Tokyo Dark Castle San Francisco Announces a Change of Venue.

On Sunday, March 6th, Dark Castle returns to San Francisco at the DNA Lounge. Featuring alternative pop band Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (Tokyo), dark sythpop band Secret Secret(SF), DJs, Fantasy Gothic Waltzing, Gothic/Gothic Lolita Fashion Show, Gothic Bazaar, cosplay contest, and much more.

This event brings together the best of the Japanese gothic underground scene, into one action packed evening of entertainment where the audience is a much a part of the show as the performers. Dark Castle is very much a social event where the audience expresses their creativity in the way they come attired. Fashion ushers in the night.

Ignited in Tokyo when Robert Blaque met Genet from Auto-Mod the Dark Castle experience was developed by Genet and Taroo, leaders of the Tokyo underground movement. A three year old world renown brisance people travel from the far reaches to attend. Gothic couples have even planed their honeymoons around Dark Castle events. Now Robert Blaque brings this delightful experience to San Francisco.

Similar in the way Anime and Manga have become a part of our culture, TDC's eloquence is making its way to the local goth scene. One of the most striking elements is the Elegant Gothic Lolita. This courtly dressed peeress is beautiful, and mischievous much in the way one would envision a Gothic Alice in Wonderland. TDCSF is your opportunity to join in the festivities and experience these visions of dark beauty outside of Tokyo.
