Zeitgeist Zero + Psydoll + Tarantula Handsome
Entry Requirements: 18+
Leeds' very own ZEITGEIST ZERO always bring the party! Bouncy electro-goth anthems, crunchy guitars, bubble guns and glitter drums are all in their armoury.
Tokyo cyberpunks PSYDOLL were originally scheduled to play for us in April 2020, but we all know what happened to that. They're live favourites, they're made from iron, plastic and pvc, and they'll be joining us in April - plagues permitting - on their Aurora Explosion Tour.
Opening things up are Carpe debutantes TARANTULA HANDSOME, spiky glam goths singing about cheesy horror films.
CARPE NOCTUM is the biggest and longest-running regular goth club in the north of England, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. Our resident DJs HGV and Misrule boast a wealth of experience, with residencies at illustrious Leeds club nights such as Flock and Black Lodge under their belts, alongside guest appearances at clubs and festivals throughout the North, including repeat appearances at Goth City Festival, Tomorrow's Ghosts, and Infest. Weaving sets from a broad palette of dark alternative genres and subgenres, fuelling and fuelled by the dancefloor, their ethos is that the party is all! Expect tracks old and new, bona-fide classics and hidden gems, foot-stompers and lightbulb-changers. https://www.facebook.com/Goth.Up.North/ THE LENDING ROOM is Leeds' finest big small venue!

Industrial goth fused with powerful vocals and gritty electronics
