I went to Vamp once at Bar32. To my disappointment, it was mostly full of very young people who were so edgy and so individualistic that they tried unsuccessfully to stare and intimidate me and my group of friends out of our seats so they could sit there. This truly is for ‘children’ of the night.

The music left a lot to be desired – I didn’t hear anything along the lines of the bands listed above, and it was only after extended nagging my friend was able to get the DJ taking requests to play a Strapping Young Lad song – the wrong song, might I add, but eh, any SYL is better than the techno remixes that were being played. We left shortly after, leaving our coveted place on the seats to the endless parades of teens trying too hard.

Am I the only one who misses Lithium?

My wardrobe betrays me, but I like the playlist.

I love the music, but neogoth/vampirism isn’t my scene. :/
