This book takes you on a trip into the realm of the suburban nightclub. The suburban nightclub differs from a city club. Boys and girls who come together to make these nights possible know each other and know each other well. They live in the same streets, they wear the same clothes and they went to the same school.
Free from prying family eyes and schoolyard rule and most often fueled by recreational drugs the suburban nightclub establishes its own social order. Heroes are made, hearts are broken and moments become memories. Only after closing time does aspiration need to be tempered by reality.
Presented through the eyes of the participant, Cluburbia is divided into two sections. Part one casts a wide angle lens over the many actors who stage this show each and every weekend. Namely the staff, the entertainers and the stars of this particular show, the patrons themselves.
With teams selected, part two looks at how the players interact. One thing that you will not find in the table of contents is a chapter entitled 'backstage'. No need. The defining characteristic of the suburban nightclub is that the audience is more often than not far more interesting than the event itself.
