The "hard drinkin', foul mouthed, in yer face, American gothic" nightclub turns 14 this week and invites lunatics from near and far to come celebrate at this insane birthday party. Strap on your dancing boots and enjoy the fine sounds of deathrock, original gothic and avant garde alternative music from DJs Dave Grave, Thee Gabe, Dingbat and Dave Bats. Special giveaways all night long (the first 50 freaks through the door get an official RTB 14th Anniversary badge), plus classic videos and photos screened on "bat monitors," vendors, smut peddlers and more promise to make this special night one to remember—if only through a hazy, hungover fog. Don't miss the midnight toast, honoring the 166th RTB and all the crazy, wicked, beautiful creatures of the night that come out each month.
