Rock Lobster a thrilling '80s throwback

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

Rock Lobster
Thursday nights
Neighbours
Nightclub


The 1980s may have given us a national headache, but it also relieved what ailed us with a healthy dose of MTV, rad music, and totally tubular fashion! Well, 2010 may be a long ways from 1980, but thankfully for us, each and every Thursday night GLAMAZONIA and DJ Trent Von turn Neighbours Nightclub into a time machine and take us on an "excellent adventure" to Rock Lobster - Seattle's longest-running '80s dance party!

Rock Lobster is just what the dance doctor ordered. Seattle Gay News checked out the party last Thursday and found that at Rock Lobster, the weekend starts on Thursday night!

First and foremost, I've got to hand it to Rock Lobster's hostess, GLAMAZONIA, for creating an atmosphere of fun that leaves you begging for more. Each Thursday, GLAM does a tribute performance to an artist of the '80s; last week's tributee was the one and only Boy George. GLAM's Boy, a la the Culture Club era, was spot-on! From the makeup to the costume (with some mad harmonica skills!), GLAM delivered the best "Karma Chameleon" since Boy George's painted face appeared on TVs across the world. Immediately following the performance, GLAM handpicked audience members that had donned '80s apparel (that's right, kids, dressing the part is highly encouraged!) for gift giveaways that included a VHS tape of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and a DeBarge record! Fun! Fabulous! '80s!

It's all about the music, right? I mean, seriously, the '80s produced some of the best music ever made for dancing - even if you can't dance. DJ Trent Von spins all the familiar hits by Madonna (when she was young), Cher (when she was, um & younger), and the usual suspects like Culture Club, The Cure, and the like. However, and this has happened to me each and every time I've gone to Rock Lobster: A song will come on that you either have forgotten about or just didn't realize you liked so much, when the party is over you go home, and download it immediately.

The beauty of Rock Lobster is its simplicity. Show up - in fab '80s wear if you so choose - and dance. Having a great time while cruising the cute boys and girls to the soundtrack of your childhood or high school years is easy as pie! Plus - and I really mean this with every fiber of my being - you never know what GLAMAZONIA has in store for the audience.

Be a part of the Rock Lobster loyal following every Thursday night, beginning at 10 p.m. at Neighbours Nightclub in Seattle. For an added bonus, the $3 cover allows you to attend both Rock Lobster and Back Spin, the best of the '80s, '90s, and today, with the legendary DJ Dana Dub in Neighbours Underground.
