Minor progress update

Venues, Potential, Past and New

Attempts at securing a suitable venue keep falling through. The main issue we have with Swansea venues is that there's nowhere with a bar past 1am, which is better than nothing I suppose, but the venues open till that late tend to be expensive. Looks like the only thing we'll be able to do as things stand is run a casual night until alcohol license laws in the UK change.

In other news, we've seen the rise and swift demise of "Headbangers Ball" in Barons, Swansea. The night was run by Nigel and Morgan from The Zone on Thursday nights, which had a reasonable injection of Goth music and old Zone favorites.

"Ritual" in Cardiff on the day before Halloween was a good success. Situated in Clwb Ifor Bach, it was a good mix of Goth and Rock, and it was packed, but do think twice about wearing very much because it gets very hot (there is a cloakroom). Allegedly the next one is Saturday 27th November, can anyone confirm that?

Finally our familiar haunt, Inquisition, will be in Gretzky's Bar in Cardiff Ice Rink this Saturday (20th November). See you there!
