We followed that up with a set of loud and nasty noise rock tracks. Then we played a set of power electronics. We cooled the airwaves down with some minimal wave and synthpop tracks, then we closed out the show with a set of shoegaze and ambient tracks.

This was a pre-recorded show, because I, Operator OT, needed to prep for the Suicide Commando/Luna 13 show that happened on Monday, July 4th. The show started with a new track, an older track about America, and a couple of tracks by Luna 13 and Suicide Commando—to get geared up for their upcoming show. That set was followed by a block of industrial tracks; which was followed with a set of industrial metal; an EBM set; and a set of goth, deathrock, and post-punk tracks, all with an underlying theme of America and collapsing empires. Then we finished the show with a set of shoegaze, etc. to wind down the show.

We started this show with a set of new industrial bangers. That was followed with a set of tracks that are too hard for synthpop but not quite hard enough for EBM. Then we played a block of tracks by Luna13 and Suicide Commando, who are playing a show in Little Rock on Monday, July 4, 2022. That was followed with a set of angry and wrathful tracks by women/women-fronted bands because of a bullshit event that shouldn’t have happened. The midnight block was a set of deathrock and deathrock-influenced punk tracks, and we finished the show with a set of shoegaze tracks.
