UPCOMING GOTH PARTIES & EVENTS IN TOKYO, GREECE! DAS ICH & GOTHIKA AT MIDNIGHT MESS, JAPAN & ANIME, DJ SISEN CYBER GOTHIC NIGHTCLUB.
Does anyone know what time it is? I surely do… it’s party time, my children of the night!
If you are planning to visit Tokyo, you should come in the last week of the month in order to attend Midnight Mess. It’s the longest-running Gothic/Industrial event in Tokyo, held at the conveniently-located Shinjuku Marz. Special guests and DJS have included Skinny Puppy, Covenant, and your beloved SiSEN. Don’t feel intimidated — as you can see in this video, everyone is very friendly and the staff speak English! For Midnight Mess photos, maps, directions etc, visit my Tokyo Goth Club Guide.
