Episode 186: 5/29/2022

Half Machine Lip Moves logo with ‘#186’ on it.

We began the show with a set of tracks by darkwave and post-punk artists coming to the area in the near future. The following four blocks were a mix of industrial, goth, darkwave, post-punk, and synthwave tracks that I (Operator OT) played in my sets at last Saturday’s Club Nevermore Cenotaph event. Then we wrapped up the show with a set of summer-themed goth, shoegaze, and ambient tracks to mark the unofficial start of summertime.

This is a flyer for Club Nevermore’s June event. The background is a neon pinkish-purple color. There is a skull with a raven in the upper left corner and the text says ‘Club Nevermore proudly presents darkwave synthpop act Summore with special guest Clusters of Fornication, plus DJs 10.29, Graveyard Gloria, Operator OT, Wilhelm, and guest DJs Hollow and DJ James. 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.

June’s Club Nevermore is on Saturday, June 11 at Area 51 in Sherwood. This one will have goth-industrial sets by Nevermore’s resident DJs 10.29, Graveyard Gloria, Operator OT, and Wilhelm, plus a guest set by DJ James and the return of DJ Hollow! 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!
