Do clubbers want clubbing news?

Our news section is showing a great improvement since I lasted noted that we need to do something. That said, It has been a mixed bag. There is relevant clubbing news articles going up at the rate of three or four a week which is good. It could be better though. I was hoping to be able to do a couple a day and always be first with the breaking news.

At the moment it's more of an interesting aside than a fully researched section. The stories are short and don't have pictures. The rate is slower than I hoped because it takes about half an hour to re-write the content from it's orginal source. Also, I have compared the section to both online and offline clubbing news (like Trustthedj, DJ Magazine and Resident Advisor) and while we do well, there is room in the clubbing news arena to break stuff first, get instant reactions and do more in-depth analysis (perhaps in our features section).

Of course, this is all based on the assumption that clubbers want to read and comment on clubbing news. Is it seen as important or is it just a sneaky way for clubs and labels to get press releases read? Your thoughts, as always, are welcomed. Do clubbers want clubbing news?
