That's Alan Simpson for ya. Iv'e got a room in the golf links booked (lush hotel) so no taxi's or standing in the cold at end of night! We got the last room and other hotels were fully booked so alot of people heading up (hopefully people that appreciate the music!). We are heading up about 2pm to start the party early. Really can't wait, looking forward to seeing the new lush and you both also.

See you there with the biggest smile ever!

I know I got the last double room ( three of us staying in it so think we will bring the blow up bed!) - you might be able to get a twin? If not, you and Darren can drop your stuff in the room and drop by for pre club banter!

You have such a drive ahead of you mr - be careful. Let me know how you get on with room.

If there's no room available, then I can't go sadly. Portrush is too far from home to be trying to get back post 2am.

Yup, I've widened the search to B&B's and everything so hopefully I can find out just how many people I'm getting a room for :D

Sounds like you are getting sorted. It St Pats weekend and that's prob why places are booked up also or maybe our markus is just sooooo popular!

Spoke too soon, no hotels available in a remotely reasonable price range, and the B&B's are booked up/unwilling to accept Lush! visitors/minimum of a 2 night stay...

Bad news all around I'm afraid!

Well after resigning myself to not being able to go because of the extortionate price of the available hotels (what little of them there were) I broadened my search to Coleraine and it's environs.

The Manor B&B/Hotel came through with a room so I'll be heading to this gig now :P

COMPLETELY AWESOME!

Lush! is an incredible club, it looks fantastic and the sound system..phwoaaaar! The only place that ever rattled me with bass was the Ministry of Sound, but Lush! certainly rivals the Ministry now. Incredible stuff, you'll hear it on the videos Darren took of the event.

Markus looked tired but didn't disappoint us except when he had to leave! A great tracklist on a top notch sound system, great company and an all around cracker of a night. Thanks to Budmonster & his girlfriend, Blueberry, Orla & her husband, Darren and of course Markus himself who even signed some autographs for me and his first copy of Toronto '09 \o/ (yes, I will tell that to anybody who will listen :lol: :lol: :lol: )

Videos and (limited) pictures to come later on in the week.


*Edit* - Just reviewed the videos and pictures. Some of the videos are marvellous, especially the Big Sky A/X remix and Rafael Frost's Red. Markus Schulz youtube exclusives I think :ugeek:

It was fantastic. I was delighted to hear Daydream of course! Markus was a star and really got everyone going. He is so good to his fans and people were delighted to get thier photos with him and autographs. Great atmosphere as always at Lush and I agree that the new layout is just fab.

It was brilliant to see so many fans there. We had our own little community in one spot. I had so many people ask me the name of tunes ( thanks to Danny for filling the gaps for me!).

My feet are wrecked. Totally covered in blisters from all the dancing in new shoes (stupid girl). I'm getting furry boots for London!.

It was lovely to meet Budmonster and Dawn for the first. Its great to know that there are people like me just round the corner!

The craic was 90 as they say. I was enjoying myself so much that I didn't really take any photos so really looking forward to seeing the usual from you Danny.

Only a month to go til London. :D

cannie wait
