There weren't a lot of people and in general there was a good atmosphere! There were some elders [not elder Goths, there is no such thing where I live] that had fun as they said and some random people that stopped by to rest from the lower hall [NuMetal and Dubstep, yay...] that seemed to enjoy the gloomy, dark and rythmic atmosphere we created.
Fun fact: people like to dance to known and well overrated almost poppy songs, whereas when something energetic but new is played, they rather sit in the corner and wait. Why, people? Why? I mean, if it's something new doesn't mean you have to close your minds to it, open up! We played here and there less known artists such as Neva, The Names and others and people were confused. Very very strange for me.
I have to admit that I was disappointed. You see, people that come to Dark 80's parties are mostly over 30 and the only reason they come there, what seemed to be, of nostalgia. What I felt from observing the, and my conclusions after that wild night, is that people less want to open up to new things from the genre they love, but it is to hop around to catchy songs of Bowie and Joy Division, which are beautiful as they are, but perhaps somewhere overdone....
I also got really mad [I always get mad at stupid things that only I care about] that none of the people me and Boris know showed. Not our best friend who lived upon 80's music stating he had no chance to change his shift that night, not other people who could show up and had the cars/ money to get there and support, didn't.
I got upset, but I knew it was foolish of me, hence me and Boris always support every little artsy fartsy things that anyone is doing in our city, even if it's not even music we usually listen to, we still come and support the artist or the person organizing something because we feel it's important to show presence at little alternative events in out tiny country, because there is so little of everything, not to mention people within the [nonexistent] Goth subculture.
But in the end, fuck everything, I say. it was a party for me and Boris anyways.
I can proudly say that I customized Boris' shirt myself ^^
