The Birthday Massacre

In Winter, Thoughts at an End. 7 p.m. Thursday, March 30. $10, 18 and over. No cover after 11 p.m. for Violent Playground/ Encoder CD release. Phantasy Night Club, 11802 Detroit Ave., Lakewood, 216-228-6300.


If you're a goth-industrial fan, the question is not why you need to be at the Phantasy this night, but how you could possibly miss it. Toronto's rocking Birthday Massacre headlines the live-band portion of the evening, fronted by female vocalist Chibi, who works an angel/succubus duality like few others. Diehard rivetheads can stay for the latest installation of Violent Playground, the club's legendary industrial-alternative night, doubling as the CD-release party for DJ Cable's new Encoder project, which is heavy, sexy, and dark -- like all the other entertainment, but a touch more so.
