Episode 161: 10/17/2021

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#161’ on it.

We started this episode with a block of hot new darkwave, post-punk, and synthpop tracks. We followed that up with a mix of recent and new post-punk and darkwave tracks. Things ground to a halt and we went into a spooky lo-fi, surrealistic, and haunted-sounding direction for the rest of the show. We played a set of no-wave and experimental in the third block. Our fourth block was a set of eerie-sounding noise. The midnight block began with a haunted track and we went into a surrealistic avante-garde direction. Then we finished the show with a set of warbly astral sounds from inner ambient space.

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.
