Episode 158: 9/26/2021

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#158’ on it.

We started this episode with tracks by local darkwave artists who will be playing a streaming benefit show this Saturday (October 2, 2021). We followed that with a set of noise rock and no wave, including a couple of artists playing at this year’s Valley of the Vapors Independent Music Festival. We followed that with a set of dark punk and deathrock tracks with a vaguely autumnal feel. After that was a set of autumn-themed dark folk tracks. Our midnight set was a tribute to our feline friends, and we closed the show with a set of experimental and ambient tracks themed around fall.

Club Nevermore logo, which is a skull with a silhouette of a raven inside it, in green text. The text says, “He Haunting Season - A Halloween Celebration. Saturday, October 9, 2021. Doors at 8 PM, $10 cover. Ages 21+. 4 DJs spinning goth+industrial all night, plus special special burlesque performance by Jezabelle Jaxxx, a coffin photo booth, ghoulish good bags, and costume with prizes! Note: proof of covid19 vaccination or a 48-hour negative covid test is required for entry.

Club Nevermore—Arkansas’s one-and-only monthly goth-industrial event—is coming up on Saturday, October 9, 2021 at Area 51, located at 6511 Warden Road in Sherwood. This is Nevermore’s Halloween event, with a costume contest, cool spooky tunes spun by Club Nevermore’s resident DJs, and a special burlesque show by Jezebelle Jaxxx!

Note: proof of covid19 vaccination or a 48-hour negative covid test is required for entry. We recommend taking a picture of your vaccination card and putting it on your phone.

Area 51 is at 6511 Warden Road in Sherwood, which is about 10-15 minutes out of Little Rock. We advise against taking the directions Google Maps gives because you may get stuck in the alley between Area 51 and Waffle House with no way to get through if somebody is blocking it with their car.

If going to Area 51 from Little Rock we recommend taking I-30 North to I-40 East. (If you’re going there from Conway or points west of Little Rock then simply take I-40 East towards Little Rock, Memphis, etc.) Get into one of the left lanes and take Exit 155 for 67/167 North towards Jacksonville and the Little Rock Air Force Base. Go north, then take Exit 4 for Brockington/Brookswood Road. Go down to the light, then turn left. Go two blocks till you reach Warden Road, then go south for about three-quarters of a mile. Area 51 is in a strip mall between a car dealership and a Waffle House on the right hand side of the road. Enter Area 51 by going into Alibis, the bar next door.

Ones traveling from North Little Rock can get on JFK Boulevard and go north till reaching East Kiehl Avenue. Travel east on East Kiehl Avenue, following signs for Highway 67/167 South, which leads to Warden Road. Go south on Warden Road for about a mile; Area 51 will be on the right.
