Soft Leather, the wild underground party from promoters Johnny Love and Paparazzi, has been burning up the after-dark scene in L.A., providing LGBTQ fetishists and goths (and their straight but still freaky friends) a place to enjoy BDSM and get some EBM/industrial and techno dance action every Saturday night, “somewhere in DTLA.”

Last week, the promoters flew in Berlin's prince of EBM, Sarin, to cap off a month of fifth-anniversary festivities that also included a real blood rave. Support from Texas' No. 1 female industrial DJ, Misery Machine, and Cloak & Dagger resident Baby Magick rounded out the debauchery.

Though we can't tell you how to find Soft Leather, following its Instagram is a good start, and it's hosting a less private, 18-and-over event on Friday, March 1, at Boardner's.
