something new and different. And different takes some getting used to for some. Remember there was a time when Needle Damage for example was something tiny, and now it's booming and one of 'the' indie places to be. Just give it time

Don't take this wrong, this is just my opinion. Some people need to feel the 'vibe' of a packed house to really enjoy themselves and that's a personal preference.





Personally, I prefer there being less people....

There's more dancing space  :mikeisahomo

I like no noise as it is, if you're fed up of one thing, there's more rooms; There's more choice of music, too. And, you can actually FIND your mates in here, as opposed to not being able to see 2 foot in front of you.

Not that I'm complaining about the Mighty Trashed!

It's unfair to compare trashed and the old Fridays out to what we have now.

Everything is comparable..the fact that these are both friday nights  at the arena, makes them more so.

I enjoyed Trashed downstairs more than upstairs and I enjoyed Trashed upstairs more than NN.

The fact that there was an influx of new people who go to NN means that I know very few people there now, and so the past few times have spent most of the time upstairs talking to Alick

I think it's quite evident that he has noticed, that's what he's complaining about. And as a nu-metal fan (rofl I'm a fag etc) I can tell you it's continuing along just fine daughtery jimmette. Oh and even if it did end four years ago, what are we meant to do, invent a time machine or something?
I actually like NN as it is, but then again I wasn't here in the good old days so I can't compare. It seems that there aren't really any nights dedicated to that kind of music anymore though.

Have to say it is getting a bit stale in my opinion and I seem to be going less and less now.  Maybe it'll improve maybe it won't, time will tell but there's been a lot of time between Trashed ending & No Noise being where it is now and I don't think it's gotten any better, or stayed at the same level.  Only my opinion though as a lot of people like it how it is  :)
