SOL

I remember the days when poor Portland had almost no goth club scene and we here in Seattle had tons of goth and industrial clubs to choose from every Friday and Saturday night. I believe it has officially done a complete turn around. There are slim pickin's for Seattle goth folk and Portland keeps advertising all these great themed and costumed goth club events.

Last night I was supposed to join a group that wanted to celebrate at Noc Noc. But of course Noc Noc is no longer goth on Saturday nights. So the group high tails it over to the Vogue. Only the Vogue is not there. Instead, it's some awful disco night or something. The group has absolutely no choice but to try and figure out a way to get almost 20 non-members into the only goth club open that night...that is members only. A club in which everyone can expect to leave stinking like smoke, with their eyes and lungs burning (because they allow smoking).

When these are the only choices in this town on a Saturday night, I'd say our goth club scene is near dead. There are still parties and events to attend. And I still had fun clubbing on Thursday night and Friday night. But if you want to get dressed up in your goth finest and go clubbing on a Saturday night, some nights you will just be out of luck.

'Vogue' is now at the downstair part of Neigbours on Sat nights, and it's gothy, but in the way it was before.
Apparently it was not last night. I just assumed Vogue was at the downstairs Neighbors every Saturday night. Perhaps it's only on some Saturdays.
Well, here on LJ, they were advertising it for last night, and the poster says 'Every Sat', so that's weird. (You have to use the front door entrance.) Was it early and people just weren't all there yet?
It sounds like one of two things happened. Either DJ Doug being sick meant they canceled it for the night. Or it is entirely possible that out of the 20 people attending, not one of them actually knew where the entrance was and they all went into the wrong event. I don't know, because I was supposed to be there but couldn't get out there to join them. Now I wish I had made it out so I could have shown them where the entrance to Vogue was.
We went last week, and there were 3 DJs, but I don't know if this is the standard. I suspect it was them not knowing where to go. Oh well.
I'm starting to think you're right. I can't believe out of 18 or so people, not ONE of them knew where the entrance was. I'm going to ask one of them later tonight. If that was the case, I take back my comments.
Not knowing who these people are... maybe they didn't know-? I get the posts on LJ, and know from others, but maybe this group didn't have this info. With all the promoting they are doing, I find it hard to believe they would flake out on the night. I even saw them post that a night was cancelled due to a private party. I'm sure the business would've been welcomed.
DJ Eternal Darkness was sick and couldn't DJ. That might explain it.
Yeah I missed this, I guess when I had martian death flu. However, every Saturday night (with a few exceptions, and I'll post those) if you're in goth wear, Club Vogue is running at Neighbor's Underground. Again, I'd say try again!
