Night Sky Productions is gothic and industrial concert and event promotion in Pittsburgh, PA.
Founded in 1997 by Kelly Litzenberger (then Kelly Ashkettle), Night Sky Productions’ original run yielded 47 events in 6 years. Artists booked included Alien Sex Fiend, Rasputina, Gitane DeMone, Switchblade Symphony, The Cruxshadows, Voltaire, Faith and the Muse, Bella Morte, VNV Nation, Apoptygma Berzerk, Funker Vogt, haujobb, Stromkern, and more. (See Past Events.)
After moving to Salt Lake City, UT in 2002, Kelly worked on the Dark Arts Festival, booking acts such as David J. and London After Midnight. She also independently produced 10 events in 7 years, first as gothbandphotos.com and then as Rising Moon Productions. Artists booked included The Last Dance, De/Vision, Voltaire, Ego Likeness, and Android Lust.
After returning to Pittsburgh in 2012, Kelly co-produced several dark music events including the Ceremony Reunion before deciding in 2015 to once again take up the name of Night Sky Productions and return to booking national and international bands.
The primary mission of Night Sky Productions is to produce concerts for dark music acts that would not otherwise be booked in Pittsburgh, particularly goth and darkwave artists.
