Ahh, black metal and fashion, the two have flirted, well maybe the flirtation is a little one-sided. For every designer or stylist who has done a black metal inspired line/shoot/runway show I don't think there has been any album dedications in return. But the grim gotta wear something and occasionally the grim just happened to be inspired menswear designers like Austin Sherbanenko.
This season's Odyn Vovk runway show is at the St Marks Church on 09/09/09 and the afterparty is at Sweet and Vicious at 10 pm, DJed by yours truely.
I am incredibly stoked to be DJing this afterparty. It's a rare occassion when I can get away with DJing nothing but metal. The fashion week crowd isn't going to complain, it's thematic with the show. Anyone even slightly familiar with the line will not be expecting much else. Still after getting off the phone with my buddy Ryan Turner who is once again producing the show, my brain is pulsating ideas. Black metal and the darker side of thrash plus some more menacing Alice Cooper tunes. This is going to be fun...the list is forming...Emperor, Bathory, Whiplash, Darkthrone, Hellhammer, Blessed Death, Metallica, Savatage, Force, Sacrilege...sigh...
Oh and there is no uptight RSVP/invite only vibe to the afterparty so hopefully everyone will come from the show plus hopefully some stragglers from the Genesis P.Orridge opening I may be cursed to miss!
