Pacha does a lot of things in NYC and beyond, the idea that anything they do is "dirty" for NYC is a little ludicrous to me....that's just my opinion of course.
We all understand where you're coming from, or anyone who's working with them in the near future or have been for a long time. It's in your best interest to defend them.
I stopped supporting Pacha events after my last time seeing DT (which was probably like strike 24 after all the bad experiences I've had at that place). They closed all the doors in the upstairs room, told everyone we couldn't leave and panic ensued. People started freaking out and the bouncers stood behind the closed doors to make sure the crowd didn't topple them over. It was shoulder to shoulder packed and tensions were running high, no staff was to be seen anywhere other than the bar. After about an hour like this, people breathing on each other and mini-fights breaking out, they started letting in 3-5 people out per minute. It was like some kind of sick joke and I'll never understand why, because when I made it back to main floor (after an hour and a half stuck shoulder to shoulder with people) it was pretty much 50% empty, room everywhere. But still, a total torture box and fire hazard waiting to happen upstairs...
To imagine people having to deal with that again this weekend, either at the Beekman or at Pacha, it would be an absolute nightmare. From what I'm seeing and hearing, it was worse. Unacceptable, please don't defend them, the parties you play at and organize are almost always of the highest quality and vibe.
The boys are back in town....
