Die Robot (Headliner)
Cliff and Ivy (Opening)
Die Robot is an American Alternative Rock, Electro-Industrial band. This is future rock in a post-industrial age. Their sound straddles rock and electronic with a wide appeal. Unique, haunting, and romantic, Die Robot is full of angst and soul with the groove of a predatory animal.
Vince Christian provides powerful vocals and a fierce performance. Barbie Saint's strings are dark and passionate, combining not only bass and guitar, but synthesized leads simultaneously, a unique sound accomplished with special custom gear designed for Barbie by RMLfx. Zane Hamilton's electronic drums, keys and synth fill the dance floor and Rosmic Z's guitars accentuate an engaging performance, producing an intense electronic plus analog soundscapes.
Their name came about while watching the first Alien film. Bassist Barbie Saint shrieked “Die Robot!” as Ripley fought Ash the Android, and there they had it. The four piece is techno punk; Colorful, energetic, a little bit sci-fi and a little bit Mad Max. Post-apocalyptic entertainment you can dance to.
Having released their debut full length album "Technopunk" in 2018 and since their formation, Die Robot toured around the USA twice with incredible turn outs, and performed with artists like Stabbing Westward, Clan of Xymox, The 69 Eyes, The Birthday Massacre, Orgy, Conjure One (Front Line Assembly, Delerium), Unter Null, God Module, 16volt, Vince Clarke (Erasure), David J (Bauhaus) John 5 (Rob Zombie), Julien-K, Night Club, Kite, among many others.
They are claiming a spot as one of the elite bands in the Electronic Industrial Rock circuit.
Cliff and Ivy are Alaska’s goth duo, and Alaska's only goth band.With a solid background in punk and metal, they bring a traditional goth/deathrock sound into a new world. Together for many years, their live shows are exciting, theatrical and poetic, with some spoken word and original art shadow masks for the audience to participate and take home. Inspired by art, punk, hardcore, old school goth and EBM, horror movies, no wave, industrial music, tribal music, current events and unwritten history, they have been compared to Killing Joke, Ministry, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Cure, and Dead Can Dance. They were named World Goth band 2019 by World of Goth magazine. Their music and art speak to your soul, proving that dark music and art happens everywhere, even under the midnight sun.

Adrian H and the Wounds (Headliner)
ADRIAN H AND THE WOUNDS are your post-goth storytellers. The immediate reference of their dark, brooding music with lyrics of great narrative power and poetic bent draw to mind references such as NICK CAVE, GARY NUMAN, LOU REED, but they are eclectic enough to keep on with this referencing further on and it would be better and more exact just to say that they’ve blended and absorbed all and out came their own superb poignant dark-wave style. Adrian H and The Wounds have a sound that is sinfully soulful and reminiscent of a night in a darkroom full of hallucinations, secrets and song. Adrian's voice and lyrics cut like a straight edge. He evokes impassioned stories of tragic love, lost faith and twisted taboos.
Solo-x is an avant-gadre industrial/electronic force that blurs the line between art, music, poetry, destruction & transformation. Solo-X is the brainchild of the poet solo, beginning in the bowels of the seedy underbelly of New Orleans in 2011 to finding it's home in the grime filled streets of Los angeles in 2016. With the release of their groundbreaking, epic first studio album 'Twitch' in June of 2020, since then having been played all over the world. Combined with the intensity, artistry & ferocity
of the live shows, it has catapulted Solo-X into the explosive, in your face force that it is today.
