DJ Loki of Reliquary digs the dark jams every Saturday at Velocity 2303.

When it comes to goth nights here in the Valley, people seem to think that Club Palazzo's Friday-night freak fest Tranzylvania is the only ghoulish game in town. Turns out they're dead wrong, as popular GLBT hangout Velocity 2303, at 2303 East Indian School Road, has been putting on a Goth Night that's been attracting both the gay and straight crowd every Saturday night. Hosted by DJ Loki, the pasty and portly guitarist for local symphonic goth band Reliquary, the weekly shindig offers a seriously scary selection of dark dance music and other batcave jams, ranging from the Cocteau Twins, Siouxsie Sioux, and Sisters of Mercy to more postmodern acts like She Wants Revenge, Genitorturers, and Gitane Demone. Fittingly enough, DJ Loki will welcome in the yuletide season in spooky fashion with a Nightmare Before Christmas Party on Saturday, November 29. Bust out with your Jack Skellington T-shirt and apply plenty of guyliner, as Loki and DJ Dark Angel will be on the mixers all night long. The freaky fun starts at 9 p.m. and there's no cover.

Correction-Loki is the very wonderful DJ at Velocity. The night wouldn't be the same without Loki's talent. Paula O is actually the host. I believe the idea is hers and she works very hard to make sure things run smoothly.

Paula Olsen is the promoter and event coordinator for Goth Night @ Velocity.

The Nightmare Before Christmas event, as well as the club night itself, was conceived and put together by a beautifully wonderful woman in Phoenix. She approached the club to get the night going. She arranged for the DJ's. She takes time out of her day to create the atmosphere. She is the one who promotes it. She is the true angel who gave us this night. Without her, it wouldn't be happening. Not this Saturday or any Saturday.
