Pleasure, Pain, and Dark Desires With The Church at The Vagabond September 4

After the good boys and girls sang hymns on Sunday mornings, the rest of us gathered at Groove Jet Sunday nights for a more entertaining musical experience at The Church.

You might have heard the words, "Your pain is my pleasure," whispered into your ear as you floated through the crowd of pale faces in your Elizabethan regalia during the classic '90s party. And those with a taste for goth will be glad to hear that The Church will rise again at The Vagabond September 4.

Holy piercings and lace! The invite for this reincarnation of the celebrated night "beckons your submission" to attend. At The Church, The Normal's "Warm Leatherette" and Real Life's "Send Me an Angel" inspired many a Kendall girl to gothic two-step till dawn when she ran home to the safety of her coffin.

Dark days will return with music spun by classic Churchgoers like Danny Bled and Tommy Gunn, Dracula's Daughter, DJ Dino, Ray Milian, Carmel Ophir, Desiree, and Nitebloom. Vampires, deviants, Robert Smith-alikes, and those with regular old '90s nostalgia are all welcome.

The Church. Sunday, September 4. The Vagabond, 30 NE 14 St., Miami. Services start at 10 p.m. and tickets cost $10 plus fees via wantickets.com. Call 305-379-0508 or visit thevagabondmiami.com.
