So what is this site all about ?

  • Well, I like to travel and I like to go to Goth Clubs.
  • I like to go to Gothic Festivals
  • I like to go to weird travel spots, some of them vaguely gothic

For a number of years there was a brilliant site at vamp.org, but about 2 years ago the site died hasn't been updated. :-(

So now I find myself hunting on various forums when I go somewhere, trying to find what clubs are on. This can be a little hard when you don't speak the language, trawling through forum posts, hoping to spot something for the day you'll be in town. So this site is designed to be a clear list with info such as, the usual day the club is on, location including directions and venue details.

There will be over time a bit of content from my photo collection & I hope others will want to share their views on different clubs and events. (forums, galleries, comment entries with the listings)

Here is a quick run through of some of the clubs, festivals & things I've been to, which should give a good idea of why I have started this site :-

  • Tokyo, Japan - Tokyo Goth & Darkwave (which is now Tokyo Dark Castle)
  • Kiev, Ukraine - to a mini-festival at which Das Ich played (thanks to Vinka, Polly & everyone on the Ukraine Gothic Forum for their help)
  • Lviv, Ukraine - to meet Dmitry from Global Promotions who brings bands to the Ukraine
  • Rome, Italy - several times to Jungle Club Roma, the Protestant Cemetery, Capuchin Crypt, Ancient Roman ruins.
  • Paris, France - to Le Rat Mort
  • London, UK - Slimelight, Electric Ballroom
  • San Francisco, CA, USA - I was there for a while, NYE 2000, Death Guild, Bondage A-Go-Go, etc
  • Los Angeles, CA, USA - Bar Sinister, Dungeon, Das Bunker, Miss Kitties
  • Las Vegas, USA - yeah I was surprised to find there was a goth club in Las Vegas, pretty good too.
  • Sydney, Australia - Die Maschine, Black Planet, Electric Ballroom, Ritual, Sanctuary, Armoury, Virus, Vortex, Bizerk, Shrine, etc
  • Melbourne, Australia - Gothic Ball, Abyss, Blue Velvet, Subculture, etc
  • Leipzig, Germany - WGT - Wave Gothic Treffen, I host an Australians in Leipzig drinks every year on Thursday
  • Hannover, Germany - M'era Luna Festival
  • Whitby, UK - Whitby Gothic Weekend
  • and I now live in New York with Salvation, Contempt, etc

 

I hope others will contribute to the site by

gothic.ie  - Dominion goth club Dublin     |193.120.128.xxx |2010-04-12 09:54:08
hi i was hoping you could pull the dominion entry that hasn't even got so much
as a link to our website, I submitted a full and up to date version myself {with
links and more detail}

also wondering if under continents you would consider
country and region sub-catagories as it would make it easier for people to find
the clubs near where they are visiting when the site starts to fill up
properly

I to share the dismay about the vamp club listings as we have moved
3 times our venue and it still pointed people at the wrong one, luckily we
turned full circle and are now back at that address

I intentionally left
price details blank as i see no way to update the details direct so it would be
better for people to get the fresh info from our site about prices etc.

Hello. Can't figure out how to remove club. ElektroLounge in San Francisco is
defunct... Please remove.
Thanks!

hmmm, yep I'll need to look into how to do that
"self serve" as you're
right there doesn't seem to be a way.
I have disabled the club from the Admin
interface side, so it should be good.

Thanks!
