Episode 162: 10/24/2021

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#162’ on it.

This episode was our yearly dark ambient and dark atmospheric soundscape special. We began with a set of tracks by the late Andrea Meyer Haugen (AKA, Nebelhexe). Then we began our descent into the underworld of dark ambient. That was followed with a set themed around empty spaces and abandoned places. Then we played dark ambient tracks inspired by the vastness of outer space. We went into a set of morbid ambient and death industrial at midnight, and finished the show with a set inspired by sleep.

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.
