One drummer and one roommate needed
So I live in East Falls, PA (It is near Fairmount and Manayunk) and live in a house with two band members. We have a unique goth/rock sound that includes vocals with distortion and dark themes, viola, bass guitar and piano/synthesizer.

Two things:

One: We are in need of more band members, preferably percussion/drums. Drum set, timpani, electric drums, conga, box drum all acceptable. Other percussionists and instruments are welcome to apply. Maybe violin, guitar, saxophone etc...

Two: We are in need of a fourth housemate to help with the rent. You would have your own private bedroom on the second floor for about $400 a month (including utilities and internet) but you would have to be a non-smoker, a pet lover, not eat red meat and preferably be a vegetarian, and OK with lots of music being played, including one night of band practice a week, and daily or nightly classical piano practice. And be LGBT (gay, lesbian, bi, or trans) or open and accepting of those who are.

Please contact me with any questions.

Dracula's Ball October 31st, 2011 with The Last Dance, Psyche Corporation, DJ Addam Bombb, MORE!


The next Dracula's Ball event takes place on Monday, October 31st, 2011 and includes live performances by The Last Dance (*exclusive East Coast show*) and Psyche Corporation as well as DJs Addam Bombb and other guests. 3 dancefloors of non-stop music!

Tickets are $16 in advance. All ages are welcome. If you want to drink alcohol, you must be 21+ w/photo ID. Admission at the door will be $18. Tickets are on sale now.

Advance tickets can be purchased *in person* from Ticketmaster or Digital Ferret, or *online* from Ticketmaster or IsoTank. Those with advance tickets are admitted first, before those paying at the door.

Dracula's Ball takes place at Shampoo Nightclub in Philadelphia, on Willow Street between 7th and 8th Streets. The club has a large enclosed parking lot which is free, but it does fill up early during Ball events. Doors open at 9pm and the event ends at 2am. In addition to live bands and DJs, there are vendors, candy and door prizes. The official DB website can be found at: http://www.draculasball.com/

PSYCHE CORPORATION: Psyche Corporation is an alloy. One part darkwave fairytale, one part cyberpunk celebration of all things godly and machine. Cellos and guitars provide an angelic element while the keyboards and sensual, edgy vocals suggest something...a bit more earthly (or earthy, if you prefer). Besides a bewitching live show, Psyche Corporation has an entire world of their own - check their website.
STAGE TIME - 10:35pm

THE LAST DANCE: **EXCLUSIVE EAST COAST SHOW!** It's been several years since we've hosted this outstanding California band at Dracula's Ball and we thought that Halloween would be the perfect time to fly them here for an exclusive show. Passionate and melodic male vocals, dark danceable synth sounds and goth-rock rhythm and guitars give The Last Dance an intoxicating sound that still rocks your socks off.
STAGE TIME - 12:05am

Hope this is okay. Figured a music comm would be a good place to ask this.

I'm trying to help some friends find a DJ for their Philadelphia wedding next year. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations, whether personal or hearsay. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks =)

Want a table? May 22nd ...
On May 22nd, there's a Punk Rock Flea Market in Philly ... the club across the street (Starlight .aka. Club Polaris 452-472 N 9th St, 19123) is opening during the flea market so the buyers can use their bathroom, ATM, and get food. The owner is letting me put up a table in their place (the flea market tables are sold out) and he said I could rent 29 more tables in the club to other vendors ... contact me, if you want a table.

The next Dracula's Ball event takes place on Saturday, October 30th and includes live performances by Seraphim Shock and Celldweller as well as three DJs spinning in three separate rooms. All ages are welcome. If you want to drink alcohol, you must be 21+ w/photo ID. Tickets are $16 and are on sale now at Ticketmaster (in person or online), IsoTank.com and Digital Ferret CDs. Our Halloween event has sold out for many years running.... As such, we recommend advance tickets in the strongest possible terms. Every year we turn away several hundred people who want to attend but did not purchase tickets.

Costumes are encouraged but not required. Although this is our Halloween event, please note that it takes place on Saturday the 30th of October. Of course, a few hours after we open, midnight will roll around and we'll kick off the official start of Halloween!

The club has a large enclosed parking lot which is free, but it does fill up early during Ball events. Doors open at 9pm and the event ends at 2am.
