Many things are happening in ghost world. Here’s a convenient list of upcoming events:
July 7th at 9 PM is a Ghost House Retrospective, featuring DJs Spidersound and Perfidia with resident Refugium. We will be playing sets from the request lists of the past 6 years and taking current requests. This will be the last Thursday for a while, so if that night works best for you please come take advantage of it.
July 28th is Black Rainbow, a queer dark electro night that takes place at the Wayward Lamb. DJs John The Revelator and Refugium. Though the classics of the canon can be heard here sometimes, the emphasis is on newer music which may or may not be industrial/ goth/ etc. depending on one’s parameters. The aesthetic is dark, though, and Ghost House regulars are emphatically welcome.
August 5th, a FRIDAY, Ghost House returns with guest djs to be announced– but probably not our usual stalwarts. Look for deep cuts and weird bands on this one.
September 3rd, a SATURDAY, finally! We will be moving to Saturdays from this night forward, with much relief. This means that John The Revelator can come back into the fold.
September 9th, a Friday, THE SPIRITUAL BAT (from Italy) and BLACK MAGDALENE (from Eugene with DJ Refugium spinning sets in & around. The Spiritual Bat is the most legitimate deathrock/ traditional goth band I’ve seen come through these parts and you owe it to yourself to mark this on the calendar if you’re one of the people who knows what 4AD is and can tell the difference between Rozz and Valor. They aren’t as well known in the US as they are in Europe, where they have been on the bill of festivals such as the Wroclaw Castle Party and Wave Gothik Treffen as well as touring extensively to play for appreciative audiences. We are lucky to be on their tour for a second time.
And finally Saturday, October 1st marks the Return of Owen. Not seen in these parts since the early days of Ghost House, he is a regular at Hive (Portland) and Dark Shadows (San Francisco). John The Revelator and I agree that he is one of our favorite djs ever.
