Descent Pirates VS Ninjas 2024 on June 23, 2024

Ahoy there, mateys and stealthy shadows! Prepare to set sail on the seas of darkness or vanish into the night, as Descent presents its most swashbuckling, stealth-infused event yet: Pirates vs. Ninjas! On June 23, 2024, The Red Room in Vancouver transforms into a battleground where corsairs clash with silent assassins in a night of epic proportions.

Descent, the cornerstone of Vancouver’s gothic scene, has been the haven for creatures of the night for years. Known for its vibrant and welcoming community, it’s the perfect place for both seasoned goths and curious newcomers to dance, mingle, and revel in an atmosphere that’s both electric and enchanting. And with our Pirates vs. Ninjas theme, the stakes have never been higher—or more entertaining.

The Red Room will be your ship and your shadowy dojo, offering a spacious dance floor and an intimate ambiance perfect for striking poses and showing off your best moves—whether you’re sword fighting or shuriken throwing. Expect a visual feast as the venue is decked out with nautical decorations and mysterious ninja artifacts, setting the perfect stage for our legendary battle.

Commanding the decks (pun very much intended) will be our resident DJs, each ready to spin tales of musical magic. DJ Surreal, known for her otherworldly mixes, will take you on a journey through dark waves and eerie shores. DJ Joshy Neurotic will have you thrashing and ninja-flipping to the beat with his high-energy goth-industrial tracks. And don’t forget DJ MissBDeath, who will serenade your inner pirate or ninja with haunting melodies and shadowy rhythms.

While costumes aren’t mandatory, they are highly encouraged. Whether you arrive as a fearsome pirate with a hook hand and eye patch, or a ninja clad in sleek black, you’ll fit right in. And if you can’t decide? Why not combine both for the ultimate pirate-ninja hybrid—just watch out for your peg leg while executing those high kicks.

Expect the unexpected: dance-offs between pirates and ninjas and maybe even a treasure hunt with some delightful, dark prizes.

Descent has always been a place of inclusivity and safety, where everyone can be themselves without fear of judgment. It’s more than just a club night; it’s a community, a family, and on June 23, a battleground for the ages.

So mark your calendars, polish your cutlasses, and sharpen your shurikens. Whether you’re team Pirate or team Ninja, one thing’s for sure: this Descent event will be legendary. Don’t miss out on the clash of a lifetime—come for the theme, stay for the camaraderie, and dance till you drop anchor or vanish into the night. Arrr you ready?

Prepare to immerse yourself in the shadowy splendor of Descent, the ultimate gothic night in Vancouver! On June 9, 2024, from 9 PM to 1 AM, The Red Room will transform into a mesmerizing haven for those who revel in the allure of the dark side. Nestled in the heart of Vancouver, this iconic venue will once again be the epicenter of gothic, industrial, and EBM rhythms that have kept the city’s nightlife pulsating for years.
