Goth atmospherics + Industrial aggression + heavy hip-hop-ish grooves = sexy-hexy music. Whether we're talking about Dark Wave, EBM, and gloom or more recent sub-genres such "Witch house," "drag" (not this kind), or "screw gaze," sounds falling under the dark umbrella - especially the more rhythmic stuff- usually have one thing in common: they cast a sensual spell in a club environment.

What: Alchemy

Where: Palihouse

When: 1/26/2011

At last night's debut of Alchemy, the new gathering from writer Clint Catalyst and promoter Rich Royal, this was definitely the case, and the candle-lit, couch-scattered comforts of Palihouse (which, notably, touts a non-nightclub vibe) helped, not to mention literary interludes from two of LA's most beguiling female writers: Jillian Lauren (from her upcoming second book, Pretty) and Zoetica Ebb (about her experiences at a local dungeon). DJs Zane Landreth and Disaro offered their dramatic aural pleasures, though there wasn't much traditional "dancing." That's not to say there wasn't movement and ritual going down, it was just of a more seductive, face to face nature. Check out some snaps of the enchanting evening and see for yourself.
