7. Safety

Unfortunately, we live in a society where leaving your drinks unattended can have some very serious consequences. Men and women get drugged at clubs all the time. Use the buddy system. Keep an eye out for each other and keep an eye out for how many drinks each of you have had.

You should also have a plan for getting home. Drunk driving is NEVER cool. Arrange to have a designated driver or take a cab to the venue. A $35 cab ride is far cheaper than the consequences for a DUI, or worse. You should get the Lyft or Uber app for your smartphone.

8. We’re not in a hockey rink

Bum rushing the stage is only appropriate never. It’s a night club, not a massive music festival. Chances are the venue isn’t that big. You will have a great vantage point from pretty much anywhere. So give people some room to move in. Nothing is worse than getting your groove on and having someone knock you over. We have even seen friends sustain broken bones from the stupidity of another.

9. Consent

I can’t believe we even need to say this; DON”T come up behind a girl and start grinding on them. It’s so so disgusting. That is something kids do when they are in 8th grade and there’s no reason they should be doing it either. When we become adults, we put away childish things. If you want to dance with a lady, be a gentleman, and buy her a drink.  Get to know her first. This plan of attack will yield much better results. Trust us.

Phillip was raised on so many different genres of music, it has given him a unique perspective into the ever evolving music scene. Trance music began defining his life at the young age of 14, but thoroughly enjoys any type of music equally. He sees the music as an escape from the daily doldrums of life and says music can change a persons life in an instant pulling from his own experiences. His only goal in life is to share wonderful music with people and take electronic music to a higher plain with more accountability and creating a safer environment for his friends.
