There is a very real cycle to nature itself at play currently, things must die for the new to sprout forth. (And death in this town, like everything else is over-kill!) I promise you, 19 year-olds are just as hungry for sonic electronic hardcore penetration now as much as, if not more than, they ever have been.
Mi7 is closed, not due to bad attendance, attendence was growing. It had three other strikes against it's future there: Club management geared towards profit-without need for growth. Competetiveness and vindictiveness between promoters. (The concept of fighting fair in New York needs applauded, while the other needs guidance. Good news, the goth/industrial labels are working hard to improve these matters.) And Vision, specifically with regards to Mi7, the creator has a vision. He's not one to compromise the farm just to earn a buck. Mi7 will most likely fair better in finding a new home one, that can accommodate 19+.
Personally I envision a dynamo party to happen in Greenpoint for several reasons. But we'll see ...
Addition to all this -- guess what, the sound is changing, it's simplifying becoming more melodic, girls are invading the forefronts (even encouraged by the likes of KMFDM) and noize, real noize is clanging on the other end of the spectrum. You are most welcome and encouraged to join in the N|dustrial Novae| topic in ArtMaker. Enthusiam for the subject matter and growing a connected community is esential to a club's survival in these modern times. And small clubs kick ass! DJ Saint Janes did short-lived stellar party sometime back called Rubber Revenge, would pick his brain on how he made that happen.
And Ted is right, if you came to partake and not generate, the city is a little maxed on vampires vs. heros ratio at the moment (no pun intended). But this is the cycle of death is it not? I loved your post and will do everything I can to encourage your interest in the subject (except can't tolerate crying too much over what things are not). Ask and I shall do what I can. Lastly aside from do-ers - supporters are needed, and, lovers. For every doer - one adoring face must exist in the crowd so encouraging the doer is inspired to go the extra mile. Personally, I'm so over excited about the future here I can not and will not contain myself!.
Did you go btw to Mi7? Why? Why not? Be honest. feedback is needed! (you've said so yourself in the premise of this thread) What do you think is cool? Or is it now spelled Kool?
