It's these little things that matter... Thanks P.
I think you're right btw. I'd keep an eye on Saturday the 20th.

I think the Amsterdam party will be the one to go to because at least you know Weatherall will be decent.

good news - the oval space was where body and soul was this year. A sweatbox, although in mid october that might not be an issue. The sound was dire for B&S, let's hope it's a different story for this
A Nu Breed Of Jazz
Fridays 20.00 - 22.00GMT
I can confirm that the sound will nothing like it was as B&S. My friends are doing the sound and I can assure you it will be a monster of a system.
good to hear but with respect to your friends the problem was only partly the system - the space has zillions of reflective surfaces: big sawtooth rooflights that clatter and a high ceiling, if this isn't sorted somehow the sound will never be right. That said the B&S system looked woefully underpowered for the size of the space & number of bodies and was distorting like a motherfucker
for sure if I can afford a ticket when the next batch goes on sale
i read a few of your other posts, i don't like you. i don't care if you never buy another record on z.
well I'm good at that sort of thing - any spares
bones what rig are they using a v dosc? array?
acoustically speaking huge stacks does not equal no quiet spots....are they actually acousticians or are they a big box party sound system?
i ask because i'm curious about the gear and i have a fair bit of experience running big rigs, looks like they are using arrays to stop modal cancellation with full digital processing, if it's the v series rig it's known on the circuit as being on the bright sounding side which could be worrying in that room.....it's gonna take top gear, top acoustic treatment and a great sound engineer to make a good noise there, it's much harder than doing open air events or spaces designed for good sound.
hope they get a good run at it.
although i was under the impression harvey is having his own 'sound dudes' setting up and supplying a system.....could it be a recipe for disaster....i hope not.
Oh yeah, forgot about that. I think my ticket in is unpacking and lugging speakers, amps and cables round at the end.....
Keep going Bones... You ramp up the excitement with each post I read.
you might be able to answer this then, Dj Bones. On the BIS piece Harvey says they're selling 5,000 tickets for a 1,000 space. That true? cheers.
I've heard that too, I know another batch of tickets are going on sale at some but I have no info on how many. I hope they're not selling 5,000 tickets for a venue that holds 1,000. If they do, lots of money will be made but there'll be a lot of pissed off people.
used to be parkz
I said just now I thought the whole thing was fantastic, I'll go further than that, it's absolute rubbish
Maybe the 5,000 will be fed in, in smaller groups and allowed to stay for a short time before being moved on to allow the next group to bask in His glory, as happens during an audience with the Queen or the Pope. This way, profits could be maximised whilst ensuring that the 5,000 are indeed, fed.
