    I had to do some conivincing I was Gregs +1 in g-list- but I finally made it in.
    Once in I found my self in a large closet with turntables and finding out that the other room was full of jungle I danced around with my friends from Detroit who were up the weekend. I ventured into the second room after hearing that Jen was in there- but I never found her! Boourns! I danced around a bit- smoked a few joints and found my self seperated from my little group. Then Madame Zu came on and she didnt get me groovin' at all. I finally found my friends and spent most of my time goofing off with my friends digital camera and smoking more pot. Finally out of sheer bordem we left at 1 to go get Falafels. And they were the best part of the night. While I know this event did not live up to what it was going to be- I kind of wish Liquid Adrenaline went out with a bit more of a bang. Oh well. Fade Fade fade away...

    I arrived a the party around 5pm. The place was empty but started to fill up a bit around 7. Satori, twitch and AT-At played good sets in what was supposed to be the second room and also doubled as the entrance to the club...

    At 7 I went home chilled for a bit then came back around 12:30ish. Madame Zu was alright but wasn't really doing it for me. then came CZR(i think). his set also was nothing out of the ordinary but had me moving a bit. Harry 'choo choo' Remero on the other hand killed the party IMO. The place just cleared out.

    The only thing that made this night good was hatiris' set. I stayed untill the very last track. Security had cleared the club out not long after he started. The only people left were the ones on the stage, but the music didn't kept going, despit security's efforts to get hatiris to stop.
    Eventually they turned the sytstem off. The monitors were still on though but were turned off after 5 or so minutes.
    It's kind of sad that they had to go out in such a way.

    [​IMG]i had a really good time at this party.

    Walked into a sea of smiling faces and ravers who, you could tell were having an amazing time! [​IMG]

    The venue was good for this party. Too bad it wasn't at WWK, but still a cool place to party. The security are real pricks though...especially the one guy who almost didn't let Viper and I in because he didn't have his records in his hands 5 hours before his set! What is with that...i guess he has never carried a record bag before, but anyways...

    Didn't get there until Madame Zu's set and that was so good. Man, not only can she make amazing UK Hardhouse, but she can kick it live too! [​IMG] Glad I got to watch her from the stage and look out to see the crowd just loving every minute of it.

    Next was Czar's set and that was very cool. I was listening from back stage and it sounded to me like the crowd was groovin to it.

    Then was Harry Choo Choo Romero and his set was good too. My favorite part was his own little personal doubles record battle. It was totally spot on and when it finally broke, it was amazing. [​IMG]

    Then finished the night with Hitaris's set. I wish his set was a lot longer, but what he did get to play was so good! The best part was when the club people came to turn off the sound and everyone just looked at them as if to say "whatever". Then they turned off the sound and everyone kept partying on the stage to the sound from the monitor speakers. Hahaha security...we will prevale [​IMG]

    All in all, this was a very cool way to end an era of some of the best parties I have ever been to in my life. I can personally say that the Liquid Adrenaline parties will be sadly missed in our scene. Thanks for so many awesome paries Liquid crew! [​IMG]

    Big hugs [​IMG]

    i really wanted to check this party out, being liquids last party and all. however, by default and a persuasion, ended up at system (again!!!). we were planning on going to nv before home, but the line was too long for my friends. [​IMG] that's o.k. we only drove by the club, but it looked like a bunch of sketched out thugs. i'm still really curious to read more reviews on this event though. so tell all and in detail. maybe i can pretend i was there.

    It was a hell of a run. The end of Liquid Adrenaline could be a very important time historically for the scene as we know it.

    I think the torch is up for grabs amongst the next generation. Who ever is bold and willing enough to pick-up the peices and put some thing new together.

    We can do what we've always been doing or we can be innovative and progress into something new, and fresh, like socks straight out the dryer, all warm and shit.

    So who's up next to take the baton and run with it?

    Respect to Liquid. I hope which ever promoters up next to bring us some new parties will learn from this. Liquid should educate the next generation and hold seminars to wanabe promters on how to do it right and what they can expect when throwing parties. Seriously, they have mad experience and im sure they are wise in knowing what it takes to throw big time parties.

    We are interesting consumers who can be very critical, commercialism is everywhere and in the end its all about money. While keeping promters in check and not letting them not take advantage of us, we should also realize that they are working damn hard to provide us a service and show a little more respect and appreciation. I don't think Liquid fell into the shady promoter category at all. I think time just ran its course and that people will always bash the ones on top, until something new comes along.

    Im hoping the future will be bright and different.

    man that was a wierd experience

    the second room was so small but Phantasm, and Paranoid Jack played dayum good sets...
    the room got shut down shortly after tho...poo

    the main room...well
    Kenny Ken was sick
    Freaky Flow/Flippy And Choclair and crew were a different flavour that's for sure
    Madame Zu was too insane for me...but i got to meet her ;>
    Finally after a little delay CZR came on...
    hello!!....was very good, got me dancin'
    Then Harry...i wasn't thinkin' much until he played Daft Punk's Rollin' and Scratchin'
    and a new version of Voyager with vocals!!
    Stayed for a bit of Hatiras...was great...I just had to be taken away...
    The vibe was great...everyone having a good time...
    Security sucked.period.

    To the Liquid crew, I'm sorry it had to go down this way. I know more than anyting it's the hassles from authorities for throwing these parties that are getting you down...
    Good luck in the future...

    There's gotta be something we can do...

    oh btw, i kinda liked partying from 5pm till 3am...you actually feel useful the next day..:>

    peace in house music

    ps-CZR is a really nice guy, he came down off the stage just to talk to little old me!!
    pps-the muzik at my party on Thurs. blew last night out of the water...:p

    To all those who had an amazing time:
    let me tell u what was hapening outside from 10 pm on...

    TONS of ppl showing up to find out the venue is full and they will not get in NOR will they get there money back! fights over this, while the premoters literally hid inside the party and left security to do there dirty work. ppl were coming and saying "I drove all the way from buffalo cause i had a ticket and now i cant get into the party and u wont even refund me....i want my money back damn it!" even the head of security and manager of the Luxor went and yelled at the promoters to give ppl who dont get in there money back and the promoters would say "we dont have any money to give" while security said, "bullshit, i saw you taking plenty of cash at the door for 50 bucks a ticket!!!" i am glad it is liquid last party cause there partys always suck and u just cant do that to ppl....it is not right.

    oh yah, the firemarshall came by and inspected the place, besides beiing passed capacity the party was "illegal" as there were NO peramedics on site. (bottom of the flyer: Paramedics as always for your safety")

    good think no one overheated and died.

    What a joke.... I paid $40 just so I could spend 15 minutes pushing myself into the crowded "jungle room" (i.e. the *only* room), and then another 30 trying to get out. My friends and I left after a total of 45 minutes (all of it spent pushing our way in one direction or the other) and went downtown. I ended up getting piss drunk at a bar, then going to Embryus, and getting even more drunk.

    Speaking of Embryus, that place must be Toronto's best kept secret... Definetly the place to be on Saturdays this summer.

    Well lets see...got @ the Luxor at 6pm saw a huge mass of people waiting to get in, heard bouncer yell "people with tickets, over here" um, I thought liquid said, "only people with tickets will be admitted" ..? OK.. then the security kinda slapped my bf's arms and back and let him in, while me...I waited another 15 mins and then got seached for another 5. Finally got in, coat checked, organized, and saw that the 'other room' was the entrance hall...OK saw some ppl, that was cool, went into the jungle room,and never got out again... I love jungle, but I wanted to shoot myself lastnight. I don't know if it was just me, but the MC was really loud, and kinda annoying. Made my way upstairs to the seating areas which was just an escape for everyone to do their drugs, sat there for about an hour...waiting.....
    tried to go back to the other room (I guess it still existed at this point) and almost got trampled to death, there was a body jam in the hallway, then after 5 mins in that finally reached the lineup to get into the 'entrance hall' AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! so i stayed for Madam Zu ( who I have been waiting to hear for 1.5 years now)...first song was amazing, I don't know if she was having problems with the equipment but she wasn't mixing at all......nonetheless...I left right at 12...I saw poor Flex on my way out. Which reminded me of yet another fact....... WHERE WAS AT-AT, SEAN MILLER AND HALF OF THE OTHER TRANCE GUYS???? LIQUID QUOTE: ALL OF THE TALENT WILL BE PERFORMING
    yeah thats why they got cut ( maybe they cancelled but I know of one for sure that got cut....Voytek, you have no luck at that luxor place..think ATM [​IMG]
    But all in all, I was glad that I went. It pisses me off all the bullshit everyone went through, and it wasn't worth $40 but it was a goodbye I'll never forget and don't necessarily want to remember.

    Duvessa TRIBE Member

    um, who said this was liquid's last party?

    i never heard anything about that.......
    im so glad i didnt go to this party, crowded venues piss me off more than shitty music.

    as for the venue being small, since the party had to start earlier, (5pm instead of 2am) they had to go out and get a new venue at last minute. as for the no refunds, that really sucks, but liquid had to go out and spend way more money than anticipated on this party

    i dunno, throwing parties is difficult work, specially when the cops and other officials are against you.

    What can I say Liquid Adreneline - YOU GUYS TOTALLY SUCK - you officially get the biggest Boo-erns ever - are you really as daft and irresponsible as you seem??? Please convince me otherwise... showed up at about 11 to hit the party and was informed that they were "CLOSED" - WTF? AND no refunds - really I know that shit happens and that sometimes things happen beyond your control... however you are behaving like delinquent theives. I am very happy that you are done in this scene - I will only smile when you get the karmatic balance that is coming your way! WAY TO GO! If the Luxor incident wasn't enough - since we did not have bracelets from Luxor they said no way... the whole NV thing was worse. Could not get in to either party - you guys so royally suck! I want my money back... you know a class action suit may be in order, I have that much time to play with.

    On a positive note - because of your pathetic disorganization I had the most wonderful night of my life hanging out with the best person in the world at the foot of the now 25 year old CN Tower. Thanks KS - you are the best! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    LA - you are on so many people's lists now - you should really fix this and deal with the loss you are responsible for. [​IMG]

    LA have been around for quite some time now and they should have their act together..this isn't some small company just getting their feet wet in the industry...there are no excuses for a party to be run like that..
    personally i think the last 4 events i've been to from LA sucked ass...the new years party (which i'm glad i got in free ) was terrible...what a joke.

    no excuses....cops...venue change...nothing..
    backup venue should be enough to fill capacity of what u thought would show up at the waterpark.. u said no tickets would be sold at the door..however tickets were being sold at the door..dj's didn't get to play (people deserve money back for this poor excuse of a party) i hope those dj's who didn't get to spin, still got paid..

    LA- i hope this was your farwell party

    i wasn't there but, given all the stuff i've been reading/hearing lately, i just want to say that this sucks all around and i really feel bad for everyone involved (promoters and party-goers alike).

    i don't think there's any easy answer as to who's fault it was. but i will say that i think this ordeal is a good representation of everything that is wrong with the Toronto party scene from top to bottom (the authorities, the poor decision making, the spoiled partiers, an new/innovative idea turned to complete shit...) and it makes me sad.

    I was there around 6:30ish, got my guest list screwed over so I jus let my friend in and chilled outside, I bet it was soooo much better outside then it was inside (from what I heard anyways). Saw abit of ruckus, and almost a riot, pretty cool (never seen that at a rave before). I had a blast chilling outside and drinkin my alcohol and chiling with my friends, what a ruined night I left at 11. So from 6:30-11 I was outside, coool huh? Now I can honestly say that was the earliest I've left a rave [​IMG]

    Redout - mad dissappointed
