Goth Night

When: Friday/Saturday, though it skips around, usually weekly though depending on other events. 9PM-3:30AM
Where: Leland City Club
400 Bagley Street
Detroit, MI 48226
Observations: Detroit's oldest dark alternative nights running since 1983! Crowd and staff are friendly but professional. Has two very large sound systems on two very large dance-floors with different DJs each. Really more of an Emo night these days. Lighting in the back room is concert level, while the front room is a little less intense.
DJs: Jay Misenthropia, with various guest DJs.
Door Policy: 18+ - $10 if the front room is open $20 if both rooms are open. If you show up on a concert night I'm sorry.
Drinks: I don't drink, so I can't comment.
