X JAPAN, NORTH WEST, UNITED KINGDOM MEETUP
« on: October 05, 2008, 08:39:19 PM »
A flyer for you guys which is poorly done since I'm no expert at photoshop xD

It has came to my attention that we have some members up in the North, who had hard times getting to the London meetups. By my knowledge we have 3 members (including myself) from Liverpool and loads more around the area and in North England. I would like to push forward a slight event which I think we should plan! I would like the members of X-Freaks to help me plan an X-Freaks meeting in Liverpool or Manchester (prefferably Manchester since it's bigger and easier to get to.) This event will be hosted by X Japan Unofficial Street Team UK and also ofcourse X-Freaks because it's an X-Freaks meeting altogether!

I really want all members in North England to attend since, I think it's convinient!  Members from South, United Kingdom are welcome to attend too because I was going to attend the London meetup!

We could discuss X Japan and our other favourite bands and get to know eachother just before the Paris gig  ;D

Transport:
National Express Coaches Cheap and easy coaches! :D

I would like people to:

DISCUSS:
Locations (including cities, venues, bars).
Your attendance!
Ideas?

I'd definitely be up for that , I'm from the North West myself so it's a lot cheaper than the London meetup!  :)

Manchester would be awesome (means I only have to sit on one train for 2 hours, plus I know my way around), but I'd be cool if it was somewhere else. I've never really been there for a night out, so the only decent bar I know there is the Salisbury. It's close to Oxford Road train station, and they play decent rock music (or at least I think they do... I've only been once and I was FAR from sober ;D).

It'd be easier for me to attend if it was on a saturday as I don't generally work weekends, but if it's another day I could possibly kiss up to my boss and get the day off.

And www.megabus.com also do really cheap coaches (for future reference - if you book early enough, you can get to London for £2.50. Amazing.)

Awesome! Yeah I heard about Megabus but I've never used them. I know they only do transport to London from my city. I've only ever been to 1 bar in Manchester. Jabez Clegg and it's a student bar and I recently found out that they have live entertainment on there alot so I think they're a venue aswell for live bands. (totally off-topic) but yeah, I went there when I was alot younger with my dad and his friends before football matches because the alcohol was alot cheaper xD

Yea I went to Jabez Clegg a few months ago for a gig. I'd never been there before, and I thought it was a lot closer to the train station than it actually was. Nobody I asked knew where it was either, I was walking for hours before I actually found it  ::)

I'm looking forward to this, it'll be cool to meet everyone before Paris... and to speak to someone who actually knows who X are! ;D Do you have a general idea of when it's going to happen? Or are you just waiting for everyone's input?

Sounds like a pretty good idea. I live in the Chester area myself, so getting to Liverpool or Manchester is not really an issue. I can't really give you much advice as I don't know the areas very well but I'd sure be up for it if you set a date and a location.

This meetup is definatly going to happen. Us X fans need to hang out alot more and we definatly need to get together before Paris...would make our Paris trip alot more enjoyable. Since us X fans will all be acquainted!

Not too far then ;D Hope I see you there. I'll put you down for attending ^^.

Thanks for posting, I really wanted to bump this thread. Please keep posting for me to encourage activity X_X. When do you think we could have this get together? Maybe Late-October - Early-Novemeber! What do you think after we get afew ideas we will then narrow it down to a date and then finally confirm our location.

Well a saturday would be a lot more convenient for me, since I never work sundays, but I could possibly arrange to have another day off if it wasn't on a saturday. I don't have any plans in the near future, so I could probably attend whenever, so I'll just wait for everyone else's suggestions :)

A Saturday would be preferable for me, as I have Uni Monday to Friday and Sundays are always a bad day.
