On Saturday, July 30, the dark, deviant and extremely well-dressed took over Bar 35 for the 5th Annual Goth Prom, hosted by DJ Nocturna, Camera Obscura and 80s Pop Muzik. DJs Nocturna, Rhombus, KSM and our own Nephilim Halls resident DJ Dark Cloud kept the small dance floor crowded, but the highlight of the night was the crowning of the year’s Bat King and Bat Queen – or in this case, when a menage a trois joined the contestants, Bat King and TWO Bat Queens! Enjoy!
Nephilim Halls Productions and Camera Obscura are proud to present the FIRST International EBM Day celebration in Hawaii! Held on 24/2, this night features straight-up old-school industrial music from the pioneer bands like Front 242, Einstürzende Neubauten, Cabaret Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Skinny Puppy, Laibach, Klinik, SPK and more, who helped shape the beginnings of the genre.
The term “industrial music” was coined in the mid-1970s with the founding of Industrial Records by Genesis P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle and Monte Cazazza; on Throbbing Gristle’s debut album The Second Annual Report, they coined the slogan “industrial music for industrial people”.
AllMusic defines industrial as the “most abrasive and aggressive fusion of rock and electronic music”; “initially a blend of avant-garde electronics experiments (tape music, musique concrète, white noise, synthesizers, sequencers, etc.) and punk provocation”.
On this special night, we acknowledge our roots with essential classic industrial sets by three of Honolulu’s veteran dark DJs:

With SPECIAL GUEST:
A special solo performance by PSYCHE OF PSYCHE CORPORATION. Psyche Corporation is from New York City, a dark fairytale electro rock music project named after a dream manufacture group from a future where widespread neural implants have allowed people to jack their nerve endings directly into the internet and download dreams. Songs deal in dystopian themes as well as the surreal psychological landscapes of sleeping minds. The musical style spans genres; a recent song has mixed tribal singing with classical piano while embedding poliovirus DNA into its percussion. Their sound is best described as a mix of trip-hop electro-industrial rock and alternative world music.
