Four years… wicked!

gh nov 2013

I had no idea how big this thing would get. It’s remarkable. We are the little night that could…. could bring deathrock and goth and industrial to a town that didn’t have them before…. could entice people from 100 miles away to come dance with us…. could make connections with bands all across the northwest…. could be the first place that those folks who made it through high school and still love the aesthetic head for when they turn 21….

I am grateful for C. Bila’s willingness to help me out by being the lights/video guru that he is, and my best friend. [love you].

Very grateful for John The Revelator’s extensive knowledge and technical acumen, and the bitchin’ sets he plays. And Spidersound, who kinda fell into this but from whom you’ll be hearing more because we’ve adopted him.

So grateful to our guest DJs, especially Abulikah, Parabal, UNCRSD, Ghrimm, Ultrajet, Owen, Zahra, Ian…. all of you that have given us your time.

Especially grateful to the folks who keep coming and dancing! Amber, ParaDox, Paris, Hobby Knife, Star, Victor, An’gla, Sage, Sati  (the diehards) and MANY MANY MORE.

And the fantastic Oak Street crew, all of them have been great through the years. Mac, thank you for giving us a home.

DARK LOVE TO ALL OF YOU. And hope to see you Wednesday, November 6th.

❤ Refugium


Autumn, the most wonderful time of the year….

Many things are in the works. The next Ghost House, on October 2nd, will feature UNCRSD, who plays regularly at the Lovecraft in Portland. He will be spinning a mix of goth, industrial and witchhouse with an emphasis on new music. John The Revelator and Refugium will be on hand.

Here’s the Halloweek lineup:

Wednesday October 30th: 24 HOUR PARTY PEOPLE PARTY kicks it off at Oak Street Speakeasy. John The Revelator, Jon Smith, and Refugium will be playing all Factory Records tracks [New Order + Joy Division + Happy Mondays + Durutti Column +++++] and generally invoking the spirit of Manchester here in Eugene.

Thursday October 31st: DARKHALLOW Masquerade Ball. DJs Refugium from Ghost House, Spidersound from Nemesis, and Parabal from Rivet House are combining forces to bring you an occult warehouse party. Location will be revealed to ticketholders and on the website the day before the party- but it is within Eugene city limits. Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. A full bar including absinthe service will be available (cash preferred, Visa/MC accepted). Lights and projections will be tailored to the event, which promises to be a fantastic way to spend this evening. Costumes are required, and prizes will be awarded for the best of the best. Rumor has it that there will be an after party as well. 21 and over, ID is REQUIRED.

Shortly after that, on November 6th at Oak Street Speakeasy, Ghost House celebrates its 4th anniversary! We are so grateful that we have been able to keep a G/I night going in this fair city for four years, and each month brings new pleasures. We thank you from the bottom of our dark little hearts. Much love to all of you who have supported us through the years. What will the fourth year bring? It’s so exciting to find out!

Play for Today: a Cure Tribute

Hey you! Yes you, oh-ho, you the one that looks like Christmas, come over here and….

Saturday March 30th starting at 9 PM Luckey’s will be invaded by Cure fans. DJ Refugium, John The Revelator and Ultrajet will be pulling all of the rare vinyl from their various collections to bring you Cure songs you haven’t heard in years, probably, with excellent sound quality. Cure-related, side projects and other music of the era will also be played. VJ PTSD will provide a video wall of nonstop Cure footage culled from the past 30 years of concerts and promo releases. Spiky hair and lipstick very much encouraged. 

Luckey’s Club is located at 933 Olive Street in downtown Eugene. Cover is $2, 21+.
