Help Us by Donating to Communion After Dark!
The Castle opened in 1992 as a small saloon with a determined goal: create a great place that all of our friends would like to visit.
Adding in the idea of strong drinks, from a diverse selection of single malt scotches, small batch bourbon, aged tequila and a eclectic mix of beers from around the world didn’t hurt either. A killer jukebox supplied the music for a few years, before Dj’s were added to spice up the varied genre’s that the Castle royalty required.
Since then, there has been many changes but the goals are still the same.
For over 18 years Tom had DJ’ed on Fridays and Saturdays at The Castle. A true pioneer of the Dark Electronic movement in the United States, Tom’s run at The Castle is one of the longest-standing gigs held by any single DJ in the American scene. He is always pushing the envelope to make the Tampa scene evolve by introducing listeners to new music and booking local shows.
Spinning the latest and best Industrial, Elektro, Futurepop, Powernoise, Synthpop, EBM and Gothic dance music that ranges across the scene. This dark alternative night brings out a nice mix of tourists and the regulars, and is the premiere night to hear these styles of music in the United States.
Show off unique looks of Cyber, Glam, Gothic, Lolita, Military, Vampire, Fetish, Steampunk and victorian styles that can only be seen here.
Come to see a variety of personalities, celebrities, fetishists, performers and dancer, or show us your own style.
Visual performers every house and special guest DJs on selected nights. Look for monthly themed special events.
