NIGHT SH IFT
A Dark, Alternative Affair

SUNDAY MAY 26th


There's a swanky lounge, a big dance floor and an amazing sound system so you and a few hundred of your friends can get down to business. Be sure to spread the word, with a club this big, we've got room for everyone!

Dress to express your nocturnal side. Celebrate the Night! We encourage you to get fancy and dress to the nines! Corporate Goth, Posh Rivet, Cyber Chic, or Swanky Steampunk. Whatever your look, Night Shift is the place to make your mark after dark, the place to see and be "scene"!

The evenings festivities will be presided over by  the man with the mic...MC Kangal

Goth, Death Rock & Dark Wave  provided by D Js Shade & Nekromantra

Afterwards Amber Dionne will be hosting a Steampunk Walk and Lantern Lighting Ceremony starting at 2:30 until 5:30; consequently, the picnic will only be from 12:30pm until 2:30, but she ensured that we are free to "crash" her walk with our combined elegance and make it a grand old time!

Instead of Just Arbitrarily Making Stuff...
I'd like to know what YOU want for your Winter Holiday this year! :D

What kinds of art, beaded jewelry, polymer clay, felt creations, or other crafty concoctions would people like to see for the holidays?
..A gaunt & grinning goblin, masquerading as old Saint Nick maybe? Or a faerie gala, gleefully gathered 'round a bountiful feast perhaps? Seomthing delightful yet ghoulish, with everything from veggies to sundry severed parts; like the remains of fool-hardy human to fickle, feathered foul..?

What do YOU seek to give or receive over the holidays..?
