Really what is up with the name of this place??? Seems a bit odd to me. I cant see how the name will appeal to the target market.

As for the NC Music Factory, Noah Lazes and family has owned this property for awhile now. It is located in the NE corner of the city close the I-77 and 277 interchange is. I think it is an exciting project and will be a great addition to downtown.

NC Music Factory,

Today, the word "paranoid" can be good thing! A website that just collects info from you......be careful, be VERY careful!!!

I guess my hesitation comes more just cuz the website doesn't have any other information other than a way to collect information, or am I just being too paranoid?

Most memberships to the new clubs require Driver's license numbers. They don't want Social #'s, so its a way to differentiate Bob Smith from Bob Smith.

The name doesn't bother me, it's just a marketing ploy and eh. I am not a club goer per se.

Jake as gosocial stated a few groups out there get together for these things. CYP had a great Howl at the Moon event. (ouch it hurt the next morning though)

Could someone explain the membership thing in clubs down here? I've seen other clubs where you need to be a member. Is it a certain law or something?

I'm used to clubs in Boston where you either waited in line or was a VIP. There was only one membership club but it was because it was after hours (2am-6am) and they didn't serve alcohol.

If an establishment does not serve food, the only way to obtain the liquor license is to make the club or bar private. It's really superficial at most places and membership usually does nothing more than get you into the place.

Yep, and management has to be able to prove they have members and that the membership list is legit - hence, they ask for DL info so they can prove that the list is genuine and not some faked up list just to get around regs re: serving alcohol.
