Episode 184: 5/8/2022

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#184’ on it.

We started this show with a block of tracks featuring the late Gabe Serbian, and then we played a couple of darkwave tracks by artists that are playing shows in Central Arkansas in the near future. That was followed with a set of industrial and post-punk tracks in honor of Mother’s Day. Then we played a set of stompy EBM tracks. We followed that up with a set of industrialized techno tracks. The midnight block was a set of noise rock, then we curled up with a set of comfy synth tracks at the end of the show.

Flyer for Club Nevermore’s May 14, 2022 event. It says, “‘Into the Woods. An Evening of Dark Fantasy and Attire and Spooky Music. At Area 51, 6511 Warden Road, in Sherwood, Arkansas. $10 cover. Ages 21+ up only. Doors at 8 PM. More info at clubnevermore.com”

This month’s Club Nevermore is “Into the Woods: An Evening of Dark Fantasy and Attire and Spooky Music”. It will be at Area 51, located at 6511 Warden Road in Sherwood. This will have sets by Nevermore’s residents DJ 10.29, DJ Graveyard Gloria, DJ Wilhelm, and Operator OT.

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.

We recommend consulting IDriveArkansas.com for road conditions, especially if you plan to drive on I-30, which is a total mess to drive on at the moment.
