    Are you more or less concerned about the turnout at the venue since it's Christmas? I've DJ'd on X-mas night a few times and the turnout was great (mind you they were parties catered to a specific ethnic clientelle (i.e. Greek night, etc., although I'm not Greek...lol)).

    If you don't feel like doing the gig, then don't do it. Simple as that.

    I think it all comes down to the crowd... will be a restaurant where you will have to play vomitive xmas tunes and other mainstream s****, or will it be a club where you'll mixing your usual blend of electronic music and the only difference will be the santa hats people will be wearing?

    On Xmas nights people are in a very upbeat mood and it's pretty easy to make a very memorable night, even more in a club environment.

    Is it a club that usually plays electronic music? Or it's a top 40 place with more commercial electronic music?

    how long are you going to spin? the whole night?
