Midnight for 2006 is that, as the subject line implies, it's going to
be big! It's also an evening some of our fetish community friends
won't want to miss. Here's the full story...
The always request-friendly DJs Phae and Liebchen will be joined by
two DJs from the local fetish circuit, Hellion and Paura.
DJ Hellion move to D.C. last year from Houston, where she was a
resident at HaVok. Now one at Tomb (the Monday night 18+ fetish
event held at the U-Turn), she's already demonstrated her dance floor
mastery locally--spinning a hot mix of goth rock, electro,
industrial, synthpop, '80s, darkwave, and more. She'll be doing two
sets this Saturday.
DJ Paura will be celebrating his birthday with and doing an opening
set for us. Well known to many Midnight regulars for his past guest
spots, he's also our former staff photographer. Paura has spun at
Bound, Salo, and a variety of other D.C. area parties, worked as a
promoter and DJ for de Sade, and founded the Atlantis Poetry/Art
* We're pleased to welcome back Sadistic Leather
(www.sadisticleather.com) to The Meeting Place. Those who've caught
Christian's past appearances here or elsewhere know that he offers a
superbly-crafted line of cuffs, floggers, leads, and collars, plus
chainmail bras and other pieces. If you're into or curious about the
fetish/BDSM scene, this is a "don't miss" opportunity to stock up and
talk to an expert.
* Jamile, our resident tarot reader, will again be on hand to help
you figure out what the future holds, all for a donation of $3.00 or
more (please be generous!).
* Making his first Midnight vending appearance is Ben Tolman, who
recently approached us to see if we'd help him sell off his very
extensive CD collection. We're told he'll have both common and hard-
to-find items at great prices. Come early for the best selection.
Early's always a good time to show up at Midnight. Our first twelve
guests pay no cover every Saturday, we always leave out a tray of
free candy for your munching pleasure, and The Meeting Place's top-
rated bartenders serve up two-for-one drinks from 9:00 to 10:00 p.m.
If you arrive before the witching hour, be sure to fill out one of
the slips on our literature table and place it in the adjacent
cauldron. That enters you in the weekly CD drawing; and the latest
prizes include discs from Inkubus Sukkubus, The Last Dance, DJ
Ferret, Dancing Ferret, and Endanger.
About the same time we pick the winners, we'll be serving another
ration of free cake. This week we're celebrating the b'days of (take
a deep breath if you're reading this aloud) DJs Saint Aspartame,
Scary Dave, and Paura, plus Dave (DJ Liebchen's boy toy), Ashley, and
Emily (who's been gone far too long). H.B. also (here we go again)
to Jennifer M., Dave (of Conscious Structure fame), DJ Ruin,, Robin
from Philly, and Shanna. Be sure to wish them all the best!
Oh, and if you're hungry, don't forget that TMP serves a selection of
tasty burgers and sandwiches from opening until 2:00 a.m. See your
bartender for a copy of the latest menu.
Regardless of whether you're a regular at The Garden/Tomb/Bound or
just interested in the usual Midnight fare--great music, drinks, and
company--it's going to be an evening not to miss. So don't tell us
you got tied up. Come on down and party!
