Re: Sooo, Bedrock last night?
Pretty good night. Good to feel that atmosphere that only Bedrock brings and yeah seemed a better crowd this year imo. Many many more Londoners compared to last year me thinks.
With the risk of repeating everyone elses thoughts, again the problem with Fire is the layout. The main entrance/exit/facilities/other rooms all lead to that front corner and it spoils it a bit for people just trying to stay down the front. Again the raised bit at the side with the steps I get the feeling is supposed to be there for dancing and spectating from height. However it just becomes the main route of moving from the back bar area to the other rooms/toilets/etc and thus its just a constant push and shove up there. Also could do with some air con in room 1 which I'm sure XOYO had?
Bedrock always conjures up that classic dark atmosphere like no other night can, but could do with using a better venue imo. I find myself getting lost in the music and then within five minutes - shove, again people bombarding to either get to the bar/back/front of the room or move between rooms and the moment is temporarily lost. Person after person attempting to move without spilling drinks doesn't exactly create a euphoria.
Also some of the effects lighting (blue beams) seemed to be out of use at the back of room 1, near the stage so the effects lighting was pretty much just over the lower section.
Good night on the whole but its the Bedrock atemosphere/crowd/music selection that is responsible for that not the venue by any means.
