The undead will be rising from the grave tomorrow evening and stumbling their way towards downtown Phoenix, looking satisfy their unending hunger for brains. Or at least that's what the DJs and party monsters of Sadisco* told us will happen during the latest edition of their monthly freak fest tomorrow night at Homme Lounge (138 West Camelback Road, 602-234-3023)
The theme for the party is "DJ Zombie Face Off" and will feature dozens of rivetheads and other goth groupies reenacting Dawn of the Dead by dressing in ripped and bloodied clothing, as well as the resident Sadisco spinners (Squalor, ///she///, 5arah, $&M, and Blonde NOize) blasting their usual mix of Industrial, EBM, noise, electronica, and harsh dance music. And for those who'd like to try their hand at doing the same, the event will serve as an "open call" for wanna-be DJs, who can sign up for slots lasting three songs each. Doors open at 8 p.m. with an $8 cover charge.
By the way, next month's theme will be the depravity-filled Sadisgula Orgy of Bacchus & Venus (inspired by the reign of debaucherous Roman emperor Caligula), with the David Lynch-esque Lost*Velvet Sadisco following in July.
