ELYSIUM, Austin Goth Club with Voltaire and Brobdingnagian Bards

Elysium is Austin's premiere Goth club and industrial haven. Voltaire is a brilliant Goth musician and satirist from New York City. The Brobdingnagian Bards are Austin's Original Celtic Renaissance. Add a bit of drinking songs and some mystical Lord of the Rings inspired-music and you have an idea of what we're about.

So how does an Celtic group get booked at a Goth club?
Answer: Voltaire!

It's strange how things work out.

You see, Voltaire performs at a LOT of the same Science Fiction Conventions (I-Con, DragonCon, Opus Fantasy Arts Festival) that we play at. Many Goths go to Sci Fi Conventions and many like our music too. Our fan bases cross over quite a bit.

Also, I'm a HUGE fan of Voltaire. When we were up in New York last month, I decided I wanted to have Voltaire perform in Austin. So I went to the place where every Goth in Austin goes, ELYSIUM. While I was booking Voltaire into Elysium, I mentioned how well our audiences mesh. Lo and behold, we were booked alongside Voltaire and another yet to be mentioned Goth music group.

So on June 3oth, we are going Goth. Don your black kilt and eyeliner, grab a copy of Voltaire's book What Is Goth to find your Goth name, and join us at Austin's Goth Club, Elysium, for a new you won't soon forget!
