Nightclubs, Club Nights, Events...

in Australia & New Zealand (Aotearoa) that focus on the core music genres of dark alternative post-punk, (electro) industrial, gothic rock, post-industrial electronica etc.

DJ Robot Citizen: This list was updated: 2018-June-21. These kinds of lists are soon out-of-date; night clubs come & go. To make this list more useful and meaningful long-term I've sought to list below the clubs that: i) have done more than one event and/or which; ii) appear to occur regularly - like once a week or month or bi-monthly or several times per year.
If you know of a relevant regular ongoing club that I ought list below please get in touch via the FB page (link above). Or if you find that a club is long gone and over please let me know likewise.

The list is in A-Z order for city name.
Some context - particularly for overseas visitors - the most populated cities in Australia are: Sydney (~5 million), Melbourne (~4.6 million), Brisbane (~2.4 million), Perth (~2 million), Adelaide (~1.3 million), Gold Coast (~640K), Greater Newcastle (~500K), Canberra (~400K), Wollongong (~300K), Hobart (~220K) and for Aotearoa (New Zealand): Auckland (~1.5 million), Wellington (~400K), Christchurch (~400K).
Sydney and Melbourne generally have the more regular events with larger attendances. Although scenes split, rise and fall everywhere and sometimes the smaller cities have more regular and/or larger events. Currently these club scenes everywhere - around ANZ & the world - seem to be less frequent compared to the last big resurgence of the late '00s. That's when many cities had more regular events such as once-a-week and even several per week. Nonetheless there are currently many awesome events happening in ANZ!
