Bloodlust: DJs Gin & Tonic

Last Wed.   |   21+ Pony, 1221 E Madison St, 206-324-2854

I've not been to Pony's Bloodlust night, which happens every last Wednesday, but it looks intriguing. Hosted by DJs Gin & Tonic (a hail of booze for those names), Bloodlust spotlights "goth, synthpop, industrial, and deathdisko." Of course, with any genre, only about 10 to 15 percent of it is great, so let's hope Gin & Tonic will rigorously zero in on the killer cuts from those styles. And if they're taking requests, may I suggest something from Patrick Cowley's recently unearthed School Daze (Dark Entries), a collection of sinister gay-porn soundtrack music? Play the whole damn thing—there's not a bum cut on it. Bonus for you drinkers: Happy hour lasts all night. DAVE SEGAL
