A night with the goths - Mondlicht

I never seem to post anymore about my activities on the week-end as I used to do in my Livejournal days (for those reading this on Livejournal, I'm posting to Dreamwidth these days, some get reposted to LJ). The natural progression of getting a bit older and less keen or able to take on all-nighters may be part of it, as is the fact that I always have things to do on a Sunday which means that, wherever I am by 1:00 am on a Saturday night I'm beginning to think I should be trying to catch up on sleep (which, again, seems to get progressively more difficult). I do go to a lot of club nights, birthday parties and the like but I never seem to stay more than two hours, three at the most. Last night was an exception at Mondlicht, a quarterly-what to call it? post-punk? goth? night in the basement of the Albany pub in Gt Portland St. Dancing and catching up with peeps in a settng where dancing is sort of natural and catching up is doable as the sound levels although loud do not make impossible to talk. First time I stay till closing time in quite a while.

I'm on Dreamwidth at -do follow me there if you can.
