And The Dance Goes On – Fall Mood 2016 [mixtape]

Every single Fall, without fail, my emotions start swirling around like fallen leaves caught in a brisk breeze. There is no rhyme or reason to it all either. It’s almost as if my mind decides to take an emotional dump on my logic and reason – thus bequeathing me with the daunting task of sorting through why I am feeling things I didn’t even care about not even a week ago. This time of year my emotions also like to rip open scars of wounds that (I thought) were healed. As if I didn’t…

Darkwave Battle Royale – Peter Murphy vs. Gary Numan

Friday December 4th, I went out to The Phantasy in Lakewood, OH once again for the latest installment of 9 of Clubs reunion night.  Three great DJ’s spinning a time warp vortex of the best 80’s and 90’s Goth, Industrial, House, New Wave and Darkwave music out there. Lots of Joy Division, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Thrill Kill Kult, Ministry, Front 242, and more.  It was by far the absolute best reunion night yet with music and attendance. I danced so much, I was sore the next day. Definitely…

Strangelove – A Depeche Mode Playlist

This post is a little overdue – by almost three weeks! My life has been crazy as of late, between work, moving, and organizing and promoting the first ever Punk Rock Flea Market in Lorain, Ohio that took place last weekend. The event was as success and I am able to breathe again. Anyways, I digress… A couple weeks ago, I ventured out to The Phantasy in Lakewood, OH and attended The Cure vs. Depeche Mode dance night. This (awesome amazing) night of music was DJ’d by Cleveland greats Tim Smith and Evan Nave….

Why Can’t I Be You? – A Cure playlist

I don’t go out to clubs as much as I used to, especially dance clubs. I find the music of today filled with so much auto-tuned and musical garbage. Even the Goth clubs are filled with this new trend of “dubstep”, which sounds like Transformers having sex. What’s worse are the younger generation Goth kids who chew on glow sticks and twirl LED balls and poi to the music. Yeah, ok, so I’ve become a cranky old Goth chick. In my defense, I’m an old school Goth or OG –…

Dead Souls – A New Wave, Darkwave, Gothic and Industrial Halloween [mixtape]

  Halloween greetings to you on this chilly and cloudy day – at least here in Northern Ohio. As promised yesterday in my first of two great Halloween playlists, I bring you installment #2 – a New Wave, Darkwave, Gothic and Industrial mixtape playlist for all of you children of the night! This playlist does steal a few selections from my Grimly Fiendish Halloween mixtape from last year – but I did my best to keep them to a minimum and instead use the extended or dance remix versions. No New Wave/Darkwave Halloween…
