Dark Side of the Boom Update
transmission: email / website


First and fore most, last week a mistake was made while working on the Drop Bass Network email list. A blank message was accidentally sent to everyone. We apologize for that!


And now on to the DBN.NYE update:

Drop Bass Network
Dark Side of the Boom

Milwaukee area
New Years Eve
December 31, 2001
8:00 pm to 7:00 am

18 to enter : 21 to drink
identification required
limited capacity : 1500

this is not rave : this is future


We've been getting a lot of questions sent to us over the past few days and rather than answer each one individually here's an update that answers most. You can spread this info to people who might be interested.

The big question everyone is asking is about tickets...

The problem with doing a limited sized event is we want to be up front about our capacity, but at the same time we end up freaking a lot of people out who think they won't get in due to a sell out.

Ignore the rumors : THIS EVENT NOT SOLD OUT! There are plenty of tickets still available at all of the ticket locations. Typically we sell most of our NYE advance tickets after Christmas (when you can use the money Grandma gave you for a present). We expect tickets to go fast over the next few days.

We will be reserving a limited amount of tickets to be sold only on the day of the event at Revolutions, 524 N Water Street, Milwaukee. If you want to attend the event and couldn't make it to an advance location beforehand then just come to Revolutions sometime between noon and 5pm on the 31st.

Also, there will be a limited amount reserved for the door to accommodate travelers. If you are coming from outside of a presale area chances are you will be able to get in if you arrive at our venue early enough (like before 10pm).

As a last resort you can reserve tickets now with our will call. Just email your name, phone number, and the number of tickets you want to reserve to Make sure your group either comes together to the event or reserve tickets individually. We can only do so many will calls. They are first come first serve.

Tickets are $27 : advance and at door
limited to only 1500 tickets
buy in advance for guaranteed admission
avoid your disappointment due to sell out

Speaking of the venue, there has been a lot of speculation that because of our age limit this event is being held in a club. This event is not in a club! We have a fresh venue that we know you're going to dig.
