be pleased to
offer information on music events in the SW Florida area and in
cyberspace. What I find is that my part of SW Florida doesn't
support much in the way of a decent downtempo night out. There was an excellent discussion
at thedownbeat.org forum on ways
to go about promoting a downtempo night in a city that has
none. Plenty of good advice from those who have done it in various
parts of the country.
This has prompted me to
put a new twist on the BeatConscious events page ... Ladies and Gents, I
give you Stars of the Nightlife
Lounge. If this event ever moves from cyberspace to rental
space, you'll be the first to know.
How it was, back in
2001, when there was an event....
What's Up Next?
You may well ask ... this
is from Sarasota's
Radio Babe, published in the Ticket section of the 26 JAN 2001
FLYING THE COOP:
Punta Gorda's Club Vortex had planned a
giant bash ... originally touted as "The Very Special Event,"
that now, unfortunately, is "The Club Vortex
Someone actually took a plane for a
joyride, damaging it and several others on New Year's Eve at the Punta
Gorda airport where Vortex located (in the airport's Tailwinds Cafe.)
And while the crime and after-hours dance
spot have no connection (the club wasn't open New Year's,)
Tailwinds/Vortex leaseholder Cathy Mohr thinks it shook up the Airport
Authority (she said that they told her Vortex was a security liability.)
So, until we hear further, it seems that the "new
scene" in Charlotte County has gone under for the third time, leaving
just a little trail of bubbles....
