Black Masses

At Touch’s weekly Satanic Sundays, DJs Throat Yogurt and Feima spin black metal, goth, industrial, and some “very odd recordings that I’m not so sure were ever meant to be played publicly,” says organizer Eric Freeman. It’s all about helping people get in touch with their dark sides, he says. “Satan has nothing to do with hell, demons, eating babies, pitchforks, sadistic torture, demonic possession, or profound evil. Satanism is all about self-empowerment and using your inherent primal skills to achieve whatever goal you imagine.” It’s also about listening to some pretty gloomy tunes by Lamb of God and Ministry. Yet Freeman says he doesn’t want to merely entertain clubgoers, so each night begins with a discussion about all things Beelzebub. Then it’s on to Satan-themed music and movies. “I want to provide a night for those that enjoy a change of pace and appreciate an intelligent social venue,” he says.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
