Because we’re all walking dead after New Years Eve anyway, the guys and ghouls behind Resurrection (the meld of legendary goth clubs Helter Skelter, Coven 13 and Sin-a-matic) wake from a not-so-eternal rest once more for a “Winter Gothic Ball.” Cloaks and hoods are sure to be sway at this one, especially with DJs Jason Lavitt, Joseph Brooks, Mike Stewart, Amanda Jones, Jason Farber and Xian conjuring old school gothic and deathrock faves, ethereal soundscapes and Industrial beatings. Photos by Apollo Staar. El Rey Theatre (just like the ol’ days), 5515 Wilshire Blvd., L.A.; Sat., Jan. 2; 10 p.m., over 18; $10. From darkness to dubness, The Roxy’s popular Scion House Party series kicks off a sure-to-be-dance-y decade with a fierce dubstep lineup for free: Seminal U.K. step-ster Distance, Philly grime-groover Starkey, MRK1 with MC Nika D and 12th Planet. 9009 Sunset Blvd., W. Hlywd.; Wed., Jan. 6, 10 p.m.; over 18. RSVP at
