The Delirious Insomniac Annual Live Event

The Delirious Insomniac Annual Live Event

Galdron is a costumed black metal band that sort of looks like a mixture of scenes from ALIEN mixed with the Misfits. Their black metal is probably kitschy but I take it seriously because I don't understand what they're saying. one of the best acts I've seen in years.

WILT is probably the first noise act I've seen around 2002. They mix death industrial, dark ambient, and the best things you've heard from horror soundtracks in one bundle, with a steady balance of power electronics sensibilities and musique concrete mannerisms. They are brilliant, and they haven't played in Chicago since 2008. Their material has been released on labels such as Ad Noiseam and Bloodlust!. Their influence on Chicago experimental music is not to be understated.

Gas Mask Horse is Josh Piotrowski of grindcore band DISROBE. He was also the lead singer in the band URETHRA FRANKLIN & THE GHETTO CHILDREN in the 90s. GAS MASK HORSE came about after Josh created music for a haunted house that he'd built in the basement of some co-op. Often, Piotrowski augments his performances with wax scuptures and props, along with incense and costumes. Words don't do justice, the man is a true DIY zombie commando stalwart.

DJ Arvo Fingers has been heading the Delirious Insomniac Freeform Radio Show on WLUW more recently with the help of some friends, since 2007, syndicated in Croatia on since 2009. He's also been working at haunted houses since he was 14, and doing noise music since 2000. For this night, he will be playing his favorite halloween themed music and sound effects records, of which he has been collecting for years. He will also be doing a short performance under the name "Blood Rhythms".

Hope to see you there!
