The crowd at the recurring TechnoSluts parties is pretty much unlike any other. Think a colorful Venn diagram meeting of that rarefied overlap between candy ravers, cyber goths, bass-heads, and fetish enthusiasts, and youll get the vinyl- and hair-fall-filled picture. For the past four years, this loose artistic collective has been mounting music events that upend the often-staid nature of the electronic music scene, pushing more extreme sounds from the electro universe. Be there this Saturday when the TechnoSluts Four-Year Anniversary Party hits Club Mekka for a show that marries the local and international. Representing the 305 is scene-crossover favorite Otto von Schirach, whos slated to appear, as almost always, with cohort Peasants With Feathers. The biggest name performing, though, is Combichrist, the project of Norway-born Andy LaPlegua (also known for forming Icon of Coil). The act specializes in punishing bpm and volume, and intentionally provocative, sometimes scary lyrics. There will even be a fetish performance by Rubberdoll and a play piercing show for those who get off on getting poked with sharp objects.
