Goth night in Wisconsin! [Aug. 14th, 2011|10:21 pm]
Wisconsin Goth

Greetings, my minions! It is your humble community owner here to put forth a supposition. I am trying to create some buzz for a gothy night at a local music place in Janesville, Wisconsin. At the moment, the owner of the venue and I are in talks about the date and stuff, but, I want to know what kind of a turn out to expect. According to him, if the first night isn't a resounding success, then he won't have it again.

Since I grew up here, I know what a dearth of places for people to go and enjoy a good ol' goth night at a club. With that said, I'd like to get some feed back to see if anyone is interested. Madison is about an hour away, Chicago is two, and Milwaukee is also about two; this area is pretty barren when it comes to local gothiness.

What I'm really trying to find out is what kind of a demand there is for it and whether you peoples will tell other peoples to bring more peoples! The date would be in about three months and I'd be DJing the sets, taking requests for anyone that has anything they really want to hear. The music would be a mix of all kinds of stuff from all kinds of times. So, feedback? Comments? Questions?

Thanks a lot, everyone.

Awesome. Would you be able to spread the word around and possibly bring in more people, too? The owner is really adamant about making the first night a success and I really want to bring a cool place to go to in this area.

I'll do what I can, though I don't know a whole lot of people here yet.

If you have a flyer graphic, I'll spread some around.

Cool. That'd be awesome. The more people come, the awesomer.

I guess I better get to work on a flyer or something. Thanks.

I think I remembering seeing a post from you in a Chicago related LJ group about a year ago. I'm sure you're eager to finally get a night set up! Have you tried advertising this on Fetlife or other alternative-ish sites?

I know some people in the Janesville area who travel out to Madison to go to Inferno for their goth/alt/whatever events, and I know you aren't specifically mentioning a fetish related event...but I think there's definitely a market for this sort of thing in the area you're talking about.

Alas, the owner of the bar is kind of an unhelpful person, so, I am not sure when this will come about. Plus, he said that if the first night isn't a resounding success, then it will not happen; with the response I got on my various posts, it seemed like there would be little attendance. Welcome to the area, though. Where did you move here from? I know all about how it sucks to be here and have nowhere to go. I'll keep you updated in case anything else comes up with this.

Why did you move here from Arizona? Yeah, there really isn't much to look at here, in terms of a scene. For anything worth doing, you have to go to Madison. It's just the Wisconsin way to hide out all year long. How long have you been here?

Janesville does not deserve a goth scene. I'm the only motherfucker in this town who has a clue who Christian Death, 45 Grave, Bauhaus, Siouxsie, etc. even is.

Ever heard of Casey Strain? You're looking at him!!!!
