Club Review: Cornucopia

It's 11pm on a Saturday night in Belfast and some otherworldly beautiful people are coming out to play at the Rosetta Bar. The reason? Why, it's 'Cornucopia', Northern Ireland’s best goth night and a great excuse to dig out your Bauhaus T-shirt and wear so much black eyeliner and lippy that you'll need a blowtorch to remove it - and that's just the dress code for the boys!
'Cornucopia' is a monthly event at the Rosetta Bar, one of Belfast's longest established rock venues, normally taking place on the first Saturday of every month. The music policy is a darkly seductive mix of classic goth favourites, with usual suspects The Sisters Of Mercy, The Cure and Bauhaus alongside industrial tunes and a smattering of the darker side of '80s pop (don't be surprised if you hear the odd Duran Duran tune - we were even treated to a tune from cult '80s vampire flick, 'The Lost Boys', when we were there), provided by resident DJs Chameleongirl and Verboten.
While 'Cornucopia' does take a while to get busy, there were still quite a few white-skinned, black-clad, glamourous individuals throwing a myriad of interesting shapes on the dancefloor when we arrived. It IS worth your while to get there early, particularly as the doors open at 9pm and admission is only £2 before 10:30pm (it'll cost you a fiver afterwards).
Although it can be hard for more 'specialist' music nights to survive in such a relatively small city as Belfast, it would be a real shame to miss out on the treat that is 'Cornucopia'. Chameleongirl and Verboten, really know their tunes and play a fantastic mix of classic tracks and newer material, which makes it the ideal place for young and old goths alike to let their black locks down in...
Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our jaunt to 'Cornucopia' and we'll certainly be returning (the next night takes place on June 5). Who knows? This little Siouxsie wannabe may even meet her very own Vampire Lestat who'll be able to give her a love-bite with a difference... Well, a girl can dream can't she?
