We returned to the studio for the first since the beginning of March, and chaos ensued. We were joined by Danny from KUHS-LP’s new show Outrage Radio (and a new Finally Friday co-host).

The fourth set was a mix of synthpop, darkwave, and post-punk. The fifth set was some autumn-themed experimental tracks, and we closed the show with a mix of comfy synth, experimental, and ambient.

We played a set of fairly recent darkwave tracks at midnight, and wrapped up with a set of shoegaze and ambient tracks.

We started this show with some batch of sort-of timely industrial, post-punk, and hardcore punk tracks. That was followed with Operator OT’s sets from the Club Nevermore livestream on September 12, which were mixes of post-punk, goth, darkwave, and industrial. We followed that with a set of piping-hot industrial tracks. The last hour of the show was a mix of autumn-themed post-punk and ambient tracks in honor of fall equinox.
