President's Day is on Monday, and that means several people will be off work or school. With an extra day off, many people are looking to enjoy their extra day with a concert in the city. The fine folks behind Stimulate know this, and on Sunday, they're hosting a special President's Day event inside The Delancey. This event will feature a plethora of surprises, and two local bands will bring amazing performances throughout the night.
Athan Maroulis, who is best known as the frontman for electro-industrial outfit Spahn Ranch and darkwave band Black Tape For A Blue Girl, founded Noir in 2012 and quickly released the debut album Darkly Near the following year. The outfit has performed along the East Coast with Das Ich, The Rain Within, and Stoneburner. Last year, Noir released The Burning Bridge EP, which includes covers of Ministry, Duran Duran, and Roxy Music.
Garek, who is based in New York City, is an industrial rocker has been gaining attention throughout Europe with his first single "Save The Queen" debuting at number 11 on the European Top 200 Indie Chart, receiving praise from London's EQ Music, and garnering an appearance at the 2014 installment of London's Fashion Week. Back in September, he self-released his debut studio album Take The King, which features the singles "Stray" and "My Animal." The artist has performed in various NYC venues with acts such as Teeel and Hank & Cupcakes.
Since this is Stimulate's ninth annual Valentine's Blood Massacre, you can expect to see blood, cupids, bloodied cupids, and much more. There will be prizes for those dressed for the occasion, including tickets to Dark Side of the Con, which will be held at the Radisson Hotel Piscataway in Piscataway, New Jersey from March 17 through March 19.
Tickets will be $10 at the door, but for an additional $10, you'll gain access to the Fetish Tribe’s Suspension party on the rooftop. Doors will open that night at 9 p.m. If you're attending the sold out Mayhem concert at Gramercy Theatre that night, your ticket stub is good for free entry to the event.
The Delancey is located on 168 Delancey St in Manhattan. The venue is located near the F, M, J, and Z trains. Follow Stimulate on Facebook for updates,
