Twilo Vigil
by melod: 06-21-2001

The Farewell Vigil was a simple vision, an opportunity for Twilo's own to gather and bid farewell and thank-you to their beloved club. But as with everything related to Twilo, things have a way of evolving into something larger than even the originators could have imagined.

From about 7:30-10:30 PM, members of the Twilo's community and lovers of electronic music came out on Thursday evening to participate in the vigil. While an official headcount was never tabulated, approximately 100 people fill the sidewalk and spilled over onto West 27th Street. Local networks and publications were on hand to document the event for their services. What they found gathered that evening was a community of open-minded individuals, brought together by their love for music danced to in this warehouse on West 27th Street.

Throughout the night, mementos were left outside the black steel entrance of the club, the very same entrance that brought you a step closer to a place "Like No Other Place on Earth." Scattered about were messages sent from absent supporters, posters and photos of Twilo events, autographed shirt, stubborn candles, bouquets after bouquets of flowers, and even a lady's wedding bouquet. Appropriately so, glowsticks and Red Bulls, common sights on a regular night at Twilo, made its way into the piles of goodies.

Although Twilo is currently vacant and the faithful had already gathered to bid farewell, life reminds us that the future is never as bleak as it looks. Those of us gathered that evening witnessed the strength of our community and realized that the Twilo vibe is greater than the establishment itself because it lives within us and around us. This has been evidenced in the fiery success of private loft parties which included Sander Kleinenberg and Danny Howells.

No one is keeping their heads down about this. The powers that be are working and striving toward keeping the excitement alive for future. July 3rd, the forces are coming back strong. Danny Howells will playing for independence at Vinyl. The city can take away our building, they can enforce rules and regulations on us but they can NEVER, NEVER take away our hearts and our souls.
