Re: AVB at Mansion review.
overall, a great night but mostly due to the fact that armin is on a different level than every other DJ out there. he came out HARD and was thumping for the first hour. 2nd hour slowed down and the last hour was a perfect blend of everything. he got on the mic at 5 and said we're supposed to shut down but lets keep going and went on to play about half an hour's worth of classics. i was in heaven.
on the other hand - the place was RAMMED the entire night (until 445ish). i got there around 1 and my group (me, gf, best friend + his girl so only 4 of us) couldn't find a place to stand and have just a little room to move/dance for an hour. for some reason, mansion seems to always have a pretty obnoxious crowd. over half the space in club is for VIP. typical.
aside from space, i wish miami had another spot that was more party-friendly rather than VIP-friendly that brought big name DJs so that actual fans of the music could enjoy a night out without having to be all dressed up and surrounded by douchebags. unfortunately, i think that's an oxymoron because you need the douches to spend their money in order to bring in the DJs.
had to catch a plane back up north last night otherwise i would've also checked out A&B at amnesia as well.
