June 4th, 2008

As hinted at in posts prior to running on Saturday, May 31st was the last Dark Rhapsody for a little while as I will be putting it on hold. This break may be permanent, I don't know yet.

I'd just like to stress that I'm not being "forced out" by the venue. The management and staff of the Sly Fox hotel have always been very helpful and I have not received any indications at all from them that they do not want me to run there in the future. The new "no burnt CDs" rule there did have some bearing on my decision, but only played a small part - the main reasons for my putting things on hold are personal ones.

I'd just like to thank everyone who's helped and supported Dark Rhapsody - everyone who's contributed a set, designed a poster, come along to enjoy the night, and of course the Sly Fox people.

Dark Rhapsody may run again, but at this stage I can't promise it.

Many thanks to Ziade for the flier/poster design.

April 16th, 2008

I need someone to design posters/fliers for the next running of Dark Rhapsody in May. Since the club is free entry, I can't pay more than shouting you a couple of drinks on the night. I would need the designs by the end of the month to give me enough time to have them printed up before the next time Ascension runs.

April 4th, 2008

We have a couple of slots available for people to contribute sets for the May 31 running of Dark Rhapsody, so if you'd like to have your favourite songs played in a "club", comment here or email me (bandiadudh-dr at yahoo dot com dot au). Guidelines for creating a set are here.

*** Unfortunately, this set crapped out as Once Beautiful was playing, so I had to skip ahead to the next one :(

December 31st, 2007

This is mostly for people coming to Dark Rhapsody this evening but also applies to party-ers in general ...

The Sly Fox managers asked me to let people know that the police have been dropping in to licensed venues a lot over Christmas, and it's expected they will do this same tonight. You all know what this means, I'm sure I don't need to spell it out. They're also making sure venues aren't serving people who are already intoxicated, so be prepared to be refused drinks if you get too squiffy.

Have a great New Year and I'll see you on the other side ...
