We began this show with a set of new darkwave and post-punk tracks, along with a brand new track by Zwaremachine. The second block was a set of tracks vaguely themed around gratefulness and Thanksgiving. The third set was themed around shopping and consumerism, in “honor” of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc. The fourth block was a set of hard and heavy noise rock, and the fifth block was a set of post-punk and darkwave.

We went back to the industrial grind for our post-Halloween show. Club Nevermore’s DJ 10.29 and DJ Wilhelm (who are also in the band 3num3rat0r) came by to talk about/promote Club Nevermore’s event on November 13, which will feature a performance by the band Unitcode:Machine. We started with some mostly new industrial tracks. We followed that with a set of melodic industrial and EBM, plus we chatted briefly with 3num3rat0r. That was followed with a set of hard and heavy industrial metal. Then we played a set of industrialized techno, a set of synthpop and darkwave at midnight, and we closed the show with a set of new tracks.

Note: we apologize for the sound of the segues. We had problems with the guest microphones and I tried to fix their sound as best as I could in post-production.
