Hey All,

Going to be in these two cities over the next week and a half, and hoping to get recommendations for where to get my dance on.

Electronic muzak preferrably.

Grathiath

I was there last month too for over a week and had no problems with pickpocketers. I didn't see any attempts on other tourists either. My impression is that pickpocketers are rampant, because even the locals are careful about how they carry their bags and shit, but mainly they're just looking for easy targets. If you're not a knob about how you carry your valuables, you'll be alright.

I think just don't put your wallet in your back pocket - don't even bring a wallet out with you when you're out. Slip some euro and a card in your sock or in a money belt or leg band. Or if you're like my boyfriend, make the girl you're travelling with stash all your stuff in a purse that zips shut.

And I still vote that you should check out Moog ;)

Spanish study finds cocaine in the air in Madrid and Barcelona
Provided by: Associated Press
Written by: THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
May. 14, 2009

MADRID - Air pollution has long been a fact of life in Spanish cities, but scientists now say it is not just smog that chokes people as they walk to work or stroll through the park. A new study has found the air in Madrid and Barcelona is also laced with at least five drugs - most prominently cocaine.

The Superior Council of Scientific Investigations, a government institute, said on its website Thursday that in addition to cocaine, they found trace amounts of amphetamines, opiates, cannabinoids and lysergic acid -a relative of LSD - in two air-quality control stations, one in each cities.

Barcelona
Razzmatazz (4,000 capacity multi-room club) www.salarazzmatazz.com/
City Hall www.cityhall-bcn.com/

I went to both these places last summer. City Hall is a nice mid-size 2 room club with killer patio. Saw Andrew Weatherall there. Good night. Razzmatazz is crazy! Huge! There's 5 rooms there I think. The Loft is the room where you're likely to find the best music. I saw Dubfire there, and it was packed. Probably 1000 people in that room alone, and people were going OFF. They serve all night, the drinks they pour are HUGE (and expensive... but 9 euros for the equivalent of a quadruple jack & coke is reasonable). The lineup for this month is somewhat impressive. Boyz Noise, MSTRKRFT, Digweed, Mr. Oizo all on different nights... http://www.salarazzmatazz.com/clubs/theloft.php I recommend it highly.

Update -- ended up recruiting 17 people from the hostel i was staying in to go check out City Hall for a banging night of house tunes! Good times were had, including rocking out with some Italians who were losing their shit on the dance floor. 10 Euro drinks were a bit steep, so it was a good thing I marinated before hand with cheap 1-euro street beers, haha. Headed over to Moag around 5am, but they were still charging cover with only an hour left to go so we moved on.

I found some hole in the wall club just off rambla called Boxcar, that had one of the best vibes I've seen. The dj was on 3 decks mashing out AC/DC with Bob Sinclair when I walked in, super silly fun stuff. I stayed all night and it only got better. Shoulder to shoulder in there the whole time.

Good to hear you found something Dan!

lol!

do you mean Sidecar?

Weird. I was there last month and hated it. The vibe/music was like something you'd find in Dance Cave mixed with Grace O'Malley's on a Saturday, only on a crappier system. I'd read good reviews for it too so I was disappointed.

Oh, I think so! It's off and to the left of that side street, right? Yeah, it was so freaking hype when I was there.

This was over 2 years ago though. Maybe it's whack now.

you probably just landed on a really good night, like all the people who wrote the reviews I read, which makes the fact that it sucked so hard on the night I went burn so much more.

the good thing about it though is that the fun seems to get started earlier there than most other places. what kind of club opens at 3am? honestly. foreigners!

Cereal. I don't remember what time it was, but I recall other places weren't happening yet and that place was covered in awesomesauce already.
