anatomystery asked: Hi, I see that you live in NYC. I just moved here myself and I've been having a little trouble with finding places to have fun at for dark eerie or metal heads. If you would be so kind as to pointing me in the right direction?
Hi, welcome to NYC. I’ve in Brooklyn since 2001 and have seen many great dark places have their doors closed (the raven, wierd, flamingo east, mars bar… so many more!). In fact, the scene has changed so much and I’ve gotten old- I don’t go out very much any more except to see big shows or have drinks at my local punk bar [I’m 30 and have gone into punk rock retirement]. I don’t know much about the metal scene here, but my favorite deathrock thing is Red Party run by Sean Templar. If you like deathly art there is a great thing in Brooklyn called Morbid Anatomy, and it’s a nice place to meet people. Have you been to Gothic Renaissance or Trash & Vaudeville? These are two alternative stores, I used to work at both, and they have fliers about what’s going on in NYC each week. Bars: Otto’s shrunken head, Double Down Saloon. And always check the back of the Village Voice!
I used to care,
