I recently heard that last week was going to be the final Flux Friday at Conduit, then I just read that even that final night has been cancelled.
So that means the Halloween show was the last night. I am going to miss everybody whose last name or e-mail I never got. Not having the chance to say goodbye reminds me all too much of how the owners treated us at the Melody in 2001. We all showed up that Tuesday night, ready to pour drinks and DJ 80's new wave for our loyal Melody-ites, only to find that the bar had to be closed, because the insurance had not been paid.
At least Flux got some warning, and could send out the information, but I will wager that there will still be people who show up, and never will find out what happened until much later.
One thing I have never understood is how club owners sometimes seem like they are not interested in the night being a success, almost as if they are actively BLOCKING people who know what they are doing to make the night a success. Plus, I don't get how people who do not already know and love music would want to open up a dance club in the first place.
I feel so bad for Joe, Pete, Lea, and everyone else. Philly is just too far for me to go regularly, so I guess it's QXT's...sigh.
