DJ Noiz.fkr Talks Tranzylvania, Vampires, Industrial Music, Dryft, Pan Sonic, and More
Why is Tranzylvania leaving Palazzo? I'm assuming because of economic viability for the club, though the format will move over to Sanctum starting the following Friday.
Why has Tranzylvania outlived any other local goth night? The commitment of the club to the night and probably because its an awesome venue, so people wanted to come back.
Craziest shit you've seen at Tranzylvania: Probably some guy jumping off the balcony one night, not sure what he was thinking.
Craziest outfit worn by a patron at Tranzylvania: Some guy dressed as the giant demonic creature from the Silent Hill movie, the one that drags that huge sword around. It was on a Halloween night.
Best experience as a DJ: My best experiences as a DJ always comes from the energy of the crowd. I typically spin 5-6 hour sets, so if the crowd isn't into it, then it's not really all that enjoyable an experience.
And the worst? What could have been a really bad experience happened one time at former Club Freedom: the power shut off in the middle of the night due to a thunder storm; i was in the middle of a stomping industrial set when things shut down. though instead of going out quietly, i started stomping down on the stage to the former beat, and everyone else in the club started doing the same for about a minute. pretty cool ending i thought.
What other clubs have you spun at? The Nile Theater, Bostons, Trinity, Freedom, Das Bunker (in Los Angeles), Anderson's Fifth Estate, Mason Jar, and several fetish balls.
Favorite bygone club: Probably Freedom because the sound system was sick (thanks to local sound enthusiast Scot Mckenzie).
What's your mantra when it comes to DJing? To see everyone on the dance floor!
