Goth," Jeffrey A. Swanson of Dark Star Records, which is co-promoting the
event with SGL Entertainment. "And we feel that no one has ever put
together an expo and festival of this magnitude geared toward this style
here in the States. But this event is not limited to any elite Goth
crowd. There are many different styles of music and exhibitors that are
all connected in some way to the dark world of the Gothic subculture. And
for those who are just looking for some extreme entertainment then this is
an event you do not want to miss!"

21 to drink with proper ID.
