|FRENCHY AND THE PUNK (band – New York)
Dark times make for dark songs. Zen Ghost, the seventh album by folk/postpunk/cabaret duo Frenchy and the Punk, was written and recorded during the pandemic-induced downtime of 2020-2021. It finds their already shadowy sound taking an even darker turn, while still offering plenty of opportunities to dance.
|THANATOS (musician – Chicago)
Vocalist/guitarist Patrick Ogle founded Thanatos in the early ’80s, quickly becoming a mainstay of Projekt Records with his blend of darkwave, folk, and goth rock. He will give a career-spanning, solo acoustic performance.
|DAVE DRAMEDY (musician – Los Angeles)
Most recently seen in Pittsburgh playing bass for Caroline Blind at Danse Macabre 4, Dave Dramedy’s solo material is guitar-driven dark rock with hints of western and punk.
|Cadaver Kelly (DJ – Pittsburgh)
The YouTube star and underground journalists makes educational goth talk content as well as album reviews, music release announcements, and live events coverage. She has recently been stretching her DJ wings and will spin before and between bands.
|Sundae Service (performance art – Pittsburgh)
This multi-talented lady does everything from burlesque dancing and circus acts to singing and jewelry design. She’ll be conjuring up a little vintage gothic charm and grace for us.
|Arts & Crafts: Botanica & Occult Shop (Tarot readings, vending – Pittsburgh)
Arts & Crafts is short for “Dark Arts and Witch Crafts.” The east-end shop will offer a selection of their products, which include items used in rituals. Beth, who specializes in helping people find the answers in their relationships, will offer 10-minute Tarot card readings for $15.
