When: Sat., May 12, 8 p.m. 2018
Featuring Michael Price and DJ Spider, Digital Nour is Charlotte’s darkest and most aggressive Goth / Industrial dance night. Goth, industrial, darkwave, death rock – like a demon spawned in the fires of Hades, the music cherished by Charlotte's dark community goes by many names. Regardless of terminology, fans know the drill: swirling synths, guttural bass, mechanized beats and sepulchral vocals either from the violated tomb or the soulless matrix – take your pick. Dark music will be on the upswing at Digital Noir, an evening of atmospheric dance music hosted by two mainstays of the city's dark subculture, DJ Spider and Michael Price. The event begins at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Milestone on Tuckaseegee Road. DJ Spider is the alter ego of Suzann Knudsen, who started spinning records in her birthplace of St. Thomas in the U.S Virgin Islands. By the time she landed in Charlotte, Knudsen had discovered the comic convention and cosplay scenes, which subtly influence her attire in the DJ booth. Price draws on his background in visual arts to create backdrop videos and lighting design, elements essential to Digital Noir's stygian atmosphere.
