Club SOME: 26th Anniversary Reunion Returns to Numbers
When the phrase “legendary nightclub” is uttered, most people think of the dance club trailblazers such as the New York institutions Limelight and Tunnel; or Space in Ibiza that was an international hit since its inception in 1986. But as the progression of house music flourished throughout the U.S. in the late ‘80s and ‘90s, so did a swath of nightclubs that helped to pioneer a music genre that still dominates in its many forms today.
And as a progressive city, Houston was Texas’ dance music hub in the ‘90s with nightclubs such as Rich’s, Aftermath (Club AM) and, of course, Club SOME. Legendary in its own right, Club SOME was an after-hours epicenter of all things dance music; that’s house, tribal house, progressive house and trance music. The venue boasted a rotation of genre-specific DJs that helped to create Club SOME’s unique soundscape which included LeRoy Peters, Michael Degrace, Jimmy Skinner and Sean Carnahan.
The club was a mainstay Wednesday through Sunday for a generation of club kids, music lovers and young club-goers who knew that the hottest new dance tracks and subculture social scene was at Club SOME. From Basement Jaxx’s “Red Alert” and “Fly Life” to E.G. Fullalove’s “Didn’t I know (Divas to the Dance Floor),” Club SOME permeated the city with powerful vocals and heroic beats ’til dawn.
Club SOME closed in 2000, but LeRoy Peters decided to host a 25th anniversary event at Numbers in June 2016. Fast forward a year later on the 26th anniversary of the club, and the 2nd Annual Club SOME Reunion arrives on Saturday, June 10, at Numbers. The Club SOME reunion is a chance for old friends and dancing partners to reconnect and relive some memorable moments while dancing to the resurrected sounds of LeRoy Peters.
