The all-ages event is introduced by MC and DJ Jason Pitzl-Waters from the A Darker Shade of Pagan podcast, and also features live music by Pandemonaeon and RaZor Skyline, a dark fashion show by Tombo Studio, and bellydance performances by Morpheus and Anaar.
Pandemonaeon’s tribal rock sound (http://www.pandemonaeon.net/) has been described as “dark tribal fusion with powerful vocals and metal accents” and “music for bellydancers in combat boots.”
Goth rock/industrial band RaZor Skyline (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-RaZor-Skyline/167528907843 ) features darkwave textures, gothic melodies, hard guitars and driving middle eastern beats.
Tombo Studio (http://www.tombostudio.com/) produces exotic fashion “for a new belle époque,” which will be showcased on stage & at several similarly themed vendor booths at the venue.
