RAPTURE St. Louis, Guide & Review
Upon entering Rapture, you might feel like you’ve stepped into an unofficial Zombie Squad meeting. But children of the dark side are usually very sweet (we swear) — and at this weekly staple, everything is accepted: alternative, corsets, industrial, combat boots, mope, white face powder, ’80s, transvestites, indie rockers, tragic goth dancing… you name it, it’s cool. At Rapture, there are no crimes against fashion, only music. Black lipstick? Awesome. Don’t know the words to ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’? Blasphemy. Here, you’re pretty much guaranteed to hear the Cure, the Smiths, Echo & the Bunnymen and Nine Inch Nails — along with more underground things on the stompy industrial and gothic side as well — courtesy of DJ Skeletal and guests. The only weekly club night in St. Louis that brings you industrial, Goth, Darkwave, EBM, Electro, and more.
DJ Skeletal has been spinning Industrial and Gothic music at nightclubs in St. Louis since 2000, and runs Spookhouse Events Productions and various online St. Louis Goth scene forums. He is passionate about supporting the bands, artists, and music within the scene, as well as other DJs and promoters who share the same passion.
Great drinks prices, awesome DJs, and industrial specials. Come out and dance to best of the late 70s post-punk era to the 80s goth and dark alternative explosion to the Darkwave and industrial movement of the 90s. What an awesome Retro dance party!
