Stay Slutty

The crowd at the recurring TechnoSluts parties is pretty much unlike any other. Think a colorful Venn diagram meeting of that rarefied overlap among candy ravers, cyber goths, bassheads, and fetish enthusiasts and you’ll get the vinyl- and hair-fall-filled picture.

For the past four years, this loose artistic collective has been mounting music events that upend the often-staid nature of the electronic music scene, pushing more extreme sounds from the electro universe. Be there Saturday when the TechnoSluts Four-Year Anniversary Party hits Club Mekka (950 NE Second Ave., Miami) for a show that marries the local and the international. Representing South Florida is scene-crossover favorite Otto von Schirach, who’s slated to appear, as almost always, with cohort Peasants With Feathers. The biggest name performing that night, though, is Combichrist, the project of Norway-born Andy LaPlegua (also known for forming Icon of Coil). The act specializes in punishing BPMs and volume and intentionally provocative, sometimes scary lyrics. There’s even a fetish performance by Rubberdoll and a play piercing show, for those who get off on getting poked with sharp objects. The party starts at 10 p.m., and tickets cost $25.
