Club Antichrist 8th Birthday
V2A, Zeitgeist Zero, Plastic Noose
One recent Friday saw alternative fetish event Club Antichrist turn 8 years old. They celebrated with the usual erotic and alternative entertainment, live music, cakes and condoms.
One man band Plastic Noose opened the night with a mix of distorted guitar, beat loops and aggressive vocals. Dressed in what looked like a monk’s habit some of the crowd looked a little perplexed while others showed their appreciation with dancing and applause.
After a messy (literally) performance by erotic dancer MisSa Blue, Leeds goth ‘n’ rollers Zeitgeist Zero took to the stage. With the addition of a live drummer the group’s sound had more depth and the band had more of a presence. Glamorously dressed ZZ rocked through a set of their more dance orientated tracks including ‘Dance Or Die’, from their latest EP, and the suitably sleazy ‘When The Lights Go Down’. Despite the venue’s many rooms and other ‘distractions’ there was a dedicated crowd and obviously a lot of fans present in the audience who were enjoying the show.
Dee Christopher provided a non-musical break before the headliners finished the night off. Captivating onlookers with a mix of mind-reading, cheekiness and eyeliner – think Derren Brown trapped in Tim Minchin’s body – he was a welcome change to the usual strip and burlesque acts.
Hard electro duo V2A were finishing off the evening’s live entertainment with an industrial dance set. Ahead of their European tour with Combichrist the infectious beats were exactly what the crowd wanted and the brightly coloured group added a cyber splash of blue to Antichrist’s normal darkness.
