On October 21st and 22nd, the Cloak & Dagger Festival is being held to celebrate everything that is dark and wonderful. The Globe and Palace Theaters on Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles will host bands of all genres, whose music comes from the shadows. The lineup is ridiculous and varied.
If your taste is old-school goth, headliners The Jesus and Mary Chain and Poptone (featuring Daniel Ash and Kevin Haskins of Bauhaus and Love & Rockets fame) will get you pogoing. If you like the darkwave movement big hitters Com Truise, Xombi, Steve Moore and Ssleeperhold will be there to bathe you in their analog waveforms. If you prefer things louder, industrial kings KMFDM and noise rockers HEALTH will pummel your eardrums. If you are more a dark sythpop fan She Wants Revenge (Adam Bravin is one of the promoters of Cloak and Dagger) and TR/ST will lure you in, with their seductive vocals.
Doors open at 5PM and the show goes until dawn. A strict dress code will be enforced. All black of course. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Friday August 4th at 10AM. But you can get yours now by using the presale code CLOAKFLY, here.
