David likes nightlife like most people in his age, but more than that he likes the music, both professionally (being a radio technician) and as a personal passion. He already has been to all clubs in Tallinn, yet found most of them lacking in the atmosphere, the music being not up-to-date with his tastes, and feeling that he’s a stranger who got to a party by accident.
Today he’s planned a visit to the Manny Calavera club on Telliskivi street with a couple of friends from France whom he met at a afterparty of a music festival recently. He really wants to impress them, but the music in the club is boring, although the atmosphere is nice and homely. The club is really small and doesn’t have a DJ currently. They spend time listening to the anthems from the music festival in the headphones and remembering how great it was to be there.
Eventually they hear a really bad song by The Singing Pugs (and one that does not mix well with the previous one, by the Kitchensink Prophet, which was amazing). Having drunk a little, David decides to talk with the manager to change the playlist to his liking. However, the manager doesn’t want to do anything and gently refuses. David gets sad, after a while they leave the place and go home to do some improvised discotheque to their own tunes.
- How close to reality do you think could be David’s experience?
- Do you think the situation when you might want to change the tune in a venue is more probable when you’re there with somebody?
- How improbable for you is the situation when you want to show off your musical tastes or recent findings to your friends?
- Have you ever listened to The Singing Pugs?
