Fairwell to the Big O

Last night, lounging amongst the pillows, enjoying our evening slumber party before bed, we got to talking about the club nights around here. ChiarOscuro is about to croak, and since Nation is getting demolished along with the rest of Southeast, Alchemy will have to move or die. We're losing a lot of venues. I was expressing a little worry about it when E said "There's money to be made. Someone will always figure out a way to cram goths into a filthy hole and sell them rot-gut rail liquor."

This cheered me significantly.

Kirstin (whose new night, Ecumenica, would benefit from your patronage) says she thinks we might look at Northeast around New York Ave. for the next crop of venues. nixieq points out that this would be convenient for Baltimoreans who might like to pop down the Parkway.

In other news, my head is currently not spinning, and my office is holding largely still. This is encouraging.

Funny, we've been thinking about checking out more nights in Baltimore now (although I understand Steve Archer isn't DJing anymore).

Maybe the grownups can take over Midnight?

We caught Steve doing an odd set at Orpheus a coupla months ago, but I think he's focusing on meatier projects these days.

Yes, I think we should try to take over Midnight. What choice do we have?

Everyone needs to focus on me and citizen_ken winning Powerball so we can open our dream goth/punk/sp00ky surf music club/coffeehouse/used book and clothing store/artist space.

*whimper* I'd work there for minimum wage. I could die happy and fulfilled. Have you bought a ticket today? I'll reimburse you.

We could annex Midnight like a sp00ky Sudatenland. After all, it had always historicaly been part of Catacombist territory. We'd only be acting to protect the interests of our countrymen.

Not to dismiss any of your ideas (and I'm excited about Ecumenica as well), but there are plenty of club nights around the city that are already "goth friendly".

Bliss, Panic and Right Round (at the Black Cat)
Liberation Dance Party (at DC9)
A number of special nights by Mesdusa Productions (All Cure nights, all Smiths nights, etc)

Instead of rushing to OPEN SOMETHING NEW, why not see what else is out there?

All very much of interest. But here's my embarrassing confession: if it's not Friday or Saturday I can't go. Pretty much ever. At least until the diet and exercise improve my health and vitality to much greater levels, anyway.

I think *some* of the ones you mention happen on weekends, don't they? I will make an effort to find out. I really do want to support the scene, but it tends to fall through the cracks when there's a lot going on for us.

All of the nights mentioned above are normally Fridays or Saturdays.

Well, shows what I know. Excellent news. We will try to make it out to some of them soon.

I'm sorry to hear that Nation's about to go.

Yeah, you're in good company. Lotta good times at that space.

They are positioning the gentriforming ships over the old neighborhood even as we speak. Where will the crack heads go?

Isn't that pretty much where they all are already? It was gettin' kind of sketchy when I was living down that way 10 years ago. (side note: Isn't kind of sad how we're getting to that age where we can talk about stuff from ten years ago and it NOT involve something that happened in school?)

Let none ever question me when I declare athletics to be an actively pernicious force in society.

I never do, on that count (team sports, anyway).
