Back Event Apr 8, 2023 @ 7:30 pm By City Spark

Goth Night Out featuring Aurelio Voltaire, Ashes Fallen, & DJ Carnierobber at the Historic Colonial Theatre, Saturday, April 8th, 2023!

AURELIO VOLTAIRE Aurelio Voltaire is often described as a modern day renaissance man. He is a singer/ performer, author, creator of comic books, films, animation, toys and home decor.

An internationally touring musician, he is at the forefront of the Gothic, Steampunk and Dark Cabaret genres headlining some of the biggest horror, sci-fi and comic book conventions as well as Gothic and Steampunk festivals for nearly two decades. His music can best be described as a collection of murder ballads, tongue-in-cheek exercises in the macabre, with just enough bawdy songs about Star Trek and Star Wars to keep a sci-fi convention audience rolling in the aisles. Many know him for his songs “Brains!” and “Land of the Dead” from the Cartoon Network show “The Grim Adventures of Billy And Mandy” and for the viral fan animated videos for his songs “The Night”, “Land of the Dead”, “Stuck with You”, Raised by Bats” and “Chupando” (viral hits from the animated videos of Daria Cohen’s Vampair series, with a combined 71 million views on Youtube).

Voltaire’s live shows, whether solo or with his skeletal orchestra, are full of stories and games. Many describe his shows as sitting around a fire while an old friend regales you with tales, presuming that old friend drinks a liter of rum a night, dates zombies and wrestles Krakens.

Aurelio Voltaire’s 13th studio album, The Black Labyrinth, is a 20-song musical epic inspired by the 1986 film, Labyrinth. Voltaire recorded the album with 15 members of David Bowie’s band as well as members of My Chemical Romance, Trans Siberian Orchestra, The Gog is Dead, Vision Video and more! The Black Labyrinth was released on December 16th, 2022 and will be supported by The King of Villains Tour in 2023.

ASHES FALLEN Ashes Fallen are a gothic rock trio based in northern California. Ashes Fallen say that they are “forever chasing the perfect sound: meticulous but heartfelt, heavy but catchy, epic arrangements with simple melodies. Perfectly imperfect.” Although they honor their roots in classic gothic rock and post-punk, the band’s style is undeniably contemporary and original.
