Cold Waves in Warm Weather

Cold Waves in Warm Weather: Cold Waves is the annual industrial gala that is topped by Front 242, Nitzer Ebb and the Revolting Corpse (cofCockscof) at the Mayan Theater on Sept. 29 and Sept. 30. 

As written in a press release for last year’s event, “COLD WAVES has served the industrial/goth/darkwave/noise/metal community with the popular weekend festival since 2012. The forward-thinking, inclusive event goes beyond great music with a philanthropic mission to raise money and bring awareness to mental health, cancer research, and creating safe spaces in live music. Proceeds from the event will benefit the service industry mental health support group Darkest Before Dawn (www.db4d.org), a non-profit founded by Jason Novak, Kelly Britton and Dawn Szcymczakfollowing the death of beloved Chicago musician and engineer Jamie Duffy whose untimely passing inspired the inaugural COLDWAVES weekend.”

The full lineup for Thursday sees Front 242 joined by Xeno & Oaklander, Actors, Kite, and Leathers.

Friday sees Nitzer Ebb joined by the Revolting Corpse, High Functioning Flesh, Rein, and Spike Hellis.

Cold Waves in Warm Weather: The event takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 29 and Friday, September 30 at the Mayan.
