It’s 11:52 its a warm night in Sacramento, there are lines all over midtown/downtown waiting to get into the clubs. After 10 minutes you and your crew enters, looking for a place to sit. The crowd is lively, the setting is blue cool.
Once finding a place, we head for the dance floor, Ki$ha is Blowin…with every corner taken we squeeze in, Chris Brown keeps up on the floor, then the DJ changes up with some random electronic jam, its okay (now there more room on the floor) then he follows with more techno…. (we hang) then more, the dance floor is turning into a ghost town.
The DJ is cuing more music…. hopeful we hang on …its more random stuff. The DJ seems ablivious to the floor. A guy approaches the booth, the DJ nods, more shitty music. Finally a little S&M (the crowd returns) followed by Kate Perry and Super Bass, then he returns to the techno mess.
The best DJ’s at Faces, the old Avalon, are in tuned with the crowds…. Techno,slow rap, is good in small amounts, the best DJ’s can entertain and surprise us with a variety of music.
After paying anywhere from $5.oo to $30 at the door, you feel ripped if the music is bad…. Returning after a poor evening is unlikely. Word of mouth can close a club…..
