NITE SCHOOL at Cheer Up Charlie’s

If you know, you know. To simply call this one a “show” is insufficient. Perhaps…a vibe, honoring all moods, styles, fashion, artistic expression from the darkest recesses of the spectrum. Live music and guest DJs are essential to the alchemy of NITE SCHOOL, but there’s more that emerges from this 2nd Thursday electronic dance soirée at Cheer Up Charlie’s. Thanks to the eclectic tastes of curator, host and DJ Scorpio (Sky Hutchens), each hand-picked selection for the monthly party perfectly fits the mood. Dark wave, cold wave, neu wave, no wave, grave wave…not enough room here to list each and every genre or nuance, but you’ll know the moment you enter and feel your black heart pierced.

Don’t miss the next NITE SCHOOL event tonight, Thursday June 9, featuring performances by Urban Heat (featured on today’s AMM), Rona Rougeheart‘s sin-sational SINE and Brooklyn-based dark synth warriors Shanghai Beach. The music starts at 8:30 p.m.
