Week of October 26th – Blotter

By | blotter, events | No Comments

It’s halloween week. Halloween is friday. This will be a fun week.



Every monday there is a night at Meat & Potatoes downtown, with rotating djs. This place has awesome food, and they always have cheap specials during this night. And there’s
no cover. SO really, it’s a no brainer of a night for mondays in pittsburgh, if you’re up for going out. Tonight is Hank D, and his 2c:

This coming Monday is the 4th monday of October, so it’s time for another installment of my monthly residency at Meat and Potatoes. Of course, the delicious late night menu will be offered, which is now a poutine menu, plus great drink specials as usual, to go along with the eclectic live mix I provide. A little Lykki Li mixed with some James Brown, and some Pharell thrown in for good measure. This monty I’ll be dropping in some Halloween jams too.

Week of October 19th: Blotter

By | blotter | No Comments

Looking at picking this back up as October is typically super busy and full of events. Being busy myself has put a hamper on knocking
these out every week. But here goes. Picks for what to get into this week:



A once in a lifetime event for Steel City! Legendary Cold Meat Industry artists Brighter Death Now. Deutsch Nepal (Official) and Raison d’être (official) land on US shores. It’s a Swedish Invasion!

BDN is one of the single most influential industrial acts of the past two decades. Responsible for the coinage of the genre that is known as “death industrial”, Roger Karmanik — founder of the seminal record label COLD MEAT INDUSTRY — has provided the world with his own brand of cold, dismal and disgruntled power electronics/death industrial.

Herr Generalstaab Lina Baby Doll has been active as DEUTSCH NEPAL for more than two decades, having evolved over time into a sort of “industrial crooner”, standing at the front and belting out tribal anthems over martial rhythms. Cheers to the end!

raison d’être (Swe)
Peter Andersson stands as one of the most important artists working under the “dark ambient” monicker, crafting some of the genre’s most incredibly somber and emotionally charged work. Raison d’être is the sound of all hope nullified.

Requiem (US)
Pittsburgh native David Graham’s project Requiem has been active since the mid to late 90s, pulling in influences from all across the industrial board. Twisted and dense dark ambient industrial soundscapes.

Shock Frontier (US)
Pittsburgh and Ohio based dark ambient/death industrial released by Malignant Records. This will be their first official live performance. Music for a crumbling society and born from a hatred for the human animal.

$10 21+

SCHWARZ is a true inspirational club king for the future. On the mic he exists in a place between Andrew WK and Fatman Scoop. On the internet his original tracks and remixes reinvent genres and transcend contexts. He has been featured in SPIN, FACT, NOISEY and more.

ABDU ALI is a musician who raps, sings, and chants over unorthodox beats that smash together influences from club, noise and rap to create a singular style that feels fresh and boundless. Abdu Ali’s musical force has pushed him to be a must-see performer, delivering riveting and cathartic shows. He has been featured in THE FADER, STEREOGUM, COMPLEX and more.

KILBOURNE is an emerging club producer whose frenetic tracks and remixes are constantly pushing the limit of the dance world. She has done mixes for THUMP and DIS, while also playing guitar in hardcore punk/grind band Pyka.
Together on tour Schwarz, Kilbourne, and Abdu Ali, are an enchanting and dynamic trio, showcasing as compelling symbols of the current state of DIY club, punk, and rap culture. BE MOTIVATED.

Everybody knows it’s easier to pull off that sexy shrimp costume with something substantial in your belly. And you need a steady hand to carve that heirloom pumpkin you spent $50 on, and you’re not going to have an easy time pulling that off after all that yellow 5 and sugar. Maybe you just need some fresh eyes on those neon cat whiskers you’re trying to pull off.
Either way, stop by for some wicked pho and fall pierogi- you can get a to-go in your pillowcase but we don’t recommend it.

$10 TAKEOUT (5 pierogi + bowl of pho)

As always, all vegan.

Thu Oct 16th DARKWAVE night w/ Cutups @ Gus’s

By | audio | One Comment

I’ll be guest djing at Ez Lou’s “Darkwave” night at Gus’s on Oct 16th.
It’s a weekly that features mostly the classics of goth / post punk / new wave,
but also weekly guest djs doing their own take on dark music, which is pretty cool.

I’ve played twice before and done multi-hour sets, which are always enjoyable.
I expect to do an hour of goth, deathrock, and post punk, and an hour of synth wave, witchhouse,
and more dancefloor material.
