@CllrTonyPage Campaign to stop development next to Facebar, Reading #rdg

For the partition please click through on this sentance
A very well run venue that is highly proactive on stopping disruption is subject to a new block of flats being built next door. There is concern they will make noise complaints even though the developers are well aware its next to a nightclub.

The nightclub employs several staff giving well needed work. The club has been very proactive in cutting noise. There is now better sound proofing, and the door staff do regular checks around the building to check you cant hear it out side noticably.

The club is now scanning ALL ID including of the promotors & DJs as a way of helping counteract any security issues\trouble.

The club is also one of the safest venues in town. It is also one of the few independant music venues that is highly regarded locally.

For more information on the planned development check out this article

New years Eve, Reading

On New Years Eve Acid909 were at Facebar. They joined forces with Yes Yes Y’all & Liquid Filth.

What is Acid909?

Acid909 is an Event created by Spliffy B. He noticed that event though there was a small techno scene, there was nothing regular. Spliffy Ended up creating a monthly event called Acid909 which have underground & International DJs alike at very good prices. It is hosted at Facebar, Reading.

Who are Yes Yes Y’all?

Yes Yes Y’all is Readings premier Hip Hop Event. This is the first NYE event they have embarked on. The resident DJs are Spliffy B & GG Angus. They always have guest rappers spitting on the mic.

Who are Liquid Filth?

This is another brainchild of Spliffy B. It was originally an event called Filth which was run by Spliffy down in Dorset. When he moved to Reading he noticed the whole drum n bass scene was jump up and sometimes oldskool jungle. He felt he wanted to do the sort of jungle he enjoyed which is Liquid & Darkcore. So he joined forces with MiNoR cOnFuSiOn, DJ Fiber, Slimz to bring back his event filth, under some deliberation they felt they’d call it liquid filth.

NYE in Reading
In the New years eve event Acid909 had Spliffy B repping, Liquid Filth had MiNoR cOnFuSiOn, and Yes Yes Y’all had GG Angus.

GG Angus decided he would go down a different route than normal to Yes Yes Y’all and play a stompy set of house. After this Spliffy B was on with Acid Techno, Gabba, Hard Tech & filthy drum n bass.

DJ Fiber came on for an out n out filthy set of Dubstep & Drum n bass in true Liquid Filth style, what Liquid Filth had created its renowned name around.

Spliffy B came back on after with a stormin set of oldskool Jungle, Acid Techno, Gabba, Hard Tech, Out n Out Filthy Drum n Bass and dirty breakcore.

This event was one of the busiest independent music events in Reading on New Years Eve.

The event finished at 4am with very satisfied Ravers 😉
