Lesbian Bed Death
Carpe Noctum celebrates its thirteenth birthday with a special free event at Gasworks.
RHOMBUS surely need no introduction. Mixing male and female vocals with swirling guitars, driving bass and electric violin, they combine some of the best elements of traditional 80s/90s UK Goth, with their own modern, upbeat approach. In addition to their studio indulgences, they’ve cultivated an exceptional reputation for their live performance, winning over audiences and powering the party, whether it be in an intimate club venue or from a festival stage. http://www.rhombus.org.uk
Special guests LESBIAN BED DEATH make an overdue return to Bradford in support of new album “Riot of the Living Dead”. LBD mix up goth, glam, punk and metal in a ferocious live show. http://www.lesbianbeddeath.net
“An amazing blend of Lady Gaga, Nine Inch Nails [and] Muse,” BAD POLLYANNA are an alternative rock band with an overtly theatrical stage show and beautiful bold image. This is their first time at Carpe Noctum, and their live show is not to be missed – so be sure to get there good and early. http://www.badpollyanna.com
We’ll also be celebrating the release of “Shellacskin”, the debut album from SCANDACROSS, the new post-punk project from Sarahjane, of Novus and Faithful Dawn fame. We’ve got around 20 CDs of the album to give away to early arrivals – just ask at the DJ booth. http://www.sarahjanesspiral.com/
The notorious CARPE NOCTUM CLUB NIGHT continues on into the small hours afterward with its patent blend of goth, post-punk, industrial, punk and broadly dark alternative hits from through the decades. We expect and demand that it’ll be messy. http://www.gothupnorth.co.uk
Doors are at 7:30, with bands onstage from around 8 till 11, with the club night following on till 3am.
