*sigh*

Really really f*ckin' sorry to land this on people so last minute, but we've franctically been trying to sort out some alternative since we found this out yesterday evening. Basically we are unable to use Hex tonight for either After Dark or Midian. We've been trying to secure another venue, but with so little notice to work with this has proved impossible. The venue we were looking at hasn't been able to get back to us, and so we've had to take the decision to cancel for this evening.

Some work that needed to happen to Hex to extend their temporary licence (given after the refurb), has been unable to be completed on time.

I am so so gutted to have to give you guys this news, and sorry to mess everyone around.

Provisionally, myself and Jason are going to try to get across to the Swan this evening for a commiserations based drink. A goth invasion may be a fun idea, so if you'd like to join us, we'd love to see you.

We'll try to sort out something at least socially for December, and we shall return properly in the new year. Please stay tuned for updates as we have them.

Please pass on this info asap to anyone you know who may be planning to come along this evening.

Once again huge apologies.

Hot on the heels of our fabulous VNV Nation gig a few weeks back, we have the final After Dark and Midian clubnights of 2005 on Saturday 10th Dec (tomorrow). Rounding up the hugely entertaining and busy 2005 we have the following:

In the main room:

 After Dark

After Dark covers the best in dark party music.It tends to be more 'music that those goffs like' rather than a straight ahead goth night. It covers elements of dark indie, goth rock, riot grrl, sp00ky kid, old school industrial, new wave, goth and alternative, and anything and everything inbetween. After Dark is run in the upstairs bar of Hex which has 500+ capacity. There's a full dancefloor, lighting, smoke, as well as a bar, lots of seating and a pool table.

In the Black room:

Midian

 Midian is the long-standing Merseyside goth night. It covers goth both old and new, industrial, darkwave, EBM, electro, dark 80's, batcave, post punk, and other such gems. Midian is held in the black room (100+ capacity) at Hex, which has it's own bar, dancefloor, lighting and smoke

Working in both rooms we have the best in alternative music from our DJs:

 Guest DJ Siobhan- DJ Transient 2 Deviant (Catacombs, Carnival of souls)

 Simon- DJ Psychomagnet (After Dark, Midian)

 Yanni-DJ Yanni Oblivion (After Dark, Dantes' Inferno)

 Gaynor-DJ sistercarrion (After dark, Midian, Carrion Screaming)

 ----------------------

Hex is now refurbished after their recent fire, and we'd like to thank all involved in getting the place back up and running so quickly.

Doors open: 9pm-2am

Door fee: £2 b4 10pm/£4 after

Hex is well situated for local transport links, being less than 5 minutes from Birkenhead Central train station, Birkenhead bus station, Liverpool tunnel and taxi ranks. More details can be found on our website. Hex, 3-5 Thomas Street, Birkenhead Merseyside CH41 5DD

Can we take this opportunity to thank all those who have joined us at our nights and events throughout 2005, friends both old and new. Cheers all, and here's to 2006!!

Don't forget folks! The VNV Nation/[S.I.T.D] gig is imminent.. and
time is running short to buy advance tickets.

This is looking to be a fantastic gig. On Wednesday 23rd November we
have two of the biggest names on the scene playing for us on the
first date of their UK 'Formation' tour, in a rare opportunity to
see them up close and personal.

This is the official relaunch of the Hex venue, revamped,
redecorated, and re-equipped after the fire. As well as the live
music, we have the gorgeous DJ Miss616 of 616 Abortions/ Dark-cide/
Electro-cide fame providing us with dancefloor fillers between and
after bands until 2am. We also have supporting artistes in the form
of the excellent cage dancers courtesy of Poison Arts.

Don't miss out on this rare event for the area.

There are tickets still available from the places below:

In person from myself or Jason (no booking fee)
Bad Ass Boutique in Quiggins, Liverpool (with a booking fee)
The Hex website at: http://hexrock.com (small postal charge)
From Music Non Stop at: http://www.musicnonstop.co.uk (£2 extra
booking fee)
The Midian website at: http://midian.org.uk (with a small postal
charge)

Unfortunately we are unable to reserve any advance tickets that
haven't been paid for, due to the high demand for tickets. We advise
that people buy tickets in advance of the gig in order to avoid
disapointment. They're cheaper in advance too!

Ticket price in advance is £12 (plus booking fee in some areas)
Tickets on the door if still avaiable will be £14 (no concessions)

Righto *deep breath*

FRIDAY 18th NOVEMBER
I'm gutted to have to announce the following. Due to a slight unavoidable delay in finalising the refurb of the Hex venue, and the resulting legal paperwork that this entails, Hex have asked that we cancel our After Dark/Midian night that was to be happening on the 18th of this month. This means that unfortunately we are also having to cancel the Devilish Presley/Screaming Banshee Aircrew/Zombina and the Skeletones/All Gone Dead gig that was to be happening on that date. There will be no main After dark and Midian night for the evening of the 18th Nov.

Obviously we will be doing our best to get these bands back playing for you guys at some point. I, for one was really looking forward to this line-up :( WE WILL be back for a full After Dark/Midian date on Sat Dec 10th @ Hex. We thank all our regulars and the bands and DJs involved for their patience with us through this time. Also...

WEDNESDAY 23rd NOVEMBER
HEX WILL BE OPEN IN TIME FOR VNV NATION/[S.I.T.D] on the 23rd Nov.
Hex will be relaunching fully on the evening of the 23rd, with a fantastic show from [sitd] and of course headlining we have VNV Nation. We also have DJ support from Miss616, from the fabulous Dark-cide and Electrocide nights. Additionally there will be cage dancers courtesy of Poison Arts
( http:www.poisonarts.co.uk )
There are still a few tickets available. The London stage of this tour has now sold out, and the rest of the tour is selling fast, so get them while you can.

Tickets in advance are £12
They are available (with a small booking fee) from the following places:
In person from myself or Jason (without a booking fee)
From the Hex website at: http://www.hexrock.com
From the Midian website at: http://midian.org.uk
From Music Non Stop at: http://www.musicnonstop.co.uk
From Bad Ass boutique in Quiggins in Liverpool

Tickets (if there are any left) will be £14 on the door, so it's well worth getting yours in advance if you're planning to go.

Going through music I've got specially planned for tomorrow night, i'm getting all excited. There's some fun tunes i've got planned :) I also have yet to check out the new Stromkern advance album that arrived yesterday. If anything is suitable, I may end up playing some of that too..

*bounce*

sistercarrion: (Carrion)

.. all you lovely boi and ghoulfiends out there ;)
Apologies, just getting in the mood for Hallowe'en at the end of
this month. Gotta' love all the cheesy goodness in the shops right
now.

Aaannnyways, after the fabulousness of last weeks all-day stormer,
we give you more, yes more, ladies and gents. As you may or may not
know, next Saturday night (8th) is our next After Dark/Midian

outing. We're being joined especially this month by our good friend
John(DJ Aesthetik) alongside our usual nutters..

So.. get your requests in early! You have more likelyhood of your
chosen track being played on the evening, if we know about it in
advance. Please also state which room you'd like to hear it played
in (details about what each room plays to be found on the homepage
of this 'ere board).. what would you like to boogie to and where
people?

In addition, we have a few wee prizes left over from last weeks'
raffle that we'll be raffling off, alongside a ticket for our VNV/
[:sitd:], again in aid of the Jenny BICA trust. I know a few of you
have expressed an interest in contributing towards the fund, who
weren't there at the all-dayer, so here's your chance!

Jason will also have VNV tickets available for those who aren't
lucky enough to win in the raffle. These are going fast, this will
be one of the last few opportunities to buy them from us in person,
without a booking fee. Only £12 each folks!

Looks like John will be joining us on DJing duties for the upcoming After Dark/Midian date on Oct 8th. Good good.

Can I encourage all who be regulars and enjoy it to tell a pal about us, or bring along someone who may not have been for a while? Pass on the good news, as it were.. Due to the fact that we now have to hire the venue, we have been running on tight margins recently. We don't look to the night to make that much, just enough so that we can feed it back into the night, as we do with all our profits. We've had to put up the costs by a measly pound this month for this reason, so the door fee is now £2 before 10pm, and £4 after.. which i'm sure you'll agree is still a bargain for 2 floors!

Anyhoo.. can i also remind all those who haven't as yet got a VNV Nation/ [:SITD:] ticket, but who are planning to come along, that time is creeping up fast to the Nov 23rd, and tickets are selling at a steady pace. You can get them in person from us at the next After Dark/Midian on Oct 8th, with no booking fee.. or of course from Music Non Stop (with a booking fee), and Bad Ass Boutique in Liverpool..

Hi all,
I'm a nosy bugger, and would love to see any reviews that came out of the charity all-dayer from this past weekend. If anyone could point me in the direction of any that are about.. I'd be very grateful..

As i didn't manage to catch many piccies myself, I'm also on the lookout for any footage, either moving images or stills. We can put them up on the Midian website with full credits if anyone would be up for that..

Cheers all

Whee! Thanks to Sophies' fab mum, we have a lovely piece written about the forthcoming charity all-dayer on Sunday, in the entertainment section of the Wirral News. There should be a few other bits and bobs popping up elsewhere too..

Anyone who's still willing to donate goodies to the above cause, is asked to send it to us asap ;) Cheers for all those who have donated so far, you're all stars.

sistercarrion(at)midian(dot)org(dot)uk

Busy morning, with a flurry of phonecalls and emails.. but i love this bit :)

 

sistercarrion: (Carrion)

Can i refer you all to this post ? I'm after as many goodies as we can possibly sort out for a monster raffle for our charity all dayer.. If you've stickers, lighters, badges, novelty knickers (not worn!), promos, t-shirts cluttering up the place that you'd like to donate.. then please drop me a line asap. It's for a great cause, and anyone generous enough to help us out will get a credit..

'Lo all...

As part of our charity goth all-dayer on the 25th of this month, we'll be doing a biiigg raffle to try to raise some serious cash for the trust involved. This will be at the ace Hex venue in Birkenhead on the Wirral

More info about the trust that we're supporting at this event )



Sooo I'm basically looking for some items from labels, bands, nightclubs/events etc that would be suitable. The more unusual/bizarre the better! Anything from stickers, keyrings, bottle-openers, lighters, to t-shirts, cds, tickets.. anything really. The only real privisos being that the item needs to be new, and sent to us rather quickly ;)
If peeps can get things to us quickly, we can namecheck all those who donate to us, and your help would be very much appreciated!
Any items can be sent via: sistercarrion
c/o Flat 1, 15 James Street, Prenton, Birkenhead, Merseyside, UK CH43 5RD

Quick note just to say hi and thanks to all who pottered along to see us last night. All the guests & Yanni of course did a sterling job, i was really impressed, cheers guys :)

A fantastic night for our first joint After Dark and Midian venture. It was so good to have the whole 600+ capacity  venue to ourselves, and it bodes really well for future events..

Due to the relaunch, we're looking to update our list of bods who'd be willing to distribute some flyers for us. If you could pass on 20 or more flyers then please please get in touch. I'm looking to especially distribute some around unis once they come back, other nights, pubs, alternative shops etc etc.

We also love cross-promoting other events, bands, nights, shops, gigs and venues. If you'd like to send us some of your flyers in exchange, we'd love to distribute them around the northwest of England area, and at our nights and gigs.

Please contact myself at: sistercarrion(at)midian(dot)co(dot)uk with your snaily mail if you'd be interested in helping out...
