Goths on Wheels II Brings Darkness Back to The Skatium Next Weekend


  • Tom Hellauer

Forget that the sun is shining and spring has sprung, there is still plenty of room for gloom and doom in St. Louis, and the success of our many goth-themed events prove it.

So break out your black lipstick and pull on your fishnets, because Goths on Wheels returns to the Skatium (120 E. Catalan, 314-631-3922) next Sunday, March 31. Yep, it’s a roller skating event just for goths and fans of dark music. (And their friends and fans.)

Music will be provided by goths-about-town DJ Skeletal and DJ Sainte. Expect dark classics like Siouxsie & the Banshees, industrial goth like early Nine Inch Nails and maybe even a little romantic goth like Echo & the Bunnymen.

There will also be prizes, games and raffles. And this party is BYOB with outside food and adult beverages permitted.

The cover is only $10 and kids 12 and under are free, so bring your little gothlets, too. Details at the event link.
