Which club night do you miss the most?
« on: December 12, 2010, 03:53:44 pm »

I guess it depends when you grew up really.

From college I miss all the 70's nights that the Empire used to do on a Thursday; everyone from college used to go so you always knew loads of people out. Was Disco Inferno back then, followed by Love Bug. Class times. used to go to the Madison before hand and drink 50p hooch and have double vodka and orange for 1.50 in empire. used to go out with a tenner including taxi fair home to Nunthorpe between the 4 of us. mint. to a similar extent me, cooky, gaz and darran used to go to Planet pop/popalicious at the empire on thursdays years later which were mint as well, but died a death suddenly which was a shame.

For rock nights I'd say the obvious blaises even though its mostly nostalgia in that it was only good because everyone went; the place itself was terrible, but it was the only actual club playing that kind of stuff so it attracted the whole crowd. it wouldnt survive by todays standards with better venues, more people, cheaper drinks etc. good times though, still!! So yeah Blaises, and The Arena before the much maligned refurb. When we started off in the big purple room downstairs with the cargo net on the roof and the wall of speakers, it was a class night! Used to like it when i was at college as well, 10 in student night Mondays and all the lager and black you can fit in you. Me and gaz tried to start a night along the same lines, but maz glassed some girl in the face for looking at her funny after she'd poured a drink in the girls hair, and that was the end of that haha.

quite miss going to phono in leeds as well. another complete shit hole, but good times.

error in newcastle, great bookings, class venue (specially when it was at the red rooms). could go there by myself and know about half the people in there so always had good crack. Nice in newcastle as i used to go there almost every saturday for 2/3 years without fail and its where i met a lot of my freinds there. was always some good afterparties going on afterwards aswell. Road to rimini just had their last party which is a shame, as theres nowhere in the north east caters for that sort of music really..
dont really miss any in boro, used to like 69 but that was down to it being cheap as fuck and 'everyone' going there, the night itself was generally pretty shit. had a few good nights in sugarshack but wouldnt say i miss it. i do miss fresco lots though, i used to live in there on thursdays till it shut down.

someone said it was reopening back when the arena reopened, and that was ages ago.

I miss the arena with the big purple room and cargo netting, but that may partially be down to the fact I was 14 and it was a place where on the whole everyone was friendly as fuck and didnt really give a shit. Blackout was good for quite a period of time too, as with most nights you remember fondly its much more about the people that turned up week in week out than anything else.

Phono again a dive but loved it, novelty of it being in the middle of a shopping centre.

This!  Blaises will always have a special place in my heart as will Trashed at the Arena when it first started, before it moved upstairs.  Awesome times :)  I hate going out nowadays as nowhere ever lives up to my expectations anymore!

Blaises was the first night I loved and its been the only one that I've never wanted to miss a week. I never really went to the Arena. I've not really got in to a night since. We've got feck all like a night out in boro over here.

Some of the nights at uni I used to like like connexions and fruity and vodka frenzy but I worked most fri/sat nights throughout uni.

I think you summed it up by saying it's to do with how old you are.

with middlesbrough i'd say I had some amazing nights in the arena when it was needle damage, the music was bang on at the time for what I was listening to at home and it was the first club i properly went to, I was 15 and it was spot on.

Empire was good for a few years, through arena/playing in bands i'd got to know a few familiar faces and standing in 'the corner' with middlesbroughs club royalty and stubbsy on the decks was ace for a while too, but again it was mostly about being able to go out on my own and knowing I'd know loads of people in there and get a lift home from lippy.

Same as every other fucker in their late twenties/early thirties

Blaises - could get away with murder in there like, had a very strange vibe looking back as it was the only place that catered for anything vaguely alternative, and was cheap as fuck, I used to get stick off the lads I worked with at the time for going there and 'pulling dodgy goth slags' as they put it

Needle Damage - harrassed by Gaz into helping him out with a few things in the early days at Spencelys, some cracking nights as I was back at college by then so had a whole new group of little cunts to get pissed with, was great at the arena but I rarely went around the time when everyone bummed the libertines etc

Play - was fucking great, the Empire had never really had anything I'd wanted to go to til then, wish I'd gone more but had a blast when I was there

There's a couple I wouldn't mind going to (Creeps springs to mind) but being fucking skint and working in Newcastle puts paid to that. CUNTY

Club NME used to be mint, being 16, big group of us wearing shirt and ties cause we thought we'd get in looking 'older', probably looked like cunts.

Club NME had some surprisingly good bands playing at one point, the most notable from the top of my head being Holy Fuck.

I didn't go to Needle Damage as much as I would've wanted to, considering I looked insanely young, but the times I did go I had a pretty good/drunk time.
