Excess was a hot and nostalgic night of (mostly) nineties era novelties, covers, & remixes spanning multiple genres. Fascinating as it is to do all the prep I do for an event like this and still not come anywhere near sharing the ton of music I rediscover along the way, one thing I recognize about my experience is that "my 90's" might be oddly askew from "others' 90's."
¯\(◉‿◉)/¯
Next Excess is Halloween season, third Friday in October! Dirge says, "get skeletal!" I say, "any undead'll do!" Either way, we'll unveil some news that you will not want to miss! No spoilers... ◔‿◔

HaVeN's first Black Cat Ball, WHISKERS, was a really fun night! Lot of new faces and some we hadn't seen in a while. Certainly debunks any notion that "the scene is dying," which we've heard time and again for the past decade.
Speaking of the decade, in roughly two weeks I celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the first time I spun at HaVeN. Sadly, its one of very few playlists I've misplaced. I still remember how I accidentally stopped and had to restart one of the last songs in that first-hour set. Things from which you learn, right?
So at Haven's Goth 101 Back To School party on September 29, I may do something special for everyone. Keep an eye on my site for the link to the invitation and RSVP when you see it. Should be up in the next few days!

Though I played maybe three cover songs, there was only one on my playlist that I've featured on my SeeDarkly SundayDisCoveries blog, but I've still included a link to its entry for those who want to learn more about it. (It had a nice cat-like stride about it to open the night!) Enjoy!

Thanks to all who joined us in their pajamas at HaVeN! I got too warm during set up so I decided to forgo wearing the PJs I brought. (Weather sure turned quick. I expect it's shorts or skirts for me for the next few months.)
