The Vogue, a historic Seattle nightclub, is fast approaching its final closing time. Vogue, which became Blacklight when it moved six months ago into the Capitol Hill Arts Center, will close Sunday morning.

As Blacklight, the Vogue relocated to the CHAC, 1621 12th Ave., when it could no longer afford rent at a nearby 11th Avenue space. Blacklight operated as a “club in residence.”

In a press release, organizers at CHAC said, “noise in the building became a concern. … Though CHAC and Blacklight were commended by the police for keeping the measurable (DB) levels low and within legal limits, citizen complaints persisted.”

Though in recent years it was a dance club for Goth-industrial crowds, the Vogue also hosted hundreds of rock shows over two decades, including early shows by Nirvana, Alice in Chains and the Melvins.
