Thank you!

Thank you all so much for coming to the Ceremony Reunion 2018! We were so happy to be able to share this time with you again. For so many, it was a night of high emotion: a time to remember where we have been, what we have lost, and what we are still here to celebrate and enjoy as we make new memories and future plans. We must do this again some time.

You can part of the CURRENT goth scene by attending monthly dance nights Midian (with DJ Hiem) and Requiem (with DJ Crashzer0), as well as all the other great events that you can keep up with if you follow the PGH Goth Facebook group. We hope to see you soon!

Announcing: DJ TFS

Posted on

We regret to announce that DJ Salo will not be able to join us from Chicago after all, due to a temporary health issue. Taking his place will be DJ TFS (Don Anderson).

Don was a member of The Night Shift from 2004-2008. He specializes in IDM, power noise, dark electro, and classic industrial. He was a resident at Obsidian in 2015 and Night Warp in 2016, and spun at the 2014 Ceremony Reunion. He is also the lead vocalist and programmer for solo industrial projects Terror Firma Sky and Virul God Complex.

We wish DJ Salo a speedy recovery and look forward to rocking out with DJ TFS!

Raffle Basket

Posted on Updated on

rafflebasketUp for raffle tonight will be a Ceremony gift basket jam-packed full of goodies. Items inside include generous gift certificates and merchandise from our vendors, super-limited edition keepsake items we made just for the Reunion, and a bottle of wine for good measure!

The raffle table will be on the main (upper level), which is also where we’ll be drawing the winner at 11:45 p.m. Raffle tickets are $1 for 1 ticket, $5 for 10 tickets, and $10 for 20 tickets.

You’ll also be able to directly purchase a very small number of the keepsakes (key chains, magnets, and mugs) and the LAST few remaining Ceremony T-shirts. Get there early before they’re gone!

Drink Special: $5 Red Deaths

Posted on

For those who remember, Ceremony’s most (in)famous drink was certainly the Red Death…so we are pleased to announce that Cattivo will be offering them for $5 at the Reunion! This version is specially formulated to taste like the recipe served at The Upstage. Enjoy one if you dare!


Food at Cattivo

Cattivo is known for good food, particularly pizza. Come early, stay late, and get some dinner in between! Check out their menu.

Now On Two Floors!

Big news! The Ceremony Reunion is expanding!

Since we are so close to selling out the downstairs of Cattivo so far in advance, we are taking over the main level as well! Our eight DJs will now be rotating on two dance floors.

Thank you SO much to all of you who bought your tickets early – you are the reason this can happen. We do still recommend buying advance tickets. You can do that right here: ceremonyreunion.brownpapertickets.com
