We reached our 150th show! We started this one with a block of new tracks. Operator OT talked a little about Club Nevermore’s recent return to live in-person events, and the following three blocks were a mix of darkwave, post-punk, and industrial tracks he played at that event. The fifth block was a set of goth, shoegaze, and post-punk tracks by Black and African American artists, in honor of Juneteenth. We closed the show with a set of summer-themed ambient and experimental tracks.
Thanks to everybody who came to Club Nevermore’s event on Saturday night—and a big thanks to Club Nevermore and to DJ 10.29, DJ Graveyard Gloria, and DJ Wilhelm for having me! It was great to see some of the regulars after such a long time, as well as meeting some new people. I hope the next event will be even better!
Half Machine Lip Moves is taking tonight off becaause I, Operator OT, am still a bit tired from last night’s Club Nevermore. We’ll be back on air next week for our 150th episode (which will also mark our fourth year on the air). Also, thanks to Club Nevermore for having me and to everybody who came out! I had a good time and I hope a good time was had by everybody who came out.
Club Nevermore, Arkansas’s one-and-only goth-industrial event, is returning to physical/in-person events this Saturday, June 12th at Area 51 in Sherwood. This one’s cyberpunk-themed and there will be sets by DJ 10.29, DJ Graveyard Gloria, DJ Operator, and DJ Wilhelm, plus a possible bonus set of harder EBM/aggrotech/power noise from Parabellum afterward. This starts at 8 PM. Masks are encouraged for the unvaccinated.
DJ 10.29 from Club Nevermore, Arkansas’s one-and-only goth-industrial event, came on the show to talk about Club Nevermore’s upcoming return to physical live events on June 12th and he picked some industrial tracks. We followed that with a set of darkwave and post-punk, including a premier of a brand new track from local artist Clusters of Fornication. We followed that up with some goth tracks. We played a set of synthpop/minimal wave in our midnight set, and we closed with ear-blistering psychedelic noise rock.
We started this show with a set of mostly new-ish post-punk tracks. Then we went into a set of heavy and hard industrial metal. That was followed with a set of post-punk tracks referencing or themed around summertime. We followed that up with a set of Chinese post-punk tracks. The midnight block was a couple of our favorite Les Rallizes Denudes tracks, and we wrapped up the show with a mix of shoegaze and ambient tracks.
We began this one with a mix of deathrock and post-hardcore. Then I played a batch of tracks I played during my Club Nevermore livestream set, which was also on World Goth Day. That was followed with a set of dark anarcho-punk, going into the area where punk and goth overlap. Then we wrapped up the show with a set of post-punk and darkwave.
Club Nevermore, Arkansas’s one-and-only goth-industrial event, will be doing the second part of this month’s Sequence event as a Twitch livestream on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 9 PM Central Time on Club Nevermore’s Twitch channel. This stream will feature a style tutorial by the always fabulous DJ Dagger Dance, music reviews by our friends at Shadow Transmission’s On the Fringe, and DJ sets by DJ Hollow, DJ 10.29, and me (Operator OT), plus a goth-industrial trivia round.
We began this show with a mix of tracks, then kicked off the show with two sets in honor of Mother’s Day—one that leaned more towards goth, and another one that leaned more towards industrial and harder industrial. Then we finished the show with a set of power noise.
