Svengalisghost | Nightlight | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Sat., Jan. 5, 10 p.m. 2013
Price: $5

Chicago DJ Svengalisghost leans more toward the grit than the glam of danceable electronica, privileging dark, enveloping churn to bubbly bounce. There's a gothic (and intermittently goth) '90s flavor, like The Crystal Method on an Edgar Allan Poe kick. This mix of familiar dance floor elements with warped, threatening textures follows his influences: In June, Svengalisghost told electronica blog Truants that he'll listen to Sun Ra or watch B-grade horror films before making his own brand of digestible, if discomfiting at the edges, dance tracks. Bring $5 at 10 p.m. —Corbie Hill
