I go to Black Machine every time it's on; it's nice change to the regular Friday night and the musc is very good - usually goth heavy before the bands, then a lot of EBM / synth-pop afterwards. Very friendly locals >=)

Seasons End were amazing! I hope they come back again soon! The band before them were really awful though.

Friends from elsewhere in country are envious that Bournemouth has a regular night with goth bands playing. They have to travel miles away or wait for events like Whitby, Black Machine puts Bournemouth on the map!

Not been to a Blackmachine nite yet I dont think: although I think I should do this time round as I keep hearing good things about it. Better get a Tenner ready for that membership-card I think!

Alas, poor Club X - we knew it well. These nights are no more...the slot was given to "Hard House Nights" or whatever, as if Bournemouth needed more trendy nights. Club X is now basically a pure trendiemusic (TM) venue.
