Dark Victory

Children of the night, rejoice: You’ve got a brand-new option for getting your spooky on. DeathWish Night, a monthly goth/industrial dance party and concert event, kicks off tonight — and what better day than Friday the 13th to launch such a trip into the darkness? The promoters promise an eclectic mix that will draw from every inky, black corner of the goth and industrial sound, from psychobilly to synth-pop, traditional goth favorites to the dark side of indie rock. “It’s kind of like Lipgloss for people who wear black lipstick,” explains Charles Russell, aka OneSkinnyDJ. “We’re trying to go all over the place with the format.” In addition, Luxe De Vil Salon will offer free hair styling and color touch-ups, and Necrotek will celebrate the release of its CD.

DeathWish Night starts at 9 p.m. at Tracks Nightclub, 3500 Walnut Street. Admission is free before 10 p.m. for those 21 and up, $3 after; the 18-to-20 crowd gets in for $6 all night, but the first 25 in the door are free — as is VIP parking for anyone driving a hearse. Call 303-863-7326 or visit www.myspace.com/deathwishnight for more info.
Second Friday of every month, 9 p.m., 2009
