Villains Wear Black

By: Laurie Gallardo

Something wicked this way comes. Reach for the black ensemble in your wardrobe and join the fiends.

If you’re in the know (really, if your entire closet contains mostly, if not all, black clothing), you may have seen the dark and decadent announcements for Villains Wear Black making your social media feeds far more fascinating. Villains Wear Black got its start as a networking group for Austin-based band SINE, but as interest grew, it eventually evolved into a television series on Austin Music Television’s Channel 16. Led by songwriter, musician and producer Rona Rougeheart (SINE), the series explores the more eclectic, darker side of music, film, art and fashion.

All genres of music are welcome to this unique series, and this week, you the viewer will experience the alchemy on Villains Wear Black: Episode 4, putting the dark spotlight on Austin-based artists. The bill includes Missio, Mobley, Peelander-Z, Pleasure Venom, BLXPLTN, Blacklight, Bloody Knives, Curse Mackey, SINE and more.

Spend the night with Villains Wear Black, starting at 10 p.m. (Central) tonight, Wednesday Jan, 27. Watch on Channel 16, Roku, Apple, Fire, and on the Austin Film Society’s Watch Public page.
