- Private Party
When Rock Island closed in 2006 after a long, legendary run, it left a big hole in the gothic and industrial communities. And while there are still rumors that the Island will start up again one day, it's probably not going to happen anytime soon. In the meantime, for those who frequented the legendary 15th Street club, there's a good chance you'll run into somebody you know at Milk on Wednesdays and Saturdays, when the club hosts '80s & '90s Retro/Goth nights. Resident DJ Mike Rich spins a thoroughly decent set of new wave from the Reagan era, with a bit of old-school goth thrown in; Paul Italiano, FashioNation owner, spins at the club once a month. (Both Rich and Italiano are former Rock Island DJs.) While Milk, with its Clockwork Orange theme, is a bit small, it's still a great spot to get your retro dance on and hang with a fascinating mix of folks, some decked out in full goth regalia.
