Have you heard of Bassnectar before?  They're Dj's out of San Francisco, but they tour and are INCREDIBLE.  They bring their own go-go dancers with them, and everything is uv.  They've got these trippy air wind sock things too that just add to the experience in an incredible way.  Not tho mention they are HAWT!

ONe of their big 'hits' was the one that went *a belly donsah - a snake chahmah*  Rachel Brice danced to it.  lol I can't remember any more to it though. 

http://www.bassnectar.net/homebase.html

Here's their myspace profile as well...

adding that STS9 Bassnectar Remix (the last track on their profile is STELLAR)

I'm gonna tell my son to join a circus so that death is cheap
And games are just another way of life

Because for every truth there are half a million lies
And I'm gonna lock my son up in a tower
Till he learns to let his hair down far enough to climb outside.

I hadn't, so thank you for the link! I'm an EBM/Industrial nerd mostly, but I'll check out pretty much anything.

Also clubs tend to actively work towards creating particular atmospheres, which could help.  For example, there's a gay nightclub in London I went to a few times, and everytime thought 'if I were going to shoot a vampire movie, I would use this as a scene.'

Funny, sometimes when I went out I thought about staking people through the heart too!  Cheesy

But seriously, you're right about the atmosphere. I mean, say you walked into a Fetish Club and everything was like, lavender with frills? Yeah. Not gonna happen.

And randomly... A gay techno-y vampire movie would be fun. (I think the only gay vampire movie I've seen to date was Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter which had a sinister vampire cult turning all the world's lesbians and only Jesus could save them! Fun stuff. Interview doesn't count - all sexual tension and no payoff. God, just make out already! Anyway.)

I did actually write the first chapter for a story set in London, naturally featuring said club.  I don't think it went techno at any moment, although the vampires in question did swap club cultures a lot.  I stopped writing it when I realised how long it would be, for something I didn't intend to publish, nor could publish.  Managed to hook a few readers on the first chapter though.

Clubbing. Pounding bass, throbbing strobes, and jacked-up drink prices... ooh. Sacred.

You might like this guy too, his name is Bart, and his stage name, "Extus"  He's got a much deeper, earthier vibe to him, although he makes much less use of the bass and distort than Bassnectar.

http://www.myspace.com/bassnectar

He kind of has an Eastern feel to some of his music - which I think is a flow through of his girlfriend, who is this very serious down to earth little dark haired beauty.  His personality comes through so strongly in his music that it's almost hard to trip to without feeling more of him than you mean to.

I'm not sure if I qualify as a Set kid since I've only encountered him a few times. (Although I did spend an awul lot of time drawing him in leisure suits... *cough*)

Aww, too bad for us.

Heh. "I'm feeling you up through your music!"
I'll check him out. Thanks again!

My bad - but it is an identical mindset - and Big Red has a way of influencing people's likes and behaviors.  Tongue

*Laughs at the leisure suit idea*

He also likes sequins quite a bit. Just saying.  Grin

Oh, I don't mind being mistaken for a Set-kid. You guys seem like my kinda people, you know?

And I will bear the sequins in mind, although I think they might be hard to do in black and white.

I'd be mighty surprised if Violentsound didn't turn out to belong to some shit-disturbing deity, but I don't know whether it'll be that one.  Not saying I think it won't be (I agree that there are some signs that appear to point that way), just keeping things opened up.

ditto, ditto, ditto. (except for the overpriced drinks. Cheap drunk talking here.) I *hate* loud high and midrange sounds, but bass ... lay it on me!

I tend to go for the natural version: raging thunderstorms. I once went for a walk in a storm just to listen. People look at me like I'm nuts when I say I love the sound of thunder.

Oddly, the quiet of falling snow has exactly the same effect.  Huh

And also, the dark. When I'm in pitch-black, can't-see-my-hand-in-front-of-my-face dark, I always feel safe and comfortable. Which is weird, because shadowy areas often creep me the hell out.

Well, the Morrigan is pretty much the one with a permanent claim to my ass, but she does share me sometimes. So who knows?

She's something of a shit-disturber herself, and, while not a Trickster in the conventional sense, has some qualities that could be considered Tricksterish, so that could be it right there.
