I'm getting more and more frustrated at this site. After promising us a way of registering users so posts can be monitored, we are still to see any changes. I still see that this website is a vicious circle where people are using it to simply stir up emotions and feelings. I personally feel that we all have something to offer in the City of Sunderland and together can attempt to bring the city in line with other places in the UK. I still strongly believe that all this site does is give our new 6000 students and anyone visiting the city the wrong idea as to what out nightlife is all about. Let's hear a response from the website administrators as to how they intend to deal with this? And lets hear from DJ's experienced in the industry and city centre managers on their views about this website! Don't be afraid to use your real name, you've nothing to hide behind!

can i just bring everyones attention to DANS comment on the 20th september and ANTHS comment ont the gatsby page dated 14 sept how very simillar they are and they are both remarks about the djs well i wonder who works in both venues and is desperate to get work as a dj by slagging other djs off well if you wnt the answer just look at my name

who is the new dj on a sat? Dont mean to sound bad but his music wasnt right for the bar, its not the kinda music we want to listen to, didnt go down very well with others either, they were talking about it the toilets and at the bar, i am not the only person who has noticed this..... get it sorted
otherwise you will loose yet more custom to passion, i love it in the spider and dont want to be forced to passion but if this dj dusnt play the music we are used to hearing when we go to spider (which is every weekend) then looks like we may have to :-(

glass spider was always our last place to go on any night out, the price you pay to get in is just stupid, it wouldnt be too bad but the drinks arnt cheap either, it should have stayed free admishion or at the most two quid, but 5/6 is just going too far, its a shame because out crowd rly enjoyed it, but now its between clubbing and spider 9 times out ov 10 its clubbing, drop the entry fee and the punters will come flocking!

is the glass spider having any xmas parties thiss year?
2nd September 09
ive been to this place a few times with different friends different nights of week, and this place has a few edgy people, 3 times i and 1 or more of my friends have been subjected to abuse or threatened, (by not so much the older people but the younger ones, half of which i feel was well past their bedtime at 9pm). I will give bouncers their due they have spotted the real troublemakers and are very quick on sorting it out, but it does spoil your night, when these young ones are looking to make a name for themselves because they cant hold their alcohol!

this place used to be amazing. the staff the djs the managers were top class. Now there isnt any1 who works there now who did about to year ago, the djs have completely changed and funny enuf the bars they have gone to are now busy and doing great compared to the spider. Went in tonic and its the same story, different dj playing charty stuff compared to the quality funk and soul you used to hear which is such a shame because tonic and the spider used to be great places to be drink and eat, and ive also heard its getting like this with campus aswell

Whats happening to this place ? Why are the owners/manager letting it run into the ground ? Is it going to be the new Vision ? I hope not as it used to be a really nice place to go.

u shouldn't have been greedy in the first place charging people in and the place would be busy so i think you have lost your customers now, no turning back, me and the girls go to arizona now
