    davethedisc got a reaction from Tezza in Truthful Feedback   
    Mmm...I think what Tezza was eluding to hear may not be about criticism (constructive or otherwise) to help promoters rectify shortcomings but more a lack of honesty from the promoter or feedback poster regarding the true outcome of the event or the underlying motives for putting it on. Aliens visiting "Planet Northern" and using Soul Source event feedbacks as their guide would no doubt think that, there has never been a poorly attended do, all persons who get behind the decks do "crackin spots" and always to a full dance floor. In all walks of life where you are "into a scene" there will be liars, cheats, dullards, weirdos, deluded egotistical maniacs, sycophants and those who may not have the best interests of the "scene" in general at heart. You will fortunately, come across a large section of honest, genuine, intelligent, "normal", cheerful, dedicated people who have no hidden agendas and simply want to listen to the music they like and have a bit of a dance with some like minded souls. The scene belongs to everyone and no-one. You as an individual have the ability to assimilate information about an event and the people promoting or being associated with it, to process that information and then make a personal choice as to whether you wish to patronise and support that event. Some will take a moral stance regarding perceived validity of the presentation of the music and the format used to deliver it, others will use differing personally specific criteria to determine whether or not they will attend.
    I would suggest that you do not need qualifications in rocket propulsion to see through some of the feedback, just a few months on the scene and a few visits to different venues to gain an understanding of the musical variances within the "Rare/Northern Soul" genre and the promoters and DJs who tend to deliver the stuff you prefer, to be able to gauge what's right for you. On balance people tend to associate with those with similar likes and views to themselves. The good news is you have the power to make your own decisions! It would be unrealistic to expect people to be totally honest, you just need to read between the lines and make an informed choice.
