Cold Cave's Wesley Eisold on UFOs, the Cure and his Upcoming Lipgloss DJ Set

You may want to include Lipgloss at Beauty Bar in your Halloween plans this Friday for a DJ set with Cold Cave's Wesley Eisold.

It's a fitting guest for the venerable party: while what often passes for goth today is very far removed from the music and subculture that laid the foundations, Cold Cave manages to embody the dark spirit of that music and its aesthetic much better than the poppy EBM and de-fanged industrial music that dominates that genre.
