VNV Nation  

with And One

Emo, goth, and punk fans who don't go for dance music may already know the Euro-duo VNV Nation: Multi-instrumentalist Ronan Harris manned the samplers on AFI's smash LP Decemberunderground, while his thumping remix of "Miss Murder" caused a sensation in underground dance clubs.

VNV (short for Victory Not Vengeance) has been lurking around European clubs since the early '90s, when the previous decade still echoed freshly in its ears. Pulsating with industrial beats and ecstatic keyboards, original cuts like "Perpetual" and "Homeward" still stand out among all the '80s electro gems and EBM bruisers freshly unearthed and posted to YouTube.

When he's not programming for rockers, Harris heads up Modcom, a solo analog-synth project, and scores films. His hypnotic tunes are a perfect match for cinema. Stick around after the show for an after-party hosted by the fetish vixens of Elise's Playground.
