Depeche Mode Tribute Night is July 3rd!

Our guest will be Jon Smith and we will never let you down. Here is the house where it all happens. Please be Dressed In Black again, but let us see you stripped down to the bone. John The Revelator, he’s a smooth operator, he’ll be DJing too. DJ Refugium will be playing the Angel, and we look forward to playing Music for the Masses!

Play for Today: a Cure Tribute

Hey you! Yes you, oh-ho, you the one that looks like Christmas, come over here and….

Saturday March 30th starting at 9 PM Luckey’s will be invaded by Cure fans. DJ Refugium, John The Revelator and Ultrajet will be pulling all of the rare vinyl from their various collections to bring you Cure songs you haven’t heard in years, probably, with excellent sound quality. Cure-related, side projects and other music of the era will also be played. VJ PTSD will provide a video wall of nonstop Cure footage culled from the past 30 years of concerts and promo releases. Spiky hair and lipstick very much encouraged. 

Luckey’s Club is located at 933 Olive Street in downtown Eugene. Cover is $2, 21+.

This is the playlist from a show by DJ Refugium from a couple of weeks ago, inspired by Synth Brittania, a documentary on early brit Synthpop and its evolution from New Wave. Latent 80’s airs every Sunday between 6 and 8 PM and you can stream it online. Enjoy ❤ Refugium

Less than a week till next Ghost House, hooray!


Next date is February 6th at the ever-awesome locals bar, Oak Street Speakeasy!

John The Revelator is out of town but DJs Spider and Abulikah will be on hand to help me out. 

There are rumors that DJ Owen, formerly of Hive in Portland, will be up from San Francisco in March. We hope so because he is amazing and we’ve missed him. 

Yet to be confirmed for sure, but Steampunk is coming up and this time around Luckey’s may be hosting the night. We thought a 100 year old bar might be an appropriate backdrop. 

Also coming soon, as in February 9th, Blairally Arcade will be hosting the Revelator and myself for an electro/80s/new wave night called Electric Dreams. It’s planned to be 99.9% vinyl. Hope to see some of you there. 

The gorgeous picture above is from the delectable book Japanese Goth, available on Amazon. I love seeing subcultures morph from place to place. This book has more than the expected Visual Kei and Alice & The Pirates photography, it’s also got the work of several visual artists whose work is breathtaking. 

Also want to mention that there has been a re-release of NamNamBuLu‘s first album on vinyl. As usual it’s a toss-up whether that package from Germany (which also includes a Funker Vogt single) will make it before next Wednesday, but if it does, you know what I’m playing…
