Come spend an evening devoted to one of PTP’s all-time favorite bands: THE CURE. Dance from 10pm to 2am to tracks spanning the 35 years of THE CURE’s back catalogue, from the punk stylings of The Easy Cure to the band’s lovely/catchy 2008 comeback, “4:13Dream”, and of course all the records in-between. PLUS, you can expect tracks by Robert Smith’s collaborations (Cult Hero, The Glove & Siouxsie And The Banshees), Simon Gallup’s side projects (Fool’s Dance & Lockjaw), some Cure-clones who are so close you won’t be able to tell the difference (The Essence, just to name one), and possibly some tracks by The Presence & And Also The Trees for good measure.
With Guest DJ Alex Transistor from The Smiths & Depeche Mode Conventions (and regular collaborator from PTP’s Depeche Mode, Pulp & Britpop Nites)!

10.29 PART TIME PUNKS’ ANNUAL GOTH BALL with BLACK MARE + SECOND STILL
Part Time Punks Annual Goth Ball returns.
Black Mare is the solo project of Sera Timms, vocalist and bassist for Ides Of Gemini and formerly of the recently disbanded Black Math Horseman. With a focus on rhythmic repetition and atmospheric simplicity, Black Mare steps outside the collaborative dynamic to reveal a creative process that is all Sera’s own. Her songs traverse hidden realms, fragments of dreams, submerged memories and mythical imagery. Where Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini demand volume and collusion, Black Mare requires only quiet contemplation. If Black Math Horseman and Ides Of Gemini seek to summon the deafening roar of inevitability, Black Mare delivers its verdicts in solemn whispers. And yet each operates, in its own way, within the darkened spheres of hypnosis.
“Like looking at a snowflake under a microscope; beautiful crystalline ice in exquisite contrast to the black void that lies beyond.” (SECOND STILL, according to the venerable Lord Venom). For fans of Xmal Deutschland, Sad Lovers & Giants and of course Modern Eon (where the band name originates). TONITE we celebrate the vinyl release of the band’s debut LP. One of PTP’s favorite bands in the country right now! Come & see & hear why…
