[EVENT PLAYLIST] Cult Fiction Underground: June 23rd, 2012

This past Saturday night, I started a new kind of event here in Nashville, combining my love for cult horror films, stylish settings, and dark music. The idea was to bring goth, post-punk, deathrock, darkwave, and horror music to a more relaxed setting, away from the dance floors of night clubs, where song-selection could be based on what fit the atmosphere, rather than what might fill a dance floor.

The result was not unlike a live version of the first hour of "Out ov the Coffin," which is one reason that I'm posting this playlist here. Of course, this live version was thrice as long, and you could have a beer and hang out with like-minded people while you listened. The tone for the night is set by a movie screening, held in the theatre next door to the Underground Lounge. In this case, it was Richard Blackburn's 1973 atmospheric horror classic, "Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural," which won a lot of new fans that night.

To clear any confusion, the following playlist is not related to an episode that can be streamed or downloaded -- although a new podcast is coming later this week. The playlist below shows precisely what I played for the first installment of this event, so everyone can get a good idea of what this night is about.

For those who wish to go to a night like this: "It is happening again!" On Saturday, July 28th, I will return to Cult Fiction Underground. The movie that night will be Jean Rollin's bizarre French zombie film, "The Grapes of Death" (1978). Mark your calendar & Bring a friend. The film will start at 10pm, and the music will begin immediately after the screening.

Otherwise, here's what I played this past Saturday night. Each artist's name below is also a link:
