Something so dark ...so sinister has arrived but it’s only happening once a month, blogspot readers.
SouthSide highly recommends checking out the latest dance party to rock Chicago’s late night music scene at Lakeview’s Elbo Room. It’s called :::Sinister::: and it’s taking over the underbelly of this venue from midnight until closing time (3a) every last Saturday of the month. This free event, blogspot readers, will mesh together artists like Red Flag, NIN, Front Line Assembly and many more creating a broad genre of dark dance music spun by local DJs – Boy Alberto (of Synthetic) and Circuitry (of Cybernetic Organisms). And just like SouthSide’s other favorite dance party, it’s totally request friendly.
The first :::Sinister::: dance party was recently held within the underbelly of Elbo Room after a long night of thrash/heavy metal performances from such bands like Bloodletter and Walking Shapes. And all it took was a quick change with the lighting to immerse its attendees into a musical world of darkness and sinisterly vibrating industrial sounds. It may have been a sparse attendance, blogspot readers, SouthSide wasn’t afraid to dance alone on the floor ...even while sporting a cane. This reviewer didn’t care she might had to take the lead. She was there to party amidst the electro glow as Circuitry entertained the few that remained within the basement “cave”. It may have been a rough start but this reviewer hopes to see more attending this free event in the coming month and beyond.
Embrace it, blogspot readers, :::Sinister::: is here to stay.
:::Sinister::: happens again at Elbo Room on 26 April.
Until next time, support your local scene,
