The clubbers are backdrop. They are everywhere. They are plural-named and improper-named. The description is "Gus has drawn quite a crowd here tonight. Everyone likes to see a good humiliation, unfortunately."
Understand "people" and "crowd" as the clubbers.
Instead of talking to the clubbers:
say "There's no use going around talking to random people."
Instead of searching the clubbers:
say "You can't go around frisking random people!"
Instead of dancing with the clubbers:
try dancing with yourself.
The hint list of the clubbers is the table of no importance.
