Presented by Dark Sky Productions and Projekt Records, it’s Projektfest 2011, a dark and atmospheric orgy of fine bands and also vendors and artisans. Featured artists include:

Black Tape For A Blue Girl

Theatrical, dark cabaret since 1986. Old favorites.

Voltaire

Extremely odd, and very unique. “Morbid humor, murder ballads, and other macabre favorites.”

WEEP (featuring Doc Hammer of The Venture Brothers)

A very nice ’80s inspired goth/synth pop sound. I reviewed their debut album for Hybrid Magazine; really like them. Fans of The Cure, New Order and The Psychedelic Furs take note!

As I’m heading into what promises to be one wacky month of delicious music, once again I’ll be featuring just two shows for this week. First, there’s some smooth R&B/jazz/pop performers at cafe 939, including Merrily James, for her debut CD release party. I don’t cover this style of music too often, but these folks are really good, and café 939 is a wonderful stripped-down and intimate venue. That’s the sort of place to hear some pretty singing… seriously. At the completely opposite end of the spectrum is the Middle East Upstairs “Goth Fest” (with some folk and electro-industrial) on Sunday, with 1476, Black Tape for a Blue Girl, Emmy Cerra, Lucretia’s Daggers, and Sans Nomenclature.
