|A Small Update Pertaining to Matters of the Club Known as Antichrist

...Which was where we went last night.
An excellent night. Having previously been the the Antichrist before (Sin), I was expecting miles and miles of winding staircases and confusing smoke-and-perv-filled corridors ready to punish my inappropriately high-heeled feet. The event is now held at Torture Garden, which is much easier to navigate, and slightly less full of pervs (big 'no wanking' signs on the front door :) ). There was, I recall, a naked man behind me at the bar, and I threatened his exposed member with a straight-from-the-fridge beer bottle - but 'twas all in good fun!
No bands this time sadly - very disappointing as I was expective to see XP8 again. I also missed most of the shows, except for the very skillful fire woman. Music was one of two main camps: Ear-Bleeding Industrial noise, and general goth/darkwave. 'twas the latter that got my attention, and lo and behold that of dozens of people I've met in various places. morbidfrog gave it large, with commendable gusto. seleroxand black666cat, Dr Dave, [info]marylittlegoth, Gentleman Jim and Maisey from the old Sticks crowd were there as were soozie, Tex and Simon from Luton (and of course Marna, J, Ben, Ash, the crazy pirate-loving girl from Bedford, green_dreads and krying4you, proving that, if any was needed, Luton and Basingstoke are now Goth-Twins, their inhabitants doomed to constantly run into eachother no matter which goth event they attend. I also met a very pretty girl and sometime acquaintance who no longer comes to Coven, who seemed quite approachable, but fell foul to my lack of communicative skills. Can't win 'em all, eh?
Oh and Paul, I met two of your security guard mates there :) Small world!
