New location for Solace found!!!!!

Growing-up for goths

Why we are never going away! And why you might consider painting your nails black for your next interview. Punks grow out of it and ravers stop raving. Why do goths just carry on? Sociologists can explain

If you can't laugh at yourself, you've got a problem. This is hilarious.

What an amazing night! Fire dance! New faces! Old favorites! Thank you all for coming!

Solace approaches! Tonight we shall dance with the darkness!

I said this once before but it bears repeating, We will have a Belly Dance performance by Anaar! as our intermission at Solace this weekend!

To all our Vampires and Vixens,

Our timing works out beautifully this month. Perhaps you are cramming on your taxes right now, but once you have filed them on Friday you will be free to come out and play on Saturday. And any residual stress or angst will find a healthy release on the dance floor, as you swirl, kick, and jump to passionate Gothic music.
We will also have a gothic belly dance, performed by Anaar. She was well received when she performed with us last November; her energy and skill left us breathless. It will be wonderful to have her back.

Spooky Reminder! SOLACE is this Saturday. I'll be simply torn up if I don't see you there!

[03/25/11]   Unbelievable last Solace! no power no heat? no problem! when you act undead, partying in the dark is second nature!!! Congratulations to everyone on banding together to make a night worthy of remembrance.


This just in! I've just received word that we can look forward to a spooky cello performance by Unwoman as an interlude at this coming February solace. The official website of Unwoman (Erica Mulkey) including lyrics, bio, discography.

The Calligrapher -The Quay Brothers

I have been a fan of the brothers Quay since i saw the work they did for Tool's videos back in the early 90's. This stop motion gem was rejected by the BBC2 as an identity short... God knows why!! (maybe because at no point does it say BBC2 anywhere). merrp. An early short made by The Quay brothers

[01/16/11]   A usual, I had a lovely time last night. lot's of new faces and an Amazing spontaneous circus performance by Bunny and Alex. I guess that's just one of the perks of having your event in the home of performers!

[12/17/10]   December Solace! it's this Saturday... pick your outfit, call your friends, be there!

[12/02/10]   Our lovely hostess Persephone has created a fully dedicated Solace website,
Check it out, feedback appreciated

Did the rain make your hair wet? No problem! Wet hair is a goth fashion staple! Come to Solace!

[11/20/10]   ....It was a dark and stormy night...
Nothing like a rainy weekend to express your spookiness. Solace is tomarrow!

Sergey Ryupin & Elena Khvorova - Paso Doble

This is one of the most increadable performances I have ever seen... the screen is black for a bit before the dancers emerge but give it a sec... you won't regret it.

Solace is unique among goth clubs. So unique that it will probably appeal to non-typical club-goers. Think of your potential Solace-worthy friends and bring them along next time.

[08/25/10]   Dear Fans, last Solace was awesome for sure! but we allways aim to please. If any of you have suggestions, no matter how small or large, please post and we will consider it for implementation!
