Tribe at Darkrave?

I read DJ Lazarus' message to some mailing lists I'm on...he said Tribe was at the Darkrave at the Reverb this past Saturday. I'm always there, so I was wondering who from Tribe was there.

Cool! Glad you liked it...in case you saw me, I was the supertall girl in big shiny boots (thanks to the platforms) in a short black skirt, black Cyberdog tank, and red 'n black braided bunches of hair.

Wellll...I don't know too much about dance music to really describe it aptly, but I think it's a good mix of trance/industrial/techno/whatever. Goes from 10 PM to 5 AM the first Saturday of every month at the Reverb, and this past Sat. was the 2nd anniversary. There are 3 rooms in total...the main room plus two "chill-out" kinda spaces with different DJs, CD vendors and comfy couches and chairs. Sometimes bands play (recently Psyche and Implant, previously VnV Nation, and there are more coming up).

It attracts a good variety of people, from goths to ravers to a few hippies. Very little "shit" goes on that I've witnessed, though last Sat. I did get someone who looked seriously screwed up get thrown out (didn't recognize him). Lots of great eye candy, and a lot of people I know from goth/industrial clubs (where I usually can be found) go. $10 cover. Oh, and this past Saturday had a big bouncy fun castle!

Check out www.djlazarus.com for more info on DJs, upcoming performances etc. I urge you to check it out if it piques your interest!

well, ^^^^^^ that makes me want to go to a darkrave


but seriously, how does a farily casual type like myself dress for a darkrave, i've been meaning to go for while, get back to my goth-wannabe roots and all that but i have a feeling that the usual khaki cargos/button t combo will stand out like a bump on a log.

i guess it's time to reach way back to the back of the closet and pull forth combats and sisters of mercy "fuck me and marry me young" t-shirt huh? maybe i'll buy some black cargos.

Come on... some GAP Khakis and a GAP Hoodie would be the best... sure you'd stand out ... but think of all the people looking at you

Well, I Suggest you wear what you normally wear.

I would never dress-up to go somewhere... why change your "style" for a night..

good point. i will if i ever go.

i just have an instinct to try blend in though. more of a survival thing than a fashion thing.

i can't believe i'm even having this conversation. anybody who knows me knows that clothes are just about the last thing on my mind.

Well if you ever want to go, and I'm free ... drop me an ICQ or something


I'll get my Cargo pants out and my button up shirts and we're ready to go

Well, my friends and I take it as an opportunity to "go a step further" and do crazy hair and make-up stuff, wear lots of shiny/UV-reactive clothing and accessories...but by all means, no one else has to do that.
I just came back from England and was quite inspired by the "cybergoth" scene...too cool. We are so behind and deprived over here.


But like someone else said, don't change your style for one night if you're not comfortable. As I said, it attracts a wide variety of people...some of my friends are way more casual...they just wear phat pants and t-shirts, and I don't hold that against them.


I myself don't even wear jeans, and I wish I could dress the way I do for clubs more often, but I work in an office where they don't particularly care what I look like, but I can't go -that- far.

The one thing I don't understand is the "supergoths" in long-sleeved velvet dresses...it gets so hot in there, ugh.

Oh, and I forgot to ask...Alex, did you take lots of photos, and where will we be able to find them?

if the next one is labour day weekend then i'm going to have to choose between phryl and darkrave and odds are phryl is going to win.


we shall see, we shall see, darkrave has been on the "to do" list for over a year now. mayhaps the time has come?

Don't worry too much about your cloths all kinds of people go.

That said, props to the people that do wear the kick ass costumes.

Let the record show that there is no look sexier than goth/fetish. I came into the party scene 5 years ago through industrial music and i still miss the pure sexiness of the culture...

I've been to one Darkrave and i have to admit that it was quite a trip - lots of fun and I'd recommend it to most people! I wasn't quite sure how to take the kids wearing their Marilyn Manson shirts, fishnet stockings and spiked slave collars gnawing on soothers and passing around candy, but hey, i guess everyone goes through a transition phase right? While the music was fun and i even caught the odd moment of nostalgia as someone would drop Skinny Puppy or Project Pitchfork, I have to say that when I went the mixing abilities were a little rough - but that's just me being the picky, dj-type person i am today. As soon as i get my new mixer, I fully intend on pulling out some rough, industrial techno and making a mix to send their way.

All said, I say check it out if you're in the least interested. It was well worth my $!

I've always kinda wanted to go to one, but my major concern was that I'd find a bunch of people all sitting around thinking they're too cool to dance.

Is this at all the case, or am I just being paranoid?

Some people dress up for it, some are goth, some industrial, others more clubby. Me, I wore a loud hawaian shirt and nobody seemed to mind. I'd avoid pastels though.

And the women! Little skirts, long legs, high platforms, mesh stockings. Some of those goth girls are just plain yummy.

Not at all! I wish I could dance more actually, but it gets -really- packed...I like to have a bit more room, and a bit more air. And it gets disgustingly hot if you're in the middle of the dancefloor.

If you check out www.darkrave.com and click on "movies" you can see little videoclips my friends made.
