Event Details

The horrifying theme of this night may be inappropriate for young children... and cowards.

Here in the Splatterhouse, we pay tribute to the sights and sounds of classic horror films and games. Our selection of Retro-Electro Horror-themed music spans genres from chiptune/video game music, synthwave/darksynth, dark electro, industrial/ebm, and more.

Zen Albatross assembles colossal obelisks of sound using antiquated game consoles, tape loops and improvised electronics. The resulting rhythmic constructs form apocalyptic dance anthems which rise and disintegrate into a surreal stream of carefully-sustained drones and noise.

Beginning in 2008 as a project to channel techno-political anxieties by pushing obsolete hardware to its maximum potential, Zen Albatross quickly became an active component of New York City's thriving chip music scene. They have since performed at dozens of events in cities across the US and Canada, including two appearances at New York's legendary chiptune epicenter, Blip Festival.

In the Dazzle Room, Club Diversion presents Phantom, a crushing marathon of Terror EBM, Dark Elektro, Hellektro, and Aggro Tech.
