Music event: Mis-Fest

Misery of Sound is a Blackpool, England, Goth, Horrorpunk and Deathrock club that occurs monthly. This year the organisers have decided to really go for it and have a Festival in June. The Friday night (20th June 2008) will be a club night – all DJ all night – and the Saturday (21st June 2008) will see 8 bands starting at 4PM and going late into the night.

The line-up is looking mighty fine – though there are a couple of bands I haven’t seen previously:

Danse of the Dead – a folk/Goth local band, really worth a watch
The Cemetary Girlz - Over from France, one of the bands I don’t know
UFX – sleaze rock, I can’t say too much as the lead singer is an old friend, but they are good
The Eternal Fall – a Spanish Trad Goth band, I saw them last year and they are fantastic
Pink Hearse – a local all girl horrorpunk band who do a cracking version of Creature of the Night
Eyaculacion Post Mortem – Over from Spain, the other band I have not seen before
Screaming Banshee Aircrew – a fantastic Goth act with a touch of Vaudeville and a sense of humour
Zombina and the Skeletones – the mighty Zombina returns and if you haven’t seen them, you should – technically classed as horrorpunk they transcend pigeon holes and once covered Strange Love from the Lust for a Vampire soundtrack.

Pre-ordered tickets are £15, an absolute bargain. Plus I’ll be there, so if you spot me say hello.
