Goth Night Returns: First of the Year at Ding Dong Lounge!

Prepare for a night of unparalleled sonic exploration as Ding Dong Lounge and ACT UP Entertainment proudly presents the first Goth Night of the year, featuring two exceptional acts that redefine the boundaries of dark and experimental music.

Ex-Partner:
Hailing from the shadowy depths of Auckland, New Zealand, Ex-Partner emerges as a force to be reckoned with in the music scene. Initially rooted in the raw, unfiltered essence of punk and experimental music, Ex-Partner's sonic journey has evolved into a captivating blend of industrial, post-punk, and ambient styles. Each composition is adorned with intricate baroque melodies, creating a unique universe where the avant-garde meets unabashed showmanship.

Kids, it Makes no Difference, is an ethereal ode to the world of slumber and dreams. A musical voyage that beckons listeners to abandon reality and embrace the fantastical landscapes of the twilight realm. The accompanying music video, a mesmerizing 3D-rendered masterpiece, showcases an enigmatic figure morphing into famous faces, symbolizing defiance in a world of dreams.

Hieronymus Bosch:
A cornerstone of New Zealand's dark experimental industrial scene since the mid-'80s, Hieronymus Bosch stands as the longest-running act of its kind. Formed in 1985-86 as a two-piece, they utilized reel-to-reel tape recorders, loop effects, found steel objects, and an arsenal of classic analog synths and drum machines. Aptly labeled 'Junk Punk,' their sound is eclectic, unique, and unconventional.

From frenzied rituals in a condemned house to a fusion of goth and industrial in the late '80s, Hieronymus Bosch's sonic journey has been marked by sporadic changes, collaborations, and experimental shifts. Whether delving into chaotic, angst-ridden industrial punk/metal in the '90s or exploring electronic nightmarescapes in the late 2000s, Hieronymus Bosch's music remains deeply personal. Drawing inspiration from life, death, spirituality, and the complexities of the human mind, their compositions create aural imagery that mirrors their own visions.

With a discography that spans from cassette releases in the '80s to albums like The Dream Songs (2003) and Black Light/Black Star (2010), Hieronymus Bosch's impact on the global industrial and experimental music scene is undeniable.

Passion Crypt, Gravedigger, The Doctor, Charlotte Gloom, Twinkubus downstairs! Plus, Gaga Exterminator between & after bands upstairs!

From 8 PM to 4 AM, experience the haunting sounds of goth anthems as DJs Passion Crypt, Gravedigger, and more spin post-punk, industrial, and other dark beats in the main bar. Expect a night of relentless beats and familiar tunes that will keep you entranced until the early hours.

Join us for a night of sonic exploration, where Ex-Partner and Hieronymus Bosch converge with DJs to create an atmosphere of unparalleled darkness. This is not just a Goth Night; it's a journey into the avant-garde sounds that define the edges of musical expression.

Get ready for an unforgettable experience at Ding Dong Lounge!
