Episode 185: 5/22/2022

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#185’ on it.

We returned to the air with an all goth, deathrock, darkwave, and post-punk show in honor of World Goth Day. We started with some new-ish tracks. We followed that up with a set of goth and deathrock tracks from Hamburg, Germany circa 1985-1991. After that we played a set of vampire-themed tracks for World Dracula Day. We followed that up with a set of tracks by bands from Mexico. The midnight block was a set of post-punk tracks, then we wrapped up the show with a set of ethereal goth and shoegaze tracks.

The Labyrinth is located at 619 South Spring Street in downtown Little Rock. Use the map below to get directions, but please note The Labyrith is not at the spot Google Maps shows; it’s actually between Electric Panther Tattoo and The Studio Theatre.

This is a modified Google Street View image showing the location of The Labyrinth. The Labyrinth is on the right hand side of the building. The place next to it in the photo is empty but it’s currently the Electric Panther Tattoo Shop.

This is is a modified Google Street View image to show you where The Labyrinth is because Google Maps directs to the Simmons Tower parking garage.

This is a flyer for Club Nevermore’s June event. The background is a neon pinkish-purple color.

At Area 51, 6511 Warden Road in Sherwoood, Arkansas. Saturday, June 11, 2022. Doors open at 8 PM, ages 21+ up. More info at clubnevermore.com.

There will also be live sets by Summore and Clusters of Fornication! This is going to be a big one! More info can be found on the Facebok post for the event!

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 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!
