15 Apr 1997 We're currently working on the Austin Guide for Goths (AKA Austin by Candelight) which will detail all of the best places for shopping, dancing, coffee drinking and hanging out. Right now we have a pretty active net.goth scene, probably 40 regulars. There are two mailing lists available, swgoths (for all of TX, OK, NM and some from AZ and LA), and the recently created ausgoths for austin events. Generally speaking, we have parties most every Friday night and we go to one of the local Industrial/Gothic clubs on Saturdays. Monday nights find us together at the home of a local gothic patriarch, and Tuesday nights we go to various and sundry coffeehouses. Feel free to email me for more information. The best, first step for getting involved in the scene is to join the SWGOTHS mailing list, seeswgoths.org
and/or to join the ausgoths mailing list (email email@example.com with the message body: subscribe ausgoths)klaatu:
10 Apr 1997 Lessee - you'll _like_ Austin, as long as you make sure that your place has air-conditioning. Otherwise it's essentially hellish during the summer months. Not quite so bad as Houston tho'... Lessee things to do in Austin - 6th Street. From Capitol Street to the Freeway, 6th Street lives up to the reputation as the Live Music Capital of the World. Friday nights is like a Mardi Gras, especially in mid-spring when college lets out. There's a definite scene there, you can probably find your way into it by hanging out on the Drag, which is if I remember rightly Guadalupe Street. At any rate, it's the main North-South drag right by the University of Texas-Austin, and there's quite a crowd of folks up there ranging from homeless winos to assorted street urchins, etc. and when I was there they had a fairly large gothic presence on the streets. Austin is a very cool mostly laid-back happenin' kind of place, basically much too Texas for me to stand for too long but for sure a great place to winter over and you can have a great time if you have even a little bit of money - but in all fairness I have to warn you that housing is outrageously expensive in terms of what you get for what you pay.
24 Dec 1996 The Church is held at The Lizard Lounge on Thursday's and Sunday's from 10pm-4am. It's in the International Goth Club Listing if you want an address and some info on it.Lizard
There's also the Lighthouse on Saturday's, but I haven't been there yet so I couldn't give you any details. For music, there are a few places...CD World, Pagan Rythms, Last Beat, RPM Records and a couple of others. For clothes, there's Moda, M. Zabel, and numerous small specialty shops scattered around Dallas.
Jul 22 1998 I don't know if you would consider Houston, Texas to be the midwest, but there is a Gothic coffeehouse here as well, called the "Mausoleum", on Richmond. They have one night(I think it is Sunday) where they have "Gothic fantasy circus."Memnoch703:
20 Apr 1998 Numbers has a goth crowd (Mostly highschool aged posers) But its a neet place to go. There is Club Morgana on Thurdays, It has a real cool gothic atmosphere but no one is ever there because they don't advertise. Then there is "Gothic Fantasy Circus" at the Mausoleum on Mon and Tuesdays. Right now its mainly Gothic perfomance Art (No real nudity) A friend and I Dj for it. We usuallly have a pretty good crowd and we're working clearing a dance floor. All we play is Gothic Music. Very little other stuff unless its good.The Lighthouse Keeper:
15 Apr 1998 There are a couple of other clubs in Houston that I know of that still exist and still cater to an alternative, maybe not GOTH, but alternative scene - The International Ballroom (I-Ball), The Abyss and there's a little punk bar called Emo's just outside of downtown that I LOVE. Also there's the little goth-y coffee house called the Masoleum. I forget exactly what street it's on... but I think it's Richmond. Pick up an issue of Public News at a local record store. All the listings for all the really decent clubs are in there. Better yet... if you want to hook up with one of Houston's LEAST pretentious and cool as shit Goths... go to the Sound Exchange on Westhiemer, the one next to the Soup N' Salad and across from Condom Sense... ask for Edward. He'll hook you up with information that Public News doesn't know about or deems too obscure to cover. Oh... and if you do... tell him Shannon misses him.Austin Govella:
09 Apr 1998 **FYI: Morgana @ Powertool every Thu. $5 @ door, $3 w/ flyer. 709 Franklin @ corner of Milam. Gothic & Darkwave by Dana Dark (the morgue, MIA records) & Industrial & electro by Leslie (plays in Wraith).**HeadPlMP:
5 Jan 1998 The Torture Garden is a weekly night featuring gothic, industrial, and darkwave music at the Cellar in Houston, Texas. The Cellar is now open 7 days a week (w/ a brand new full liquor license in effect, woo-hoo!). MON, WED, THU, & SAT are various mixes of industrial, electronic, retor, & coldwave w/ Bry & Will. Tue is gothic, industrial, and avant-garde w/ Pthalo.b.c.:
2 Oct 1996 try THE MORGUE (downtown, on Franklin st.) on thursday nights. other nights it's called POWER TOOLS. as far as cofee drinking goes, you can go to THE MAUSOLEUM (westheimer, near motrose) day or night. There used to be a gothic night at another club called 'black planet' and someone told me that it might soon be returning (which is a good thing. I liked it a WHOLE lot!). don't know if it's true though.
22 Jan 1998 In Salt Lake City we have had quite an array of Gothic bands stop in to perform, even when they were not currently touring. Salt Lake City has had a very active Gothic subculture and three clubs that tailor to us. Club Confetti, McCullough's and Bricks all have a steady Gothic crowd and influence. In addition, a new club will be opening their doors on Jan 24, 1998. This is also going to be a Gothic Haunt. There are also many more venues that are more than willing to book Gothic bands. At Club Confetti, Thursdays are Darkwave/80's. Fridays and Saturdays are reserved for Gothic and Industrial. McCullough's presents a Gothic night on Friday's and at Bricks the whole weekend is mainly Industrial/Ambient with Gothic mixed in. Fusion's line up will be, Thursdays: 80's/New Wave, Fridays and Saturdays: Industrial/Ambient/Gothic/Darkwave. In the line of clothes and accessories we have Blue Boutique, Garp's, Grunts and Postures, Dancing Crane (strictly for accessories), and a few other places if you have the perseverance to look. And of course (just like in every city in the world it seems) if you have to, you can go to the Hot Topics in any shopping mall. If you like lurking in coffee shops, we have one specifically catering to the Gothic subculture. Caffiends being it's name. Also a new restaurant/coffee house that just expanded is the Blue Cats. There are many other places that I could list in these categories, however they are not considered Gothic, just nice and amniotic.

14 May 1998 Friday: MachineWerks (members only, though), or maybe the Vogue (it's 80's wave night at the Vogue, but DJ Krass plays a fair amount of gothic and industrial stuff still, and some of the goth crowd is there) Saturday- The Catwalk (too techno for me lately but there are a lot of people there), and/or MachineWerks (you should be able to get a membership, don't remember how much the fee is) Sunday- MachineWerks (fetish night, kinda industrial), or the Vogue if you can't for some reason. I've heard the Fenix does something Sundays but I live at MachineWerks so know nothing about it. ^-^Uadjit:
5 Jun 1997 Experience downtown has nice pointy buckly boots and lots of vinyl. There's a Gargoyles in the U District. Fantays Unlimited is pricy but easy to find across from Pike Place Market. I'd give you more details but I don't live there anymore and I'm forgetting the little things, myself :)Christopher Fitzgerald:
4 Jun 1997 o Machine Werks: Really nice idustrial/gothic club. Over 21 until after 2:00am when you can sometimes get in. Usually Thursday through Sunday o Catwalk: Runs Industrial and Fetish nights over the weekends. General freaky place. Over 21 o Vogue: Goth night on Wednesday night. Pretty populated. Yep. Over 21 o Fenix (under and above): The definite venue for electronic goth and industrial music. If you are here around June 19th you can catch the Switchblade Symphony/Sunshine Blind concert (think there are still tickets left. Over 21 (see a pattern ... ?) o Bauhaus: Coffeehouse on Capital Hil (aka Broadway -- very liberal part of Seattle, good shopping). Gloomy atmosphere, good coffee and sort of mecca where dark critters hang out o Paradiso: Used to be THE place to hang out. Another coffee house that has been infested with other creepies. Still a nice place. o The Stranger: Local Newsmag that cators to the freaky and sexual. Actually, a wonderful listing of local events and shows. Pick one up as soon as you can (they can be found everywhere) o The Ave: Main street in the University District. Of note is Gargoyles, a very impressive and atmosphere store (which sells .. uh ... gargoyles, amongst other things). Also you might want to check out Experience for overpriced goth and club clothing. Also check out Grand Illusion for a quaint tea/coffee house that runs artsty movies (great little theater) o Other places ... hmm .. Fantasy Unlimited generally has a wide variety of bondage/sexual ware. They've kinda lost their lease so I don't really know where they are (I think in the back of a ... uh ... video store -- check the Stranger)Jester :
Sep 1996 ...the Fenix on 2nd and Jefferson.Matthew Allen:
14 Sep 1996 well if you do make it up here i can suggest two places to go (that i seem to be finding most of the stuff i have bought lately) .. the first is almost impossible to find open but it is an incredible store .. its on Olive in capital hill (just south of denny) and is called Ohm. and amazing selection of old school industrial, noise, weird ambient and idm stuff. his hours [supposedly] are from 12 to 7 tuesday through saturday ... but their have been times when i have gone and he hasnt been there (the reason i say he is that the store is owned and operated by one man with incredible tatse in music) ... the other recommendation for a store is wall of sound in belltown on second avenue ... their collection is more eclectic and not so much industrial based ... but i really belive that one time i went in there and they had every release by merzbow in stock .. every one ... cant go wrong with thatkirsti:
Wed, 29 Nov 1995 Wednesday: Gothic night at The Vogue - 2018 1st Friday: Industrial night at The Vogue Saturday: Fetish night at The Catwalk - corner of 2nd and Washington Sunday: Fetish night at The Vogue Gothic night at Cafe Perilous (aka Metropolis) - 2nd, just around the corner from the Catwalk (underattended, but my personal favorite) Also, stop by Gargoyles on University Way (aka the Ave) - lots of bizarre statuary, some jewelry and music.dj azrael: (also Mortlieb)
19 Dec 1995 roughly the last sunday of every month at the off-ramp cafe 628-0232: E L Y S I U M 9pm till 2am........ darkdance music spun by dj AZRAEL no coverVervaine:

Get ready to dance till ya drop. Inferno 1718 Commercial Ave. Madison, WI (info line) 608-245-9583BloodDoll:
21 Nov 1997 INFERNO is a dance club located in Madison, Wisconsin, and pulls in the finest DJs in the midwest to spin the best dance music in the state, from gothic to techno to industrial to retro...

The taps & rails special ends at 10:00pm sharp though, so get here early... On that note, by Wisconsin law you *must* be 21 to get in to INFERNO, and ID is *required*. Finally, INFERNO is located at 1718 Commercial Avenue, just off of Sherman Avenue. If you've got any other questions, the phone number is 608.245.9583.gnat:
15 Sep 1997 Tuesday nights is industrial and goth at the Cardinal. No cover except for their "fetish nights" on the second Tuesday of the month. It's located just east of the state capitol on E. Wilson. The Inferno is located at 1718 Commercial Avenue (out by the Oscar Mayer building). It features "more-goth-than-industrial" on Thursdays and "more-industrial-than-goth" on Fridays. Usually a $2 cover. And Saturdays people are found at dmf, 227 N. Randall Ave. No cover, features techno from 10p to 12a and goth/industrial from 12a to 2a. Best music IMHO, and the friendliest staffers. :) They have Lycia coming to perform a FREE live show on Oct 11, well recommended. The Mad-Goth mailing list is also provided through dmf, just a local email discussion arena.C-ko:
28 Nov 1995 Tuesday: Fetish night, with Goth/Industrial music at Cardinal Bar on E. Wilson St. Get there around 10 to hear gothy stuff. Free parking at lot across street. $2. Beyond that, State St. is a good place to hang, sitting and having coffee while watching people.
11 Mar 1997 Clubs: Mad Planet... call ahead tho'. Their Sat all ages night has usually a small goth set mixed in, and there are lots of blackclads there... this is the place where you go to gague how trendy goth is in milwaukee among the youngins... Sanctuary is a nice place, always 21+, always goth. I like it OK. Covers change, it's open all but Mon i think, but I haven't been there since Dec. so you'll prolly want to call. I noticed someone mentioned Metropolis. My experience with that place is that it is a complete meat market, and I saw no goths there. Coffee: Fuel, 2 blocks East of Mad Planet on Center Street. This is a _big_ hangout for freaks of all shapes and sizes... incl goth, punk, etc. Brady Street has a few places, but my experiences have been somewhat negative. Brewed awakenings is a really high school kin da place to go (at least when i've been there). I haven't been to Rochambo since they supposedly started serving drinks... Shopping: Changin' Times on Brady has a Hot Topic-esque assorment of goth clothes from those national brands. Also a big store for Doc's. Tie Me Down is supposedly where to get fetish gear... but I've found it rather overpriced. Atomic Records is one of the few places in town that carries Projekt and Cleo stuff, as well as rareties and b-sides. Cloves you can buy at Fuel Cafe, or at Edward's Tobacco, or at Changin' Times. That's about it, I guess... If you need anything else, let meknow.
