Two of our request-friendly resident DJs, Phae and London, will be on
hand this Saturday for your dancing pleasure; and they'll be joined
in the booth by one of our most popular guests, DJ Blacula.
Born in New York City, Blacula kicked off his musical career by
taking up drums at age four. By fourteen he was into electronics and
producing his own rap demos. Following his graduation from VCU, he
notes that he spent "5 years touring, producing and meeting hip-hop
labels to no avail." After discovering our music scene, he produced
a couple of independent goth records (most recently "Bitter and
Jaded" in 2002. A Midnight regular who continues to do gigs as a
drummer, Blacula turned his hand to DJing last year. Since his debut
at Midnight, he's spun at other clubs such as Bound and Tomb, too.
Come see for yourself why his sets are such a hit!
Over in the club's vending section you'll find two excellent ones:
* Slyx Fashions (http://slyx.com) offers an excellent line of latex
rubber clothing in gothic, fetish, and contemporary styles. Whether
off-the-rack or special-ordered, his creations could be used to
illustrate the words "high quality"; and they're very reasonably
priced as well! In addition, Slyx sells several styles of vac beds.
* There'll also be a gothic yard sale by Sondra Taylor, our former
associate promoter and one of our more stylish patrons. She's
promised to bring us a nice selection of men's and women's "designer
and upper end gothic clothing (brand labels, etc.)." She's also
rumored to be planning to wear something from Slyx while she vends.
