Thursday's: Tavern 29 (Seasonal) and Swift Hiberian Lounge
During a 2000-2002 stretch, one of Marcus' residencies was at a Lounge called Absolutely 4th where he was written up for starting a throwback 80's etc. night. Please see review in Shecky's Bar & Lounge Guide Circa 2001.
Two Reviews from Shecky's Bar and Lounge Guide:
"Absolutely 4th is absolutely fabulous. This cozy, romantic, and stylish
little lounge might be one of the best-kept secrets in the West Village.
Behind an unassuming exterior lies a Moroccan-themed bar/lounge that has
visitors believing in love at first sight. Wednesdays are reserved for
karaoke while other eve's invite patrons to sway to the DJ. Thursday's
guilty pleasure '80s new wave party will soon have you screaming out
requests for secret shame bands whose names you've long been repressing." -Shecky's Bar & Lounge Guide, 2001
"Thursdays are a night for guilty pleasures
with 80s new wave playing, and before you even realize it you are requesting
Erasure from the DJ." -Shecky's Bar & Lounge Guide, 2003
I want to thank the Senior Editor, Erin Donnelly, for providing me with these past reviews. I highly reccommend this guide as a resource to ones libations, festivities and otherwise.
Prior to this stint. Marcus worked as a DJ for many large clubs and Raves throughout the greater Seattle area. Some of the venues include: The Romper Room (now called the Watertown), Belltown NightClub, Celeberties, Phantom, the Vogue and a few others in the early 90's.
