Bless Playlist 20-10-2003

I was very pleased with the turnout and response tonight. Instead of getting normal requests for mainstream chart stuff like The Strokes or The White Stripes, I got requests from one lad for Ugly Casanova and Modest Mouse.

I also chatted to a girl in the Blue Note afterwards who said she loved the night and looked forward to hearing new music. All very encouraging!

So – people do like hearing new music, despite what mainstream club promoters may think. I think of the half-empty club nights I’ve been to and I know in my heart it’s because all the “indie” clubs are chasing the same audience, which is a mainstream, student, NME/Amp demographic.

Perhaps if someone stuck their neck out and had a night playing different music from the norm, it might get some of the more obsessive music lovers out. I know I’d love to go to something like that.
