On Saturday night, the long awaited for event came into being. I'm talking about the Darkness Resurrected Premier Night, which took place at the Stolen Glass Club near the Fayetteville Square. The special occasion, which was organized by DJ Durandal, featured the musical talents of End: The DJ, D.J. Parasight and DJ Axis as well as his own.
The Stolen Glass, which hosted the affair, turned out to be a very nice club in which to hold a dance night. It had a decent stage and an adequately sized dance floor. There was plenty of room to socialize and move around in as well as a free pool table. I played a couple of games on it myself. As a non smoker, I was a bit concerned that I might be overwhelmed by cigarette smoke, but since the venue seemed well ventilated and contains a very high ceiling, I really wasn't bothered at all.
Truth be told, I think the night was a total blast. The music went non stop from about 9:00 pm until around 2:30 am; and although the DJs played a lot of electronic, there was enough Goth and dark wave offered to keep me interested--and dancing! As a matter of fact, by night's end I was the proud owner of a couple of seriously sore feet; but it was all worth it.
Although the venue wasn't really crowded, a lively group of people showed up and all seemed to have a good time. Speaking for myself, I was really glad to see something like this finally happen. I was very pleased to make new acquaintances and to visit with some older ones as well.
Word has it that there may be another Darkness Resurrected event in a couple of months . I'm looking forward to it and I'd like to thank DJ Durandal, the guest DJs, the folks at the Stolen Glass and everyone who showed up for contributing to such an awesome night.
