[Goth - DJ’d] The only regular Goth event in Nagoya, Stigmatic takes place on the third Saturday of odd-numbered months this year. That means you better turn up to every event, or you are going to be piking for 60 days for the next industrial-EBM-alt outing in Toyota land!

Soundwise the event’s master, DoomSpider, is harsh EBM industrial Goth with flourishes of lighter sounds mixed in. He’ll be joined by VenoMoth (aka Sister Levi) doing femme-future and elektro-Goth, and riz-K with elektro-clash.

They usually have 25 mix CDs available for the first 25 to book.

To book you need to send the following information to staff[at]stimatic[dot]jp:

  • Date of event you want to book
  • Name
  • Number of people
  • Contact number

As always, remember your ID for all-night events. Organizers will never bend this rule for because it could mean a whole world of trouble if the cops visit.
