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.
The Suicide Commando show on July 4th has been moved to a new venue! The show has been moved to The Rev Room, 300 President Clinton Avenue, in downtown Little Rock. Tickets purchased for the show are valid at the new venue, and are still on sale at clubnevermore.com.
We began this show with some new tracks and songs by artists playing shows in the area soon. The following two blocks were the tracks I, Operator OT, played in my DJ set at Club Nevermore’s event on June 11, 2022, which was a mix of goth, darkwave, post-punk, and industrial. Then we played a set of tracks with a beach and summer theme, in honor of summer solstice. The midnight block was a set of industrialized techno tracks. Then we finished the show with a set of shoegaze and ambient tracks by artists or bands fronted by Black/African Americans, in honor of Juneteenth.
We started this show with a set of darkwave and industrial bands that are playing shows in the Central Arkansas area soon. We followed that with another set of tracks by Mexican goth and darkwave bands. The block after that was a set of weirdo industrial metal tracks, which was followed by a set of synthpop and darkwave songs. The midnight block took a weird turn we played tracks from first and second wave emo bands, and revealed the hidden and forgotten histories of a few bands out there today. Then we closed out the show with a set of spacey and psychedelic post-punk and experimental noise.
I, Operator OT, wanted to say thanks to everyone who came out to Saturday’s Club Nevermore event! I hope a good time was had by all! I also want to thank Club Nevermore for having me, the other Nevermore DJs, and the bands Clusters of Fornication and Summore!
Here is my setlist from that night:
There will be no show tonight. I, Operator OT, cannot do the show tonight because I must be at work early Monday morning. We’ll be back next week at the usual time and place, 10 PM-1 AM Central Time, on KUHS-LP 102.5 FM Hot Springs or streaming at kuhsradio.org.
We began the show with a set of tracks by darkwave and post-punk artists coming to the area in the near future. The following four blocks were a mix of industrial, goth, darkwave, post-punk, and synthwave tracks that I (Operator OT) played in my sets at last Saturday’s Club Nevermore Cenotaph event. Then we wrapped up the show with a set of summer-themed goth, shoegaze, and ambient tracks to mark the unofficial start of summertime.
We returned to the air with an all goth, deathrock, darkwave, and post-punk show in honor of World Goth Day. We started with some new-ish tracks. We followed that up with a set of goth and deathrock tracks from Hamburg, Germany circa 1985-1991. After that we played a set of vampire-themed tracks for World Dracula Day. We followed that up with a set of tracks by bands from Mexico. The midnight block was a set of post-punk tracks, then we wrapped up the show with a set of ethereal goth and shoegaze tracks.
