Back in July, Expatriarch hosted «MORT À LA DIFFÉRENCE» as a musical moratorium on the outdated gender binary system. But like Jason and Freddy, the damn thing just won’t stay dead! So on October 29th, we’re all putting on our Halloween costumes, and we’re taking an axe to all those Axe Body Spray billboards to build a sacrificial bonfire for St. Dr. Frank-N-Furter, creating the soundtrack to our own unisex utopia.
Headlining is ex-Atari Teenage Riot vocalist and anarcho-feminist Hanin Elias, performing cuts from her new album Get it Back, assisted by scratch DJ That Fucking Sara and beatboxer Eliot von Bummtschack.
Also on stage will be Vienna’s very hairy electro-pop artist Crazy Bitch in a Cave singing songs from her new debut full-length Particles. After previously collaborating with Xiu Xiu, she produced the album herself and had it mixed down by techno veteran Patrick Pulsinger, last seen working on the latest from Hercules & Love Affair.
Local boy-band/girl-group drag troupe †DRESSER will rage against the Gaga with their witch-hip-house jams.
Megg Morales, performance artist and vocalist from S0S0SAI, will transform herself into a burlesque robot in zombie drag.
Behind the decks will be Expatriarch roster DJs Dickey Doo and Joey Hansom – recently heard remixing R.E.M., Peaches, Light Asylum, SSION and Kool Thing – playing haunted house, monster mash-ups and other transgenre selections. And keeping the darkness in full effect will be DJs Lazare & Neue K, best known for their long-running synth/minimal wave party TIQ (Tanz im Quadrat).
VJ Super will provide spooky ambience with her video installations, and Svetlana Pall Mall of the Tranny Olympics will be the evening’s ghostly hostess.
A limited number of reduced-price pre-sale tickets are available via KOKA36 – a wise idea, since last time we reached capacity and had to turn people away at the door. And dammit, it’s Halloween, so come in costume, or we’re going to tax you for your laziness. And don’t try to convince the door person you’re dressed as a queer hipster.
