Real goth scene in Michigan? (x-posted) [Apr. 20th, 2006|05:36 pm]

I don't mean industrial/ebm/futurepop, but actual goth/deathrock/batcave scene? If you notice, how many deathrock clubs or nights are there in Michigan? Or how many times do you hear Sex Gang Children or Theatre of Hate out here? My name is Justin, I am a Deathrock/Batcave/Punk/Trad-Goth/Horrorpunk DJ (DJ Grimly Fiendish). I am tired of seeing the so called "goth nights/clubs" here only catering to the rivethead/neo-goth crowd. Oh, but "they play goth music there!". Yes, but aren't we tired of hearing "This Corrosion", "Lullaby" or "In the Flat Field"? Most "goth" clubs around here only play the (what I call) Top 40 Goth Tunes. Stuff that you can go home pop in the CD and here. Sure, its okay to throw in those tunes now and then, but a goth club to me is a place where you go to hear goth music. Not industrial dance or futurepop. I am not some hater of that music either, hell some of you may remember a DJ Synthetic:Love at one point. That was me, I am an ex-futurepop/ebm/industrial dance DJ. (Scene got too old and bland for me, and I prefered batcave and the such) I have tried getting gigs DJing around here, but I haven't had much luck because "there isn't a high demand for deathrock, batcave, and post-punk" in goth clubs. Excuse me? But isn't that what goth was founded around? I don't think Specimen was trying to pioneer the same thing Covenant is doing. What happened to the good old energetic dark tribal music of UK Decay? The humorous guitar laden music of Children on Stun? Shame...

I basically am trying to ask, as a GOTH DJ, who else feels there is no real goth scene in Michigan. Sure, we have a kick ass EBM and synthpop scene....but who doesn't? We need some good REAL goth nights. As well as some punk, psychobilly, and darkwave thrown in! NOT an EBM club with some (over played) goth thrown in.

If you are curious as to what I spin, here are some playlists of mine. Internet and Gig shows.


cheers,
Justin

What goth/old school/deathrcok nights if any are available in Michigan? I'm willing to drive from Ohio to find something.

Notice I said GOTH. Not EBM, not synth, and minimally industrial. I can get that stuff out this way.


Thanks!

October is almost here! This will be a place of contact for all things creepy, morbid, terrifying and noisy---
a sonic portal to fear, if you will.

So keep a detached eye on my posts here as the weeks unfold...and don't say I didn't warn you....

Beast Vicious,
