Concert Report: Visage Reunion (Independent Bar)

It was no ordinary Saturday night at Independent Bar last night. Instead of the usual,I-Bar became home to the Visage Reunion!
I knew it was going to be a great night when I walked in and the forever-gorgeous Tina Vaine was in the ticket booth!
I knew it was going to be a great night when I walked in to the main room at 10:30PM and the dance floor was already completely jammed!
I knew it was going to be a great night when I walked into the booth and foundVisage original DJ Paul Vaine (USA) leading the festivities!
Visage was a club that used to exist on OBT over in the Lockhart area and it was Orlando’s home to Industrial & Goth.
The Visage Reunion has become an annual celebration of what once was!
And it always packs them in with a mix of 80’s New Wave classics you expect from I-Bar on a Saturday night plus the darker stuff as played at Visage back in the day!
Spotted by the stairs: Tracy
Spotted in VIP: Karen & Jeff from Mannequins.
Spotted in the foyer: Andrea & Will
Spotted on the dance floor: Debbie & Christa
Spotted at the bar: DJ Smilin’ Dan (USA) & DJ Kimball Collins (USA)
What a great vibe last night!
You could just not get people off the floor!
I did not live in Orlando during the Visage era but became acquainted with Paul Vaine’s work during his Friday night Venue 13 residency at 11/12 Lounge (formerlyCyberzone) on Lee Road.
2AM and the club still packed!
Not many 20-somethings in the place; like the AAHZ Reunion in November, this was a 30+ crowd!
We need to do this more than 1x per year, lol!
A good time was had by all!
