BLOOD HANDSOME ~ RYDER HOUSTON ~ COLD CHOIR ~ KISS OF THE WHIP

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 6:30 PM Show: 7:00 PM BLOOD HANDSOME (Los Angeles)Los Angeles darkwave act, Blood Handsome, is the solo project of Gerren Reach (Young & Cold Records). Blood Handsome’s sound is an eclectic mix of retro soundscapes, nostalgic synths, and cinematic undertones. Pulling from his post-punk roots and mixing his moody instrumentation, along with brooding vocals, Blood Handsome continues to evolve and mold his unique sound. His latest album, A New Calm, was released last year.https://bloodhandsome.bandcamp.com    RYDER HOUSTON (Philly)Ryder Houston is an American filmmaker and musician originally from Dallas, TX now residing in Philadelphia. As much as his evocative sound dotes on alternative pop acts Depeche Mode, Garbage, and Nine Inch Nails, his inky discography continues veering deeper and deeper into a groovy electronica allusive to late ‘90s Massive Attack and Sneaker Pimps, his spidery vocals weaving clichés of lust and rock ‘n’ roll menace anew.https://ryderhouston.bandcamp.comCOLD CHOIR (Asheville, NC)Cold Choir launched from the sheer desire to create darkwave, dance music, with irreverent self-expression, poetry, and often-socially conscious subject matter. Mario (synth/production) and Franky M’s (singer/songwriter) music is ingrained in EBM, disco goth, early 80s electro, freestyle, and industrial, accompanied by a stirring vocal.https://coldchoirmusic.bandcamp.com   DJ SET – KISS OF THE WHIP (Baltimore) DJ set by Baltimore’s favorite DJ, Tristan, from Kiss of the Whiphttps://kissofthewhip.bandcamp.com/

Will Joseph Cook (Cambridge Hall)

**All Ages** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM Will Joseph CookWill Joseph Cook makes music that will put a smile on your face. The indie-pop dreamer’s third album, Every Single Thing, is an exercise in joy: a collection of unashamed love songs, it’s a bubbling and exuberant reminder to cherish the present. “I felt that from a cultural perspective, not that many people write about love in a positive way or from a perspective of being happy anymore,” Cook says. “Most of the sincere, biographical writing these days is about a break up or the pursuit of love, whereas I just wanted to celebrate the moment I was in rather than looking forward or backwards. I wanted to see what a sincere love song sounded like in 2021 and share what I was feeling. All of the songs are real in that respect. They’re all based on my life.” Aside from being in love and releasing a new album, Cook has bountiful reasons to celebrate this moment in time. The past 24 months have seen his life change exponentially. After he released his second album, 2020’s chirpy yet reflective Something To Feel Good About, one of his songs, the glimmering and breezy “Be Around Me,” went viral on TikTok. This wasn’t just viral, though: for weeks the cutesy bridge of “Be Around Me” was inescapable, becoming one of the platform’s most popular sounds with over a million videos made using it. “A good chunk of the top 200 videos will have had millions of views, too,” Cook says, still in disbelief. “So how many times was it heard? It’s kind of magical in that respect. Also, I had no control over it. Even if I deleted it, it’s part of the internet. It’s in TikTok’s DNA. It’s not mine anymore.” Such an explosive response to his music was validating for Cook, who says that he’d been feeling a bit of self-doubt about his place in music before “Be Around Me” blew up. Why? Because despite his young age, the 24-year-old is a little bit of a music industry veteran. Born and raised in Tunbridge Wells in the south east of England, Cook has been involved in music since he was a teenager, gigging locally and uploading music to YouTube and Soundcloud. His songs about the tumult and technicolour of teenage life captured the attention of managers and before he knew it, he had signed a major label record deal by the age of 17.https://willjosephcook.co.uk/

IAMX (The Loft)

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM IAMXTransformation is at the core of Chris Corner’s music and outlook. Ever since leaving wildly successful trip-hop group Sneaker Pimps, Corner’s process of becoming IAMX beginning in 2004 has been theatrical, transcendent, and communal. Androgynous and visceral, IAMX has metamorphosed from small-town blue-collar kid to international pop star in the late 1990’s to creator of raw art that disrupts gender and genre in the 2000’s. Fuelling electronic experimentation with punk energy and confessional lyricism, Corner’s dark alternative electronic sound, fashion, performances, videos, and persona are larger than life, iconoclastic, and shockingly intimate.https://iamxmusic.com/
