Read on another board that he's playing at Kool Haus Mar 13, but I haven't heard about it anywhere else (Guv website, Digweed's site, and Collective). Anyways, just want to know if this is true.

I wish someone would find a way to get Digweed in System already.
I need to see that man play in a more intimate darker space.

Yes... I'd definitely like to see that happen... imagine System re-grand opening with diggers headlining... how great would that be!

Imagine the ticket price they'd have to charge in order for that to happen with Diggers headlining.... How great would that be?! :(

Cheers,

System is very reasonable for ticket prices, so I don't think that would be an issue at all.

I think Digweed is playing the following week at Stereo. I thought I read the 21st or something, but I'm not 100%.

When someone's fee is like 15k USD and you can only ram 1500 into your club.... that will change.

So 1500 people X $10 US = $15,000 US. Problem solved.

So $15 Canadian seems like a reasonable ticket price to me.

Hell, charge $20 or $25 to make sure the place isn't completely rammed.

:( Man, I miss being in Buffalo even more now, knowing that I can't drive a short 1 hour drive to hear my fav. dj.

I just hope it returns to Hollywood sooner than later.
Peace,

In other words, the only way for me to enjoy Digweed is lying on the floor with a pillow. :p

While in theory that works, they still have to pay bar staff, bouncers, other DJs, rent, etc.

I'd imagine seeing Diggers at System would cost at least $30. Probably more. Having a vague idea of what he charges, I'd imagine he's too expensive for System to be able to afford to bring him in without jacking the ticket price.

Ideally I'd like to see him there, but I don't think it's going to happen any time soon unless he expresses an interest in playing to a smaller crowd. This isn't Heaven and he doesn't live down the road like he does in London...

Cheers,

But all those things you outlined get paid from booze sales. And System sells a boatload of booze.

It's unfortunate that the big DJ's are pricing themselves so high that people really can't see them in a nice intimate venue.

Hopefully DJ's will price themselves so high that no one wants to book them anymore, but probably not. They'll pay, but won't go out for the next little while and miss out on supporting the up and comers.

Hmmm, the economics of DJing is beginning to sound a lot like...pro sports?
