    Yeah, Avalon has consistently had good artists playing. If you buy early enough, you cant beat the $12 ticket.

    Avalon is 21+ on Saturday nights, Control on Fridays is always 18+ though.

    I've only seen it go 21+ once, because of a misunderstanding with their alcohol supplier.

    I am going tonight for Armand Van Helden. I'll be wearing the Duck Sauce shirt.

    Ive been to a bunch of CONTROL events (mostly when Mr.White and Gary were working together) and always have fun.. Avalon is big, has a great sound system, the LED wall is dope, theres always a solid dance floor, and the crowd is SO much better then Vanguard. I dont know what kinda deal they offer but if you wanna get on the list check out my friends over at GottaDanceDirty. They run one of the back rooms for CONTROL in addition to having a great blog so check it out

    Some warnings tho... The bouncers are harder then your average Hollywood club. Do NOT try and use a fake id because they will take it and laugh at you. Ive hosted two events there and the guys are strict professionals who dont mess around. Also they enforce the dress code so be sure to check the ticket link for what you can and cannot wear/bring.

    to be honest... I'm kind of disappointed in last night.
    Armand Van Helden just wasn't anything that stood out. He played some of his classics and some duck sauce, but mixed with a bunch of what everyone else is already playing... the styles are too different. tickets were higher priced last night, and there weren't any special guests... not much of a one year anniversary. oh well

    It was $20 18+ $15 21+ at the doors if you RSVP'd. Just an extra $5. Didn't end up going, kind of glad I didn't.

    The doormen/promotors were shady that night. My friends who RSVP'ed were told there would be no list that night. After finally speaking to management, the staff relented and let them in for $15. I don't think they honor the whole $10-with-flyer thing too. Shady and greedy all around. I knew I wouldn't be able to get there before 11 so I bought my ticket ahead of time and preboozed in the parking lot with other friends.

    Avalon has always been like that.

    Usually you have to get there by 10 PM for them to even consider the RSVP.

    And even if you buy tickets if you don't get there by 11:30 you may not get in.

    It's not a bad place, you just have to get there real early to guarantee admission unless you don't mind standing around forever, paying extra at the door, etc.

    i signed up for their guest list thing. it's supposed to get me in for free before 11 and $10 after 11 every Control night.

    i had a great time watching Mr. White, but i'll agree, Armand Van Helden was weak. looking forward to The Rapture on Friday, Plumps is the day after my birthday so we'll have to have a little party on that occasion, i'll definitely be at Vitalic and James Zabiela.

    who were the two boardies i saw there this friday? i can't for the life remember your names i was too wasted.
    LOL! <33
