Sept 1 – Nocturna w/ DJ Scary Lady Sarah & Autumn live (Chicago)

Nocturna, now in its 30th year, is an 18+ dark alternative dance night held once every other month (more or less) in Chicago. DJ Scary Lady Sarah spins a highly request-driven mix of current & classic goth, industrial, post-punk, deathrock, ethereal, shoegaze, new wave, ebm, darkwave, dark indie & more. Come dance until dawn!

• Special live musical guest AUTUMN will perform at 11pm.
From Minneapolis, Autumn is touring in support of the new album Chandelier, out now on Chicago’s Sett Records. The music of Autumn has been heard at Nocturna ever since the early 90’s so whether you know their name or not, chances are you have danced to their songs. They received an amazing response when they recently opened for Clan of Xymox in Chicago & we are very excited to have them grace the big Metro stage. Arrive early to enjoy a live set of dark music by truly gifted artists!

“autumn’s music sounds as fresh as ever… underlin(ing) the dark emotional underbelly of alternative music, finding a sweet spot between post-punk, ethereal wave, and shimmery goth rock.” – Big Takeover Magazine

• Pleased to present a performance by tribal fusion belly dance ensemble Read My Hips during the night!

• GIVEAWAYS for this night will be announced soon!

• VENDORS for this night include:

Dreaded Jenocide: The Place for Lovely Spooky Things offering spooky barrettes, accessories, makeup, clothing, homewares & more!

– More TBA!

• The Candy Cauldron will be fully stocked & on stage- help yourself!

At Metro Chicago, 3730 N. Clark Street
10:30pm – 5am / 18+ / $12.
