Most of you probably already know about the yearly Convergence events- part convention, part festival, all party- which bring together fellow goths you communicate with over the ‘net (in former times, known as NetGoths; obviously, now pretty much everyone is on the ‘net!) Convergence is held in a different city each year; Chicago held the 1st & the 10th & is putting in a bid to be able to hold next year’s 20th.
Online voting is how the city is decided upon & as you are all active members of the online goth community, here’s your chance to have a say!!! You have a very limited time (like, NOW!) to register to be able to vote. To do so, go here:
And hey while you are there VOTE C20 CHICAGO

*BACK TO THE GRAVE is BACK!*
-FRIDAY, 31 MAY, 2013
BACK TO THE GRAVE is a quarterly (or so) club night devoted *entirely* to classic & current Goth, Deathrock & Post-Punk (no ebm at this particular party!) Expect great music, total creepy decor, rowdy fun & a batcave vibe… Wear your fishnets torn, your hair big, your corsets tight, & your makeup heavy! This is a party, after all!!!
If you’re one of the people who wish there was more actual GOTH played at the clubs in Chicago, I urge you not to miss this club night! The ebm nights thrive because a lot of people go and dance and the same can happen for the goth nights if *you* come out & tell your friends!
Your DJ hosts:
THE PIRATE TWINS (Scary Lady Sarah & William Faith)
DIRT NAP (Matthew Binswanger)
with special guest DJ CADAVERINE (Leo)
10pm – 2am (come early!!!)
In the main room at BOTTOM LOUNGE,
1275 W. Lake St, Chicago
