S*PUNK! @ Chasers
The party monsters of local DJ collective Sadisco* aren't shy about their utter devotion to industrial music. They're slaves to the cacophonous grind of relentless electronically driven mayhem, brutal guitar hooks, and dystopian lyrics about dark lords and demons that only bands like Nachtmahr, Unter Null, and Fractured Transmission can deliver. Rivethead faves such as these have been featured at practically every Sadisco* party since the collective's founding in 2004, and this weekend's S*PUNK! is no exception. The sexually ambiguous event (which likely is to feature manties and other revealing outfits being sported by both male and female attendees) is being held in conjunction with the Eternal Legends of Metropolis Records Tour and will star Midwestern industrial madman Caustic and hard-charging trio Everything Goes Cold. Mess & Phetamine, the raucous side project of Sadisco* czar Squalor, also will perform. Earplugs are necessary; manties are optional.
