I'm sad to say that CANS Venue & Lounge will be no longer starting January 2019. Gone too soon, and was needed badly in our community as a space for musicians, weirdos and curious attendees. This will be our last RITUAL at Cans. We recently moved this night and losing what I felt was a literally perfect spot for this night definitely stings. We will be skipping the month of January while I regroup as to where we will go from here. Come out next Friday the 21st. DJ’s Plastic Disease & // MIJITO //, no cover.

Last week was very special to me. After 2 years since our last show, we played as Alter Der Ruine.
The energy felt of anticipation, both from us and everyone that attended. I felt everything open up as the night started, and it only kept pushing from there.
For me, there was a bit of awkwardness at first. Mainly because I was tapping into something primal and emotional that had not been tapped into for some time.
After the first few notes those awkward feelings swept away, like a wave of relief knowing that I was finally in this place again.
We were joined by Randall Swindell (SWINDY, Ensphere, The Shift) who provided a whole new element to our live experience with bass, guitar, and additional keys. In my opinion this was the best we have ever sounded live.
Huge thank you to everyone involved in making this happen. Cans (which will soon be no longer), NOT BREATHING, & Tree’s Speak, DJ // MIJITO //, and everyone that attended, traveled, and brought your incredible energy.
Things have been so crazy that I haven’t been able to post yet about winning 3rd place in the best DJ category this year for Best of Tucson! (Tucson Weekly)
This is my third year nominated and first year making it into the top 3. I want to give a huge thanks to everyone that voted for me!
In the time that I have been paying attention to the best dj category I have never seen a woman nominated, and in my case coming from the alternative scene I never imaged to make it up to the top 3. Coming from where I started something like this always seemed out of reach being in counter culture. I’m so happy to see that people have embraced events and music that is different from the norm. Thank you TUCSON! 🖤🔥

I'm pleased to announce that I am putting together another GOTH CLOTHING EXCHANGE on Sunday July 1st, this time at a new location for us at SKY BAR on 4th avenue! During our past events we have badly needed additional space, this venue will give us all the space we need plus a full bar for 21+, and coffee, tea and soda for guests under 21. Brooklyn Pizza Company is located right next door and will deliver to Sky Bar.
Bring your gently used clothing and accessories to sell or trade and meet other goth fashion enthusiasts in your local area. If you don't have anything to sell/trade just come down and browse all the dark fashions! DJ VAMP FELINE will be providing the soundtrack accompanied by classic movie horror on the projectors!
(the venue is ALL AGES until 4pm, after that you must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.)
If you are bringing items to SELL/TRADE:
- You are 100% responsible for your items, pricing them, providing change/keeping track of your money.
- We will have a limited amount of tables. If you have a rolling rack of your own portable table we suggest bringing them for your setup. Please keep your setup looking nice and not too spread out if possible to leave room for others. Please respond in the top thread on the Facebook event page HERE and let us know if you plan on selling so we know around how much space we need.
- Please be realistic about the pricing of your items!
- If you have any questions please feel free to ask in the event page discussion.
Thank you so much to everyone that came out to see my live set at HOCO FEST. And huge thanks to the club congress / Hotel Congress staff for being so welcoming and professional (as always!). And huge props and thanks to Flip Your Wig / JALPH 🌹🌹
That was my 3rd ever solo live performance and I'm really excited to see how it is unfolding. I have some music coming out soon as well as a few remixes before the end of the year. Thank you everyone for your support!
