/Welcome to the Future /224 /Events, Livestreams and new releases 16-Sep 2022

Quickly into mid-September already, and /amodelofcontrol.com will be away in Chicago next week, covering Cold Waves X (expect the usual report and photos, and potentially some content on FB/Instagram along the way). First up, though, here’s the new releases and suchlike from the past two weeks.

This post is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to upcoming events and livestreams both from this website and others, and also a catchup of what I’ve posted recently. Thanks to everyone who sends me new music and events, keeps me up to speed, and indeed simply reads these posts.

16-Sep 2022 / Gogol Bordello / Solidaritine /Official Artist Store
The first Gogol album in a while, and there are obvious references to the issues in Ukraine – but it is an album of hope. Not to mention their best album in some time, as they unleash their punky, anarchic side to the full.

I’ll let the blurb explain this one: “21 industrial bands celebrating 21 female performers from the 80’s and 90’s. Regulate this has truly become a tribute to girl power that covers a few genres such as pop to alternative to Punk and New Wave to even a little country rock. All proceeds go to the Global Fund for Women.

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added promptly, or be added sporadically.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week

Coming up over the next week or two will be /Tuesday Ten/504, and coverage from Cold Waves X in Chicago.
