So what does everyone thing about the large influx of "live" entertainment in clubs these days?  It all started when Jamie Mulholland tried to infuse an African theme into Cain a few years back, and now it seems that drummers in clubs are ubiquitous even when it doesn't make sense for them to be there at all.  Take Pink Elephant for example, a euro-jet-set club replete with bongo drums.  What do Europeans, coke, and bongo drums have in common?  Sure everyone wants to bang on a pigskin when they are wasted and pretend they have rhythym and musical talent, but this circus sideshow doesn't really add up.

And then of course there are the piad dancers, who make it feel like...well a Las Vegas strip club.
