Things to Do at Night… In Melbourne

Now, seeing as I live in Sydney, I can hardly be called upon to give you information on happenings in other cities or territories of Australia. Furthermore, I can hardly be described as a goth, being the sort of young lady that thrives during the day and rather wilts during the night.

Still, let it not be said that I am cold and unfeeling. Today’s post is for those lovely people in Melbourne who may or may not be reading this blog. Specifically, this is for the young men and women who enjoy the nightlife.

The Goth Club is a useful resource for goths in Melbourne, reviewing all manner of items from the practicality of Bullet Proof Corsets (useful in case of a zombie invasion) to various concerts and events like the TripleJ One Night Stand. Like any self-respecting club, it also offers a variety of drinks – recipes for disaster that you can mix in your very own home!

The website is run by Egofreaky, an acquaintance of mine whose hobbies include bartending, manga and various nighttime pursuits. Egofreaky is fairly active in the Melbourne manga community – he runs OzTaku and also heads the committee for the Melbourne anime festival, Manifest.

So, if you’re into ghoulies and ghosties and long-legged beasties and things that go bump in the night, why not just mosey on over to The Goth Club with your night time host, Egofreaky?

You can visit the club at It’s every bit as pretentious as being at an actual club, but with less drunken guys trying to chat you up.

If you’re more into the manga side of things, check out Oztaku at Oztaku is a community of Australian manga artists and while most of their members are Melbournians, they’re open to all comers.

Alternatively, if you’re interested in manga, living in Melbourne and just looking for a one time deal, you could also go to Manifest, which will be on the 21st to the 23rd of August. You can find out more abot Manifest at their website,
