Resurrection's 7 Sermons of Flesh @ Club Palazzo

Every time industrial dance DJs Self.Destrukt and DJ Defense.Mekanizm throw one their monthly ResurrectioN affairs, a few things are guaranteed: The soundtrack will be harsh, the vibe will be debaucherous, and the patrons will be freakishly fun. The latter will be especially true during the Friday, August 2, edition of the goth/industrial dance event at Club Palazzo, 710 North Central Avenue, as its usually kooky coterie of nightcrawlers and characters will be augmented with a slew of unique guests. ResurrectioN's organizers have given the party a scandalous "7 Sermons* of Flesh" subtitle and are bringing in both fiends and friends alike for the event, including renowned Canadian industrial bands Dym and Fractured, as well as goth dance diva DJ Starr, for a special sets. The members of notorious local industrial DJ collective Sadisco* (a.k.a. Sadistic Disco) — including Vex, 5arah, //She//, and Blonde N0ize — will invade the club and stage spin sessions throughout the evening. The collective's longtime czar, Squalor, who recently has been battling cancer with the assistance of his nearest and dearest, will also perform with his side project Mess &* Phetamine. (A donation jar will also be available at the party for those who want to assist the DJ in his fight and help cover the cost of his treatments.) The party starts at 9 p.m. and runs into the wee hours. Admission is $6. See www.facebook.com/groups/resurrectionphoenix.
