    Great line-up [​IMG]
    NO BODIES attending. [​IMG]
    The Luxor is a great venue. [​IMG]
    Poorly planned. [​IMG]
    People had been partying since Wednesday night because of the long weekend.
    Between the burn-out I am sure many felt by Sunday, the empty bank accounts with the amount of money required for some of the events, the location, etc., there were no more than 150 people at the busiest moment.
    Believe me, it was a fleeting moment.
    I think I might be kind with that big number.

    For Cajmere there were about 5-10 people dancing.
    For Gene Farris that number maybe rose to a whopping 20.
    By Harry Choo Choo Romero I was pretty much alone.
    I think everyone was in shock at how few people were there.
    Reminiscent of the Christmas Sneak Party looking at the doorway, waiting for the throng of people to come rushing in.
    It was amusing watching those on E because it looked like they felt lost not having enough other people on E around them to socialize with.
    Lots of head shaking on our parts. [​IMG]
    Was feeling like the only sober person in the place.
    What can ya do?

    For me it was like having a private party. We made the best of it and got our $25 worth.
    Kept on dancing to show support for the guys that flew in.
    We don't regret having gone.
    Lots of room to dance which is always a bonus for me.
    Maybe they'll have better luck with their May long weekend party.

    Maybe next time they'll be smart enough to actually throw a party the night before a holiday. Easter Monday is not a holiday for all, although it should be. It's a shame, pretty good line up.

    I had a feeling this party was going to bomb. I also wanted to go but it didn't seem like it was going to be a good turn-out because Monday wasn't a holiday. Plus i think the lack of people was just a combination of:
    1. the location
    2. the size of the venue
    3. 19 plus
    I'm all for 19+ paties but if your going to throw a party in a venue that big and expect a good turn-out it better be quite a phenomenal DJ line-up.

    Number 1 rule of party throwing

    No promotion = no attendance

    Number 2 rule of party throwing

    If you throw a string of bad parties, you lose what ever following they may have built up.

    (everyone seems to have forgotten First Contact, or that their great Eminiem flyer was the center of attention during the whole City council rave issue due to the obscene ammount of drug references)

    I actually went to that party or whatever you want to call what that was.
    It was terrible.
    I had the worst time ever.
    Plus I had NO respect what-so-ever for a bunch of dumbasses making the party seem like it was all about the drugs.
    Stupid flyer.
    Also hearing Eminem being a punk-ass on stage only made me HATE the guy rather than merely dilike him.
    I surely didn't care for his "music" and cared less for his personality.
