HI - I'm new to the forum, but I was inspired to join as I have visited some of the slammin vinyl events for the last couple of years, especially NYE... I love the music and the atmosphere as it all takes me back to ravin' when I was a lad in Manchester. Now I live in the South and have "responsibilities" but I still get some precious weekends! So, anyway my post is to ask about alternatives to these kind of events (legal or otherwise), as I can't take another 2 hours queueing in the freezing rain only to be treated like some psychotic schoolkid desperate to get a criminal record by fat blokes in uniforms just so I can dance and chat and relive some of the other things I used to do back in the day! I mean jeesus - haven't they got town centres to stop fights in or do the binge drinkers declare a truce on the nights I go out!? Anyway any advice as to good friendly events and sites that promote 'em would be much appreciated. I loved the last NYE at the NEC once I got in, but it would have been easier to break into number 10 downing street! cheers!
