    If the call for more Drum & Bass in Pompey was definitely there I am sure something would happen ;]

    There is one idea floating about, will have to see what happens there!

    The problem with weeklys in portsmouth is that its hard to find a decent venue willing to let u have friday night - cos they usually have cheezorama which is popular and gets em loads of money!
    Weeklys on a day during the working week have been done before with limited success. I can think of about 4 of the top of my head.
    We used to do one in jonglers on a monday - the first got just between 250 and 300 but it only lasts a few months and people just stop going???

    If portsmouth wants events more often they have to be prepared to support them!

    Pompey does need more DnB. No doubt.

    Like everyone has said, there have been nights, but they have failed in one way or another.

    I think it is fair to say that a weekly night in Pompey on a fri/sat just won't happen. To much cheese around, and the clubs want money.

    To be honest as well, a weekly night in Pompey would not get that many people anyway...so it doesn't really matter about getting a fri/sat slot.....best to leave Fridays to Breakneck to mash everyone up!!!

    I think the best thing to do would be to get a small, but not too shite club to host a weekly on thurs/weds nights...i.e. Po na na in guildhall walk. Have DJs/MCs on rotation, and get as many promoters to join as poss to spread the funds. I think it should be something like £2 on the door, and the money going towards keeping the night running. I think it's be fair to say fees are not going to be acheivable....

    Anyone else agree????
