Well, another excellent night! Sian was stressing about it, as usual, but I told her it’s easily the best indie/alternative night out in Derby at the moment. It reminds me of how the Blue Note used to be before loads of meatheads started slamdancing to every fucking record, no matter what it is.
The vibe at Scream is completely friendly and laid-back. There seems to be a large contingent of people who just want to dance like freaks to stuff that doesn’t get played in other clubs in Derby, like Peaches, Fischerspooner and Ladytron. (Not that the night is all synthpop, it’s mostly guitar indie but it’s good to hear some electronic stuff in there.) Yep, people are pissed-up but they’re not starting fights or behaving like twats.
So, cool music, freaky people – perfect!
