Yeah, $15.. and that's only to cover the extra cost of Metros.. although I've been to recent normal gigs at Amplifier and Hyde Park that have been $13-14 anyway. :P
Also, as I mentioned I managed to get them to drop drink prices for the night so the more you drink the more value you get. ;)
If it is a good turn out and people put plenty of business across the bar, and we impress the Metros crew then it will give me power to negotiate a better deal for next time, and you'll get to see more of your fave bands on the big stage.

For the sake of metal in this state, evrybody should go to this gig.

A good response here will solidify metal music as a viable source of revenue for clubs as well as a source of entertainment for the rest of us.

Times are tough, and venues are being very conservative with their cashflow right now. Unfortunately, most decent venues around town are still of the mindset that heavy metal shows are too much effort to put on, with small crowd response and violent break-outs - ie a liability.

Having such an awesome venue with which to host these awards has to be seen as a huge achievement for metal ALREADY, but to make it a successful, well attended show could really open some avenues for metal.

When we have touring rock/prog/hardcore/metal bands, venues like this are usually packed, so I ask you all: "Can we not get them all back down for ONE significant night on the local roster?" Is it not too much to ask to grab a hold of those lame-ass friends you all have that 'claim' to follow metal, but only really come out to support the touring acts?

Daz, let me just say - YOU deserve the awards, and youve earnt the respect - Ive put shows like this on and I know what a mindscrew it can be coordinating something of this magnitude. You deserve props, not just for this awards night - but for (essentially) single-handedly guiding and supporting the entire metal scene for as long as I can remember (With the help of brothers Clay and Dave, of course!)

Even when I was out playing regular shows in 1996 and 1997 you guys were around helping me and others to get shows when we really had no idea what we were doing - And often when everyone else shut their doors to this kind of music. Your help is not something I would easily forget. Youve never asked anything in return and have always sunk your own time, sweat and shitloads of cash into this endeavour, in the hope that we may have a stronger scene to share in.

Well, we DO have a strong scene thanks to you, so take a bow mate - And for the rest of us who have benefitted from Daz's passion, its time to give something back. Be there, support the show, buy Darren a drink and be appreciative that someone like him exists. Without him, Clay and Dave, Western Front would not have made it to 2009, and many of us would have far few gigs to notch into our belts, if any at all.

Well done.

You know I'd be there if I could Daz. In the meantime I'm just spreading the WF word across Europe (well doing my best anyways!)
Cya in October and good luck to all the bands up for awards!  :headbang:

I invited a bunch of people I know to come along with me to this gig, and now I don't have a babysitter for my hellspawn. 

Something will work out.

Invites posted Tyron- I've got a whole bunch of lazy ass mates who like metal but haven't been to many local shows. Hopefully they'll put the bong down, and get out of the loungeroom for this one!  :headbang:

Ah thanks, Damo.. much appreciated.  :-[
I'm just happy to do what I can to promote the bands and the metal scene. I'm not doing it for recognition but I do appreciate it when people commend me or say thanks for doing what I do - it does make it feel a bit more worthwhile, although the state of the metal scene being as healthy as it is these days does that quite well too.  :)

Having said that, it was awesome and accomplished metal musicians such as yourself Damo, and many others that frequent these pages, that caused me to sit up and take notice and realise it was all well worth promoting and made me want to do whatever I could to see that done.
So thanks to you, the other musicians involved in the scene, past and present, and of course the fans that come along time after time to support it.

Let's face it, we all rule. Brothers and sisters of metal united!
