    Wish they had booked someone I didn't like for that day. What a waste...

    Mira will probably come on around 11.30 and Vitalic will probably be on at 1 or later. The people handling the lines are ridiculously inefficient. For Laidback Luke a few weeks ago, the line was down the block along the left side of Avalon for people who prepaid and they only had ONE person swiping credit cards. Meanwhile there was another line for people buying tickets at the right side of Avalon that was way shorter and seemed to move quicker. Two people were at the box office to handle those transactions. I think they figured it wouldn't hurt to let the people who already paid wait longer as they got more money from people buying tickets at the door. I only got in quickly because we cut everyone (yeah, I was THAT guy). Maybe going in the buy-tickets-at-the-door line and then skipping the B.O. and heading straight to the turnstile is the way to go.

    i ALWAYS wear shorts to shows, my raving is too contained and my loins too sweaty in jeans.

    WTF gives here? I might just wear my pull aways and rip those fuckers off as soon as the raving begins.

    Uh....trying to fight the sarcasm. The Avalon (The Palace) has been a club for at least 30 years.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    It all depends on who's playing. No one showed up for Alan Braxe a few weeks ago so everyone was able to go right in. In general, you'll get in if you bought your ticket. I've never tried getting in line after 11:30 though (I usually go in around 10:30-11). The only time you get problems is when a popular DJ is booked. Then it becomes a matter of how long you'll have to wait outside due to the staff's inefficiency and shadiness. If you RSVP'ed to one of Control's promoters for the night of a popular DJ, you better get there early. They don't care about you making it in before the RSVP cut off time because they want you to pay the up-the-ass prices at the door.

    As for the dress code, what everyone else mentioned is pretty much on the mark. I wore a cap there last month, and the door guy said I had to take it off in the club (I put it back on once inside, haha). I stopped wearing it after that in case they were going to start actually enforcing it.

    Yes, two guys, from Sweden, they did open for Tiesto, (they sound nothing like him whatsoever) they also played at Control back in September. They will be playing with autoKratz at Control on April 9th too.

    Wow. Crystal Method definitely delivered tonight! One of the guys even brought his girlfriend on stage and proposed to her. she said yes and the party continued! They played for almost 2 hours. killer set.

    If anyone is familiar with Mr White..Does can anyone ID a song he plays in his DJ set? Some killer techno song with the lyrics "We're from Los Angeles". that lyric repeats quite a few times...anyone familiar?
