Lenny Cartwright and Forensics Kollektiv present: Night Shift
SATURDAY, MARCH 24TH, 2018
23H30 – 06H00+
The sun comes down and with it the day shift comes to an end. It is time for the night shift to take over.
Creatures of the night, replicants, angelic faces and spectators hungry for strangeness give themselves to the carefreeness of the 80s in a club turned for a night into a house of the underground.
On the program: Live Concert, Drag Shows, New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave over two floors.
For its second edition, Night Shift welcomes a dear friend of Forensics Kollektiv who is no stranger to our stage, having performed at Tech Noire, our sister party in Paris: Zanias.
Zanias was born in Australia, raised in South-East Asia and now resides in Berlin. She was once known as the voice of the bands Linea Aspera and Keluar, and now performs and DJs as a solo artist.
Her debut EP ‘To the Core’ was produced in collaboration with Alex Akers of the band Forces, a process which was completed in a dilapidated beach house on Australia’s desolate and wild southern coast in February 2016, and released in September on Austrian label Noiztank. Tying together industrial rhythms and unearthly vocals, the four tracks explore an intrinsically human journey through loss and upheaval.
In addition to performance and production, Zanias is a member of Berlin’s Fleisch collective, an amalgam of DJs with primary careers as musicians and designers, and a taste for electronic body music, new beat, industrial, acid, and the darker, wavier fringes of techno. In 2016 their parties gave way to the founding of a record label, which made its debut with Schwefelgelb’s body music masterpiece ‘Wie Die Finger Durch Den Nebel’.
At the DJ booth, our resident DJs Al Niklaus, Bunker Bal and Inept Pernicious will be joined by three special guests. A staple of goth nightlife, producer of prominent underground parties such as Ceremonies and Death# Disco: Ian P. Christ; and resident DJs at Tech Noire, Night Shift’s sister party in Paris, and queer duo extraordinaire: Law & Haktion.
They will take you back to the sweet effervescence of the 80s with New Wave, Synthpop, Dark Wave, Goth, Minimal Wave, EBM, Post-Punk, Italo-disco and Retro Wave beats.
On the drag stage, our hostess Ghōst will be joined by Antina Christ, a figure of the House of Presents and a goth at heart, and Dis Charge, who comes all the way from Bristol to bring you the most outrageous show in town.
Night Shift is a LGBT+, hetero-inclusive bimestrial event.
We pride ourselves on being a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals, their allies, and women: our team consists predominantly of female-identified and queer-identified folks.
All of our DJs and our drag performers are individuals who identify as being part of a counter-culture and our drag shows also fall under the umbrella of our music genres for a complete immersive experience.
