For years there it seemed that there was very little fun going on in Cincinnati nightlife. That has all changed:

Jacob's has a kick ass 80s night every Friday with more hopping nights popping up as monthly and every-other-week events.

Plush has come into its own, our favorite night there is a monthly called "Boys & Girls" usually the last Saturday of the month. The DJ duo Boy Radio spin Brit-Beat, Indie, Glam, Mod, 60's & local music. After bringing you a hot local or regional (sometimes far traveling) band.

The Southgate House has really filled the void needed for AMAZING shows from up-and-coming and under rated bands. A good example is tonight: The Raveonettes are playing.

So, no more complaining about 'ol conservative Cincinnati Smile

Once we get it going really solid here, we may take it on the road... We've had someone in Chicago say they were interested.

We do take requests, so if you let us know your favorite Celtic-Dark-Wave-Jungle-Trance-Punjabi-House artist we'll mix it into some Japanese-Vis-Swing-Breakbeat.

We're just trying to get someone to come visit us for a change Wink

Zazoo and Satori-
I left you a loving and warm post on your livejournal regarding Clusterf*ck. I want to thank you for all of the hard work and thought you put into your nights. You both have made me drag my old carcass out of the house once a month and I will miss it. I know you will still do special events (hopefully no more "All Jackson" and "All Madonna" parties Wink, I know you cannot take the blame for those) and I cannot wait to see what you come up with for furture events.
I know I'm being all mushy on a public forum, but you're worth it. weed
Thanks! There were about 5 people who came to EVERY ONE, and stayed pretty much ALL NIGHT and you were one of them, and we really appreciate it!

Oh, we're not going dark. As a sneak peek, we're going to have a "Music of Prince" night at the end of August. Prince, all his Protegees (yes,Sheila E counts)the songs he wrote for others etc.

And we're going to have an Electo VS New Wave night coming up not long after that.

AND, on Friday night when we went down early to hang posters etc., a guy just HAPPENED to call Jacob's looking for us. His name is Sergio and he's with the company promoting the Klaus Nomi DVD. Apparently it also has extra NEW remixes of his songs.

It releases June 14th and they wanted us to do a party around then. Brian is also a HUGE Klaus Nomi fan, so we're thinking of doing it on a Friday. That way we'll have a captive & receptive audience Smile

The release kit is on the way. We should get together for a pre-view party when it comes in Smile
