In our 2021 International Women’s Day show—in which we play tracks by women or groups fronted by women—we began the set with a set of industrial and electro tracks. That was followed with a set of darkwave and synthpop, and then a set of goth, deathrock, and post-punk. Then we wrapped up the show with a set of tracks that straddle the line between goth and shoegaze.

We returned to the air after with a set of new post-punk and darkwave tracks. That was followed with my set from Club Nevermore’s stream on 2/20/2021, which was mostly EBM to heat up the dancefloor. We played a set of old school EBM tracks after that, in honor of International EBM Day (which was last Wednesday, February 24th), and we wrapped up the show with a set of dancy EBM and futurepop.

We started this show with a set of brand new (i.e., released in 2021) tracks. After that I played my first DJ set, which was mostly industrial and hard EBM, from Club Nevermore’s December livestream, and I played my second set from that night, which was a mix of darkwave, post-punk, and synthpop. The fourth set was my set from Club Nevermore’s January livestream, which was a mix of industrial, EBM, synthpop, and post-punk. The fifth block was an Operator’s Choice set of post-punk tracks, and we closed the show with an Operator’s Choice mix of synthpop, shoegaze, and ambient.

That was followed with a set of darkwave and sythpop tracks. Then we heard a set of post-punk, goth, and deathrock tracks, and we wrapped things up with some ambient and shoegaze tracks.

We began our 2020 holiday show with a set in honor of the new hero of the holiday season, Krampus. That was followed with a set of post-punk tracks in honor of Winter Solstice. We followed that with a set of dark and twisted Christmas songs. Then we had a much more solemn set of songs. The midnight block was split between a set of quarantine/Covid19 Christmas songs—yes, that’s a thing!—and songs about New Year’s Eve. Then we put a bow on the show with a mix of festive songs. We hope your holiday season is as good as it can be in this stupid plague year.
