Nitzer Ebb Will Prove Goth's Still Cool at Grand Central
No matter how outdated the goth subculture may seem to others, it still keeps chugging along. And '80s industrial rockers Nitzer Ebb — made up of Bon Harris, Douglas McCarthy, and Jason Payne — are a prime example. Coming from the same gene pool that bred Depeche Mode and Front 242, the trio's sound is moody, dark, and heavy on the synthesizers. Its latest release, 2010's Industrial Complex, has the band churning out tunes that have you feeling like Reagan never left office.
That said, the threesome has earned the right to be unapologetically dated. After all, the Ebb made a name for itself with genuine hard beat classics like "Fun to Be Had," which even the grandfather of funk himself, George Clinton, took a stab at remixing back in 1990. You can't deny the crew its credit, and don't miss this show. The band hasn't made a South Florida stop since a 1992 gig at Hallandale Beach's Button South, and who wants to wait until 2028?
