Final ResurrectioN Takes Place Tonight as Industrial/Goth Haven Palazzo is Closing

The Valley's collection of goth and industrial fans are no strangers to drama when it comes to their favorite dance nights and clubs. In fact, if there's been any constants to this particular scene over the decades, its been change. Not to mention a never-say-die attitude.

Places tend to come and go in this scene -- including the O.G. version of the Nile Theatre or the old Atomic Cafe in Scottsdale - as do events like Black Coffee, Sadisco*, and Tranzylvania. But DJs and promoters tend to carry on and launch new joints. For instance, this past year may have be seen both Sanctum and Monsterland biting the dust, but it also included DJs Self.Destrukt and Defense.Mekanizm starting the aptly titled RessurectioN at longtime goth hangout Palazzo.

Then came this past week, when word broke about the ending of both the night and its venue.
