Jay Watson is the host of his annual “Mental Spaghetti”, “Halloweenis”, and “Birthday Noise” festivals with the help of the Placenta family. They are true explorations of the psyche, with a barrage of the senses approach to life, love, sound, community, and visualizations….

His live show is full of controversial theatrics, drag, improv sound manipulation, crowd interaction, humiliation, toys, costumes, knives, hatchets, saws, danger, uncertainty and a mean buzz to kick it all off!

▲▲▲▲▲ 12a † JAYSEN CRAVES ▲▲▲▲▲
Detroit//BMS//Terror Network//Owlcave Records
Jaysen Craves has been bringing the ultra-heavy beat to † BL▲CK M▲SS † since it's inception. Co-conspirator of † BL▲CK M▲SS † and Owlcave Records, Jaysen Craves has established a reputation for heart pounding aggrotech and industrial sets. Jaysen Craves is also one half of the Detroit-based industrial powerhouse Terror Network, who has recently been blowing minds and speakers all over mid-Michigan and Detroit.

▲▲▲ 11p † EIN SOF GOYLE ▲▲▲
Lansing//BMS//Owlcave Records
Darkwave//Industrial//Witch Haus
Ein Sof Goyle has been operating clandestinely in Lansing for over 10 years. Founder of Owlcave Records and † BL▲CK M▲SS † events, Ein Sof Goyle has also performed live and recorded with Lansing industrial legends Tetanus, Rue d'Auseil, and Le Chemin Noir. Ein Sof Goyle is always at the razor's edge of dark electronic, bringing the newest and most underground dark spectrum music to the dance floor. Blending electro-industrial, darkwave, EBM, techno, and witch house into an energetic, hard hitting, and sinister sound.

▲▲▲▲▲▲ 10p † SKELLIE BAT ▲▲▲▲▲▲
Detroit//BMS//Terror Network//Owlcave Records
Skelllie Bat is perhaps one of Detroit's best kept secrets. Her nostalgic sets strongly appeal to the vintage connoisseur with a library that extends from old school goth, post-punk and death rock to 80s darkwave and industrial. Skellie Bat is one half of Detroit's elusive industrial juggernaut Terror Network and a † BL▲CK M▲SS † veteran, so get ready for an unforgettable dark retrospective.

Opfer Krankheit is meddling in the music of just about every current, active Michigan industrial band there is. Working with MOUTH SOWN SHUT, VIOLET VOID, and TERROR NETWORK, Opfer Krankheit brings us a DJ set of hard hitting industrial rock from the 90s on through today's aggrotech, EBM, and futurepop.

† BL▲CK ♦ M▲SS † events are a celebration of the dark styles of music and expression and we intend our parties to reflect this. Please
attend in appropriately gothic/post-punk/fetish attire or at least wear black.
At the discretion of the † BL▲CK ♦ M▲SS † door staff we
reserve the right to charge $10 cover or deny entry based on dress
code. Due to the limitations of Mac's Bar licensing and the cabaret
laws of Michigan, we ask that our patrons wear a legal amount of
clothing (electric tape is permissible but no visible areolas). No nudity
is allowed.

welcome at † BL▲CK ♦ M▲SS † events. Swastikas and other
identifiers of fascist affiliation are not compliant with dress code policy
and are grounds for ejection from † BL▲CK ♦ M▲SS † events.
It should go without saying that harassing or threatening any of our guests or patrons, whether verbally, sexually, physically, or otherwise, is also grounds for removal and/or ban from † BL▲CK M▲SS † events.See More
