War of the Roses

February 25 @ 9:00 pm - February 26 @ 1:00 am


As the clock strikes nine on the evening of February 25, 2024, the legendary Red Room in Vancouver transforms into a realm where the gothic and the romantic entwine in an extraordinary dance. Welcome to ‘War of the Roses’, Descent’s enchanting Valentine’s event, where the celebration of love and its deliciously dark counterpoints coalesce under one roof.

In this unique Descent celebration, love is not just in the air—it’s in every shadow, every beat, and every heart that dares to embrace the different shades of affection. This is not your typical Valentine’s Day festivity; it’s an event where even the skeptics of love find solace in the pulsating gothic energy. It’s a night where Cupid’s arrows are replaced by the hypnotic rhythms of our beloved resident DJs—DJ Surreal, DJ Joshy Neurotic, and DJ MissBDeath—each weaving a tapestry of tunes that resonate with the soul of goth and the spirit of Valentine’s.

But what truly sets ‘War of the Roses’ apart is its atmosphere. Imagine a space where crimson roses meet black lace, where the sweet scent of romance intertwines with the electrifying essence of goth culture. The Red Room, a venue steeped in history and draped in a cloak of enigmatic charm, serves as the perfect backdrop for this nocturnal festival of love and loathing.

The night is an invitation to everyone—those spellbound by love, those disillusioned by it, and everyone in between. Whether you come adorned in the deepest reds or the most somber blacks, ‘War of the Roses’ welcomes you to a community where being different is the norm and where every expression of love, or lack thereof, is celebrated.

Expect a night filled with contrasts. The sweet melodies that whisper tales of love will occasionally give way to the fierce beats that echo the heart’s rebellions. As the hours slip away into the night, the dance floor becomes a battleground where roses of passion and thorns of heartache dance together, creating an unforgettable experience.

‘War of the Roses’ is more than just a party; it’s a testament to the inclusive and diverse nature of the Descent community. It’s a place where the gothic heart finds its beat, where friendships are forged in the neon glow, and where every emotion finds its echo in the music.

So mark your calendars, dress in your gothic best, and prepare for a night where the War of the Roses will be fought not with swords, but with beats, steps, and the unyielding spirit of love in all its forms. Welcome to Descent—let the battle commence!
