For most of us in the Atlanta Underground Club Scene, Dragon*Con is the social pinnacle of our year. Not only are there a ton of panels, performances, and parties that are perfectly catered to our interests, but many of us also pay for hotel rooms just to keep the party going non-stop, all night long. A hotel room will certainly come in handy on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights for the three Dragon*Con late night Dragon Dance parties with three amazing underground DJs.
The Dragon Dance parties will begin around 2:30am and go until 6am in the Marriott Marquis Atrium Ballroom. Friday night is Charlotte’s DJ Spider, Saturday is DJ Nemesis of Boston/Atlanta, and Sunday is Atlanta’s own VJ Anthony.
Friday night, DJ Spider will go on immediate following Voltaire. According to the Facebook event page, she will be spinning her “usual mess of anything and everything”. This will include dance, pop, techno, industrial, goth, EBM, 80s, 90s, synthpop, and mashups. Earlier in the evening, DJ Spider will also be spinning the Silver Anniversary Charity Masked Ball in the Hyatt from 10pm-2am. Start Dragon*Con weekend off with a bang with DJ Spider and the first of three nights of Dragon Dance parties.
DJ Nemesis takes the stage on Saturday night for the fourth year running. He will be playing a mix of electro/industrial/EBM/80’s/mashups/electrohHouse, and according to the Facebook event page, “anything that makes bodies move”. Teamed up with Secretroom.net, the Saturday Dragon Dance has a Sci-Fi Fantasy Space theme. Dress in costume if you like, and expect to see beautiful sci-fi Go-Go girls on stage, as has been the case in years past. DJ Nemesis will go on immediately following Freezepop, so get there early and start dancing!
Wrap up Dragon*Con weekend with VJ Anthony, Atlanta’s favorite VJ. Back for the 3rd year in a row, Anthony will be spinning dark wave , 80s, electro, goth, indie, industrial, and techno with music videos beat-matched on huge video screens. If you’ve never had the pleasure of seeing VJ Anthony, do NOT miss this night! VJ Anthony will go on immediately after the Attention System show. He has also asked people to post their requests on the Facebook event page, so do it now!
Stock up on 5 Hour Energy drinks, take a nap, and do whatever it is you have to do to stay up and dance all night and morning long Friday through Sunday at Dragon*Con with DJ Spider, DJ Nemesis, and VJ Anthony!
