I really REALLY hate night clubs in Galway. They are always filled with drunken idiots dancing to over the top loud shit chart music. I haven’t had a good night out in a club in since Cuba closed. That place had good people with good music. There is nothing like that in Galway anymore. From what I can see people go to these clubs to get as drunk as possible and don’t really care about the place, people or most importantly the music(Even though they say they are there for the music. If that was true you’d see more sober people). If you got some Today FM DJ or some other popular radio station DJ playing music, the crowd would be like this guy is amazing, purely because of said persons fame. You stick someone else up in the DJ booth who is 10 times more talented and they barely get a second look(besides their own friends) and get harassed to play Rhianna or some other pop song. Don’t get me wrong, I think Rhianna is talented, I just don’t like her music and the only reason most people listen to her and other pop artists like One Direction is because they don’t branch out and find music they like that isn’t pop. I could be wrong in saying that but I think with the general Galway “Clubber” this is the case. It’s all about get as much drink into ya as possible. Theres also a lot of shit DJs around. the crossfader riders. Who havent a clue how to use EQ properly and forever hitting that flanger effect. Galway has some great talented DJs but theres more shit than good.
An ideal night out for me would be going to see a talented band, have a few pints and a bit of fun with your friends. In pubs like this you can actually talk to people without shouting,”WHAT!” every 10 seconds. Here I can actually meet new people.
Thats my rant for the day
