missy - You hit the nail on the head here. Decibel has been around now for 12 years and when I founded the organization in 2003, it was largely made up "post rave" fans of electronic music that didn't necessarily connect with electronic music culture. Over the years, our audience has grown younger, more diverse and more female. From my perspective, this is a healthy and natural progression of any organization. The vocal minority that seems to take issue with the audience at Q are largely made up of that older attendees that might be better served sticking to one of the other 11 venues that make up the Decibel program. At bare minimum, they shouldn't single out the one venue that they culturally don't feel a connection to, especially when the music, production value and thought that went into the program there were all spot on. Looking at the size of the crowd, the reviews of the events, the artist comments and the vibe I experienced in the room (particularly for the afterhours) Q was a complete success. I would venture to say 95% of the audience there felt the same. Here's to youth, vitality and the progression of underground electronic music to a new generation. I hope the avoid the same mistakes we did.

Absolutely devastating! Raf and Rita are longtime friends and I can tell you this could not have happened to two better human beings. PLEASE keep on the lookout online as much of Raf's gear is incredibly rare and will likely try to be sold via Craig's List.
