Saturday, January 28, 2012 - 1:00 PM until 9:00 PM
Organized by the Ottawa Goth Syndicate, this will be Ottawa's first kind of "Gothic" weekend. While Ottawa has had the presence of a scene since the Goth movement began, never before have its numbers been so strong or the desire for more been present. Currently we have three nights a week available for bar/club-hopping: Tuesdays (Industrial Strength) at Zaphods, Thursdays (Happy Music for Sad People) at Swizzles, and Saturdays (Death Disco) at Swizzles. Unfortunately, beyond these nights and a shop called Trivium, our scene is left dreaming of far-away cities and how strong their communities are. The OGS is trying to change this, through creating this event and showcasing different aspects of the Gothic Subculture. Fashion, Music, Literature, Art, History and so much more will be showcased at this event.
Admission is $2 or free with Red Death Masquerade ticket stub. This is an All Ages event.
