For all sorts of reasons, these forums have been abandoned for some time, and they're no longer an accurate representation of what Punktastic is about today. We've spoken to many old and new users, and decided the time has come for us to say goodbye to what was a defining era for us. To those forum users of old, don’t be too down heartened. Although it’s no longer possible to post, we’re keeping everything as it was in an archive so people can relive the conversations that helped shape the industry and the scene over the last decade.

Even worse when some old guy starting chanting 'scum,' fucking unbelievable! I over heard some guy next to me saying 'this is why I hate punk.'
Just no sense what so ever.
Anyway, Propagandhi were good for the songs I saw, glad they played lots of new stuff. I'm just gutted that they're not doing any more northern dates, that would've sweetened the blow a bit.
Venue organisation / fire procedures were terrible though - we were at the back near the bar and couldn't hear what the guy standing on the stage waving manically was saying. Apparently it didn't occur to anyone to grab a microphone and say 'hey, there's a fire, please leave'. It was just word of mouth and that, pretty much, was the problem. While we were standing outside nobody bothered to explain what had happened which understandably pissed people off.
Thought the situation was handled very badly. Why when the promoter/stage manager/whoever is was came on to tell everyone to move outside did he not use one of the 3 mics in front of him instead of shouting and waving his hands?!? At no stage was anything conveyed to the crowd of what was happening. The fire brigade disappeared as quickly as they had arrived, so it was obvious the problem of fire had been dealt with.
f the promoter is telling the truth (no reason to doubt him...as this stage anyway :wink:
I am also absolutely sickened to hear that a club night still ran in the venue as scheduled when a matter of mere minutes previously the situation apparently was irretrievably damaged
At no stage was anything conveyed to the crowd of what was happening

Shit the way it all ended but to be honest Cop Out were mint so that'll do.
