Do you SERIUOUSLY think that young gays would dance to folk or jazz music on a night out? Centre Stage already tried nights like this and failed.

There are many different types and styles of music that we all like, but unless it's a current pop song or remixed dance track, the dancefloor would mostly remain empty .

Bullshit.
Hip-hop is huge. Hip-hop nights are on the rise. Hip-hop fills the dance floors. Why is there no gay hip-hop night?
Indie is huge. Indie nights always attract big crowds. Gay indie nights always attract big crowds. Indie music fills the dance floors. Why is there no gay indie night?
I could go on but won't bother.

Instead of choice, we get pop-dance nights and pure-dance nights and house-dance nights. Wonderful. Well done at thinking outside the box, there.

There are a hell of a lot of gaps in the gay scene. But the promotors just want to keep catering for the same people.

Maybe ask the DJs in the Grand Social, the Globe and countless other bars in Dublin which are full of people dancing and fully House music free.

Are gays a different species with completely and monolithic music tastes?

Seriously, this kind of narrow mindedness is the reason I haven't set foot in gay bars in a long, looooooooooong time. The fucking music gives me nausea now, I endured it long enough!

How nice of you to rank another persons opinion as bullshit. True to form as usual!!

Hip hop might be huge but would it fill the dance floor in the George or any of the club nights?

If gay indie nights were still huge then wouldn't Q&A still be going?

I bet of someone organised a night similar to Q&A it would be packed out, not just with gays who aren't into pop or house, but with gays who are but want something different for a change.

Ever go to Whelans and notice that their dance floor is pumping, why would one think that gay men/women are only into shitty teeny bopper music?

Your assertion that no other music but dance would fill a floor is bullshit, Boggy. It just is.

Look at the bars Frodo mentioned. Look at Q&A. I was at the last one; there wasn't space to move on the dancefloor and there were queues to get in all night. It's my understanding that the promotors stopped putting it on because they have day jobs that they had to concentrate on, nothing to do with the massive popularity of it.

As I've said, there are gaps in the market but all the promotors want to do is replicate every other night out there. Every few weeks this same discussion comes up here and every few weeks people list the kind of nights they would like to see. Can't you see that lots and lots of people want an alternative, Boggy? You like the scene as it is because your taste in music is catered for. But there are clearly people who don't like the scene because they can't find anything for them.

Exactly! It's as if gay men are supposed to be musically retarded!!

And those places have plenty of gay men who wouldn't be seen dead in the George and all its clones!

There was that other night (ALT, I think it was called) that ran a few times. I went to the last two and it got larger and more popular each time. You could see it being a massive fixture on the scene. Unfortunately it never came back - (there were rumours of venue issues but I don't know.) Anyway, whyever it didn't return, it certainly wasn't down to popularity.

The utter close-mindedness of the scene promotors (and scene queens) really drives me mad. People want a choice. But there hasn't been a choice on offer for five years!

All promotors seem to do is the cater for those already on the scene, without giving a shit about the hundreds of gay people not on the scene. Wouldn't it be better for the scene - and even the community - if promotors tried to gain their custom, and expand the outreach of the scene, instead of putting copycat clubs on every night of the week?

Apparently if you're not into posing on the dance floor while lip-synching to Rhianna and Beyonce you just don't count as a gay.

I've never said that all of my taste in music is catered for on the scene. Yes I like pop and dance music but that doesn't cover other types of music that I like.

A change of venue could have sorted that issue you mentioned with Q&A. I loved that night on the scene.

Yes of course I can see that other alternatives are needed on the scene but any nights like these that crop up tend not to last very long.

Don't get me wrong, I would welcome an alternative to whats there but you say this as if the promoters have a social duty to gays or anyone else??? If a night doesn't show signs of being profitable it'll be dropped. The best thing to do would be for gay people to be more openly gay at the many indie nights already out there.

What nights have cropped up in the last five years that offer an alternative? Seriously. It's five years since ALT stopped and there hasn't been one night I can think of that isn't dance based.
