3TEETH ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT

Tuesday, Oct. 31

 

Halloween Night at Empire Control Room will feature an eclectic lineup of dark wave, electronic and industrial dance music. Headlined by LA-based breakout band 3teeth, who will be making their first Austin appearance since touring with TOOL and Rammstein, their sound evokes the classic 90’s Wax Trax era sound of KMFDM, Ministry and the likes while offering a modernized perspective to the genre. Local industrial icon Curse Mackey (Pigface, Thrill Kill Kult, Evil Mothers) will also perform along with Austin’s buzz worthy SINE. Fronted by Rona Rougeheart, SINE delivers a dark, enchanting aura reminiscent of Curve, Garbage and Depeche Mode. Austin’s angular, blissfully chaotic alternative rock act Bloody Knives along with the mysterious modular electronics of Black Magic Cyborg round out this sure-to-be-compelling lineup. San Antonio’s premiere indie-electronic DJ Misery Machine will kick it all off. Doors open at 8 p.m. Cover is $10.

ALL SAINTS DAY SHOW WITH TROKER

Empire Control Room & Garage

Wednesday, Nov. 1

 

If Salvador Dali ever made a heist movie, then Mexico’s Troker would have been the soundtrack. Hailing from the land where tequila has long been its most famous export, Troker may just be the most important new musical export today. Troker’s sound careens between the sublime and the dangerous; a blend where metal riffage merges with powerhouse funk drumming and DJ scratching, with melodic horn lines pull from jazz and mariachi traditions. Troker is a band that cannot be pigeonholed into any one genre. The show will feature an album preview of “Imperfecto.” Ages 21 and up. Cover is $12 and show begins at 7 p.m. More information at empireatx.com.
