Club Report: The Castle (Tampa)
CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE
Had the opportunity last night to go partying at The Castle in Tampa and the place was absolutely amazing. Thursdays are called "Pop'N'Wave" night and during past Thursday visits the music was always a mix of Alternative, Indie, and Electro videos together with a good dose of Goth. It was the place I first saw and heard the name of someone called Lady Gaga. Well either I never stayed late enough or DJ Mike Roehr has shifted things a bit. Because while the first few hours were the familiar format I was expecting, beyond 1am things quickly moved into very well-known Top 40, Pop, House & Dance songs. Even a couple Hip Hop/Dance songs were masterfully mixed in and the DJ kept the dance floor jammed until everyone had to be chased away close to 3am. The Castle, located in a former church in Ybor City, is worth the drive over to Tampa on Thursday nights. Fridays are much more Goth and Saturdays extremely Industrial.
