Episode 166: 11/28/2021

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#166’ on it.

We began this show with a set of new darkwave and post-punk tracks, along with a brand new track by Zwaremachine. The second block was a set of tracks vaguely themed around gratefulness and Thanksgiving. The third set was themed around shopping and consumerism, in “honor” of Black Friday, Cyber Monday, etc. The fourth block was a set of hard and heavy noise rock, and the fifth block was a set of post-punk and darkwave. Then we closed the show with a set of ambient-leaning tracks.

I (Operator OT) don’t necessarily condone taking the directions to Area 51 that Google provides—Google’s directions might get you stuck in an alley without an easy way out. This is what I advise…

For those travelling from Little Rock, take I-30 north to I-40 East, then turn onto Highway 67/167 North. Take Exit 4, Brockington Road. Get in the left lane and go north till you reach the traffic light at Brookswood Road. Turn left and go south for two blocks to Warden Road, which is a one-way road (and the access road for Highway 67/167 South). Turn right onto Warden Road and go south for about half a mile. Area 51 will be in the strip mall on the right, between a car dealership and a Waffle House. Enter Area 51 by going into Alibis Bar, which does the admissions for Area 51.

For those travelling from North Little Rock, get on JFK Boulevard and go north till you reach East Kiehl Avenue. Turn right and go east, following the signs directing drivers to Highway 67/167 South, which will turn right onto Warden Road.

Or use the embedded Google Map below to find directions.
