What was the name of the warehouse building where "Argon1" was held?

Was the Argon One warehouse RAVE Brisbane's first "WAREHOUSE" event?

What was 'unusual' about the enterance?

PEACE

which one was that? above the old coles building in the valley or the one in the city down towards (& across the road) to where the heritage hotel is now.. the warehouse I remember was the 'nexus' party in south brisbane - that was 1991, venue changed on the day of the party. I think originally it was to be at artspace (can't remember the name.. something with art in it)

AliaK, the "Beau Repairs" warehouse at South Brisbane was leased for the night.

Any information on any Raves in "Brisbane's Raving Era", would be great!

Cheers, all the best.

No, I never went to the Sea World party, what was it like?

Did you ever go to The Dome when it first opened at Milton?

The "Roundabout' parties where chasing at 'roundabout' that era, I've still got the flyers.

Thank you for the encouragement for preserving my articles and flyers.

I only remember parts of it- the drive down to the coast was fun in my sister's boyfriend's 4wd. met up with people in the carpark. the park was closed to the public. everyone had to catch the skylift thing across to the other side of the park and make their way to the top of the castle between the flume ride. I seem to remember some people went on the waterslide cos they'd just opened (though I could have this bit mixed up with another time we went). the djs were setup at the rear I think. I just remember everyone dancing - heaps of shirts off for the guys and lots of ppl wearing togs/shorts. probably about 200-250 people all up as a guess, maybe less. I have the ticket in a box somewhere..I think it was 1990. would love to see some photos of then but I didn't have a camera back then. there's a Gary Clail song which reminds me of this party but don't know the name of it! would know it if I heard it.. they used to play it all the time

yeah I used to live around the corner from the Dome when I was in brisbane so we used to walk there. my flatmate at the time used to know all the djs so we'd go quite often and she'd get us free/cheap drinks. nice little venue - nothing like seeing the stars when you're dancing. I didn't go outside much, mostly danced inside.

magic roundabout- I seem to remember that being the wed nights at metropolis. I seem to recall seeing Matt Kitshon's debut dj set there.. at least that was the first time I'd seen him dj in a club. another memory I have was at a party at transformers when some of the djs/dancers did a fashion parade - I can never remember which song, it was Dominator I think? was cool, such a great vibe. everyone used to have the craziest clothes and face painting/makeup- such glamour. I guess it's the same these days with the kids - it's just I'm not doing it (the dressing up & toys) myself as well.

First Rave i went to was Ozone at Transformers. I remember all the aircraft wings and shit coming outta the walls and floor there. I also remember a Barbie Doll looking woman downstairs dressed in leather with a snake around her neck. I believe General Base played and that was the first "international DJ" I had seen, some DJ's I remember at that party weere Kesson, Angus, Thief, Jen-E, Edwin I think, looking back these guys were the big name DJ's around back then and it's good to see most all of em still kicking about, this is all going from memories of about a decade ago now.

was Jen-E playing at transformers? I thought she started after it had closed.. more around sex shop time but it's all a blur now. I thought we'd gone to this little room above a run-down building across the road from where monastery is now..in that block. it was really just a corridor with a small space to each side, djs in one corner and really really dark - felt like the place was ready to be demolished even then(I don't know if it's still there) to catch this chick dj play her first set - and she played an elvis song! I can remember thinking that was cool that she played some different stuff..I don't think she was playing really hard till another time I saw her but can't remember for sure. I remember cos my soon to be ex had started hanging out with her or she'd joined their group one time when I was there so had to check out who this girl dj was. but I think transformers was closed by then - more of gogos/beat days? but then again, perhaps I dreamt it all in a jealous fit and put her in the dream cos i had seen her at transformers! ;)

That is some very wicked information!!!!!

Does anyone have anymore stories?

'Exodus' - warehouse Rave ( it was in Newfarm ).... rings a bell, I remember it got shut down and a best m8 suggested that we all continued at The Globe or The Site for free, it was friendly accepted and we all danced on till that break o' dawn, wicked! ;-)
