ABOUT LUVAFAIR:

When the Luv-a-Fair closed its doors for the last time last ON feb 1-2003, it was the last gasp for generations of the cool people who craved something edgy alongside their cheap gin and tonics.

For the not yet jaded or weary, it was the Vancouver night scene's most thrilling spectacle for most of three decades. For a good many Vancouverites from disco age and younger, the heyday of the Luv-a-Fair at Seymour and Drake was the heyday of Vancouver's club scene.

The DJs played alternative music & disco and they ruled, although there was the occasional live act, too, including Nina Hagen, Killing Joke, the Subhumans, Sonic Youth, the Violent Femmes, singer Divine, Wall of Voodoo, Nine Inch Nails (the not yet legendary band got paid $5,000 US and played to about 100 people in 1989).

Curious celebrities showed up. The Cure and U2 regularly crashed the party whenever they would play in town. As did Supergrass, Skinny Puppy, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Moe Berg, Marilyn Manson, Blur, the Pixies, Hole, Village People, Ministry and Talking Heads. And the movie people, too: Mark Wahlberg, Tom Cruise, Farrah Fawcett, Johnny Depp and Ray Liotta.

In the late '70s, early '80s, it transformed from a strictly disco-playing gay bar to punk rock and new wave sanctuary -- while every other club in town played Top 40. Through the dry ice billowing across the dance floor, you might see a mile-long drag queen lounging across one of the speakers. The speakers perfectly symbolized the place's tongue-in-cheek, see-and-be-seen philosophy. They were the display pedestal for the best-dressed, best-looking, or simply the vainest or highest.

When the Luv-a-Fair was at its peak, you felt like anything could happen, or anybody could walk through the doors.
