I (Operator OT) didn’t expect the show to happen this week, yet it did anyway. We debuted a new track by Vazum and played some tracks by artists who are playing shows in the Central Arkansas area in the near future. The following three blocks were a mix of goth, industrial, darkwave, synthwave, etc. and were mostly the tracks I played in my DJ sets at the September 10th Club Nevermore event. The fifth block was a set of hot new industrial tracks, then we closed with a couple of shoegazey tracks.
