so if melb has the capacity to run weekly gigs for this mix of genres... does that suggest that collaboratively we could fill a weekly nightspot aka superclub??

would be great to not have to know whats on & just roll down to the local club playing what u wanna hear each week...

hmm think about it i guess

dont agree. same venue each week gets tired real quickly.

diversity is the key. diversity of acts. diversity of venues. diversity of crews.

its what fun is made of.

Mm ok MrJ, but 2 outta 3 aint bad – diversity of acts & diversity of crowd.

don't forget about all the kids who don't know who in the world "calibre" is,, but likes to drink, dance and socialise..

Foo >>> yep ur right. but can we get numbers from all crews to know the current capacity is next question?

Same venue each week is a total loss.
Smaller crews would just start doing parties at other venues and you loose some of the regulars and your capacity is diminished.

jamesss >>> oooh local superstar would be cool... maybe a sponsored dj comp similar to DMC but for DnB/DubStep/Grime/Glitch/FGarage DJs? :D

That's not really what I meant!

I mean a local DJ/DJs who punters will be as excited / more excited to see than an international despite the fact they might be seeing them every week.

They seem to pop up from time to time.

Boogs is a good example from another genre I suppose.

was being sarcastic.

don't think it will happen in Melbourne for these genres. If revolver/lounge/p.o.w started doing saturday night dubstep local parties then maybe. but sif that gonna happen

great to see a list of things to do, would it be a stupid idea if someone could make an iphone app that promoters could log into & update events, fliers & bookings?
Anything out there close to it?
I reckon it would be a handy tool

as for local superstars, they're already here and have been here for a while, melbourne has so much local talent of international quality

there is such apps. i got offered one recently. however, they are for one venue/promoter only to use, not a full linked calendar of events. you pay quite a bit to set it up, you would want the majority of the population to have Iphones before doing that!

so Fail, in my mind.

an iphone app like this done professionally would cost about $5,000 at least

So if Cubist absalutely blows up in Europe while away. Lays down some tracks with some names, gets picked up by Metalheads and starts being named up top on fliers with UK players who we call stars here as support - then can we call him a local superstar and get excited about going to see him play?

Or will we just put (uk) after his name and not let the kids know he is from here to ensure they give nuff respect...

Great to see so many awesome gigs coming up and yes we are spoiled this year. For those of you who have ideas, put your money where your mouth is and do it yourself like the guys who are putting on the gigs mentioned in the list above rather than tell everyone else what to do and how it can or can't work.Simple.

Big ups Operatives, Too Much, Heavy Innit & BBA for putting on quality gigs over the last few years!
