Beyond the cruiser crowd on Whittier Boulevard and the neighborhood dive bars filled with old-timers, East Los Angeles boasts a mass of music lovers with a taste for the dark side. A new bar in the area is catering to this cool, creepster crowd, and a new night highlights the best bands in black.
Obscure Sundays had Rikk Agnew playing Christian Death songs last week. This week, the wicked vibe continues with seminal L.A. goth group Kommunity FK making a rare appearance. Singer Patrick Mata’s tortured tunes always hold up no matter who’s backing him, and with openers Texylvania and Experiment Perilous, this one will be a solid night of spooky rock and demonic dance bliss. DJs Rocco Horror, Virtigo, Dark Chrystal and Ralphie Nigmatic spin death rock, dark wave, industrial, goth and punk before, between and after bands.
Update: This show is now at Sage Restaurant & Lounge, 6511 Greenleaf Ave. Whittier, CA. 90601
