THE DOMINION (Tuesday / Saturdays)
The Continent / Fat Kat
DJs John Carraway and Tristan
In the beginning the Dominion started in Club 5’s backstage as a Tuesday night
Gothic promotion with Dj Ian Fford (who is currently a resident at New York’s most
popular Goth nights) With the addition of the live action role-playing game
VAMPIRE: the Masquerade the club requested a Saturday night be added.
Bringing in the legendary talents of Dj Myk World the night flourished, on some
nights matching the numbers of the main club. Due to renovations the night had
to be shut down, but resumed six months later when the Continent asked to
pick up the night. The one night a week promotion lasted for approximately
eleven months until the club was closed.
The Dominion briefly reopened at XANADU for a three week stint in 2000.

A weekly club promotion, Monday at Max’s was a weekly gathering of friends

became so popular it was moved to a night club environment. Halcyon,
a Wednesday night promotion shared by Max and Dj Jeremy, featured
Dj’s from Jacksonville and around Florida. Creators of promotional campaigns
like “Where were you on Monday?”, “Free OJ” night (in honor of OJ Simpson
they gave away free orange juice) and “Old Rave Night”, a night dedicated to the
classic hits from the beginnings of the musical phenomena
