Catalan Culture 2004 Class Blog

Assignment 1 = Razzmatazz.

My first assignment is about a place where I am sure the majority of you have already been. It is my favourite club and so I will tell you about it from my point of view.

This place is 5 clubs in one building, which means that it caters for many peoples tastes, from rock to trance. You pay 12 euros to get in and that entitles you to a free drink and you can go (or stagger) between the five different clubs. All five rooms are open on a friday and saturday night from 1am.

I, however, like it for a different reason. Where I come from it is a big city that has been built up to cater for all kinds of musical performances, but most of these are in massive venues where you are lucky if you get to see the person who you have paid to go and see. In Razzmatazz I saw Evanescence gig and it was amazing, you get so close to the band and you are more involved in the whole place rather than being one in a sea of thousands of people. The atmosphere was great and the whole experience was worth the wait. If anyone is going to see Blur or Muse, who are there this month, if you get there earlier you don't have to queue so long. We didn't have to wait that long for this gig though so it was ok. For most bands the youngest you can get in is 16. So there should be no problem getting in, even though I did get asked for I.D. - must be because I look so innocent!! Hehe!!

When I went to see the Chemical Brothers here the wait to get in was a lot longer, it was crammed inside but it was excellent!

One last note, I love the place, but if you don't like the smell of hash it probably isn't for you. You should also try and get in by the entrance to the loft because there is usually less of a queue, this is on the right hand side of the building as you are looking at it.

Well thats my suggestion, hope that everyone who goes there enjoys themselves.
