It's time to bust out the black eyeliner and hair dye. Regardless of whether you own a fully equipped sex dungeon or just love to rock a black T-shirt and army boots, all levels of goth, macabre, and sadism are welcome at Goth Prom. Now in its eighth year, this party is filled with steampunk-inspired eye-candy, leather-wear exhibitionists, and lovers of dark culture. The dance floor will seduce partiers with DJ sets featuring industrial, metal, and darkwave sounds. If the main room gets to be a little intense, pop over to the side room for some pool and happy techno pop, or share a cigarette with a mysterious stranger on the patio. In addition to giving away prizes from stores like Smitten Kitten and Eye of Horus, organizers will be collecting donations for the National Marrow Donor Program. 18+.
Mon., May 23, 9 p.m.-2:30 a.m., 2011
