Angelspit
and
The Gothsicles (official)

and special guest
Violet Void

Doors @ 8pm...

.::ANGELSPIT::.
Angelspit are a glorious pounding brutality from Zoog Von Rock and George Bikos – who’s high energy assault have earned them the reputation of being one of the most innovative alternative bands in the current crop.
Synthesizers are slain, drum machines burn and samplers tortured as viscous guitars and corruptive beats are added to the mix.

.::THE GOTHSICLES::.
In recent years, Chicago's ultrasweaty industrial dance dorkstorm, THE GOTHSICLES, have played some of the most talked about live shows at some of the most premiere industrial music festivals around the globe. Compounding a ruinous mix of crass humor, video games and geek culture with an unapologetic EBM affinity, The Gothsicles' 2011 release "Industrialites & Magic" (WTII Records) reached the #1 spot on Amazon.com for "Most Downloaded" in the "Goth & Industrial" category.


TIX: (On-Sale SOON!) Advance $10; Day of Show $13
