take the train or fly up to San Francisco. You can probably get up there for less then 100 bucks.           Both teams played hard

the thing is, from what i hear, it used to be much more so... it just sounds like the support has dwindled over time. el lay was getting all of the big headliners a year or two ago, but fewer and fewer people would attend the events... and the promoters could not afford to lose any more $$$ on big names when people just end up staying @ home. is it because there is no more interest in the music there? was it too expensive? are the fans there too jaded? granted, there are some core people out there that will always go to these events because they sincerely love the music, but it seems as though there were a lot of 'fair-weather' fans out there that will only go if there is a lot of hype about a particular event...           michael

Yes Sage you hit the nail right on the head. I lived in Southern California for about 2 months and I went to 3 events in LA. You could see that the organizers were obviously trying very hard and they put alot of money into the events.
The last one I went to was also the biggest, Peter Digital. But even though they invested thousands of dollars in bringing arguably the biggest psytrance DJ in the world to LA, the turnout was not much bigger then when they brought just local DJ's. I'm not pointing any fingers, but people always know how to complain about how there aren't any parties, and then when there actually is an event, then people just don't show up. Or they show up and complain about how there isn't any vibe and they leave early. I am sure that there will be parties again, the organizers are just giving people some time to think about how much they miss psy-trance. If you want something to blossom then come and show some support for it!           Both teams played hard

I think it's far from dead, I know sometimes it has it's ups and downs, and right now it's in a slum, but i think all around the la scene is very strong, and there is always soemthing going on every weekend.

Not dead by a longshot just resting...There was a party this past weekend in Santa Monica (DJs Avi, Kiva and Ricardo). No "big" names but local DJs who were willing to give us a little trance fix.

Part of the reason for the slack is money. Parties in L.A. have never been huge but that's why the support at every level is so important...

There is a forest party on 12/31 (within city limits).. details to be disclosed soon..This will be a very good one hope to see you all there!
