3:57 am - [EVENT](Chicago) NOCTURNA, Sat. 18 June- Different (but Cool!) Venue This Month!
- Saturday, 18 June, 2011:

***A different venue & time for this month's NOCTURNA- different, but cool!!!***

Nocturna, now in its 23rd year, is an 18+ dark alternative dance night held once a month in Chicago. DJ Scary Lady Sarah spins a highly request-driven mix of current & classic goth, industrial, post-punk, deathrock, ethereal, shoegaze, new wave, ebm, darkwave, dark indie & more. It's a lot of fun & you should go! ;)

(Nocturna will be back at Metro next month for our 23rd anniversary celebrations.)

At Bottom Lounge, 1375 W. Lake Street, Chicago.
(Note different times this month, too!) 9pm - 3am / 17+ / $10.

Good to know if you haven't been to Bottom Lounge before: free parking lot; plenty of free street parking; close to Green Line CTA; abundant cabs at closing; full bar & food menu available; great dancefloor, sound system, lights & atmosphere (plus all the NOCTURNA details & decor you know will be there!) :)

Thank you so much!!! Hope to see you there!!!

4:28 pm - World Goth Day Poll- Vote for Chicago!
Greetings!

It seems nowadays that LJ doesn't get a lot of attention (in the face of social networking sites like FB, for example) but I know there are still some friends out there reading! :)

There is an event called "World Goth Day" taking place on 22 May and the people organizing it are holding a big international vote on all things "goth." American Gothic Productions is represented several times in the finals, so if you wouldn't mind, please take two minutes to check out the poll and vote: http://www.worldgothday.com/awards.shtml

In the running are: Scary Lady Sarah (hey, that's me!) for best DJ; Nocturna for best club; William Faith for best male vocals and Chicago friend Deanna Deadly for favorite model.

Cheers!
