Episode 176: 3/6/2022

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#176’ on it.

We started this show off with a mix of industrial, darkwave, and post-punk tracks. Then we got things going with a set of synthpop. The block after that was a set of post-punk, goth, and darkwave by Ukrainian bands. Then we put on a set of experimental, power electronics, and harsh noise walls just because we could. The midnight set was one of old and new industrial new tracks with a theme (war). Then we closed the show with a block of shoegaze tracks, because that’s why I’ve been feeling lately.

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.
