And, for the umpteenth time Seattle apparently bade farewell to the twenty year old retro dance party known as ROCK LOBSTER, the Thursday night perennial at Neighbours originally created by DJ Randy Schlager and host Mark “Mom” Finley that celebrated the iconic hits of the 1980s. Current show runner/DJ Trent Von originally closed the show a year and a half ago with a big good bye party that drew hundreds of loyal fans, many of them original and pushing 50. The success of that “aloha” convinced Von to keep the night alive at various venues before returning once again to Neighbours.
Rather quietly, Rock Lobster closed up shop last night, Thursday, April 3rd, but we have a sneaky suspicion that it’s only in a coma…you can’t keep an old whore like the 80s, down. Stay tuned for news on that front.
As for Thursday night at Neighbours, they’ve decided to move the clock and the calendar up a couple decades. Partnering with Sinfinite Events, the new Thursday night will be:
