After next to no sleep, a family brunch and a very sore head, I'm writing my review.
First off- This has been the first time I was out to a party in a month and a half or so, the last one being Big Bud.
The night was absolutely amazing.
I'll start off by saying that. While the decorations were good, the music was definetly sick and there were no huge disasters (well there were quite a few that happened to me, but that's a different story) what really made this party were the people.
The vibe I thought was incredible, for all of the crew I went out with, you better all still have those damn bracelets
(even if someone else gave you a better one kevin!)
Finally got to meet Mr. Alex D himself and I think I was a bit star struck as I remember blatherring on like a bit of an idiot, gushing about my respect for him, handing him a bracelet and running off to hide behind either Lori or Patrick in embarassment. This cool collected cat is apparently not so smooth ;D
While the night began in drunken debauchery (Kevin: Allie chug that wine (from a plastic glass) I need to rent that glass out) (Keith: I am NOT drinking that...(he did to the chorus of me and Anna going *chug chug* ) it ended in dancing and good music.
Lineup went smoothly, didn't have to wait to long, though the party sold out it was not completely crowded so you couldn't dance like so many parties get now adays. Bouncers for once were incredibly nice and respectful, especially the 6'4 giant dubbed 'Tiny'.
Big props to the decorating crew, the Opera House looked fantastic.
The early half of the night was spent mainly in the 19 + lounge ...cough...cough
- the only complaint of which I have to it is that it was so goddamn HOT up there. The humidity and heat in that place were KILLER. Anyone who saw me go in at the beginning of the party with straight sweet stylin hair and leave with what I can only affectionately dub 'an afro' or 'the bush' will understand this.
The music- There seemed to be some confusion as to what genres were being played to my dissapointment. The music was weaker earlier in the evening, but the crowd really got going at the end of the night. Grooverobber definetly had some good parts of his sets, Vinn-e as well. SICK set by the one and only Subsonic Chronic, though maybe I'm biased cuz I've met him a few times and he's a wicked guy. And has the sweetest girlfriend in the world! I was never really into breaks before this party, still not my number one choice of music but definetly has broadened my musical horizon.
My only other complaint was how many kids in the washroom were majorily sick off drugs, and how much extra time I had to help taking care of them. Not that I mind helping at all, but it made me really sad to see all these sketched out 14 and 15 year olds. People, if your going to use drugs at parties use responsibly! I'm not anti-drug just anti-abuse.
Major props to the Serenity Crew for a well planned party. I'll definetly be at the next festivities.
And to kife, basic, loress, alexd, galactic phantom and the rest of you with those bracelets...thanks for a wicked night
