    30 years ago clubs were $15. Accounting for inflation $40,is a bargain.

    If they r up front facing the Dj maybe, they just can't dance. So it leaves more room for the dancers somewhere. I still trying to figure out why were Dj's standing in the middle of the dance floor @ the last AreaCode party I went to. I don't dance much but when I do, get the hell out of my way and leave Timmy alone.
    If I'm late, it's because I'm still using windows 95. I Love 90's House!!

    Seriously TR? Wow. What fricken clubs were these? I mean, 30 yrs ago I was 10 but was it a thing where they were paying to SEE/experience a dj? (as in the case threaded about here)......Or were you paying because you really wanted to get in to be part of the club's overall craziness & vibe??

    True, something here, that is why we like when a dj uses vinyl and he is moving around and ish

    For some, it is more about watching the DJ than experiencing the craziness & vibe. Some would argue that within some dance music scenes there isn't much craziness and vibe. That says a lot about who is attracted to dance music and the way people socialize when they go out these days.

    That was the going price to get in clubs. Garage was $8 for members and $15 for guests. Now people want the guest list for a $5 party.

    Mike, some of us use to get 5-8, even as much as $10 bucks to pay our way in...you would be surprised what folks would pay to get up in that place. Remember a member could bring in 4 guests....members use to get there with nothing in their pockets and end up having admission and beer money....the good days.
