Gothic Corner: Dead Celebrities Invade Green Room for Black Friday
Green Room's weekly Black Friday event is letting those six feet under rise again on June 22, for the Dead Celebrity party. Partygoers are asked to dress as their favorite deceased musician, artist, or pop-culture icon, or hell, even a zombie, and dance the night away to the Goth anthems spun by DJs LinderSMASH and Kaos.
"Deceased fictional characters are also welcome," Linder tells us: ie: Heath Ledger's "Joker" or Kill Bill's Elle Driver, a.k.a. California Mountain Snake. "Does Agent Coulson from the Avengers, or Obi-Wan hold any less place in our hearts?" Linder asks, "Double points for being a character of a deceased celeb that died on screen like Cleopatra, or the Crow."
The idea was born from a request by local Goth-night regulars. "I loved the idea and ran with it," Linder says, "Working with their ideas makes the night better, it's a great community and scene we've built together."
DJ LinderSMASH's favorite musician of the afterlife may be Peter Steele of Type-O-Negative, but he'll dawn a pair of shades and do his best to rep the man in black himself, Johnny Cash.
