On Friday Night my local club was holding a Solid Gold Party Night. Which is a gig where a local radio DJ plays music from the past. In fact I think he might've raided the music library of the radio station her works at. It's music from the 50s to today. It's also intercut with music trivia where the DJ gives away CDs. I've now been to a couple of these nights and it's a very enjoyable night out.
What intrigued me was that even the youngens that were there that night even had a blast. Was a touch of the modern with Gangdam Style.
It got me thinking that if only there was a permanent place like this Newcastle. The only such place that I'm aware of that even exists is a place in the Sutherland Shire in Sydney call The Vinyl Room. A nightclub where they play classics. So basically nobody under the age of 30 would be within cooee of the place.
Some people who know me have often suggested that the reason I'm still single is because I don't get out and amounts it as often as is perceived I should. I have to admit that I've only been to a conventional nigh club once in my life. That night I was in bed by 10:30pm cause all the doof doof music was giving me a headache. I did make an exception recently when some of us were farewelling a work colleague who was moving onto much greener pastures. We went to an Irish pub in town that run a night club set up upstairs.
It felt weird being asked for ID to go in there considering I turn 33 this week and some of the other people in there that night I could've fathered in High School. I felt like an old fart
