Voltaire will play for The Next Element at Ground Zero, this Friday.
Voltaire? the 18th century French philosopher?
No, the other one...http://www.voltaire.net
You may remember the graphic novel Chi-Chian, its dark and wormy artworks at odds with the candy-coloured comic books that generally populated the comic book shelves at Shinder's. This series has since been animated. It's pretty awesome.
See here for more on that : http://www.scifi.com/chichian
Or, you may have enjoyed Oh My Goth! Or Deady, The Malevolent Teddy.
Or, you know... his music.
He is a prolific artist in many mediums, and everything is always a great deal of fun - a strong body of evidence weighing against the notion that the gothic type is all mopey. He will be singing his songs for us all this Friday night.
Also performing - Lusurfer, "The World's Most Satanic Surf Rock Band"http://www.myspace.com/worshiplusurfer
Fashions from Apatico, Blasphemina's Closet, and Scoundrelle's Keep.
