/Welcome to the Future /257 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 22-Sep 2023

This week’s post comes from Chicago, as I prepare for the first night of Cold Waves XI tonight. In the meantime there’s a whole lot to cover this week.

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.

A searing new track from Antigen Shift (the latest in their recent series of single releases), that comes complete with an impressive Leæther Strip remix.
20-Sep 2023 / Chelsea Wolfe / Dusk / Bandcamp
Chelsea Wolfe returns with the first new track in some time, and the doomy, guitar laden power of before has been swept away for gloomy, claustrophobic trip-hop – and it’s quite, quite great.

Hopefully the first taste of a new album, Chicago electro-heads Pixel Grip head for a surprisingly minimalist, punchy dancefloor track with Bet You Do.

/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.

Coming up this week will be coverage of Cold Waves XI.
